The Hawks are coming off a 4-3 overtime win against Princeton Posse Saturday, and face a Rockies team that doubled up the Spokane Braves 4-2 on Sunday.

While C.V. sits in fourth place of the Eddie Mountain division with just eight wins this season, they have proven a tough opponent at times, tying the Nelson Leafs early in the season and beating the Castlegar Rebels in overtime 6-5.

The Nitehawks are looking for their fourth win in a row, and 15th on the season, as they look to make up ground on the Neil Murdoch division Leafs who are currently 10 points ahead of the Hawks, although B.V. has two games in hand.

The Nitehawks also host the Grand Forks Border Bruins on Tuesday at 7 p.m.
