"As I told the boys at the start of this road trip. This weekend is a measuring stick as to where we are as a squad. Tonight showed the boys what it will take to compete at the highest level of the league this year," Coach Kennedy said. "Seattle isn't the three time defending champ of the Pacific division for no reason and they showed it tonight. The boys understand now we need to play three periods of hockey every night to be competitive in this league."
The Generals finish their three game road trip in Washington on Sunday to face the Puget Sound Tomahawks in Bremerton. The Tomahawks and the Generals met on Friday night with the Generals winning 4-1. The game will be on EGHN audio only with the pre-game show starting at 7:15, and the puck drops at 7:30pm.
