All-time series (Regular season): Bucks trail 7-13-2

2009-10: Bucks lead series 1-0

Last Meeting: 10/16/09: LAR 6, @BOS 1

After winning a season-high four straight games the Bucks are now winless in their last two, posting an 0-1-1 mark last weekend. Laredo lost two tough home games last weekend, falling to Odessa 4-3 in a shootout on Friday, before being shutout 2-0 by Texas on Saturday. The Bucks are currently 2-1-1on their season-high five-game homestand.

The Bucks enter tonight's game having played the least amount of games (13) in the Southern Conference, but are just four points back of second-place Allen in the standings.

Laredo enters Friday's game with a chance to do something that's never been done in team history, sweep the Mudbugs in the regular season series. Laredo is 1-0 against Bossier this season, and could sweep them with a win Friday. Jeff Bes (1-23), Darryl Smith (2-13) and Lance Monych (2-13) had big games against the Mudbugs in Laredo's 6-1 season-opening win on October 16th.

Bes leads the Bucks in scoring with 17 (5-1217) points, but has been held pointless in the last three contests. Igor Agarunov played in his 300th professional game last Saturday night, and will tie Steve Weidlich Friday night for third-place all-time in Bucks history with 301 games played.

The Mudbugs make a quick two-game South Texas swing this week, playing at Rio Grande Valley Wednesday before traveling to the LEC Friday night.

Bossier currently sits in fifth-place in the Northern Conference, and are just three points behind Colorado for second-place.

The Bucks will travel to Corpus Saturday before hosting the Ice Rays back at the LEC on Sunday.


Also on Friday (Nov. 27th) the Bucks will hold their Annual Teddy Bear Toss benefiting Jugeton's International. Fans can bring a teddy bear to the game and toss it onto the ice during the first intermission. For more information call 718-BUCK (2825).

"We look forward to having a big crowd to watch us play the day after Thanksgiving," Ruskowski said.

The Bucks will also hold a post game skate Friday night.


On Sunday (Nov. 29) the Bucks will host Corpus Christi at 4pm at the LEC. The first 1,000 fans to enter the LEC will receive a FREE CHL-TV Magnet, with a code to receive a FREE game on CHL-TV on December 4th when the Bucks are at Odessa.

Group tickets start at just $10, call 718-BUCK (2825) to order now!
