We have a back-to-back with Saskatchewan over the next two weeks, with the first game being played in Regina. I know we beat them on the road last time, but I just don't see any miracle comebacks happening for us this time around.
Saskatchewan is looking good. Durant is managing the game well, and Cates is looking like he did last season when he carried this team on his shoulders. The defence has gotten it together. They've forced a total of 14 turnovers in their last two games. I think they scored something like 30+ points on just turnovers tonight.
Granted, they were playing Winnipeg, and they're a garbage team this season... but still, you can't deny that this team is looking dangerous. Now we have a back-to-back with them. We were embarrassed by Calgary in the LDC, and then when we actually showed up for the re-match and played hard, it still wasn't enough. So what's the morale going to be like with this team?
After this back-to-back, we still have B.C., @ Calgary, and @ B.C. Five of our remaining eight games are going to be tough. I hate to say can, but unless something happens (still no headlines about Daley), I think we could be looking at another fourth place finish.
