vs MON

Your Halifax Mooseheads will look to continue the momentum that they gained the other day with a gutsy road win against the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles when they take on the Moncton Wildcats tonight. After a 7-1 loss in Moncton on Sunday the Herd will look to stop the red hot Wildcats player Conor Garland, who has 22 points in 9 games. The Herd will look to their captain to help with the offence which has been hot and cold so far. Halifax will try to tame the Cats for the first time this season and show that even though they are young, they can give the top teams a hard time. This is the first of a two game home stand for the Mooseheads this week.

Mooseheads: 5-8-1-1 = 12 points (5th in Maritimes division, 14th overall)
