Scotiabank Centre (10,595) ~ Halifax, NS
vs CAP

Tonight is East Night at the game the first 7,000 fans at the game will receive a limited edition East Coast Lifestyle Mooseheads t-shirt. The Herd look to keep the momentum rolling after the win over the Wildcats last night. In that win that was one of the best games that we have seen them play all season. With five different guys scoring last night they are going to look for that kind of offence tonight when they take on the Eagles at the Scotiabank Centre. They are going to look to Eric Brassard for another solid performance as he has given them this year so far. Tonight concludes the two game home stand and as well they are concluding rivalry week with the match up against the Screaming Eagles.
