Kelowna Rockets look for a win

The Rockets will take on the Spokane Chiefs Wednesday night

The Kelowna Rockets are looking to pick up a win Wednesday night when they host the Spokane Chiefs.

The Rockets were last in action on Saturday where they were defeated by the Kamloops Blazers 2-1 at Prospera Place. Defenceman, Dalton Gally says that the team struggled last weekend, but they’re looking forward to moving on.

“We just have to stick to our game and our structure,” said Gally.

“We kind of diverted from it this past weekend because it was a big game, I think we crumbled under the pressure. We had spurts and peaks where we were on our game, and then we had lulls where we went away from our structure. As a whole, we need to play simple and get back to playing Rockets hockey tomorrow night.”
