The Revelstoke Grizzlies stand in the way of the Kamloops Storm and a goal set by the local junior B club.
Head coach Jassi Sangha and his charges said they wanted to win five of their last seven games leading into the holiday break.
Kamloops is 1-2 since the proclamation, its latest contest a 2-1 loss to the hometown 100 Mile House Wranglers on Tuesday.
Revelstoke (20-3), which leads the Doug Birks Division and sits 22 points ahead of the Storm, can end Kamloops’ drive for five with a victory at Memorial Arena on Sunday.
Game time is 5 p.m.
“It’s not an easy goal,” Sangha said. “But that’s still the goal.
“If we play the way we can play for 60 minutes, we should be in a pretty good spot at the end of the game.”
The Storm (9-15) have righted their ship since a 1-9 start and are fourth in Birks Division standings, four points back of the Sicamous Eagles and 10 points behind the Wranglers.
Chase (5-18-2-0) is last in the division.
Sangha said Revelstoke and Kelowna (22-1-1-2) are the class of the Okanagan-Shuswap Conference, but it’s anyone’s game after that, especially in the Birks Division.
“100 Mile House, Sicamous, Revelstoke and even Chase, between us, on any given night, it depends on who comes out and plays for 60 minutes,” Sangha said.
