Dragons drop four in race prior to league playoffs

Dragons drop four in race prior to league playoffsThe Dragons need to dig deep and find the fire they were breathing just weeks ago as they approach the homestretch of the season.
    There are only four more games on the regular season schedule, and while the Dragons are in no danger to miss the playoffs, they have dropped the last four games. Moving up one spot in the standings may make their playoff hopes a little brighter.
    “We’re four back of Camrose and we play them (tonight). It will probably tell the tale whether we have a chance to move up,” said Coach Jason Hegberg.
    On Tuesday night, February 10 the Dragons hosted the Calgary Canucks. From start to finish Drumheller outplayed the Calgary team dominating ice time in the Canucks’ end, and out shooting them in every period. Despite this, at the end of regular time the game was tied. The Dragons’ goal came from Cam Lamoureux in the second period, assisted by Trent Colberg and Robert Nocera. Less than two minutes into overtime, Calgary scored.

Dragons apply the brakes

Only seven games away from leaving the regular season, the Drumheller Dragons had been frantically tallying up wins, with five wins to four losses and one tie in their last ten games.
Their 3-0 shutout loss in Canmore on Saturday nudged the Kodiaks one point above Drumheller’s 53 points, knocking the Dragons down to sixth in the southern standings.
Marking their first shutout since mid-January, the Dragons outshot the Kodiaks but could not find the net, as Camrose scored twice in the second period, one shorthanded, and again with five seconds left in the third on Drumheller’s empty net.

Dragons back on top

Drumheller seems to have found their fire, notching up a four point lead against Canmore on February 2, ending with a 7-3 Eagle-slaughter.
Dominating with five goals in the second period alone, including two on the powerplay from Nocera and Faryna, the Dragons are finishing the regular season in style.
The beastly Dragons are known for their use of the body, and on Monday they were as aggressive as their mythological counterpart, laying the Eagles flat out on the ice.
