Thunder looking to get offence going

The Borderland Thunder head to Dryden tomorrow night for what will be their last game before a 10-day break.
The Thunder currently sit in second place in the SIJHL with a 24-6-3 record, behind the front-running Fort William First Nation North Stars, while the Ice Dogs are in third with a 10-19-0 mark.
Dryden has yet to beat the Thunder this season.
After a weekend series here against the North Stars in which they tied 0-0 and then lost 4-0, the Thunder will be looking to get things going offensively.
“The pucks are just not going in the net,” said Thunder captain Josh McAndrew.
“I don’t think we’re doing anything too drastically different, but you’ve got to keep firing the puck on net and good things will eventually happen,” he added.
The Thunder have scored 135 goals so far this season (an average of 4.10 goals per game) while allowing just 81 (2.45 goals per game).
“We’ve just got to get back to doing the basics of what we did at the beginning of the season that put the puck in the back of the net,” echoed Thunder defenceman David Gooch.
“Once we get back to that, then they’ll come,” he vowed.
Aaron Boyer leads the Thunder with 15 goals and 24 assists in 32 games.
Next is McAndrew with 11 goals and 21 assists in 28 games, followed by Dennis Morrison with 15 goals and 15 assists in 31 games.
Kurt Hogard is next with five goals and 23 assists in 31 games, with Tyler Barker rounding out the top five with 13 goals and 14 assists in 33 games.
