SUMMERSIDE – The Summerside D. Alex MacDonald Ford Western Capitals have announced the start time of a make-up game against the Yarmouth Mariners.
The two teams will meet at Eastlink Arena in Summerside on Sunday, Jan. 14, with the opening faceoff set for 4 p.m. The MHL (Maritime Junior Hockey League) game was originally scheduled for Nov. 2, but was postponed as preparations were underway for the Home Hardware Road to the Roar curling event.
The Capitals, who have won five straight games and six of their last seven, are back in action on Thursday as the Miramichi Timberwolves visit Summerside for a key Eastlink North Division showdown.
The Caps are 12-9-1-0 (won-lost-overtime losses-shootout losses), one point behind the third-place Timberwolves (11-8-2-2).
It will be the second meeting in less than a week between the two teams after the Caps pulled out a 3-2 shootout win in Miramichi, N.B., on Friday night.
