The Thunder head into the weekend winning three of their last four. A big part of their recent success has been special teams and secondary scoring. In their weekend series with the Watertown Wolves, the Thunder potted three shorthanded goals in the two games. They have also seen a rise in their secondary scoring, most recently with Patrik Tondl and Tommy Munichiello. Delaware will make the long trip up to Port Huron right after New Years, but look to continue of 2019's success.
Port Huron is also on a very impressive win streak, 8 in a row impressive. Port Huron has seen some great goaltending for Cory Simmons who is 6-0-0-0-0 with the Prowlers. So far, he has posted a 1.81 GAA and a .948 save percentage. The Prowlers had Matt Roberson just get called up to the SPHL and that will be a big loss for the team. Robertson had 38 points with the Prowlers in his 20 games played. They will look for others to fill in and help with the scoring as they go for nine straight.
