Wildcats have dropped their last 6 games going back to before the break and they have a hard time with the team from the Island Capital who are coming off a 6-4 loss to the Halifax Mooseheads last night in Halifax. The Rocket sit last in the Maritime Division at 8-25-2-2 for 20 points but 3 of their 8 wins have come against the Wildcats.
Wildcats still without the services of Devon MacAusland lower body but is expected to be back January 10. Marek Hrivik is day to day with headaches and Cameron McDonald still not time table with his concussion from back at the end of October.
