The North York Rangers (4-8-1-2) are looking to continue their momentum when they host the Toronto Junior Canadiens (9-3-1-1) on Wednesday night at home.

The two teams met once this season back on Thanksgiving Monday. North York was 15 seconds away from picking up a victory on the road, but with the goalie pulled JRC evened up the score to force overtime. Less than a minute into overtime, Ben Keon scored to hand Toronto the victory.

The Rangers forward Tyler Flack has been on fire recently. After snapping a four-game pointless streak, the captain has recorded nine points (two goals and seven assists) in the last four games. While line mate Myles Perry is starting to find his stride in his rookie season. The forward is coming off a hat-trick performance in a 7-4 victory over the Brantford 99ers on Sunday. He’s picked up seven points in the last four games.

One of the struggles the last couple years for the Rangers has been their power play, but it’s the complete opposite this season. The unit sits fourth in the league at 22.03%, while also recording a goal in the last four contests.

You can watch the contest on HockeyTV.com. Puck drop is scheduled for 8pm at the Herb.
