Langley Rivermen set to play Friday, Saturday, Sunday afternoon

The Langley Rivermen have their work cut out for them this weekend.

The Langley Rivermen are going to have their hands full this weekend.

The Rivermen play three games in as many days, starting Friday at Merritt’s Nicola Arena where they will take on the Merritt Centennials.

The Rivermen then head home to the Langley Events Centre for back-to-back contests, fewer than 24 hours apart.

The ’Men will host Washington State’s expansion squad, the Wenatchee Wild, Saturday at 6 p.m. and the Surrey Eagles Sunday afternoon, with a 3 p.m. start time.

Heading into the weekend, the Rivermen have collected points in each of their past five contests, with three wins and two overtime losses during that span.

Last weekend the Rivermen traveled to Prince George and swept the Spruce Kings, winning 5-4 in double OT on Jan. 21 and 5-2 last Friday, Jan. 22, before losing 6-5 in overtime to the Coquitlam Express on Sunday.

At press time Wednesday, the Rivermen were 25-17-2-1 and sat tied with the Wild for second in the B.C. Hockey League’s Mainland Division with 53 points, seven points back of the frontrunning Chilliwack Chiefs.
