MANITOBA MOOSE 4
HOUSTON AEROS 3

(Moose lead Western Conference Final 3-0.)

LINKS I watched the game for $8 on the internet. The Moose built leads of 2-0 and 3-1. However, Houston rallied with two 3rd period goals to level the score. The 3rd Houston goal was shorthanded. Michael Grabner was on the point on the PP (I don't like that), missed his check, and allowed a scoring chance. Cory Schneider could have stopped the shot, but still. Anyhow, Grabner redeemed himself with the GWG (his second of the night). Mike Keane and Alexandre Bolduc also scored for the Moose.

Just think: If the Moose win on Wednesday they will have to wait for the Eastern Conference to conclude games 3 through 7.

Game 6 - Mon., May 25 - Houston at Manitoba, 7:30
*Game 7 - Wed., May 27 - Houston at Manitoba, 7:30

Although the Moose lost, the way the game gives me loads of confidence for game 6. The only downside was Schneider's shaky performance in the 1st period which put the team down 2-0 early. But Sanford was good (as we all suspected he would be) and the goals with 20 and 2 seconds remaining showed just what the Moose can do against this team.

HERSHEY BEARS 5
PROVIDENCE BRUINS 2

(Hershey wins Eastern Conference final 4-1.)
[AHL SUMMARY] ~ [AHL STORY]


Since Monday was a U.S. holiday, they played this one in the afternoon. And it was on XM radio as part of a double-header. So Hershey takes the battle of Yogi vs Booboo. Strange thing that Providence was swept in the 3 games played on their home ice.

The Moose controlled the game throughout. The final shots were 36-17 and each period was solidly in favour of the Moose. I watched on AHLlive.com. Pope, Grabner, and Fistric scored for Manitoba. IMO, Pope is as much or more of a revelation that Hodgson in these playoffs. Grabner now has 7 playoff goals. Houston seemed to be playing the waiting game, hoping they would eventually get a PP and a goal then go back to hanging on for dear life.
