After their loss Wednesday, the Cougars BC division fate is no longer completely in their hands. Yes, they still hold a two point edge on Kelowna, but the Rockets have a game in hand and also hold the tiebreaker. So the Cougars are going to need some help from Kelowna’s opponents if they want to put up their first BC Division banner at at the CN Centre this year. But not only do the Cougars need a bit of help, they of course need to keep winning themselves, which they didn’t do Wednesday in Portland. Tonight the Cougars take on the Tri-City Americans, a team they’ve beaten in all three meetings this year. They’re looking to clean up some sloppy play which helped cost them the game on Wednesday.
