Rockets on a roll

The Kelowna Rockets host the Edmonton Oil Kings at Prospera Place on Tuesday night.

Kelowna is Coming off of back-to-back home wins on Friday and Saturday against Vancouver and Red Deer.

Assistant Coach Kris Mallette wants his team to keep the momentum going. 

"During our recent success at home we've found a way to win, albeit some of our games haven't been pretty, but nonetheless we've gotten timely saves or scored a big goal," Mallette said.

"Our message is to compete for 60 minutes regardless and lately our team has been doing that," he added. 

The Rockets don't get a chance to battle Edmonton very often throughout a season.

Mallette says the game plan is similar on Tuesday as it was on Saturday.

"We'll watch video of their last few games to get an idea of what their tendencies may be but our focus primarily will be about how we play. We'll then put a game plan together and it becomes up to the players to execute, and when they do we're a hard team to play against," he said. 

Kelowna enters Tuesday night with a record of 10-6-2-1, holding strong in second place in the B.C. Division with 23 points, three ahead of the Vancouver Giants, and six back of the first place Victoria Royals.

Puck drop on Tuesday night is at 7:05 p.m.
