This was the proverbial "trap game" for the Bisons. The intensity level was half (or less) than it was for the Alberta series a weekend ago. Combined with a series of bad bounces and a hot goaltender and just like that the Banjocats have their first win of the season.

 

Here's how they lined up:

 

MANITOBA

Goal:
35 Spriggs (1 Paulic)

 

Defence:
2 Henry 3 Christensen
23 Dwyer 11 Dyck
24 Lenchyschyn 5 Paradoski

 

Forwards:
21 Brooks 15 Jameson 12 Zajak
9 Franko 28 Stovin 8 Bolton
29 Wasylak 10 Skoleski 4 Nault
22 Leipsic 14 Freeman 26 Leblanc

 

Scratches:
16 Martin 18 Armour 25 Skrumeda
27 Doerksen 30 Brown 34 Sydora

 

REGINA   

Goal:
31 MacAuley (35 Herringer)

 

Defence:
2 Hilsendager 7 King
28 Peel 5 Burns
27 Riddle 22 Eisler

 

Forwards:
23 Miller 13 Frei 32 Zborosky
10 Eskra 8 Anderson 12 Stevely
16 McPhee 9 Chaulk 14 Coughlin
20 Duperreault 17 Kosloski 19 Marr

 

Scratches:
4 Schacher 11 Odelein 18 Adams
21 Kreklewich 24 Hicks 29 Campbell
30 Holtby

 

The 1st period was a quick pace with lots of shots but no goals, Regina holding a 16-13 lead in shots.

 

While still scoreless in the 2nd period, the Bisons started to take control of the game and went to the PP. However, Kitten Zach McPhee drifted what should have been a non-dangerous shot past Byron Spriggs. Arthur Miller completed the story of the 2nd period by making it 2-0 on a nice passing play flowing from an Adam Henry turnover.

The 3rd period got off to a rough start. Brandon Paradoski, making his first start in a regular season game, was knocked down in the corner and rather than hold the puck, he passed it into the slot directly to Regina's Corey Kosloski. That made it 3-0, and sent the Bisons into scramble mode. Lots of chances were generated, but only Brett Brooks notched a goal.

 

Bad give-aways were the theme of the night for the Bisons. There were at least a half-dozen glaring ones.

In the end, Dawson MacAuley's 36 saves led to Kittens to their first win of 2018-19.

 

The rematch goes Saturday at 2:00 p.m.

There goes the unbeaten season for the T-irds. The 11:00 a.m. start time did not allow the British Californians time to wake up. Bedrock U outshot them 17-4 and outscored them 3-0 in the 1st period. Jordan Papirny got the win, and Rylan Toth was tagged with the loss.

The Evil Monkeys had a narrow escape in this one. The Bluegars are having tough luck, so it will seem. I might have to watch the replay of this on CanadaWest.tv. Zach Sawchenko stopped 16 of 19 shots for the win, and Colin Cooper stopped 22 of 26 shots for the loss. Luke Philp had two goals for the Apes.

The Banjomutts are clearly off to the best start in the CW. Garret Hughson stopped 49 of 54 shots in taking the loss for the Hørny Ønes. Taran Kozun faced just 13 shots for the shutout. He could have been selling dog biscuits in the stands.

The Bisons started this one dominating the Kittens. Kamerin Nault and Adam Henry scored 1st period goals to give the Herd a 2-0 lead heading to the intermission. They managed to amass the lead despite being shorthanded 3 times.

The Bisons started shorthanded in the 2nd as well, but the 2-0 lead lasted until 15 minutes into the 2nd period. Dasan Sydora got his 2nd start of the season and held the fort. But the 18 shots he faced made a goal inevitable. Both goals were scored by defencemen (Tyler King and Brennan Riddle). The 2nd goal sailed over Sydora's right shoulder from the blueline. Sometimes you see why goalies these days are over 6 feet tall.

So with the game tied heading to the 3rd period, the Bisons couldn't get a break. They were given 3 more penalties and were quite outraged over non-calls, such that one of the penalties called on them was a bench minor. In any event Zak Zborosky nothced himself a natural hat-trick to start the 3rd period to turn the game around. The Bisons launched some intense pressure of their own at the end but an empty net goal stopped the comeback.

Here's how they lined up:

MANITOBA

Goal:
34 Sydora (35 Spriggs)

Defence:
2 Henry 3 Christensen
23 Dwyer 11 Dyck
24 Lenchyschyn

Forwards:
9 Franko 28 Stovin 8 Bolton
29 Wasylak 15 Jameson 12 Zajak
22 Leipsic 10 Skoleski 4 Nault
18 Armour 14 Freeman 26 Leblanc
21 Brooks

Scratches:
1 Paulic 5 Paradoski 16 Martin
25 Skrumeda 27 Doerksen 30 Brown

I believe that Brooks was injured early on and I only noticed him once.

REGINA   

Goal:
31 MacAuley (35 Herringer)

Defence:
2 Hilsendager 7 King
27 Riddle 5 Burns
28 Peel 22 Eisler

Forwards:
23 Miller 13 Frei 32 Zborosky
14 Coughlin 9 Chaulk 16 McPhee
10 Eskra 12 Stevely 8 Anderson
20 Duperreault 17 Kosloski 19 Marr

Scratches:
4 Schacher 11 Odelein 18 Adams
21 Kreklewich 24 Hicks 29 Campbell
30 Holtby

Dawson MacAuley stopped 18 of 21 shots for the win, and Sydora stopped 34 of 39 in the loss. Kamerin Nault had two goals for the Herd.

The Bisons fall to 2-4-0, and the Banjocats jump to 2-3-1. The Bisons are away to MRU next weekend.

That illusory 4-0-0 start for the T-irds has come crashing down. The standings in the CW have tightened up considerably this weekend. Patrick Dea stopped just 19 of 27 shots for the T-irds and Matthew Greenfield stopped 29 of 31 for the win. Three Dinos scored two goals each (Mitch Cook, Bradley Schoonbaert, and Chris Rauckman).

The Monkeys scored with just 14 seconds left to force overtime, while on a PP and with an empty net. So two OTWs for the Apes gives them a somewhat deceptive 4-2-0 record. Kenny Cameron stopped 18 of 20 shots for the win, and Colin Cooper stopped 37 of 40 shots for the loss. Curtis Miske's winning goal was his second of the game.

Taran Kozun had 12 saves for his second consecutive shutout. Taz Burman stopped 55 of an incredible 59 shots for the loss. Garrett Hughson came on to play just over a minute and stopped two more. That's a lot of shots for the Hørny Ønes to allow. Levi Cable scored twice for the Mutts.

Every now and then there comes a story about the return of hockey to Newfoundland. Here's the latest!

When M.U.N. was known as the Beothucks they played local senior hockey until 1968-69 when they joined the AIAA (forerunner to the AUS). They returned to senior hockey in 1976-77 to 1978-79, and then were back to the AUAA (as it was then called) for three more seasons until folding the program.

It’s good to be back!

 

Unfortunately, after I bounced back from my own off-season surgery, the death of my business partner forced me to relocate in October. This left me no time at all for recreational internetting. I still went to the Bison home games, but there was no time to write about them.

Did the Bisons ever fall apart during my internet absence.

 

The big problem has been injuries. They usually had a short bench, and generally by two players. I have the impression that some players, though dressed, would not have been had options existed. In past years they could have overcome this. However, the early departure of some top-end and mid-range players meant that some Junior A bodies had to step in to key roles, rather than the support roles normally given.

 

How will they fare in the second half? Well, technically the second lap around the schedule started just before the break, and the Bisons split with Calgary. Decent enough. But now its time for the annual trip to Edmontown to face the Evil Monkeys.

 

The first thing I noticed was that there were just 16 skaters dressed, including a new recruit. Colton Veloso came from the Jacksonville Icemen of the ECHL. Last year he played for the Kootenay Ice in the WHL and scored 25 goals. He seems to be a skilled player and a strong addition.

 

The players not dressed for the Bisons were:
1 Justin Paulic
8 Liam Bilton
12 Nick Zajac
14 Thomas Freeman
18 Garrett Armour
27 Carter Doerksen
28 Brett Stovin
30 Tyler Brown

 

Tonight’s game was not as good as the two games played at the Fleming Arena in the first half. The Monkeys outshot the Herd 50-13. However, in the 3rd period with the score 2-1 the Bisons went on the powerplay and generated some decent chances. A turnover gave the Apes an insurance banana just as the penalty expired. An empty-netter at the 20:00 minute mark of the 3rd (isn’t that when the game is over?) made it 4-1 to enhance the scoreline.

 

Zach Sawchenko got the win, and Byron Spriggs took the loss. Riley Keiser, Jayden Hart (with two, including the ENG), and Trevor Cox scored for the Monkeys. Jonah Wasylak had the Bison goal, on a nice break-out play with assists to Zach Franko and Adam Henry.

In a scheduling oddity, the entire CW schedule is being played in Saudi Alberta this weekend. Moving south, we go to the Town of Bedrock.

The Mutts are in first place, and Bedrock U is in the third, so this figured to be a good one. This was very defensive. The shots were 12-8 in favour of the Dinos after two periods, though Sask held a 1-0 lead. Carson Stadnyk scored twice for Sask (his 9th and 10th goals of the season) in the 3rd to put the game away, once short-handed and one empty-netter. Taran Kozun got the win, and Jordan Papirny took the loss.

The T-irds picke dit up in the 3rd periodbut it was too little, too late. Ryley Lindgren scored his 8th and 9th of the season for MRU. Riley Morris got the win, and Rylan Toth giot the loss.

The Hørny Ønes have got it going this year, relatively speaking. This would normally be an epic battle of cellar-dwellers. Instead, this was a 55-37 shot clock shellacking. Sam McKechnie scored twice for Lethbridge, Garret Highson got the win, and Dawson MacAuley got the loss.

After being dominated on Friday night, the Bisons were able to bounce back with a solid performance that would have been enough for two points against most teams in Usports.

Liam Bilton was back in the line-up, meaning that the Bisons were only short one body.

 

The Evil Monkeys held leads of 2-0 and 4-2, but both times the Bisons battled back to tie the game. Here’s the quick summary:

 

1. AB Sanford, (8) (Kieser, Rehill), 14:13    
2. AB Legault, (2) (Kirichenko, Owre), 2:39    
2. MAN Franko, (6) , 3:07    
2. MAN Wasylak, (3) (Leipsic, Jameson), 7:14 (PP)   
3. AB Philp, (10) (Magee, Pawlenchuk), 1:50    
3. AB Magee, (5) (Craig, Pawlenchuk), 3:17    
3. MAN Leipsic, (5) (Henry, Dwyer), 16:27    
3. MAN Henry, (3) (Bilton, Brooks), 19:59    
OT1. AB Philp, (11) (Carroll), 3:23

 

Byron Spriggs took the loss, with 30 saves on 35 shots, and Kenny Cameron stopped 23 of 27 shots for the win.

 

Next weekend the Bisons will host the MRU Bluegars next Friday at 7:00 and Saturday at 2:00.

The Mutts had a hard time generating offence again. All they managed was 19 shots ibn being shutout by Matthew Greenfield. In their net, Taran Kozun stopped 26 of 29 to take the loss. Dane Gibson had his 6th and 7th of the season for Bedrock U.

The T-irds’ hot start is well in the rear-view mirror now. Their only goal was mid-way through the 3rd period when trailing 5-0. Riley Morris got the win (with 25 saves) and Patrick Dea got the loss (with 24 saves).

The Hørny Ønes picked up a convincing sweep on the weekend. Amazingly, they were outshot 47-41. Justin Valentino had 2 goals and 2 assists to lead the Lethbridge offence. Garret Hughson had 46 saves for the win, and Dawson MacAuley had 35 saves on 41 shots for the loss.

The final scoreline is misleading. This was a 3-2 game late, then two shorthanded goals changed the final outlook. On a positive note, the Bisons had a full 20-man roster dressed. Even though they had 7 defencemen and 11 forwards. Here's how they lined up:

MANITOBA

Goal:
35 Spriggs (34 Sydora)

Defence:
2 Henry 3 Christensen
23 Dwyer 11 Dyck
24 Lenchyschyn 25 Skrumeda
5 Paradoski

Forwards:
12 Zajak 21 Brooks 8 Bolton
9 Franko 15 Jameson 29 Wasylak
22 Leipsic 10 Skoleski 17 Veloso
26 Leblanc 16 Martin

Scratches:
1 Paulic 4 Nault 14 Freeman
18 Armour 27 Doerksen 28 Stovin
30 Brown

MOUNT ROYAL

Goal:
33 Morris (31 Cooper)

Defence:
6 MacPherson 7 Lees
2 Helgesen 11 Bobyk
24 Jensen 27 Baker

Forwards:
26 Rankin 17 Lindgren 23 Watson
15 Kroeker 28 Gerrie 8 Henry
10 Stephens 19 Chartier 18 Kennedy
12 Lipon 9 Zandee 16 Adamson

Scratches:
3 Roberts 4 Green 13 Bly
20 Simpson 21 Pankewicz 22 Arnold
35 Hoflin

The first two periods were totally different. In the first, MRU scored twice and outshot the Herd 14-7. Jessie Lees and Chris Gerrie had the Bluegar goals.

The Bisons turned it around in the 2nd, dominating territory and the shot clock 15-5. However, a bad line change and a fumble at the offensive blue-line led to a 2-on-1 breakout and a 3-0 lead for the Bluegars. Brad Kennedy converted Mitch Lipon's steal of the puck. Then a Bison goal was waved off due to a premature whistle. It looked like one of those nights. Then came a Bison PP due to a routine trip, followed shortly by a 4-minute high stick to the mouth of Nick Zajac, and a too-many-men-on-the-ice call. During those, Zach Franko scored twice in 5-on-3 situations.

With a comeback win a distinct possibility, the Bisons never mounted too much pressure in the 3rd. The shot stats said it was 13-9 for MRU, but it didn't seem like it. Nobody had a great shot on goal.

Riley Morris got the win, with 29 saves on 31 shots. The rookie is 8-1-0, 1.80 GAA, .929 S%. Impressive! Byron Spriggs stopped 27 of 30 in the loss.

The rematch goes Saturday at 2:00 pm at the Wayne Fleming Arena on campus.

Usually the Undercats on home ice can at least throw a scare into their fellow bumpkins, but not tonight. The shots were 40-12, favouring the Mutts. Sam Ruopp, Collin Shirley, and Alex Forsberg had two goals each for the Banjo Mutts, and Carson Stadnyk scored his 11th of the season. Back-up goaltender Travis Child got the win, and Dawson MacAuley took the loss. Perhaps the moonshine and banjo music will flow in Saskatown for the Saturday rematch.

This home-and-home series was played on a Thursday-Friday format. The Thursday game in Lethbridge drew 1,600 Hørny Fans! That game was 0-0 for over 53 minutes, despite Bedrock U holding a commanding 38-17 lead in shots. The final goal was an empty-netter. Jordan Papirny got the win and Garret Hughson took the loss.

Friday's rematch was more of a replay. The shots were 39-16 in favour of the Dinos. In this one, Matthew Greenfield got the shutout win and Garret Hughson once again experienced defeat.

The T-irds gave the Evil Monkeys a scare in this one. Though being outshot 38-28, it was close throughout. There were four minor penalties (none coincidental) in the overtime, two each. Zach Sawchenko got the win and Rylan Toth got the loss.

This was a game that could have gone either way. Once again, it was an empty-net goal which altered the scoreline at the very end. On the night, the shots were 30-29 in favour of the Bluegars.

 

There were no line-up changes from Friday night, but for MRU scratching Jamal Watson in favour of Luke Simpson, who I did not notice taking a shift.

 

The Bisons came out like they were shot out of a cannon. Liam Bilton notched his 4th of the season. MRU took some penalties for hits from behind, one of which knocked Zach Franko out of the game. Since they were already one forward short, the loss of one more made it a 3-line game the rest of the way.

 

Byron Spriggs got the loss, with 26 saves on 29 shots and Riley Morris got the win with 28 saves on his 29 shots. Morris the Cat is a good goaltender.

 

The loss leaves the Bisons 8 points behind Lethbridge for the last playoff berth. Next weekend the Bisons play Regina whilst Lethbridge faces Sask. After that, the Bisons host Lethbridge. Had the Bisons beaten MRU once, they would have had a great chance to vault into a playoff position in two weeks.

Taran Kozun stopped 25 of 26 shots for the win, as 5 different Mutts found the fire hydrant. Dawson MacAuley took another loss, with 34 stops on 39 shots. More disappointment for the Banjo Cats!

After a scoreless 1st period, the Evil Monkeys did a number on the T-irds in the 2nd period, outscoring them 4-0 and out-shooting them 14-2. Zach Sawchenko had a 17 save shutout for the win and Luke Philp scored his 13th, 14th, and 15th goals of the season. Rylan Toth stopped 20 of 24 shots for the loss, and Patrick Day stopped 9 of 11 in relief.

This was a battle-for-the-basement, but the win keeps the Herd's hopes alive. They close to within 6 points of Lethbridge, who play Sask today and the Bisons next weekend.

With Zach Franko out with injury (joining a long list), the Bisons at least recovered captain Brett Stovin for the injured list. They also debuted a new defenceman, Ryan Carlson, a transfer from Wisconsin-Superior.

Matthew Leblanc scored his first goal in the CW for the Bisons, and he Devon Skoleski (goal and assist), and Jeremey Leipsic (two assists) each had two points on the first three goals. It's always good to get some depth scoring. Defenceman Lucas Skrumeda also had a goal in that mix. Liam Bilton and Nick Zajac added empty-netters.

Byron Spriggs stopped 27 of 29 shots for the win, and Dawson MacAuley stopped 38 of 41 in the loss.

The rematch goes Saturday at 3:00, and hopefully canadawest.tv is up and running. Host Yare was doing site maintenance on Friday night just before 8:00, during the busiest night on the CW schedule across all sports. Bad timing.

The Bisons got the help they needed from the Banjo Mutts. This was a penalty-filled affair. I wish that I could have seen the shenanigans on CanadaWest,tv. A loss tonight by the HØrny Ønes would open the door for the Bisons to be in a playoff position next weekend.

The Evil Monkeys dusted off the Bluegars in convincing fashion. Shots were 38-17. Brendan Burke was back in goal for the shutout win and Graeme Craig scored twice. Riley Morris took the loss.

This was the annual Winter Classic out in British California, so they had a huge crowd. But the glory went to the team from the Town of Bedrock in overtime.
Jordan Papirny got the win with 18 saves on 20 shots, Rylan Toth took the loss with 28 saves on 31 shots. The slumping T-irds needed at least that point. Could they be the team that slumps right out of the playoffs after their amazing start?

The last two Cougar goals were scored into the empty net, so the scoreline (like on Friday) was a bit deceptive. On the night the Bisons outshot the Kittens 40-31. Matthew Leblanc scored his 2nd goal of the weekend (and of the season!) and a pair of goals by Jonah Wasylak gave the Herd a 3-1 lead in the 2nd period. Then things fell apart. Two goals by Zak Zborosky tied the game before the 2nd period ended. Brandon Holtby stopped 24 of 26 for the win, in relief of Dawson MacAley, who stopped 13 of 14 in the 1st period. Byron Spriggs took the loss, with with 25 saves on 29 shots.

 

The loss blew a golden chance for the Bisons to close to within 4 points of Lethbridge in the race for the final playoff spot.

Yet another loss by the HØrny Ønes keeps the Bison hopes alive. There was a lot of ebb-and-flow in this one. Lethbridge scored first, Sask scored four unanswered, then Lethbridge scored three straight themselves. A late 2nd period goal gave the Mutts a 5-4 lead heading into the 3rd. Oddly, nobody could score in the final 20. Taran Kazan stopped 21 of 25 for the win and Garret Hughson stopped 36 of 41 in taking the loss.

The scene switched to the home of the Bluegars but in the end the scoreline was identical to Friday night. Zach Sawchenko had a 21 save shutout for the win, and Colin Cooper stopped 16 of 20 through two periods for the loss. Riley Morris stopped 7 of 8 in the 3rd period. The Evil Monkeys had 4 goals on 6 shots in the 2nd period.

This double-OT win secured a playoff berth for the T-irds on a weekend where each team gained 3 points. Patrick Day got the win with 22 saves of 25 shots and Matthew Greenfeld stopped 31 of 35 for the loss.

This was a loss the Bisons could ill afford. Yes, they outplayed the Horny Ones (shots were 41-30) and no team led by more than a goal until the empty-netter. But the lack of finish hurt them, as usual, especially with Zach Franko i9njured and Kamerin Nault gone. Liam Bilton, Jereemey Leipsic, and Adam Henry (shorthanded) scored for the Bisons. The powerplay was 0-for-4, and that might have been the difference. Brooks Maxwell, Blake Orban, Sam McKechnie, Ryan Chynoweth (with obne minute left), and Jeff Rayman (into an empty net) scored for Lethbridge. Garret Hughson got the win and Byron Spriggs got the loss.

With an afternoon game following a night game, I need to leave and I'll give a weekend wrap-up later on. By the way, it was Bell's Let's Talk night and everybody got a free toque.

This was a whippin'. Shots were 41-17. UBC's hot start is firmly in the past. They are nowhere near being a threat on the national stage. Taran Kozun got the win, and Rylan Toth the loss. Kohl Bauml scored a pair for the Mutts.

The Evil Monkeys had a much easier time with the Banjo Cats than they had with the Bisons. Shots were 52-17. Yikes, life in the Regina net is hazardous. Brenbdan Burke got the win, and Brandon Holtby the loss. Luke Philp scored four goals for the Apes, giving him 20 (!) on the season.

With their backs to the wall, the Bisons achieved a very thorough victory to stay alive. A win by the Hòrny Ɵnes would have ended the Bison playoff hopes. As it stands, the Bisons end the weekend 6 points in arrears.

 

The Bisons were leading the game 4-0 after two periods and held a 31-21 lead in shots, and it seemed that Lethbridge had far fewer shots than in the official total. The only goal in the 1st period was originally awarded to Adam Henry, and as I post is still listed as such in the stats. However, at the arena they announced during the intermission that it was awarded to Brett Stovin. Stovin scored twice more (including an empty-netter) while Jonah Wasylak (suddenly a goalscorer) notched his 6th and newcomer Colton Veloso racked up his 1st. Russell Maxwell was the only one to score, breaking up Byron Spriggs' shutout bid mid-way through the 3rd.

 

Spriggs got the win with 35 saves. Oddly, he had to come out for 4 seconds early in the 2nd period after the officials had a discussion. Garrett Hughson made 27 saves through two periods for the loss, before Taz Burman mopped up.

 

Here's how they lined up:

 

MANITOBA

 

Goal:
35 Spriggs 34 Sydora

 

Defence:
6 Carlson 11 Dyck
2 Henry 3 Christensen
25 Skrumeda 24 Lenchyshyn

 

Note: On Friday, Lenchyshyn did not dress but #23 Dwyer did. Although Dwyer was listed on Saturday, I did not see him on the ice at all.

 

Forwards:
21 Brooks 10 Skoleski 8 Bilton
12 Zajac 28 Stovin 17 Veloso
22 Leipsic 15 Jameson 29 Wasylak
16 Martin 26 LeBlanc

 

Note: On Friday, #18 Armour also dressed and played on a 4th line. On Saturday Martin and LeBlanc were generally used to sub-in on other lines after the PP or PK units were out there.

 

LETHBRIDGE

 

Goal:
29 Hughson 35 Burman

 

Defence:
5 Rayman 44 Wardley
3 Valentine 7 Jensen
17 Filbrandt 4 Orban

 

Note: On Friday, Wardley did not dress and instead #24 Fisher was in the line-up. Wardley was ejected from Saturday's game, after which the pairings shifted shift-to-shift. On one powerplay, they used three defencemen (#3, #4, #17.)

 

Forwards:

27 Grant 8 Chynoweth 21 White
19 Valentino 28 Brown 20 B Maxwell
16 Gross 9 Sward 34 Sanvido
22 Roy 6 R Maxwell 12 McKechnie

 

Note: The lines were the same both nights.

 

Next weekend the Bisons are off to British California whilst the Hòrny Ɵnes have the unenviable task of a road trip to Edmontown to face the Evil Monkeys. My hunch is that the Bisons will have an opportunity to close to within 2 points. Will they take advantage of that opportunity?

The T-irds have had a serious power shortage. Perhaps they had too much Hillbilly Moonshine. Back-to-back shutouts are bad news. They do have a playoff berth assured but still aim for 4th place, and the opportunity to host a quarter-final series for only the 2nd time in the colour TV era. Taran Kozun registered a 24 save shutout, and Patrick Day had a 28 save loss.

This marks three straight shutouts for the T-irds. Holy power failure, Batman! The frustration appears to be mounting. Throughout the game they had two 10-minute misconducts and two game misconducts. Kyle Becker had a 5-minute major for charging late in the 3rd period and backup goaltender Patrick Dea got the heave-ho at the final whistle.

Byron Spriggs earned the shutout and win with 23 saves. A shorthanded goal by Sean Christensen and a last minute powerplay goal by Keaton Jameson providing the offence. For both it was their 2nd goal of the season. Rylan Toth took the loss with 20 saves.

It appeared that the Bison line-up was exactly like what they had on Saturday last weekend.

Now, with three games left on the schedule the Bisons are four points out of a playoff berth.

Saturday's rematch is on at 12:30 PST or 2:30 PST and can be seen on CanadaWest.tv.

The Kootenay Ice are moving to Winnipeg next season and will play two seasons at the U of M whilst their new arena is constructed. There will be some upgrades to the Wayne Fleming Arena, which will be a lasting benefit to the Bisons. Also, the new facility would make a wonderful U-Cup venue.

This was a double overtime nail-biter. Taran Kozun only had to make 14 saves for the shutout. Riley Morris's 44 saves were not enough as he suffered a hard-luck loss. Levi Cable's 13th goal of the season was the winner.

Bedrock U throttled the Kittens, holding them to just 11 shots on goal, including just one in the 3rd period. Regina will need a night of moonshine and banjo music to recover from that. Matthew Greenfield had a 10-save win and Dawson MacAuley had a 40-save loss. Coda Gordon scored two goals and an assist and Riley Sheen had four assists to pace the Dinos.

The Hørny Ønes were dominated by the Evil Monkeys, which was good news for the Bisons. The Monkeys jumped out early, outshooting Lethbridge 23-5 in the 1st period. Down 4-0 heading into the 3rd period, the Hørny Ønes raised no fuss in the 3rd period, being outshot 17-3. Zach Sawchenkoi got the win with just 14 saves, and Garret Hughson stopped 53 shots for the loss. He must be tired heading into the rematch.

Rather than being played last weekend, this year's Crowchild Classic got pushed to Tuesday night at the Saddledome. As usual, the game drew a massive crowd. The game was as close as possible. The shots were 31-30 for Bedrock U, and the final shot was the winner, scored by Riley Sheen (his 16th of the season). Matthew Greenfield got the win and Riley Morris took the loss.

      The Bisons also played in the UK last year and have twice gone to Germany/Italy as well. It is a self-funded tour and they had just 15 skaters and 2 goaltenders on tour this time.   On paper the team is weaker than in recent years, having lost 4 eligible to return players. (Two went pro and the others were all-star calibre.) Last weekend's 4th line was seldom used and were all rookies. The team has a lot of smaller players now, but they might do better with US-style officials than is typically the case. The still have hard-nosed guys who could fight, as was the case in the UK. If the Bisons give the rookies lots of ice time it could get ugly. Last weekend they were dominated Friday, but did well Saturday. I expect one decent game and one bad one this weekend.
