It will be double-header weekend at Community Gardens this Saturday and Sunday when the Kensington Moase Plumbing and Heating Vipers host their arch-rival Arsenault's Fish Mart Western Red Wings. Saturday's game gets underway at 3:15pm and Sunday's game starts at 7pm.
It has been a while since both teams have played each other and with the Vipers magic number over the Red Wings at 2.5 both games are critical. The rivalry rekindled last meeting in a Red Wings win that saw the Vipers lose forward Tanner Mcguigan to a vicious hit to the head in the 2nd period.
These games also feature the top two goalies in the IJHL in Grant Grady (Vipers) and Chris Gallant (Red Wings).
