The Revelstoke Grizzlies were shut out in back-to-back games on a weekend road trip to the East Kootenays.

The Revelstoke Grizzlies were shut out in back-to-back games on a weekend road trip to the East Kootenays.

Revelstoke was in Fernie on Friday night to face the surging Fernie Ghostriders. The Grizzlies started with only 15 skaters and the bench got even shorter as the game went along as John Jamieson, Chad Thomas, Ethan Larson, Riley Creighton, Eric Austin and Jeremy McGregor were all ejected from the game for various offences.

The Ghostriders capitalized on the Grizzlies lack of discipline by scoring four times on 10 power play opportunities, running away with a 7-0 win.

On Saturday, Revelstoke was in Creston to face the Eddie Mountain division leading Creston Valley Thunder Cats.

Due to suspensions resulting from the previous nights game, Revelstoke only had 14 skaters dressed. Despite the depleted bench, they managed to hold the Thunder Cats off the scoreboard in the first period. However, Creston scored three times in the second and the opened the floodgates in the third, firing six pucks past netminder Jaxon Nohr for a 9-0 win.

Revelstoke plays three games this week. On Wednesday, they are in Golden to play the Rockets. On Friday, the Grizzlies host the Ghostriders at the Revelstoke Forum. On Saturday, the team heads to Kamloops to face the division-leading Storm.
