This past weekend was the tale of two games for the Moose Jaw Warriors.

Last Friday, they secured one of their biggest wins of the season so far, winning 4-2 over the CHL-leading Raiders in Prince Albert, but the next night they suffered one of their worst losses, falling 6-0 at home to the Portland Winterhawks.

"We went up to P.A., we all played good, we were rolling four lines and it was good, but we came back home, got a little ahead of ourselves, came out slow and it hurt us in the first period and we couldn't get back into the game," said Warriors leading-scorer Tristin Langan.Ormsby Jan5Warriors 19-year-old forward Luke Ormsby.

Last Saturday's loss snapped the Warriors' four-game winning streak and also ended the team's streak of five straight games with a point since returning from the Christmas break.

While it was a disappointing defeat, the Warriors are taking it more as a bad night and moving on.

"We faced a lot of adversity in that game, stuck with it and didn't bury anything, but it's just something to learn from, you can't have an on night and an off night, you've got to learn from it and regroup and we saw it today in practice, we all regrouped and are looking forward to Wednesday," said 19-year-old forward Luke Ormsby.

Langan added that the Warriors need to build off how they played in Prince Albert, which showed that they can compete with the best in the league.

"If we play like that every game, we have a really good chance of winning every game, so we've just got to do that, keep playing like that, forget about this Portland game and get ready for Wednesday," he said.

The Warriors will host the Calgary Hitmen on Wednesday night at Mosaic Place. Calgary enters riding a four-game winning streak and they've also handed Moose Jaw a pair of 5-1 losses in their previous meetings this season. Puck drop at 7 p.m.
