The Banjo Mutts picked apart the Horny Ones as best they could this weekend. This does not make up for the 0-3-1 start, but it sure goes a long way. A 28-game season vanishes quickly. Carson Stadnyk and Carter Folk each had two goals for Sask, and Taran Kozun stopped 19 of 22 shots for the win. At the other end, Nikolas Amundrud started but was yanked mid-way with 11 saves on 15 shots. Taz Burman mopped up with 20 saves on 24 shots. Despite the sweep, the Mutts remain 1 point (!) behind the Horny Ones, who are now 3-3-0.

My guess is the Evil Monkeys were feeling the pressure after losing their Friday night home game in this series. They are now 5-1-0 (2nd place) and the Bluegars fall to 4-2-0 (3rd place). Tyler Soy Boy scored twice for the Apes. Brendan Burke made 21 saves for the shutout victory. Wyatt Hoflin started again for MRU, and stopped 29 of 32.

The T-irds needed a big 3rd period to put this one away. It was 1-1 after two, and a goal in the 1st minute of the 3rd set the stage. Rylan Toth stopped 29 of 30 shots for the win, and Brandon Holtby stopped 31 of 35 in taking the loss. UBC had 16 shots in the 3rd period. The wekend split gave each side their first win of the season. Every team in the CW has at least one win and one loss now. 

Next weekend the Birds come to town to face the Bisons in a Saturday night/Sunday afternoon double-header.

The T-irds, being located out in British California, do not face much 0of their CW rivals in pre-season. Last year, they played none of their co-CWs and this year faced only the Evil Monkeys. Then they started the regular season where their first two opponents were those same Primates and the Bedrock Dinos. All three series saw them lose once in regulation and once in OT. Not great, but nevertheless respectable for a middle-of-the-road team. All-in-all, it made them difficult to rate.

So then we got to last weekend and it was Tweety-Birds against Puddy-Tats. On home ice, a convincing sweep would have cast UBC in a favourable light. However, they needed the help of an umbrella-wielding little old lady to gain a split in a hard-fought series.

 

Now the T-irds are coming to Friendly Manitoba to face the Bisons, the very embodiment of .500 hockey. The Bisons were 1-2-1 against the T-irds last year, and over the last four years both sides are 8-7-1 on the head-to-head scoreboard.

 

One issue for the T-irds is injuries. This has happened before. Hockey in BC is not as rough and tumble as it is on the prairies. Therefore, my theory is that it requires some adjustment for them. The first thing I'll be checking is how many players they dress.

 

Their second issue is between the pipes, where veteran Rylan Toth has hogged all the ice time. He is 1-2-2, 3.68 GAA, .883 S%. His CW career numbers are 12-16-4, 3.23 GAA, .898 S%. Those are mid-range CW numbers. Backup Patrick Dea lost his only start where he surrendered two goals. Last year he was 5-5-1, 3.71 GAA, .880 S%.

 

The T-irds have no scorers in the Top 20. However, Quinn Benjafield and Carter Popoff both have 4 points, and Benjafield and Austin Glover each have 3 goals in 6 games.

 

Meanwhile, the Bisons have three players inside the Top 20 and two more tied for 20th. Captain and defenceman Adam Henry (2-5-7) and Keaton Jameson (1-6-7) are in a 6-way tie for 10th, Jeremey Leipsic (2-4-6) is in a 4-way tie for 16th, and Colton Veloso and Geordie Keane (both 2-3-5) are in a massive tie for 20th. 

 

Keane is quite a story. He was on the team two years ago and dressed just four times, going pointless. After sitting out a season, he's working hard, grinding it out, and contributing decent offensive stats.

 

Without a Bison game Friday night, I can focus on the other series via CanadaWest.tv.

Who doesn't like a good Cougar fight? These games will not be arguments about spilled beer and one b**** putting the moves on another's boyfriend. They will be only about 2 points in the standings. 

Now the Bluegars are on the move, and the Banjocats are desperately trying to pick up whatever scraps they can. 

 

The Bluegars opened with a sweep of the Banjomutts, followed by splits with the Bisons and Evil Monkeys. In so doing, they have turned heads from coast-to-coast.

On the other hand, Team Hillbilly has had it rough. They opened being blitzed by Bedrock U, and things looked dismal. Then came a sweep in Lethbridge, where they lost even with 41 shots on goal per game. But just when all looked lost, they posted a win at UBC last weekend en route to s hard-fought split. 

 

Players to watch? Well, Regina has no Top 20 scorers. Five players lead the team with 3 points each. Once again, they have three goaltenders trying to recover from shell-shock. Brandon Holtby has the best numbers, a respectable 1-2-0, 2.86 GAA, .912 S%. That could switch quickly. Rookie Curtis Meger is 0-1-0, 6.45, .839 S% and veteran Dawson MacAulay is 0-2-0, 9.47 GAA, and .750 S%. Yikes.

 

Meanwhile, MRU has 5 of the Top 9 scorers and 6 of the Top 20. That says it all!

This is the series I will likely watch first on Friday night. A lot of people might be surprised with my pre-season pick to place Bedrock U ahead of the Banjomutts. But so far it has panned out. The Dinos played 8 non-conference games, and Sask just the two. Maybe it is just a case where Sask needs to catch up to the conditioning of the other teams.

 

One note: Sask really dominated the Hørny Ønes last week. That doesn't make up for the way they were pushed around by MRU or Alberta, however. My feeling is that this series will be a TSN Turning Point for one team or the other.

I have a hunch that this will be the weekend's roadkill series. The Hørny Ønes had a dismal pre-season but then managed to squeeze two points out of the Bisons, then racked up four more against Regina. Things were looking up. Was last weekend a sign they were crashing back to Earth? The Evil Monkeys generally take no pity in these situations. 

 

Both of these teams linked to WHL scholarship stories. It is always amazing to see how many players are included, and how many do not play for their school team. Lots of players also go to schools without teams. More detail is in the links. Here's the CW summary:

 

Alberta – 39
Saskatchewan – 39
UBC – 30
Calgary – 25
Manitoba – 23
Mount Royal – 21
Regina – 21
Lethbridge – 19

This was a tale of two games. In the first, the Bisons lambasted the T-irds and built a 4-0 lead. In the second, a steady parade of Bisons to the penalty box allowed UBC dominate the shot clock while scoring two goals. Here's how they lined up:

1st 9:27 MAN Keane (3) ASST: Wasylak Jameson

1st 13:48 MAN Henry (3) ASST: Wasylak

3rd 0:58 UBC Sandhu (3) ASST: Glover Popoff (4) (PP)

3rd 17:53 MAN Stanley (1) ASST: Leipsic (5) (EN)

 

W: Lamb (40 saves, 42 shots)

L: Dea (13 saves, 17 shots)

 

The lineup switch for the Bisons was that Lucas Skrumeda, who had been playing centre, was back on the blueline. Mitchell Dyck came out, and Nico Labossiere filled the gap up front.

 

The Bisons converted on two-out-of-three powerplays. UBC's attempted comeback was also based on powerplays, just that the two goals came on seven opportunities. Once the Bisons took their 4-0 lead, 7 of the 8 remaining penalties were to Bisons. The only UBC penalty came in an offsetting penalties situation. With the goaltending of Riley Lamb and a big lead, the Bisons never seemed panicked about the situation.

 

The Bisons do not have a lot of veterans this year, but their three 5th year players are all doing a great job and are leading the team. Forward Jonah Wasylak had two assists and an imposing physical presence. Adam Henry had two goals, and with Sean Christensen formed a first line defence pair.

 

The Bisons scored some nice goals on the night. Dylan Thiessen was set up by Skrumeda on a rare PP breakaway. Geordie Keane's goal was a tic-tac-toe set-up, Henry's first came from Wasylak's steal on Dea's mishandled play behind the net, and Henry's second was a traditional blast from the blueline on a powerplay. Matthew Stanley's empty-netter was about a 195-foot curling shot.

 

The win boosts the Bisons to 4-3-0, their first time over .500 since they won their opening game. UBC is now 1-4-2.

 

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

This was also a tale of two games. In the 1st period, the Bluegars outshot the Banjocats 18-1 and built a 2-0 lead. The rest of the way, Regina was competitive in outshooting MRU 19-17 and scoring 3 goals each. The final MRU goal was an empty-netter. One note: If you were stuck in the popcorn line in the 2nd intermission you may have missed three goals. With MRU holding a 3-1 lead, Regina scored after 7 seconds of the 3rd. MRU scored 12 seconds later, and Regina scored again in 20 seconds. Riley Morris got the win (17 saves on 20 shots) and Brandon Holtby took another loss (30 saves on 34 shots).

 

The Bluegars are now 6-2-0 and the Banjocats fall to 1-7-0.

The Mutts answered the call in this tight affair. Had they lost, they would have been scrambling for a playoff berth. Taran Kozun got the win with 19 saves on 21 shots, and Matthew Greenfield stopped 24 of 27 in getting the loss.

This was bad. The Evil Monkeys are just way better than the Hørny Ønes. Shots were 68-19. There must be a serious Viagra shortage in Lethbridge, or perhaps an over-abundance of bananas in Edmontown. Brendan Burke stopped 18 of 19 for the win, and Taz Burman stopped 59 of 68 for the loss.

Both sides switched goaltenders for this rematch. It seemed to do the Hørny Ønes some good. They held a 1-0 lead after one period. In the end, though, a valiant 55 save effort from Jack Burgart was not enough as he was tagged with a loss. Matt Berlin got the win for the Evil Monkeyswith 23 saves on 24 shots. The Apes now sit in first place with a 7-1-0 record. Lethbridge falls to 3-5-0 and are lone in 6th.

This was a tight game, with few penalties, and in the end it took an empty-netter to leave the Bisons with their 4th straight series split of the season. At 4-4-0 they are now two points ahead of the T-irds, who are now 2-4-2. The Bisons gave rookie Jeremy Link his first start in net, and up fronty Tony Apetagon was in for Nico Labossiere. UBC also switched goaltenders, added a 20th player (Shaun Dosanjh), and shuffled their lines a fair bit. Here's the alignment:

W: Toth (21 saves, 22 shots)
L: Link (45 saves, 47 shots)

 

Of note, each team had just one 1st period PP, and in the 2nd there were off-setting minors. It sure kept the game flowing. The 3rd period really flew by, though.

 

Following a conference bye next week, the Bisons will have back-to-back weekends in Banjoland, first against Regina and then against Sask. Their next home action is against the Evil Monkeys on November 22nd and 23rd.

Default Nov 1: Bison Bye Week
 
This was a CW bye week, except that Sask and UBC decided to play now, and study next weekend. Apparently the Mutts have to learn a lot of gazintas.

After a slow start the Banjo Mutts are looking more like themselves. Nowhere near as good as the 25-3-0 record last year, but way better than Regina.

The Mutts did not blow away the T-irds in this one, but a sweep against a decent side is a sign that the duelling banjos are now in synch with spoons and jugs in this hillbilly symphony. UBC jumped out to a 3-2 lead after one, and that was it for scoring until the 3rd. Backup Travis Child got the win for the Mutts whilst Rylan Toth got the loss. Shots were 29 each.

After a bye week, the Herd is now off to Saskatchewan back-to-back weekends. First to meet the Banjo Cats in Regina, and next to face the Banjo Mutts in Saskatoon. Hopefully, the team will not be too grossed out by bad breath permeating from the stands and the general stench of the place.

This has the makings of a trap weekend. Regina has had a bad start and have had a bye week to address what ails them. While they were overwhelmed by Calgary and MRU, they were quite respectable against Lethbridge and UBC. Meanwhile, the Bisons have split every series so far, including an exhibition series at home against these very Kittens.

Last year, Regina beat the Bisons 3-out-of-4. However, in the three previous seasons the Bisons won 11-out-of-12. Overall, the Bisons have won 7 of the last 8 games played in Regina.

A quick look at the stats pages shows Regina's problems. Their top scorer is Conner Chaulk (1-4-5), and second is Landon Peel (0-4-4). The rest of the roster has 3 points or fewer. In goal, they once again are using all three goaltenders due to the stress of playing in the Regina kitty litter.

The Bisons are led by Adam Henry (4-5-9) and Keaton Jameson (1-8-9), part of a 5-way tie for 9th in conference scoring. In goal, Riley Lamb has taken the starting role and has been both busy and effective. His numbers are 4-2-0, .923 S%, 3.13 GAA. Jeremy Link got his first start last weekend, so it looks like he has jumped past Tyler Brown in the depth chart.

The nation's feature match-up of the weekend comes from the heart of #Wexit Country. The Bedrock Boys got it going during the pre-season and have maintained the pace ever since. This is a home-and-home series, Friday in Calgary and Saturday in Edmontown. The Evil Monkeys and Dinos had some tight battles in pre-season, and I expect these games to be hard-fought as well.

The Hørny Ønes have managed a few points here and there and are close enough to the middle of the standings to be confused with a playoff contender. I suspect they will falter a bit, and it could come in this home-and-home series. The Bluegars are a bit of surprise team thus far, moreso with others than with me. I liked their recruiting this year.

Nov 8: It Was Crazier than Moonshine

 

This was a 3-game Friday night in the CW, due to Sask and UBC having played during the bye week last week. There were two #Wexit series in Saudi Alberta, and an old GPAC rivalry revived.

This one had a few twists. The Regina broadcast crew seemed to like the game – claiming it was the best of the season thus far for the Banjocats. I have to admit that they looked better than their record.

 

The Bison line-up had some twists. LeagueStat listed 10 forwards and 8 defencemen. As usual, Ryan Carlson played forward instead of defence. But Lucas Skrumeda seemed to be (like 2 weeks ago) on defence again. Making his season debut was Carter Doerksen. Not sure if this is a sign of injuries amongst the forwards. Also, Tyler Brown was the backup goalie while Jeremy Link was scratched. Other scratches were Dyck, Barley, Labossiere, Halvorson, and Leblanc.

 

Quick Summary

 

2nd 02:27 MAN Christensen (1) ASST: Carlson

2nd 04:27 REG Hilsendager (1) ASST: Frei

2nd 10:37 MAN Thiessen (3) ASST: Pouteau, Skrumeda (PP)

3rd 07:50 MAN Wasylak (2) ASST: None

3rd 17:01 REG Duperreault (3) ASST: Frei

3rd 19:59 REG Frei (3) ASST: Ripplinger, King (PP)

4th 02:09 MAN Jameson (2) ASST: Henry, Skoleski (PP) (EN)

 

W: Lamb (25 saves, 28 shots)

L: Meger (17 saves, 21 shots)

 

The Bisons held a 15-14 edge in shots and had a 2-1 lead heading into the 3rd period. Jonah Wasylak made it 3-1 as he blocked a pass and then scored on a breakaway. From that point onwards, the Bisons went into a bit of a shell. That mostly worked. But Regina poured it on something fierce in the dying minutes. When they made it 3-2 with 3 minutes left, the Kittens went catnip crazy and wreaked havoc in the Bison zone. Adam Henry took a penalty during a net-front scramble with just 28 seconds left. Just when it looked like the Bisons were about to kill it off, the Banjo-Boys got one in with 1.3 seconds left.

 

On to overtime! There, one Kitten was caught high-sticking and before you could say “powerplay”, Keaton Jamieson scored the winning goal.

 

The Bisons are now 5-4-0 and the Cougars fall to 1-8-0. The rematch goes Saturday 3:00 p.m.

I tuned into this game after the Bison game was over. I gave up on it because the sound was no good and the picture periodically froze. It was 1-1 when I turned away. Within 5 minutes of play it was suddenly 4-2 for the Evil Monkeys. Brendan Burke got the win, stopping 16 of 19 shots. Matthew Greenfeld suffered the loss, with 19 saves on 23 shots. The Evil Monkeys are 8-1-0 and Bedrock U is 6-2-1, and have fallen into 3rd place.

The Hørny Ønes were no match for the Bluegars. In between my stints trying to watch the Bedrock/Monkeys play, I saw the Bluegars notch a couple. Wyatt Hoflin stopped 20 of 22 for the win and Taz Burman stopped 34 of 40 for the loss. The win vaults MRU into 2nd place with a 7-2-0 record, and keeps the Hørny Ønes in 7th (one point behind UBC) at 3-6-0.

This was a reasonably entertaining game. The Bison split streak stays intact for 5 weeks now. The only line-up switch from Friday was Halvorson for Apetagon.

1st 18:44    REG    Barnstable (2) ASST: Schacher (SH)    
2nd 14:29 REG    Odelein (2) ASST: Kreklewich
2nd 15:33 MAN Henry (5) ASST: Skoleski Tripp (PP)
3rd 18:11 MAN Tripp (2) ASST: Thiessen Dalke

 

Shootout
REG Duperreault Goal
MAN Leipsic No Goal
REG Schacher Goal

W:Holtby (29 saves, 31 shots)
L: Lamb (28 saves, 30 shots)

 

The Bisons are now 5-4-1, one point behind 4th place Saskatchewan. Regina is 2-7-1, just 3 points behind 6th place Lethbridge and a playoff berth. The Bisons are off to Saskatown to face the Mutts next weekend, and Regina is off to Edmontown to face the Apes.

The Apes registered an emphatic win here. Suddenly, the Dinos' hopes for 1st place now seem a page right out of history. Grayson Pawlenchuk scored twice for the Evil Monkeys and Matt Berlin stopped 18 of 19 for the win. Matthew Greenfield stopped 15 of 20 shots for the loss before being yanked in the 2nd period. Brodan Salmond stopped 15 of 16 in a mop-up effort. I switched away from this game on CanadaWest.tv to see MRU v Lethbridge.

The Hørny Ønes needed this one. It vaults them into 6th place, ahead of UBC. Michael Clark led the way with 2 goals. Jack Burgart stopped 42 of 45 for the win, and Riley Morris stopped 34 of 37 for the OTL. The Bluegars are now in 2nd place, two points up on Bedrock U.

The schedule-maker played a cruel trick on the Bisons this year, scheduling their Saskatchewan road-trips on back-to-back weekends. Last weekend they went south to Regina and this weekend it's up north to Saskatown. The Bisons have barely recovered from the outhouse smell which permeates the province.

The places have similarities, such as the shoeless, gap-toothed, unwashed, moonshine drinking hillbillies who abound in both locations. The differences? South is feline, north is canine. South is mediocre, north is a perennial contender.

 

In fact, the Banjo Mutts have been the Herd's nemesis in recent years. Over the last four years the Bison record is 3-12-1, and only 1-7-0 in Banjoland.

The Mutts lost their first three games, which was concerning since they finished first at 25-3-0 a year ago. However, they are now on a 5-0-2 roll. Meanwhile, the Bisons have split all five series thus far. All told, Sask sits in 4th place, one point ahead of the Bisons. The teams may well be on a collision course for a first round playoff match-up.

 

The team stats are fairly comparable. Sask has 35 goals, the Bisons have 32. Sask has given up 31 goals, the Bisons 33.

 

For “players to watch” on the Bisons, I suggest captain, defenceman, and leading scorer Adam Henry (5-6-11, tied for 9th in teh CW) and forward Keaton Jameson (2-8-10, 12th in the CW). Also, the three 5th year players have all been top-notch. Henry (+9) is paired with Sean Christensen (+10) on defence. Up front, 6' 4” Jonah Wasylak has improved his skill level over his five years to the point where he at times can dominate opponents.

 

Sask is led by 4th year forward Carson Stadnyk (6-3-9, in a 5-way tie for 13th in the conference) and a quartet of players with 8 points, in a 12-way tie for 18th in the CW (Carter Folk, Layne Young, Levi Cable, Collin Shirley).

 

Of course, good goaltending is always mandatory to be competitive. The Bisons have three first year goaltenders and Riley Lamb has won the battle to be #1. His numbers are top-notch: 5-2-1, .921 S%, 2.90 GAA. Jeremy Link and Tyler Brown have each had just one start.

 

Meanwhile, neither of Sask's goaltenders have equalled Lamb so far. Veteran Taran Kozun is 4-2-2, .891 S%, 2.86 GAA and second year Travis Child is 1-1-0, .897 S%, 3.55 GAA. Both have done better.

 

This series could end up being one of significance. If the Bisons split or sweep, they will likely be comfortably in a playoff position for a long time, and would have realistic hopes of even hosting a quarter-final series.

Welcome to the mismatch of the week! The Banjo Cats would love to have just one recruiting class to compare to the Evil Monkeys' average one. The Kittens have not made the playoffs since 2008. Since MRU joined the league, the Kittens have been 7th or 8th every year. Before that, they had a stretch of 6th or 7th place seasons. Meanwhile, the Apes are U-Cup or bust. The last time they did not qualify for the U-Cup final tournament was 2007. The time before that was 1998.

 

Good luck, Puddy Tats!

If you like watching teams in blue and yellow uniforms, this is the series for you. Also, this is the battle for the 6th and final playoff berth. The Hørny Ønes have 8 points, one ahead of the T-irds. Similar to the Bison series, this has the potential to define the remainder of the season for both teams. If one side could sweep, they could cast their gaze upon bigger and better things, like 5th place. Being the late game Friday, I'll likely see a good portion of that game.

This Thursday/Friday home-and-home crosstown derby should be top-notch. I have been watching on CanadaWest.tv while drafting this post. It is 4-4 mid-way through the 3rd period.

 

Bedrock U looked like world-beaters through the pre-season and early season. Then the Evil Monkeys made them crash to Earth last weekend. Meanwhile, the Bluegars keep trucking along. This series has overtime written all over it. Through 10 games, MRU has 52 goals and the Dinos have 43. Expect lots of offence.

The Bisons never seemed to find their mojo in this one. However, some good goaltending by backup Tyler Brown kept them in it, down only 2-1 in the 3rd period. A dubious “throwing your stick” call on Jonah Wasylak led to the PP insurance goal which salted this one away. (He passed his stick to a teammate). Although Brown had a good performance, I would expect #1 Riley Lamb for Saturday night's rematch.

 

Quick Summary

1st 10:46 SSK Stadnyk (7) ASST: McVeigh Dmytriw (PP)

1st 19:35 SSK Neuls (2) ASST: Dmytriw (SH)

3rd 04:18 MAN Skoleski (3) ASST: Henry

3rd 10:10 SSK Cable (3) ASST: Young Ballhorn (PP)

3rd 17:47 SSK Bauml (3) ASST: Young Cable (EN)

 

W: Kozun (19 saves, 20 shots)

L: Brown (47 saves, 50 shots)

 

Of note, Sask was 2-for-8 on the powerplay, and the Bisons were 0-for-5. Once again, a key goal against was short-handed. Also, Carter Doerksen had 5-and-a-game for a head hit. I don't believe he'll suit up on Saturday.

 

Saturday's rematch starts at 7:00 CST and is on CanadaWest.tv.

This split was to be expected. The fact that Bedrock U got 3 points to the Bluegars' 2 means that they close to within 1 point of 2nd place.

 

Thursday night was a wild-west shoot-out style of game. Wyatt Hoflin got the W with 33 saves on 37 shots, and Brodam Salmond got the loss in relief, with 15 stops on 19 shots. Starter Matthew Greenfield started and allowed 1 goal on 5 shots in the 1st period.

 

On Friday night the scene shifted to Bedrock's Quarry, and the Dinos built a 4-0 lead before hanging on to a nail-biting victory. Chris Gerrie scored his 5th and 6th goals of the scene to make it interesting. Greenfield did not dress for the Dinos, so I suspect he'll miss some time with an injury. Salmond got the start and stopped 22 of 25 for the win. Hoflin started again for the Bluegars but after 4 goals on 16 shots, he was yanked in favour of Riley Morris, who made 17 saves to give MRU a chance.

 

I suspect that these two teams will be battling with the Mutts for 2nd place and that precious bye to the semi-finals.

This was the 50th consecutive win for the Evil Monkeys over the Banjo Cats. This includes playoffs and non-conference/exhibition games. But give the Kittens some credit. The deciding goal was an empty-netter and they looked pretty decent. I've seen the Apes have easier games at the University Cup. Grayson Pawlenchuk led the Monkeys with 2 goals and 2 assists. Brendan Burke stopped 21 of 23 shots for the win, and Brandon Holtby stopped 42 of 45 in a tough luck loss. The MKOnkeys are now in 1st place, 3 points ahead of 2nd, and Regina is in last, 3 points out of 7th.

Don't be deceived by the scoreline in this one. The T-irds had a nice comfortable win in progress, up 3-0 mid-way through the 3rd period. But then the Hørny Ønes fell apart. Tyler Sandhu scored his 4th, 5th, and 6th goals to lead the T-irds. Rylan Toth stopped 23 of 24 shots for the win. Jack Burgart stopped 22 of 29 for the loss. UBC's powerplay was an amazing 4-for-6 on the night. This result vaults UBC into 6th place, one point up on Lethbridge and 2 points behind Manitoba.

icon1.pngNov 16: Bisons Swept in Saskatown

 

So it looks like the future is clear in the CW. There will be a battle between MRU, Calgary, and Sask to see which one will get a playoff bye and host a semi-final, and which two will settle for hosting a quarter-final.

 

Otherwise, Regina and Lethbridge will be out of the playoffs, Manitoba and UBC will be the away teams in the quarter-finals, and Alberta will get the first place bye and hosting rights throughout the playoffs.

The difference between the teams this weekend comes down to two factors:

1. empty net goals;

2. short-handed goals.

 

#1 is a by-product of #2. Without two shorthanded goals here, there would have been no need to pull the goalie and give up an empty-netter.

 

In this game the Bisons were shorthanded. Carter Doerksen was automatically suspended for incurring a major penalty on Friday. Josh Tripp, after starting the season injured, was also re-injured on Friday. Fortunately, with Lucas Skrumeda playing forward (mostly) this year, all they had to do was move him back to the blueline to have 6 defencemen.

 

Riley Lamb was back in goal, with Jeremy Link backing up.

After a credible performance on Friday, the Kittens were badly thrashed in this one. The frustrated banjo-lovers had enough by the 2nd period and good-old western fisticuffs followed. Michael Eskra (Regina) and Dawson Davidson (Alberta) had fighting majors and the accompanying ejection. The Kittens switched goaltenders (Holtby must have been tired after Friday's game) and Dawson Macauley (stopped 22 of 27) split duties with Curtis Meger (stopped 23 of 26). Matt Berlin had a 19 save shutout for the Primates.

The Hørny Ønes got off to a better-than-expected start, after a weak pre-season. That bubble looks to have burst. The T-irds were dominant in this one. Patrick Dea got the win with a 14 save shutout. He could have been studying for a majority of the game, or enjoying some popcorn. Taz Burman took the loss, with 36 saves on 41 shots.
