Dryden Ice Dogs of the Superior International Jr. Hockey League have taken to the road and will play away until the end of the month.
The Ice Dogs began a string of eight straight road tilts this past weekend and despite putting up 101 shots on goal over two games, Dryden lost both games to the Kam River Fighting Walleye by narrow scores of 2-1 and 3-2.
Coach Kurt Walsten’s Ice Dogs did score a big victory to begin last week, a resounding 6-2 home ice decision over the Thunder Bay North Stars in which Dryden fired 55 shots on goal.
At any rate, with a record of 6-8-1 and in fourth place in the SIJHL, Dryden heads to Thief River Falls this weekend for two games against the Norskies. And before the end of the month, it is a pair of road matches against the Wisconsin Lumberjacks and two more away contests against Thief River Falls for the highway Dogs of Dryden.
