The regular season is starting to wind down, which means every game gets more intense for Missoula Jr Bruins hockey.

The Jr Bruins are currently in 4th place in the Frontier Division of the North American 3 Hockey League. And while they've clinched a playoff spot, they'd like to move up the ladder and improve their seeding for post-season play.

The Jr Bruins will be hosting Gillette Friday and Saturday, February 17 and 18. If you haven't been to a game yet, it's time to get out of hibernation and see what all the excitement is about! And as an added incentive and a way to say thanks for your support, the Jr Bruins have teamed up with Cracker Barrel Old Country Store. The first 500 fans through the doors at Saturday's game will receive a free gift compliments of Cracker Barrel. And everyone will be eligible to win dinner for two.

The puck drops at 7:30 both evenings at the Glacier Ice Rink, Western Montana Fairgrounds. You can visit the Missoula Jr Bruins website for ticket and other information.

The crowds have been terrific. Fans are loving the new seating and sound system, family-friendly activities and of course a chance to enjoy a brew from the viewing deck at the Big Sky Brewing Company Bruin's Den. They'd love to see you this coming weekend.
