Rangers Still in the Hunt for N.E.A.J.H.L. Playoff Spot

With their backs against the wall, the Vegreville Rangers found a way to pick up a big win on Saturday ...

Chase Brunet scored a goal and added two assists helping the Rangers to a 6-3 win over the Vermilion Tigers – a win that keeps Vegreville’s post-season hopes alive.

 

Brunet says his team knew the situation going into the contest.

The Rangers now trail the Tigers and the North Eastern Alberta Junior Hockey League's final playoff spot by 4 points with 3 games remaining with the next coming versus the Frog Lake T-Bird.

Brunet says they'll have to keep their game simple against the high-flying T-Bird offense which is coming off an 11-1 thumping over Saddle Lake.

The Rangers play welcome the T-Birds on Wednesday in what we'll be their final home game of the regular season.
