February 8, 2013, Langley, BC (ISN) – The Trinity Western men’s hockey team (4-13-0-1) will look to get back in the win column this Saturday when it hosts Thompson Rivers (7-8-0-2) at the Langley Events Centre in the Spartans second to last home game of the regular season.

The game is at 1 p.m. and will be streamed live at

Coming off a weekend split with Victoria, in which TWU won 4-2 before falling 7-0, the Spartans chances of earning a playoff spot sit perilously in the balance. With six games remaining, TWU is six points behind fourth-place Victoria, who currently holds down the final playoff position, and seven points behind third-place TRU. With still two games against second-place Simon Fraser, this Saturday’s game is all but a must win.

The Spartans and WolfPack have played three times this year with TRU winning 8-6 and 5-2 but, most recently, it was TWU winning 6-4. The last time they played, the Spartans opened a 5-0 lead midway through the second period before hanging on for the 6-4 win.
