Atlantic Attack bounce back against the visiting NRL champs

The Atlantic Attack welcomed the defending NRL champions, the Cambridge Turbos, to their last home game series of the regular season.

In Saturday game action, Jocelyn Landry scored two goals and the teams were deadlocked at 3 heading into the 4th period. The Turbos took the momentum of the game in the final minutes and scored four unanswered goals to skate to a 7-4 victory. Landry and Jenny Snowdon each had four points in the effort. Later in the day, the Turbos offense exploded for an 8-1 win. Jenny Snowdon scored the lone marker for the Attack.

On Sunday, Nicole Richard scored the game winning goal with 25 seconds left to lead the Attack to a 5-4 win and avoid the weekend sweep at the hands of the Turbos. Miguelle Proulx chipped in two goals in the win.

Martine Caissie remains the top scorer in the NRL with 54 goals.
The Attack will close out their regular season on the road February 13-14 as they continue the fight to secure a playoff series on home ice. If successful, this will be the first time the NRL playoffs have been held in Atlantic Canada. The top 8 teams in the Eastern Conference will make the NRL playoffs with the top 4 teams hosting a three game playoff weekend on their home ice. The Attack now hold a 19-6-0-0 record in 24 games which currently ties them with the Turbos at 38 points.
