Scotiabank Centre (10,595) ~ Halifax, NS

vs BAT

Your Halifax Mooseheads will be looking for a bounce back game on home ice after a couple of road losses last weekend. The team’s second leading scorer during the 2014-15 campaign is still participating in San Jose Sharks main camp but with another young team on the Scotiabank Centre ice tonight, we should see some quality scoring from the rookies. Ilya Putintsev and Otto Somppi, Halifax’s only forward rookies this year, didn’t disappoint in the season opener but went dry the next night. Bathurst’s record versus the Mooseheads the last few seasons has not been favourable for the Titan but we’ll most likely see another pretty even matched series like we did last year when Halifax went 5-4-0-0 against the New Brunswick team.

Overall Record
Titan: 0-1-1-0 = 1 point (5th in Maritimes division, 15th overall)
Mooseheads: 0-0-1-1 = 1 point (6th in Martimes division, 16th overall)

Team Leaders
HAL: Ilya Putintsev 4pts (1G & 3A), Otto Somppi 3pts (1G & 2A), Maxime Fortier 3pts (3A)
