Budweiser Gardens will be packed with purple on Saturday when the London Lightning host the Moncton Miracles in the annual Shine The Light game.
The Lightning will like their chances in Saturday’s game, hoping to feed off of the big crowd to help continue team’s recent run of form.
The Bolts come into Saturday’s game looking for their seventh win in a row. They were last in action on Sunday when they took down the Niagara River Lions to complete a back-to-back weekend sweep of their Central Divison Rivals.
Historically, London has had great success against the Miracles. The Bolts are 17-3 all-time against Moncton — which includes results from a first-round playoff series during the 2012-13 season.

The Miracles have had a difficult time this season — especially on the road. Head Coach Paul Mokeski’s side has mustered a 3-8 record so far this season, which isn’t helped by a 0-5 record on the road (0-5).
Saturday’s game will be the Lightning’s first against an Atlantic Divison opponent this season.
The Lightning will be wearing special purple uniforms that will be auctioned off after the game. Proceeds will benefit the London Abused Women’s Centre Shine the Light campaign.
