Nelson Leafs to get back to winning ways

The Nelson Leafs hope to spoil American Thanksgiving when they tangle with their US rivals in a pair of games over the weekend.

The Nelson Leafs hope to spoil American Thanksgiving when they tangle with their US rivals in a pair of games over the weekend.

The Leafs travel to Spokane tonight for a game against the Braves at the Eagles Ice-A-Rena. The two teams will return to the ice on Saturday night at 7 p.m. when the Leafs become hosts at the Nelson and District Community Complex.

After a hot start to the 2011-12 Kootenay International Junior Hockey League season that saw the locals in command of first place in the Neil Murdoch Division, the Leafs have slowed of late.

Last weekend Nelson came away even after a 4-1 win over Penticton on Saturday night and a 5-3 loss to Beaver Valley on Sunday.

The Leafs are 3-6-0-1 in their last 10 games and currently sit third in the division. The Braves sit in fourth place in the division and are 11 points behind Nelson, but have picked it up lately with a 5-4-1-0 record.

The Leafs own a 2-1 advantage in games so far this season, but lost the last match 5-3 on October 9 in Spokane.
