vs BATIt’s Pink in the Rink game day! Come out and support cancer research in Atlantic Canada as your Halifax Mooseheads have a rematch against the Acadie-Bathurst Titan on home ice. The two teams met on Wednesday in Bathurst with Eric Brassard getting his first shutout since his time with the Charlottetown Islanders. Otto Somppi and Taylor Ford scored for the visiting team while shots were pretty even between the teams in Halifax’s 2-0 victory. Tonight’s game should be just as close since both teams have the exact amount of wins and have similar promising rookies, young defense cores and powerful veterans. Pink jerseys, pink fans, pink raffle tickets, all for a good cause should make it an exciting game between these 2 division rivals.
