SAINT JOHN – The Saint John Sea Dogs’ pre-season schedule comes to an end this afternoon at Harbour Station.
The Sea Dogs host the Moncton Wildcats today at 3pm at Harbour Station in the pre-season finale for both squads. Moncton begins the regular season in Halifax on Thursday night while Saint John opens things up on Friday in Wildtown.
The Sea Dogs enter action tonight with a 3-2 record while Moncton sits at 5-2. Matthew Highmore leads Saint John in scoring with five points in three games while Liam Hynes leads the Wildcats with eight points in six games.
The two teams met this past Friday in Bouctouche in pre-season play. Oliver Cooper and Noah Zilbert each had two goals and Stephen Anderson one in Saint John’s 5-1 victory. Cameron Yarwood scored Moncton’s only goal late in the third period.
Sea Dogs goaltenders Sebastien Auger and Antoine Landry split the game and each looked solid once again. The two combined to make 30 saves in the victory.
There was some rough stuff on Friday, including a few fights. Some of that should carry over into today’s match.
