Wild Takes on Fighting Spirit in Weekend Series

The Maine Wild will get back in action after the holiday break this weekend, taking on the NH Fighting Spirit on Saturday at Biddeford Ice Arena and again on Sunday at Laconia.

Wild Head Coach Mike Tenney said the team has been practicing, and he expects the team to play hard this weekend, no matter what the results may be.

"We are ready as we can be after a 22 day break," said Tenney. "But everyone is coming off of a break. They played Minutemen (Wednesday night) so they have a small advantage because they got to play before we play them, but its a crapshoot when you come off a break. You don't know what the guys have been doing. Everyone has to switch their brains and their bodies back on."

Tenney said he has been reiterating that sentiment at practice.
