“I am okay with the outcome this weekend. Anytime you can get on the road and take two of three games it’s a decent showing but I don’t think we played to our full potential and that is something we have to straighten out if we are looking to be a team that sticks around in the post season.” States Head Coach Mike Beavis.
The Runners were without two defensemen this past weekend and had to jumble the line-up a bit to make up for the loss of the manpower on the back end. This week the team will be back at it during practice to prepare to host the New Mexico Ice Wolves in a three game homestand beginning Friday evening at 7:30PM at the “Spirit Ice Arena” in Bryan / College Station. Be sure to catch all the action live this week, Friday and Saturday at 7:30PM CST and Sunday @ 2:15 PM CST. All RoadRunners games are also broadcast live on HockeyTV.
