The Bisons lost a hard-fought game in Calgary. They were leading or tied all night until the Bluegars’ late winner. Here were the scorers:

1st 10:19 - Man Quintin Lisoway (6)
2nd 04:52 - Man Remi Laurencelle (4)
2nd 07:20 - MRU Tanner Olstad (6)
2nd 07:32 - MRU Jamal Watson (6)
2nd 08:41 - Man Brad Bowles (2)
3rd 06:24 - MRU Jesse Lees (9)
3rd 17:39 - MRU Jesse Lees (10)

The Bisons took control of the game in the 1st period, but MRU controlled the 2nd. Jesse Lees is on a roll for MRU, having a four-goal game already this semester.

Cam Lanigan got the win in the MRU goal, and Byron Spriggs took the loss. MRU held a 35-29 edge in shots on goal.

The Bisons dressed just 19 players. Dasan Sidora returned to the backup goaltender role, and Geordie Keane suited up for just the 3rd time in the regular season. With only 4 defencemen, Brett Stovin once again played on the blueline. The return of Remi Laurencelle (now has 4 goals in 7 games) helps compensate for the loss of Stovin up front.

The win draws MRU within just one point of the Bisons in the race for 3rd place.

The rematch goes at 4:00 CST on Saturday and is available on CanadaWest.tv.

Bedrock U needs a big winning streak to salvage a playoff berth, and a decisive loss in Saskatown was not on their agenda. There was a lot of offence (42-38 shots in favour of the Mutts). Jordon Cooke got the win, and Jordan Papirny the loss. For the Dinos, that 8 point gap between them and the Top Five makes it pretty clear that their sites have to be set on Lethbridge (a 3 point gap).

My speculation proved correct. After losing 3-of-4, the Evil Monkeys came out to throttle the Kittens. The final shots were 50-18 in favour of Saudi Alberta, 19-3 in the 3rd! Jamie Crooks and Luke Philp each scored twice for Alberta and Brendan Burke got the win. Dawson MacAuley took the loss. Pitty the Kitties.

I saw a good portion of this late game on the docket after the Bisons were done. It was about as even as possible (shots were 27-27) and the sell-out crowd of about 5,500 gave exceptional vocal support to the T-irds. Tyler Sandhu’s late game winner came on a bit of a lucky bounce. Meaning that the dark cloud which hovers over the Horned Ones continues to exist. Lethbridge remains clinging to 6th place, 3 points ahead of Calgary and 5 points behind UBC and MRU. A win in the rematch is badly needed. Matt Hewitt got the win, and Garret Hughson got the loss.

Jan 20: Herd Gets the Split

Stories: [rp @UofM]

The Herd exits Stampede City with a split of a close-fought series, which in the end seems appropriate. This result brought to an end the Bluegars' 5-game winning streak, and the Bisons' 3-game losing streak. The result allows the Bisons to hold onto 3rd place and strengthens the likelihood that they will host a quarter-final series the weekend of February 16-18.

The story of the game was Byron Spriggs' 36 save shutout performance, and Michael St. Croix's 8th goal of the season. Cam Lanigan took a hard loss for MRU, stopping 27 shots in his own right.

The Bisons iced the same line-up as on Friday night, meaning they were one man short and Brett Stovin was on the blueline.

The Bisons are at home for the next two weekends, facing Regina on January 26-27 and Lethbridge on February 2-3, before closing the regular season against the Bedrock Dinos on February 9-10.

Jordon Cooke recorded his 10th CW shutout by making 40 saves to pace the Mutts to a sweep of the Dinos. Matthew Greenfield stopped 24 of 26 shots at his end in taking the loss. The CW's leading scorer, Josh Roach, kept atop the scoring race with another goal. This is a tough loss for Bedrock U. After their points forfeiture they experienced a disappointing 3-point split with UBC, a satisfactory split with Alberta, and now this. Their realistic target for a playoff berth is Lethbridge, who they trail by 4 points.

The Evil Monkeys punished rookie goaltender Brandon Holtby with 53 shots in his CW debut performance. According to their game story, that's 35 straight wins over Regina. Stephane Legault scored twice for the Monkeys. Zach Sawchenko stopped 18 shots for the win. It appears that the Kittens' rookie goaltender Michael Herringer is suffering from shell shock. He was the starter coming out of camp and was looking strong. But he did not dress in this series and his numbers have hit the skids (3-10-0, .854 S%, 5.19 GAA). Regina was also missing another rookie, Zak Zborosky, who also happens to be their leading scorer (9-13-22 in 18 games). Pitty the Kitties.

The T-irds have made the most of the four-point freebie they got from forfeitures and now seem a cinch for a playoff berth. There was seemingly a ton of offence in thuis matinee encounter. The final shots were 47-42 in favour of the Hørny Ønes. Three times, Lethbridge took the lead, and three times UBC tied it up, the last time with an empty net in the last minute. Matt Revel had two goals for UBC and Nick Buonassisi notched the winner. Matt Hewitt stopped 44 of 47 for the win, and Garret Hughson stopped 38 of 42 in the loss.

Weel #12 - Jan 21/18

THE OFFICIAL HOLLYWOOD TOP 35 #12

There were a couple of category shifts this time. In the OUA West, Western Ontario trades places with Windsor (in C+ and C categories) and in the AUS, St. Mary's finally drops from A to B.

This was also the end of inter-conference play, at least until the quarter-finals of the U-Cup.

∞ In the official standings, Calgary were penalized 2 wins against UBC, a win and OTL against Lethbridge, and an OTL against Alberta for use of an ineligible player. And UQTR was penalized 2 wins against Nipissing, Lakehead, Laurentian, a win and OTL against Queen's, two OTLs against RMC, and a win over Carleton.


Image

With some shifting happening, I publish again the supplementary charts. First, here are the “AOA” charts, with last week's ranking indicated:

Image
Image

The “average-of-averages” pretty much summarizes things. One exception is that Calgary leads MRU in the CW rankings by any other measure, but would now fall beneath them in the “AOA” measure. For now, Ryerson and Calgary will stay in B and the group of C+ teams in blue will also stay put. Fortunate that Calgary and MRU face one another in the coming week.

It might just be time to resign ourselves to the fact that no OUA West team is consistent enough to be a B team. For now, Ryerson clings to B just ahead of Calgary.

SMU was hanging onto the A level for a while now. But their numbers clearly fit better with the B level. This gives the AUS a more “normal” skew and reverberates throughout the AUS rankings. They still don't have a C+ team, and I doubt that will change unless UPEI catches fire.

With RMC losing to Army in their annual game, the inter-conference play is now over for another year. Here is the final chart:

And here is the current skew:

The home stretch is upon us. Each team has just a 6-pack of games left. Neither side in this series is in an uncommon position. The Bisons are trying to hang on to third place, and the Kittens are a distant last.

Playoffs are no longer even a pipe dream in the Land of Banjos (southern campus). I had thought they were looking like an improved side this year. And for a time they were. After their fall series against the Bisons, they had splits with Lethbridge and Calgary and two one-goal losses to Saskatchewan to end the first semester. It seemed they were positioned to play spoiler in the second semester. However, they have lost all 6 games so far and in each series had one close game and one blow-out. So they enter the weekend on an 8-game losing streak.

The Kittens generated some good vibes with a solid recruiting class. They recruited a leading scorer, Zak Zborosky (9-13-22), and a starting goaltender, Michael Herringer (3-10-0, 5.19 GAA, .854 S%). But Zborosky has missed the last 3 games with injury (not sure if he's playing this weekend) and Herringer's numbers have earned him a spot either on the bench or in the stands.

There are not a load of capable veterans on the Kittens' roster. Notable exceptions are 5th years Cody Fowlie (7-11-18) and Ian McNulty (5-11-16), each a point away from their career highs. Brody Luhning (1-14-15) is tied for 6th leading scoring defenceman in the CW.

What makes me wonder about the Bisons right now is the situation on defence. Will Brett Stovin continue to be one of five defenceman? Or will one or more of Channing Brseciani, Austin Douglas, or Victor Sharonov suit up? Up front, they have had an abundance of players. However, Kamerin Nault and Nick Zajac both missed last weekend. Shawn Bowles hasn't played since early November and Jonah Wasylak hasn't played since pre-season. Add it up, and just 19 players dressed against MRU.

As always, both games are on Canadawest.tv (if you pay) and on free radio, at UMFM 101.5 on your FM dial on Friday, or Saturday on the “second stream” on-line.

This series will go on a Thursday-Friday schedule because it is the annual Crowchild Classic game, at the Saddledome. They always draw a massive crowd for this game, and this year's game is sold out. The CW standings are in a state of turmoil due to the forfeitures by Bedrock U. Some of the league's standings links have the new results, and some do not. If not for the forfeitures, these teams would be tied for 4th and 5th places, 3 points back of the Bisons. Instead, though not involved in the forfeitures, the Bluegars fall behind UBC into 5th place and Bedrock U falls to 7th, 4 points out of a playoff spot. Rivalry games like these can be unpredictable. But in all honesty, this series would be a toss-up under any circumstances. The Dinos were widely held out as a potential contender entering the season, due to a powerful recruiting class, but they may need to “run the table” to avoid missing the playoffs.

The Hørny Ønes likely have a lot of people wishing them well in their quest to make the playoffs. They haven't been in the post-season since 2009. After that they had 3 seasons of placing either 5th or 6th, but the CW cut the playoff field from 6 to 4 teams in those seasons. Then came 3 seasons of dead last. The last two seasons were narrow misses, so they are due. To add sadness to this tale, they have not won a playoff series since they won the U-Cup in 1994. Meanwhile, the Evil Monkeys have been a nation-wide power. So if you're rooting for the Apes in this one you are either (a) a monkey; (b) a fan of the Bedrock Dinos; or (c) a jerk.

The T-irds grabbed a break by having two severe losses against the Dinos turned into victories. But they have also responded with sound performances in the 2nd semester, going 5-1-0. That will not impress the Banjo Mutts. They, too, are 5-1-0 in the 2nd semester. And they finished the 1st semester with 5 straight wins. So while the T-irds have capitalized on their good fortune, they close the season with three opponents against whom they were winless in the 1st semester (MRU and Alberta are next).

The CW weekend got off to an early start as the Bedrock Dinos played the Mount Royal Bluegars in the annual Crowchild Classic before a large crowd of boisterous fans at the Saddledome. It was a wild and crazy affair. Tied 2-2 after two periods, neither goalie could stop anything in the 3rd period. The Dinos scored on 3 of 8 shots on Cam Lanigan, and the Bluegars scored 3 goals on 7 shots on Matthew Greenfield. The game also had wild swings in scoring. The Dinos led 2-0, then fell behind 3-2. They regained a 4-3 lead, then the Bluegars regained a 5-4 lead. Despite the onslaught of goals, Jamie King of MRU was the only one to score twice. It seems that overtime is becoming a regular feature of these games. The rematch goes Friday night at Bedrock.

What a crazy game this was. The game had a raucous crowd of needy youth, mostly disabled and lots in wheelchairs. It was nice to see these kids getting a night out. But the teams often forgot to play as their coaches wanted, which was entertaining and frustrating all at once.

The best news was that three injured players were back in the lineup (Channing Bresciani, Nick Zajac, and Kamerin Nault), and goaltender Justin Paulic hit the ice for the first time. Here's how the teams lined up:

22 Sparrow – 16 McPhee – 15 Hansen – 29 Predinchuk

Scratches
2 Bear – 10 Coleshaw – 19 Marr
23 Magnus – 30 Holtby – 32 Zborosky

So with Bresciani returning, captain Brett Stovin returned to the forward lines as the team stuck with the five defencemen rotation they have used most of the season, along with a 4th line which rotates 4 players. Regina had 8 players listed as defencemen in their lineup, 7 of whom played there. That left 11 forwards, and they largely interchanged. I listed them in the three groupings in which they typically played. And here's who scored:

1st 03:00 – Reg Ben Duperreault (4)
1st 07:07 – Man Blake Heinrich (3)
1st 11:12 – Man Michael St. Croix (9)
1st 11:47 – Man Liam Bilton (5)
1st 13:28 – Man Liam Bilton (6) (SH)
2nd 05:23 – Reg Landon Peel (2)
2nd 10:15 – Man Quintin Lisoway (8)
2nd 12:29 – Man Brad Bowles (2) (PP)
2nd 13:18 – Man Brett Brooks (6)
2nd 15:52 – Reg Jordan Burns (2)
3rd 06:17 – Reg Zach McPhee (5)
3rd 14:22 – Reg Landon Peel (3)
3rd 18:19 – Man Quintin Lisoway (9) (PP)
3rd 18:37 – Reg Stephen Langford (2)

Byron Spriggs got the win with 16 saves on 19 shots, and Paulic's relief appearance saw him stop 4 of 7 shots. Dawson MacAuley took the loss with 27 stops on 35 shots. Now those save percentages are not impressive. However, the Bison forwards pushed aside the Kittens' defence at will and, once they had amassed the lead, they played out of position and were caught going forward before they had accomplished a clearance of their zone.

The most positive aspect of the game was that 7 of the 8 goals came from the 3rd and 4th lines. Since they were ahead by 3 goals most of the game, they were able to dole out generous ice time to everybody.

Saturday's rematch goes at 1:00 p.m.

The Hørny Ønes came up with a stinker here, and it looks like they are headed to another late season slide from the playoffs. Too bad. Jamie Crooks (with his 5th and 16th) and Steven Owre (with his 11th and 12th) led the Evil Monkeys with their combined 4 goals. Brendan Burke stopped 27 of 28 shots for the win, and Garret Hughson stopped 29 of 34 in 35 minutes to suffer defeat. Ty Edmonds came on in relief to stop 9 of 12.

In the Town of Bedrock, everybody dressed in red is shouting Yabba Dabba Doo! They got a must-needed sweep to keep their playoff hopes alive. The teams each had two powerplay goals when Cain Franson scored the only even-strength goal of the night to get the win. That's two game-winners in two days for him. An empty-netter put the game away. Jordan Papirny stopped 25 of 27 shots for the win. After riding veteran Cam Lanigan, the Bluegars never dressed him. Wyatt Hoflin stopped 18 of 21 shots to take the loss, and former starter Colin Cooper was the backup.

How do you outshoot a team 41-18 and lose 5-1? Well, the Banjo Mutts found a way to do just that Friday night in British California. Matt Hewitt stopped 40 of 41 for the win, and Jordon Cooke had an off night with 13 stops on 17 shots. Michael Stenerson had his 10th and 11th goals of the season, the latter into an empty net, to lead the way for the T-irds. Catching a break with a pair of forfeited losses by the Dinos has seemingly sparked the T-irds.

Jan 27: Convincing Sweep For the Bisons

Tough weekend for the Kittens. A Herd of stampeding Bison is too much for cute little kitties to handle. Bubbles would be appalled. There was some feistiness late in the game, which was controlled by the referees.

The Bison alignment for the first and second periods was identical to Friday's. However, Dasan Sydora dressed as backup goaltender in place of Justin Paulic. In the 3rd period, Brett Stovin was shifted from forward to defence and the team rolled four lines and three defence pairs.

For Regina, Dawson MacAuley had started in goal on Friday but did not suit up on Saturday. Michael Herringer played the first two periods and Brandon Holtby played the 3rd period. Here's how the Bisons lined up in the 3rd period:

Goal
35 Spriggs (34 Sydora)

Defence
16 Heinrich – 25 Skrumeda
2 Henry – 3 Christensen
4 Bresciani – 28 Stovin

Forwards
27 Franko – 14 Nault – 18 St. Croix
12 Zajac – 13 Laurencelle – 24 Augert
23 Schreyer – 21 Brooks – 8 Bilton
17 Callis – 22 B Bowles – 26 Lisoway

Scratches
1 Paulic - 9 Douglas – 11 Sharonov
15 S Bowles - 19 Spencer – 20 Keane
29 Wasylak

And here's who scored:

1st 11:04 – Man Remi Laurencelle (5)
1st 12:32 – Man Joel Schreyer (2)
2nd 03:39 – Reg Jordan Burns (3)
2nd 05:55 – Man Kamerin Nault (11)
2nd 10:27 – Man Quintin Lisoway (10)
2nd 18:29 – Man Warren Callis (3)
3rd 02:06 – Man Justin Augert (4) (PP)
3rd 19:19 – Man Lucas Skrumeda (2) (PP)

Byron Spriggs stopped 26 of 27 shots for the win. Herringer stopped 21 of 26 shots to take the loss, and Holtby stopped 13 of 15 shots in relief. Seven different Bisons scored, and the 1st line had one goal, and the rest had two goals each.

Next weekend the Bisons play their final home games of the regular season against Lethbridge. Friday's game starts at 7:00 p.m. and Saturday's rematch goes at 1:00 p.m.

Before the Bisons get too pumped by their 15 goal weekend, the Evil Monkeys beat that with 17 goals of their own. This has to be devastating for the Hørny Ønes, who are now tied for 6th place and looking like they will be pipped at the wire for the 3rd consecutive season. The Monkeys continued rotating goalies, as Zach Sawchenko got the win with 29 saves on 31 shots. Meanwhile, Lethbridge went to backup goaltender Ty Edmonds, who stopped 33 of 42 shots to taste defeat. Stephane Legault scored twice for the winners, and was the only one to do so.

After the T-irds caught a lucky break with two bonus wins over Bedrock U, they evidently took that seriously. They are now on a 6-game winning streak and are 7-1 in the 2nd semester. Rylan Toth got a 27 save win, and Jordon Cooke got a 27 save loss.

Here's what we know:

1. Alberta is guaranteed a first round bye.
2. Saskatchewan needs another win or OTL to be guaranteed a first round bye.
3. Manitoba and UBC can finish no worse than 5th.
4. Manitoba needs one more win or MRU loss to be a guaranteed at least hosting a quarter-final.
5. UBC needs one more win over MRU to be a guaranteed at least hosting a quarter-final.
6. Lethbridge and Calgary could still finish ahead of MRU.
7. Lethbridge holds the tie-breaker over Calgary.

Week #13 - Jan 28/18

Post by Hollywood2 » Mon Jan 29, 2018 7:03 pm

THE OFFICIAL HOLLYWOOD TOP 35 #13
to Jan 28/18
No teams changed ranking levels this week, but there is a traffic jam between B and C+ which could easily cause some shifting in the final 2 weekends of the regular season. This week's table adds a column, the “AOA”.

THE SCORES:

Jan 24 Acadia 1 St. F.X. 4
Jan 24 New Brunswick 2 U.P.E.I. 3
Jan 24 Saint Mary's 2 Dalhousie 4
Jan 24 Ottawa 3 U.Q.T.R. 6

Jan 25 Laurier 2 W. Ontario 6
Jan 25 Ryerson 4 Brock 3 (ot)
Jan 26 Alberta 8 Lethbridge 1
Jan 26 Mount Royal 2 Calgary 4
Jan 26 Regina 6 Manitoba 8
Jan 26 Saskatchewan 1 U.B.C. 5

Jan 26 St. F.X. 3 Saint Mary's 2 (ot)
Jan 26 Concordia 2 Carleton 4
Jan 26 Guelph 5 Toronto 4
Jan 26 R.M.C. 3 Laurentian 4 (ot)
Jan 26 U.O.I.T. 2 Nipissing 3
Jan 26 Waterloo 4 Windsor 7
Jan 26 York 5 Lakehead 4 (ot)
Jan 27 Alberta 9 Lethbridge 2
Jan 27 Regina 1 Manitoba 7
Jan 27 Saskatchewan 1 U.B.C. 3
Jan 27 Acadia 2 Dalhousie 6
Jan 27 Moncton 4 New Brunswick 7
Jan 27 Brock 3 W. Ontario 2 (ot)
Jan 27 Carleton 1 McGill 6
Jan 27 Concordia 3 U.O.I.T. 5
Jan 27 Guelph 5 Laurier 3
Jan 27 Queen's 3 Laurentian 1
Jan 27 R.M.C. 4 Nipissing 3
Jan 27 Ryerson 3 Toronto 4 (ot)
Jan 27 U.Q.T.R. 2 Ottawa 5
Jan 27 Waterloo 2 Windsor 1 (so)
Jan 27 York 4 Lakehead 0

THE TABLE:

Image
Image
* indicates total includes a tie game
Conf. indicates overall conference record
Con-x indicates exhibition record within conference
CIS-x indicates exhibition record within CIS but outside conference
CIS indicates regular season and exhibition record against CIS teams
Other indicates record against non-CIS teams
Total indicates record against all teams
∞ In the official standings, Calgary were penalized 2 wins against UBC, a win and OTL against Lethbridge, and an OTL against Alberta for use of an ineligible player. And UQTR was penalized 2 wins against Nipissing, Lakehead, Laurentian, a win and OTL against Queen's, two OTLs against RMC, and a win over Carleton.


Image

So, about that traffic jam between B and C+. Calgary ranks ahead of MRU and UBC by comparative records within the CW. By the AOA, they also rank behind Carleton, Queen's, and Ryerson. Meanwhile, MRU and UBC rank ahead of York. So that's how the whole lot get ranked. Now, if one domino should fall those teams could all shift about and there could be loads of shifting between B and C+.

At the other end, the only team remaining at C- is Moncton. Strange to see Moncton down so low.

The Bisons are on a roll and have assured themselves of a playoff berth. The Hørny Ønes sit tied for 6th with the Dinos. So will Lethbridge shed the shame of their whippings against Alberta last weekend? It is unique that Lethbridge and Calgary both face the same opponents (Manitoba and Regina) in their two closing series. Lethbridge holds the tiebreaker, so all they need to do is match Calgary.

The 'Horns have been a tough opponent for the Bisons. They swept the last series, albeit both games went into overtime. In the last 5 years, the Bisons are 10-6-2 in head-to-head matchups (Lethbridge is 8-10-0).

For players to watch, the 'Horns are led by Mitchell Maxwell (8-17-25). In goal, Garret Hughson solidified the #1 slot with some good performances, but his numbers have come back to Earth (7-9-0, 3.39 GAA, .908 S%).

This week, it was announced that Lethbridge will host the 2019 University Cup. It would be excellent preparation if they could qualify for the playoffs before they play in that event. 2019 could be the 10th anniversary of their last playoff series and the 25th anniversary of their last playoff series victory!

In any event, I suspect that the Bisons will need to play tougher than they did against Regina. As always, both games are on Canadawest.tv (if you pay) and on free radio, at UMFM 101.5 on your FM dial (or on-line) on Friday, or Saturday on the “second stream” on-line.

The Banjo Cats end their home schedule with this series against Bedrock U. Could they finally end their abysmal losing streak? When these teams met in November, each side claimed a 3-2 win. But that was in the 1st semester, when Regina was seemingly a solid hockey team. They are 0-8-0 in the 2nd semester, and on a 10-game losing streak overall. If not for the 8 points they forfeited, the Dinos would be sitting comfortably in 4th place, just 3 points behind Manitoba. Instead they are tied with Lethbridge, realistically 1/2 point behind, for the 6th and final playoff spot. I suspect that, on one night at least, we will see some significant play from the Kittens so they can avoid disgrace at home.

These two teams are assured of berths in the conference semi-finals. However, Sask's sweep at the hands of UBC last week has them in a difficult spot. It seemed that this was the great showdown for 1st place. Now Sask needs a 4-0 sweep to make it interesting. Alberta does a great job with their webcast so if you're not a subscriber to CanadaWest.tv, it might be worth it to purchase the one game.

CW: [Alumni Spotlight: WHL, CW experience paying off for Fiddler overseas] : [rp @MRU]
UBC: [Team Site]

This could be the closest matchup of the weekend anywhere. However, due to UBC's free 4 points against Bedrock U from forfeitures, they lead MRU by 5 points. It is likely that only one of these teams will be hosting a quarter-final series this year. In fact, the teams appear to be on a collision course to meet one another in the quarter-final round.

Scratches

The Bison line-up was identical to the one they used last Friday. And here's who scored:

1st 03:46 – Man Quintin Lisoway (11)
1st 12:19 – Leth Ryon Moser (5)
1st 14:18 – Leth Brooks Maxwell (2)
2nd 06:45 – Leth Artsiom Kalashnikov (1)
2nd 16:28 – Man Remi Laurencelle (6)
2nd 17:18 – Man Kamerin Nault (12)
2nd 18:18 – Man Justin Augert (5)
3rd 01:20 – Man Justin Augert (6) (PP)
3rd 06:15 – Leth Dallas Valentine (3) (PP)

Lisoway got the Bisons off to a quick start and, one can safely say, the Bisons seemed to be having their way with the Hørny Ønes. But by mid-period things hjad turned around. When #47 Artsiom Kalashnikov (that's right: “AK47”!) gunned down his first goal of the season, it was looking like Lethbridge was on their way to a big win. Instead, the final 5 minutes of the 2nd period showed that the Bisons can score in bunches. In less than 2 minutes, they scored three goals at even strength. When you combine that with a powerplay goal on a penalty which straddled the 2nd and 3rd periods, this game experienced a major turnaround in a relatively short time. After that outburst, the Bisons attempted to go into a shell, and took a string of penalties. Whilst 2-men short, they gave up the final goal of the night. In the end, Lethbridge did not do too much to threaten to force overtime.

Lisoway's 11th goal of the season is a pretty fair performance. What is spectacular is his 2nd semester where he now has 8 goals in 9 games.

If you check the summaries, Augert did not get the penalties for a hit from behind nor the 5-minute major. He served those whilst Nick Zajac and Blake Heinrich served misconducts.

Byron Spriggs got yet another win for the Bisons (with 32 saves), and Garret Hughson suffered defeat in net for the 'Horns (with 26 saves).

The Bisons are now assured of a home playoff series, and in fact still have a faint hope for 2nd place and a first round bye.

Saturday's rematch goes at 1:00 p.m., and it will be senior's night for the Herd and their 4 pending grads: Justin Augert, Warren Callis, Joel Schreyer, and Channing Bresciani.

The Dinos need a sweep in Regina and took an emphatic step in that regard on Friday night. This one was never close. It was 4-0 after the 1st period, and shots were 17-4 in favour of the Dinos. It looks like the Kittens are going extinct. Rookie Brandon Holtby started in goal for Regina but was puilled after giving up 4 goals on 17 shots. Michael Herringer finished with 28 saves on 31 shots. Meanwhile, Jordan Papirny made 20 saves for the shutout as Bedrock U continued to rotate goaltenders. Chris Rauckman had two goals.

This was a decisive win for the Evil Monkeys and it basically ends the race for 1st place. After Manitoba swept the Monkeys, the Banjo Mutts made the race interesting. Those two losses to UBC killed their realistic hopes. Brendan Burke got the win for the Monkeys, and Jordon Cooke took the loss. The shots were 38-25 in favour of Alberta.

The T-irds have become the CW's unlikely hiot team. Until they were awarded a 4-point bonus in the Calgary forfeiture fiasco, they seemed to be a team in significant trouble of missing the playoffs. This win means they (and Manitoba) are assured of 3rd or 4th in the final standings. Matt Hewitt got the win and Cam Lanigan took the loss. However, MRU did outshoot UBC 24-19 on the night.

This preview of the 2019 University Cup gold medal game (!) did not go well for the Hørny Ønes and, when combined with the out-of-town scoreboard, all but eliminated them from this year's playoff picture. First, the line-ups:

MANITOBA

Goal
35 Spriggs (34 Sydora)

Defence
2 Henry – 25 Skrumeda
4 Bresciani - 3 Christensen
28 Stovin

Forwards
27 Franko – 14 Nault – 18 St. Croix
12 Zajac – 13 Laurencelle – 24 Augert
8 Bilton – 21 Brooks – 19 Spencer - 23 Schreyer
26 Lisoway – 22 B Bowles – 17 Callis

Scratches
1 Paulic - 9 Douglas – 11 Sharonov
15 S Bowles – 16 Heinrich - 20 Keane
29 Wasylak

LETHBRIDGE

Goal
29 Hughson - 35 Edmonds

Defence
5 Rayman – 2 Hansen
10 Orban – 7 Jensen
24 Fisher – 3 Valentine

Forwards
14 Moser – 6 R Maxwell - 20 B Maxwell
13 M Maxwell – 19 Valentino – 12 McKechnie
21 White – 23 Gore - 8 Chynoweth
18 Clowes – 47 Kalshnikov – 9 Sward

Scratches
11 Merkley – 16 Maltby – 17 Filbrandt
27 Wardley - 33 Hogue – 34 Sanvido

Blake Heinrich was forced out of the Bison line-up due to his major penalty on Friday night. He was replaced by Calvin Spencer, and Brett Stovin went from forward to defence. For Lethbridge, the line-up was the same except that today's “ghost” was #9 Dalton Sward. (To me a “ghost player” is one who is listed on the LeagueStat roster but is never seen by me on the ice.) Last night their ghost was #16 Tyler Maltby.

Here's who scored:

1st 07:08 – Man Remi Laurencelle (7)
1st 09:03 – Leth Artsiom Kalashnikov (2)
1st 12:08 – Leth Tyler Hansen (2)
2nd 02:19 – Man Michael St. Croix (10)
2nd 03:59 – Man Liam Bilton (7)
2nd 04:59 – Man Quintin Lisoway (12) (PP)
3rd 02:38 – Man Michael St. Croix (11)
3rd 04:36 – Leth Dallas Valentine (4)
3rd 07:02 – Man Brad Bowles (3) (PP)
3rd 19:59 – Man Michael St. Croix (12) (PP)

The 1st period was firewagon hockey. The Bisons outshot the 'Horns 16-12, but the 'Horns held a 2-1 lead. Laurencelle picked the top corner on a nice shot to open the scoring. His return to the line-up has really helped balance the Bison scoring. He now is 7-6-13 in just 12 games played. He also had two assists on the night. AK47 aka Kalashnikov had two goals on the weekend, and oddly those are his first two goals of the season. He was one of the 'Horns' better players.

As on Friday, the Bisons experienced a 3-goal outburst to turn the game around. This time it was a stretch of under 3 minutes early in the 2nd period which did the trick. Of note, Lisoway's 4-2 goal was his 9th in 10 games played this semester.

The Bisons protested on Lethbridge's 5-3 goal. Byron Spriggs was dumped by a 'Horns' stick which was caught in his skate. When he tried getting up the stuck stick tripped him. At least nobody broke a stick over his head, I guess. (Sly reference to the blown call in the Jets-Knights game this week. Link: https://youtu.be/-b3sOxMZ9hI.)

Things were getting testy in the latter stages of the 3rd period. St. Croix finished his hat-trick on a powerplay when otherwise they would have just killed the clock.

Spriggs got the win, with 28 saves on 31 shots. Lethbridge started with Garret Hughson, who gave up 4 goals on 22 shots. Ty Edmonds finished it off with 21 saves on 24 shots.

The Bisons have thus completed their regular season home schedule. However, they are guaranteed a home playoff series. Lethbridge is on life-support. They must defeat Regina twice and hope that the Bisons beat Calgary twice. If the Bisons pull it off, they could also jump ahead of Saskatchewan, should they lose a pair to MRU. Not holding my breath. I suspect we'll be watching Bisons-Dinos on Feb 16-18.

My theory has been that the Kittens can deliver one tough game per weekend, and that was the case in this series. They held a 3-2 lead late in the 2nd period when Chris Collins scored a late powerplay goal to tie the game, then he followed that with another powerplay goal mid-way through the 3rd. Michael Herringer appears to have rediscovered his game, with 42 saves on 46 shots in taking the loss for Regina. Jordan Papirny stopped 23 of 26 shots for the win.

Well, I am sure you will be relieved to know that the drought is over for the Evil Monkeys. Their game report points out that this win gives them 1st place for the first time since back in 2014-15. Any Leafs fans out there? Steve Owre scored twice and Brendan Burke stopped 28 of 29 shots for the winners. Jordon Cooke stopped 27 of 30 in the loss. The Banjo Mutts still need a point to assure themselves of 2nd place.

Despite the streaks (T-irds' 7 game winning and Bluegars' 4 game losing) this series figured to be a split. Both sides are apparently in playoff mode. The shots were 22-16 for MRU. Cam Lanigan got the win, and Rylan Toth took the loss.

Week #14 - Feb 4/18

Post by Hollywood2 » Mon Feb 05, 2018 6:50 pm

[CENTER]THE OFFICIAL HOLLYWOOD TOP 35 #14[/CENTER]
[CENTER]to Feb 4/18[/CENTER]
This is the second last OHT35 of the regular season. Two teams got a boost in ranking levels this week: McGill (going from B to A) and UBC (going from C+ to B). This had reverberations throughout the rankings.

THE SCORES:

Jan 31 Moncton 1 Dalhousie 2
Jan 31 McGill 4 U.Q.T.R. 3
Jan 31 Waterloo 1 W. Ontario 2
Feb 01 Carleton 4 U.O.I.T. 3 (so)

THE TABLE:

* indicates total includes a tie game
Conf. indicates overall conference record
Con-x indicates exhibition record within conference
CIS-x indicates exhibition record within CIS but outside conference
CIS indicates regular season and exhibition record against CIS teams
Other indicates record against non-CIS teams
Total indicates record against all teams
∞ In the official standings, Calgary were penalized 2 wins against UBC, a win and OTL against Lethbridge, and an OTL against Alberta for use of an ineligible player. And UQTR was penalized 2 wins against Nipissing, Lakehead, Laurentian, a win and OTL against Queen's, two OTLs against RMC, and a win over Carleton.


Image

The promoted teams (in green) are McGill and UBC. No teams are in red (for those suffering a fall). The blue “bubble teams” are few in number. Ryerson clings to the B level, and Lethbridge could easily fall to C level either as a one-way shift, or perhaps to be replaced by Toronto or Windsor.

With McGill and UBC moving up, the “AOA” numbers are skewed for many teams, owing to small sample sizes in some segments. So in four segments of the rankings (in purple) there was a departure from the AOA rankings. In those cases teams were better ranked using simple comparative records and strength-of-schedule within their division. In the CW, Sask stays in A and Manitoba in B with a slightly better AOA. In the B rankings, Concordia slips in between Queen's and Carleton. In C+ Ottawa slips behind UQTR in the OUA East while in the OUA West Brock slips down and UWO slips up in between Guelph and Laurier in a 4-team virtual dead heat.

In a final note, UPEI and Dalhousie have been showing an ability to beat the good teams in the AUS. Maybe one of them could fill that empty C+ part of the AUS rankings.

1st half v 2nd half

The final weekend of the regular season is in the offing. One thing which pops out at me is the contrast of 1st and 2nd half records for the various teams. Here's the table:
