The team will practice in Kelowna on Monday and Tuesday.


“It’s just that we felt with the game being early on Sunday (5 p.m.) and with the two-day break that it would be good to get away by ourselves a little bit and do our thing. It’s about calming things down, settling down,” Ducks coach Randy Caryle told Terry Jones of the Edmonton Sun.
