The Peninsula Panthers are looking at the positives.

The Panthers have won their last two games, after not seeing a win since before the Christmas break. With three weeks left in the regular season, it’s the track the team wants to be back on said head coach and general manager Pete Zubersky.

“The belief is back and I see it every time we come to the rink,” Zubersky said.

After beating Lake Cowichan 3-2 on Jan. 27, the Panthers slashed the Westshore Wolves 6-1 Friday at the Panorama Recreation Centre in Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League action.

“We had six different guys score in the game and each of the four lines chipped in with a goal. That is a great formula for success,” Zubersky noted.

“Our injured guys are trickling back into the lineup and although we will still have four guys out on Friday, the situation has provided an opportunity for others to step into bigger roles … Depth at this time of year really matters. I love where we are right now.”

The Panthers battle the Victoria Cougars in Esquimalt Thursday evening before coming home to the Panorama Recreation Centre Friday for a fight against the Lake Cowichan Kraken. The puck drops at 7 p.m. in Esquimalt and at 7:30 p.m. in North Saanich.
