Bears Look for Bounce Back with Triple Threat Week

This past weekend wasn’t kind to the Owen Sound Attack, but the Bears remain a top four team within the Western Conference and have a trio of games this week to prove that they do belong in the upper echelon of the conference.

First up for the Attack is their second and final meeting of the season against the Niagara Ice Dogs, with the last place Ice Dogs visiting the Bayshore for the first time since December of 2019. During the first meeting of the team’s this season the Bears claimed a 5-1 score, and used the game to rebound after a tough stretch in early January. The Ice Dogs have since dropped 11 of their 12 games since the team’s last meeting, which may provide the perfect recipe for the Attack to bounce back after a pair of tough outings this past weekend.

It’s then a Friday night showtime down in Mississauga as the Attack round out their two-game season series with the Steelheads. It was not a favourable outcome for Owen Sound the last time these teams met, as the Steelheads dominated the game, only allowing the Attack a measly 14 shots on net. Friday night’s game will likely be a much different story as the Steelheads season has taken a complete 180 turn from how they started, being sellers at the trade deadline and shipping off key players such as Luca Del Bel Belluz, Owen Beck and Ethan Del Mastro. Mississauga has shifted their focus to a retool, with 10 rookie skaters now on their active roster, but still boast veteran scoring threats with the likes of James Hardie and Kai Schwindt both up front.

Owen Sound rounds out their weekend with a rematch against the Flint Firebirds, after a disappointing performance last Saturday night in Flint. This will mark the first time that the Firebirds will be at the Bayshore since Game 6 in last years first round playoff series. That game saw the Attack feed off a ruckus Bayshore crowd on route to a big win, and Saturday night the Bears will be looking for a similar result to last spring’s game. Owen Sound learned a harsh truth last week, though the Firebirds sold some key players they are still a dangerous team in the western conference.

Tickets for both the Wednesday and Saturday night games at the Bayshore are available and can be purchased at the MacVicor and McComb Sutton Realty Attack Box Office by calling 519-371-7452 or by going online to purchase.

The Weekend Preview is presented by Joe Tomatoes located in the Galaxy Plaza on the sunset strip.
