Weekend Preview December 2,3

The Springfield Jr. Blues will look to keep up their winning ways this weekend in a battle with an NAHL Midwest division rival. Springfield (12-11-0-1) will have a two-game series against the first place Janesville Jets (17-5-0-2) at the Nelson Center this Friday and Saturday night.

A persistent offense and stellar goaltending have been keys to Springfield’s most recent success. Springfield has seen their goals scored go up each game, averaging 3.57 goals per game the past seven games.

An even better sign is with the improved offense, Springfield’s defense and goaltending has increased as well. In the seven contest prior to the current roll that they’re on, Springfield had conceded 26 goals in those contest collectively. In their past seven games, they have only surrendered 12 goals, giving up an average of 1.71 goals per game.

With a chance to move into third place in the NAHL Midwest Division, Springfield Head Coach Tony Zasowski knows the team cannot get caught up in their recent string of victories. “We cannot expect to win games this weekend just because of our recent victories. Janesville is in first place and it will be a tough test. We will need to stay focused on our game to keep things going in the right direction.”

The two teams face off Friday at 7:05pm and Saturday at 6:05pm. Presale tickets are available at both Springfield YMCA, and all Springfield Qik n EZ locations.
