“Looking for more energy – move our skates better,” says coach Anthony Greener whose AA Las Vegas Jr Wranglers 18u need a big win today in the Silver Stick Regional at the Las Vegas Ice Center on Flamingo Ave.

Las Vegas lost to Cal Wave 3-2 last night.  Today, they play Channel Island Riptide which lost its first game 3-0 this morning.  Las Vegas vs the Riptide is at 3 pm.

There are three opening-round games in this tournament, then the field of teams will be reduced to a Final 4.  Las Vegas will need to go 2-1-0 or maybe 1-1-1 might be enough to advance.

The hot team here is an awesome one – Orange County Hockey Club #1 18u.

“We watched them play last night,” Greener said. “If we play as a team (vs OC on Saturday) it’s going to be a good game, if not, a rough game. We shall see.”
