A hard-fought win over a difficult Nanaimo Clippers squad. Tonight was a tight-checking affair as both teams, despite all the shots, weren’t giving up much offensively.
Nanaimo was a handful on the fore-check, applying plenty of pressure to the Vees in their own zone and a team that didn’t pass up a hit.
The Vees get full marks for sticking to the game plan, and playing sound hockey from start to finish. The Vees didn’t get frustrated or quit when things weren’t going there way at times, but stuck with the process and did the little things right in the win.
A good “team” win against a pesky Clippers squad.
An early Christmas gift for Vees fans.
