Two of the hottest clubs in the Western Ontario Hockey Conference will meet tonight (Thursday, Dec. 15) at the Brock Street Barn.
The Strathroy Rockets, who have won five games in a row, will face off against the Sarnia Legionnaires, who have won four of their last five.
However, neither team will have a full lineup.
Jesse Drydak will miss the contest after picking up a one-game suspension for his role in a fight at St. Marys last week.
Also out will be Anthony Donati and Daniel Nikandrov (both injured).
Captain Tyler Cicchini may return after missing several weeks with a broken hand.
Strathroy, meanwhile, will be without five players who have received two-game suspensions for their role in a line brawl with the LaSalle Vipers over the weekend.
The Legionnaires have won the only two meetings between the clubs this season.
Goalie Kyle Washer will be between the pipes for Sarnia.
Jason Teschke has been the hottest Legionnaire of late, scoring nine points (five goals and four assists) in his last five contests.
Davis Brown has led the Rocket attack during their current rampage, scoring four goals and adding one helper.
The puck drop goes at 7:10 p.m.
