attack-rangersfullThe Owen Sound Attack are back in action with a pair of games against the Kitchener Rangers this weekend.

The Attack head to Kitchener on Friday night for a 7:30 pm puck drop before returning home for a game at the same time on Saturday night.

Kitchener currently sits three points up on the Attack in the Midwest Division and the season series between the two teams has been an extremely tight one, with both teams having won two of the four games played. Each of the last three games have gone to a shootout.

The Attack are coming off of a 4-3 loss to the Erie Otters on Wednesday night, a loss that was their 4th in a row, while the Rangers recently snapped a a three game losing streak with a 4-3 win over Ottawa on Sunday, Nov. 30.

Owen Sound's top scorers found their touch again on Wednesday against the Otters, with both Kyle Platzer and Zach Nastasiuk snapping scoreless streaks.

Nastasiuk scored his 13th goal of the season to snap a three game pointless streak and give while Platzer tallied a goal and two assists to give hime 10 goals and 22 assists in 26 games.

Kitchener will be led into the weekend by Justin Bailey, who has 15 goals and 15 assists in 24 games on the season.

Friday night's game can be watched live on Rogers Local 53 and listened to on Terry's Trailer Service Bear Radio on 560 CFOS with Fred Wallace.

Fans are reminded that Saturday night's game is the annual Toonies and Toys contest. Tickets are available at the DJ's Furniture Attack Box Office, online at www.attackhockey.com or by calling (519) 371-7452. Fans are reminded to bring a non-perishable food item for the Investor's Group Attack Hunger Campaign or a new, unwrapped toy for Toonies and Toys night in support of the Owen Sound Fire Department's annual Christmas Toy Drive.

This season of Attack Hockey is brought to you by Caframo.

KEYS TO VICTORY

In order to snap their current losing skid the Owen Sound Attack will need to put together a full 60 minutes of hard nosed, disciplined hockey. They've seen success thanks to a strong forecheck recently, and will have to bring that for the whole game to get four points from the Rangers this weekend.

15 G, 15 A, 24 GP

Much like Dylan Strome on Wednesday night, Justin Bailey is a player who will be playing with a chip on his shoulder after being left off of Team USA's World Junior Championship training camp roster. The big power forward is enjoying a career year with the Rangers, and will need to be a focal point of the Attack's defence. Shut down Bailey, and you likely shut down Kitchener.
