After the Klippers picked up four wins during their latest five-game homestand in Kindersley and Unity, they hit the road for five games starting tonight in Melville.

The Klippers will play the Melville Millionaires tonight at 7:30 PM from the Horizon Credit Union Centre followed by two games in three nights versus the Yorkton Terriers.

The road trip wraps up with another game in Melville Saturday night and then an Wednesday night showdown in Wilcox against the Notre Dame Hounds.

Although the Klippers have been on a roll over the last couple weeks. They have yet to lose a game in February, and with upcoming matchups versus teams lower than them in the standings, the odds are in their favour.

Despite the numbers being on Kindersley's side, they are not underestimating their opponents.

"It's a tough barn to go into, obviously with the travel before the game," said Klippers captain Cole Plotnikoff, discussing the team's gameplan tonight against the Millionaires. "I think the big thing is not taking anyone lightly."

Plotnikoff raises a good point. Last Wednesday against the dead last La Ronge Ice Wolves in Unity, the Klippers squeaked by with a 2-1 win after a goal midway through the 3rd period.

It was essentially the same scenario Saturday night in Kindersley. The Ice Wolves and Klippers were knotted at 2-2 going into the latter stages of the game thanks to an incredible performance from La Ronge netminder Jordan Frey.

A major penalty against Ice Wolves captain Drayton ThunderChief was the saving grace for the Klippers that night as Kindersley scored three goals on the five-minute powerplay opportunity.

"We still have to learn how to string together sixty good minutes," said Plotnikoff. "But it was good work on behalf of the team to comeback and dig deep for those two wins."

7th place in the league standings is within reach for the Klippers. They have four games in-hand over the 7th place Weyburn Red Wings who are only four points up on Kindersley. The road trip is a massive chance for the Klippers to climb higher in the early playoff picture.

Notre Dame, who is in 6th place, has six points more than the Klippers. It means next Wednesday's matchup in Wilcox has even more meaning to it as teams battle for positioning in the mid-table spots.
