I watched tonight's Vipers game online. The Vipers who have had troubles in Merritt this season, had troubles again tonight on the smaller rink. Vernon didn't see a lot of zone time, was limited on their chances through out the game. The Vipers speed and skill just didn't have the room to create/generate many opportunities. Since going unbeaten in 11 games the Snakes haven't been the same team since. The Vipers have struggled playing sixty minutes in most games since, haven't looked like the same team. The Vipers win just once in seven games vs Merritt during the pre-season-regular season, don't want to face Merritt come playoffs. The Centennials could be a team to watch come playoffs.
