Familiar Gens take on the Braves and Wolves

For the second week in a row, the Save-On-Foods Oceanside Generals have a chance to win a second straight game

David Anderson and the Save-On-Foods Oceanside Generals will be looking to continue their win streak this week as they took on the Saanich Braves Wednesday night (score not available) and then host the Westshore Wolves at home on Saturday night.

For the second week in a row, the Save-On-Foods Oceanside Generals have a chance to win a second straight game for the first time this season as they took on the Saanich Braves last night (score not available) and the Westshore Wolves this Saturday.

They now have a familiar face back in the lineup. Travis Flug is back after he decided before the start of the season he wasn’t going to play this year.

“I’m really excited to get back out there,” Flug said. “I started to get the itch to get back out on the ice and realized that I’d be making a mistake if I didn’t come back to play in my last year here. It’s only been 24 hours since I decided to come back but it’s been great so far, it’s a good group in the dressing room, better attitude than last season.”

The Gens are up against a Braves team that beat them earlier this season in the first meeting between the two teams. Saturday night the Gens host the Westshore Wolves, puck drop at 7:30 p.m at Oceanside Place.

Earlier this month, the Gens beat  the Braves 5-4, both teams winning one of the two meetings this season. Coming off a big win over the first place Campbell River Storm, the Gens are riding a high and are going to be looking to continue that momentum Wednesday night and heading into the weekend.

“We bounced back real well against Campbell River,” goalie David Anderson said. “We weren’t playing as individuals that night and when we play like a team, we show what we’re capable of doing. That win was a big momentum builder for us heading in to this game against Saanich and we’re hoping we can ride that momentum.”

Anderson was back between the pipes for the first time in over six weeks after dealing with an injury. During that time, Austin Caktas saw his fair share of starts and the Gens even saw a goalie in Joakim Jutras come and go after suiting up for a handful of games before signing down in San Diego.

“It’s hard to win games without a solid goalie,” forward Mathieu Jallabert said. “We’re lucky that we’ve got three good goalies that can keep us in games. Having them back there gives you more confidence up front and hopefully we can build on that confidence after that big win over Campbell River.”

Jallabert is having quite the month as he’s been on fire since his return from a concussion earlier in the season. Jallabert now has 12 points (four goals, eight assists) in 13 games and has 10 points in his last seven games. That gives the Generals six forwards who have hit double digits.
