SERIES PREVIEW:
BISONS/BANJODOGS SHOWDOWN FOR 2ND


Image Image

MANITOBA BISONS
(14-8-2, 30 points, tied for 2nd place, #7 in OHT34)
SASKATCHEWAN HUSKIES
(13-7-4, 30 points, tied for 2nd place, #9 in OHT34)


FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 19TH @ 7:00 CST : [LIVE VIDEO]
SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 20TH @ 7:00 CST
AT SASKATOON, SASKATCHEWAN


The Bisons are on a splitting streak of epic proportions. They have split their last 6 series, once against each team in the league. Sask has been similar, with 3 OTLs in recent weeks to bolster their record. Manitoba holds all tie-breakers, so a split would likely put them into 2nd place.

For those not aware, in the CW playoffs the higher seed hosts the whole best-of-3 series. This means that #2 will host #3 with the winner guaranteed a berth at the University Cup.

Friday's game is live on the web. I hope to check it out.

Both sides will be keeping an eye on the out-of-town scoreboard where Calgary hosts UBC. After a tough loss in their series opener against Lethbridge a couple weeks back they looked like a team that had given up. But an exhibition game against Norway's Olympic team was followed a split in Alberta. So if they could take a point or two away from Calgary this weekend it would help both Manitoba and Sask.

I caught much of the game on the internet while juggling the Olympics on TV and computer and a Moose game on radio. The game was very close throughout and very fast-paced. Sask scored once per period and built a 3-0 lead. The Bisons poured it on but only scored the once (Mike Hellyer, his 11th), albeit with a couple of goal posts tossed in. An empty-netter sealed the deal.

The result makes the Saturday night rematch a second place showdown. While the winner will not clinch 2nd, they will come pretty close. The Bisons have been in this situation very often lately. The Friday loss followed by the Saturday victory.

The Puddy-Tats had the Evil Monkeys on the ropes. Regina got off to a 2-0 lead then finished the 1st up 2-1. But Alberta roared back, with a 20-4 shots advantage and 3 unanswered 2nd period goals. However, Regina fought back to tie and then Alberta wrapped it up with 5 minutes left when Ian McDonald scored his 13th.

BISONS SWEPT ... HUSKIES 1 POINT AWAY FROM 2ND

MANITOBA BISONS 1
SASKATCHEWAN HUSKIES 4

|> [LEAGUESTAT SUMMARY] ~ [SCORER'S SHEET] ~ [CIS BOXSCORE]
|> [U OF S STORY] ~ [U OF M STORY]


This weekend sweep was devastating for the Bisons. After being a front-runner all season their recent split-streak allowed Sask and Calgary to catch and then surpass them. The Herd did outshoot Sask on the night, albeit with a 15-6 edge in the 3rd period when they were playing catch-up. They took the season series 7-6 on points against Sask. So in the event of a tie the Bisons get 2nd place.

The Evil Monkeys scored 30 seconds into overtime to sweep the Puddy-Tats by identical 5-4 scores. One has to wonder about the Evil Monkeys. IMO, the Evil Monkeys are a vulnerable team right now. I could easily imagine Manitoba or Calgary beating them.

CALGARY DINOSAURS 3

|> [LEAGUESTAT SUMMARY] ~ [SCORER'S SHEET] ~ [CIS BOXSCORE]
|> [C.W. STORY] ~ [U OF C STORY] ~ [UBC STORY]


While the other two series produced identical scores, this one was off a goal. UBC showed signs of life after being eliminated and puit in yet another credible performance. However, they had nothing to show for it after the Dinos scored with just over a minute to go. One has to wodner about the UBC program heading into next year. Calgary is assured of either a 3rd or 4th place finish.

NEXT UP:
  • Feb 26: Saskatchewan @ Lethbridge
    Feb 26: Regina @ Manitoba
    Feb 27: Saskatchewan @ Lethbridge

    The Bisons would finish 2nd if they sweep and Sask loses twice.
    The Bisons would finish 3rd if they get at least 3 points against Regina.
    The Bisons would finish 4th if they get 1 or 2 points against Regina.
    The Bisons would finish 4th if they get no points and Lethbridge gets 3 or fewer points against Sask.
    The Bisons would finish 5th if they get no points and Lethbridge sweeps Sask.

BISONS END FRIDAY CURSE ... AND WRAP UP PLAYOFF BERTH

Image Image
REGINA COUGARS 1
MANITOBA BISONS 4

|> [LEAGUESTAT SUMMARY] ~ [SCORER'S SHEET]
|> [U OF M STORY] ~ [C.W. STORY]


The Friday night curse has been lifted! The Bisons' last Friday win was over Lethbridge back on January 8th. This one assured them of a playoff berth. My boy was not feeling well and so we left after the 2nd period and listened to it on UMFM. My impression was that Regina is not here to put up much of a fight. They have had some decent results in the 2nd half of the season. However, tonight they never had too much to offer.

The 1st period was 1-1 with the Bisons having a territorial advantage and a 13-9 lead in shots. The only Regina goal came off a lazy clearance by d-man David Brown right after a successful penalty kill. Jared Jagow of the Cougars pounced and temporarily tied the game. The game was hard-hitting and chippy at times. I thought that there could have been some fireworks in the 2nd. Instead Regina mustered only 3 shots on goal, followed by 6 more in the 3rd. Steve Christie enjoyed a relative night off in the Bison goal as the Puddy-Tats surrendered meekly.

The two Bison goals I saw were both shots from the blueline by d-men. Travis Mealy notched his 4th and Brandon Lockerby rung up his second goal of the season. The 3rd period insurance goals were scored by Kyle Howarth (his 6th) and Tyler Dittmer (his 8th). All goals were through the 5-hole. And, 3 were on the PP. (Each side had 5 PPs and Regina was blanked on their's.)

Here's how they lined up:
  • MANITOBA BISONS

    Goal:
    Christie (McHale)

    Defence:
    Lockerby - Brown
    Workman - Lenoski
    Erb - Mealy

    Forwards:
    Dittmer - Walker - Macaulay
    Duval - Wild - Hellyer
    Beller - Benias - Howarth
    Waker - Wood - Dudar

    REGINA COUGARS

    Goal:
    Ward (Hilton)

    Defence:
    Bender - Nielsen
    Blair - Chapman
    McPherson (they dressed 5 d-men and mixed and matched)

    Forwards:
    Sawka - Cuthbert - Johnstone (Kauk mixed in)
    Jagow - LeBlanc - Smith
    Stengler - Scott - Bhungal
    Pearpoint - Schultz - Nelson

The Horny Ones put on a valiant 2nd half comeback on the season and it will come up just short. They are now 9-2-0 since the Christmas break. The rest of the conference will be relieved that they won't be in the playoffs. They had to hope Regina would beat Manitoba twice and then they could have claimed 4th place with a sweep of Sask.

This was in many ways a prototypical Lethbridge win. Get outshot, cash in on chances, then hang on for dear life. Sask outshot them 34-20 after two periods yet trailed 4-1. Then Sask scored twice on 8 shots in the 3rd to make it close.

NEXT UP:
  • Feb 27: Saskatchewan @ Lethbridge
    Feb 27: Regina @ Manitoba
    Bye - Alberta, UBC, Calgary
    end of regular season

    Here's the skinny:
    The Bisons would finish 2nd if they win and Sask loses in regulation.
    The Bisons would finish at least 3rd if they get at least 1 point.
    The Bisons would finish 4th if they lose in regulation.

BISONS SWEEP ... FALL SHORT OF 2ND

Image Image
REGINA COUGARS 3
MANITOBA BISONS 5

|> [LEAGUESTAT SUMMARY] ~ [SCORER'S SHEET]
|> [U OF M STORY]


With minor hockey playoffs starting all over Winnipeg, my son's game forced me to miss the 1st period of the final Bison home game of the regular season. Upon arrival, I saw that the Bisons were down 2-1 although they outshot Regina 18-9. Also, Chad Erb had been given 4 minhutes in penalties and a game misconduct. I don't know what happened but I do know the Bisons were frustrated with the referee. As the game wore on he doled out several 10 minute misconducts, something rarely seen this year.

It did not appear that the teams aligned themselves much differently from Friday night. However, Regina rotated goaltenders, giving former South Bliue Brant Hilton the start. And #17 Tanner Schultz switched from forward to defence.

The 1st period saw Regina get two goals from Partik Bhungal (his 2nd and 3rd of the season) and Kyle Howarth (7th) replied for the Bisons. I was away so I can't say what happened.

The 2nd period saw the Bisons trying to kill a slew of penalties. Caine Pearpoint scored on a PP to give Regina a 3-1 lead. However, once the penalties were over (including a 5-on-3) the Bisons dominated play. Goals from Calin Wild (7th), Howarth (2nd of the night and 8th of the season), and Jered Walker (5th) were part of a 15 shot onslaught that put the Bisons ahead to stay.

A 3rd period insurance goal from Blair Macaulay (8th) salted it away. The Kittens only scratched together 5 3rd period shots and never mounted much of a comeback.

After the game the fans were advised that Lethbridge held a 2-1 lead on Sask and there was hope that the result would hold and that Manitoba would get 2nd place and another home series. But that will only happen if they win away to Sask whilst Calgary knocks off Alberta.

Sask was down 2-1 heading into the 3rd period of this one but when they forced overtime they got the point they needed to secure 2nd place. In the end, Sask led Manitoba by 2 points, who led Calgary by 2 points, who led Lethbridge by 2 points. The Horny Ones get credit for mounting a nice comeback.

    The win gives the Bison Broads the series 2 games to 1. They will now play the Alberta Pandas for the title yet again. Of note, Bison all-star goaltender Stacy Corfield was injured in game 2. Tara Lacquette was called upopn and delivered a clutch performance for the win. The Bisons upset Alberta in last year's final. This year only one team from the CW goes to nationals, making it a must-win series.

SEMI-FINAL PREVIEW

MANITOBA BISONS
(16-10-2, 34 points, 3rd place, #8 in OHT34)
SASKATCHEWAN HUSKIES
(16-8-4, 36 points, 2nd place, #7 in OHT34)


FRIDAY, MARCH 5TH @ 7:00 CST
SATURDAY, MARCH 6TH @ 7:00 CST
SUNDAY, MARCH 7TH @ TBA
AT SASKATOON, SASKATCHEWAN


First, the games will be [WEBCAST]. Make sure you click to watch. Hopefully, the Bison webacsts will expand from the IGAC next year.

The Banjodogs pipped the Bisons for 2nd place by virtue of their OTLs this year. While the Bisons beat them 7-6 on points this year, sask did sweep the Bisons in February which basically gave them 2nd place. (BTW, Sask was 7-5 in the 2nd half, and Manitoba was 7-7.)

The much-heralded off-season recruits for Sask started to come together in the 2nd half. However, the Bisons have a sold defence and Steve Christie is as good a goaltender as there is in this league. The Bison PP has shown signs of life, after having been an achilles heel the last couple of seasons. And while Sask was sputtering against Lethbridge last weekend, the Herd was trampling the Banjocats.

Of note, the CW gets 2 berths in this year's University Cup. Therefore, the winners of this series and the Alberta-Calgary series will be off to Thunder Bay.

A bad start did the Bisons in. It took only 28 seconds for the Huskies to score. By 3 minutes it was 2-0. The Bisons were able to mount a comeback and for the most part controlled the 2nd and 3rd periods. The Bison goals both came from the blueline with Chad Erb and Kip Workman scoring. Kyle Howarth was injured on a high stick. There was no penalty on the play but he was taken to hospital. We'll see what line-up changes the Bisons might make. I am not sure if Riley Dudar is playable.

If you have a lap-top I would suggest tuning into game 2 whilst watching Hockey Night in Canada on TV. The Bisons will technically be the home team for game 2. If game 3 is necessary then the Huskies will go back to being the home team.

McGill is now assured of a berth in the nationals. But since Lakehead is hosting this year, UQTR still has a chance. If Lakehead defeats Western Ontario (they lead 1-0) then UQTR and UWO would play for the 6th place in the tournament. However, if UWO wins the OUA West then they will qualify and Lakehead will settle for their host berth.

    These teams were extremely d-oriented in this one. They combined for only 33 SOG. In fact, Manitoba had only 2 SOG in the 2nd, and Alberta had only 2 in the 3rd. Manitoba's starting goaltender Stacy Corfield remains on the DL. But if they can't score it won't matter. Last year the Bisons won the ladies' title. They need a weekend sweep to replicate that feat.

I caught most of the game on the U of S Webcast. While the 2nd period encountered significant transmission problems, I did get a good sense of the action. The Bisons led 2-1 after the 1st period on a pair of goals by Jered Walker. Kyle Bortis relied for Sask. On the Bortis goal Steve Christie appeared injured. But after some medical attention he continued on, and played a strong game.

The Bisons gained strength as the game went on. The 2nd period was mostly their's, as was the 3rd. There was no scoring in the 2nd. But Greg Beller and Rick Wood scored 3rd period goals to give the team an insurmountable lead. A PP goal by Steve Gillen allowed the Banjodogs to make the scoreline look respectable.

In a unique twist, the Bisons were deemed to be the home team and wore their home whites. I also heard that they were allowed to import electricity, post-game showers, and soap for the event. We'll see if the Saskatchewanites are able to recover from a day with this new-fangled additions to their simple land.

Kyle Howarth did not dress for the Bisons after being injured on Friday. Riley Dudar dressed in his place.

Game 3 goes Sunday at 7:00 p.m. I recommend the webcast. Even if it cuts out on occasion there is live chat with several Bison fans available.

After one goaltender was hurt and another suspended on Friday, Calgary had to dress and start Nathan Deobald in net. He did well. It was 1-1 late in the 3rd when the Evil Monkeys scored the winner, followed by an empty-netter. Next weekend, Alberta will host the Man-Sask winner.

Lakehead earned a spot in the nationals by winning the OUA West tonight. The twist here is that as host team they already had a spot. So The Urban Cowboys are lucky losers. And UQTR gets a new lease on life after having lost out on Friday. Next weekend a special playoff will be held between UQTR and Western Ontario for the OUA's host position in the nationals.

What a game! The Bisons are on their way to the University Cup!

I followed on the U of S webcast and it was a blast. I was able to chat with other Bison fans and other CIS fans from coast to coast while the game was on. I hope this is added to the U of M next year. It would also be nice to use for other leagues as well, even the NHL. I digress ...

The 3 games in 3 nights format puts a premium on utilizing all of one's roster, and that the Bisons did. While the Bisons can roll 4 lines, the Huskies rely on their big gunners. And they seemed to have run out of gas. The Bison goals tonight were mostly from the slot in situations where the Huskies failed to play the body, both ion front of net and in the small corners of The Rutherford.

The Macaulay-Walker-Dittmer line was on fire all weekend. And they notched the only goal of the 1st period, when Macaulay cashed in. Play was fairly even, although the Bisons seemed to be more "in control".

The 2nd period was the decider. Several penalties were called. The only time Sask generated offence was when they had the PP. Otherwise it was all Bisons. After the Bisons killed their penalties (the Huskies had a 5-1 PP edge at one point) they cashed in two goals when the Banjodogs were punished. Mike Hellyer and Blair Macaulay had two goals each in the period.

The 3rd period was fairly uneventful until a last minute "brawl" (where the Bisons fastidiously avoided getting any fighting majors) came about when the Banjodogs were thoroughly frustrated with the turn of events.

I have to point out, too, that Steve Christie stopped 33 of 34 shots on goal on the night.

All-in-all, the Bison PP went 2-for-7 whilst the Banjodogs went 1-for-11.

Next weekend the Herd will be off to Edmontown to face the Evil Monkeys. The teams have split 4 games this year. The two games in Winnipeg were some of the best hockey I have seen this year, including AHL and NHL hockey. I won't be able to go to Edmontown, but maybe Thunder Bay! I doubt I could do it but a chance to see the Bisons in Thunder Bay sounds awfully appealing. Manitoba and Alberta know they will be joined by Lakehead and McGill.

BTW, this puts to an end the streak of Alberta-Saskatchewan finals going back to about 1996.

C.W. FINAL MEGA-PREVIEW

C.W. FINAL MEGA-PREVIEW

Image Image

MANITOBA BISONS
(16-10-2, 34 points, 3rd place, #4 in OHT34)
ALBERTA GOLDEN BEARS
(23-4-1, 47 points, 1st place, #1 in OHT34)


FRIDAY, MARCH 12TH @ 8:30 CST [SSN WEBCAST]
SATURDAY, MARCH 13TH @ 8:30 CST [SSN WEBCAST]
SUNDAY, MARCH 14TH @ 8:00 CST [SSN WEBCAST]
AT EDMONTON, ALBERTA


The games I saw between these two teams were some of the best hockey I have seen this year in any league. The Evil Monkeys are used to being in this situation and should be able to deliver a good performance. The Bisons could go any way. They might go on a roll and shock the Monkeys, or they might be happy with their trip to the nationals and overlook this one.

At this point, there is an audio-only webcast on SSN scheduled for each game. Hopefully they will add some video, so stay tuned. Since I will be at the Moose game on Friday night I will be checking for updated scores on League Stat, as I am prone to do.

The winner of the game will be assured of a top 3 seeding at the nationals. In fact, the Evil Monkeys will get the #1 seed if they win. The two teams would also be seeded into opposite pools.

The Evil Monkeys have won so many hockey titles (13 national and 47 conference titles) that the rest of the league is shocked when somebody else wins. If the Bisoins win they can expect congratulations to flow from across the league. In fact, since the Bisons' last finals appearance in 2001 (when they lost 2-0 to Alberta) every final has been Sask at Alberta. And Alberta won all but one of those. The Bisons have won two CW titles (1920 and 1965) and four GPAC titles (1976, 1977, 1984, 1985) when the conference was split in two, along with one national title.

While the Evil Monkeys' history is impressive, and they are currently ranked #1 nationally, they have shown to be vulnerable this year. I don't see them walking through the Bisons and the field at the nationals. They could very well win it all, but it won't be easy.

    The Sheaf: Dogs get downed at Rutherford Rink - Here's a quote:
    Rutherford Rink has nothing going for itself, especially following the men’s Huskies weekend semi-final trouncing.

    The much-maligned rink on campus, with its fossil-like construct and generally seedy appearance, boasts more critics than it can seat spectators. Yet, for all the rust that randomly falls from the ceiling, or cries to have the 81-year-old facility replaced, it has always been a playoff dynamo: the Saskatchewan men’s hockey team had never lost in their previous 17 post-season series.

    But this past weekend the Manitoba Bisons brought shame to the resident Huskies in the form of yet another premature playoffs departure.

    The Star Phoenix: Bisons turn the tide on Huskies - here's a quote:
    The University Manitoba Bisons accomplished something no other team managed to do this season -- beat the University of Saskatchewan Huskies on home ice in regulation.

    Not once, but twice.

    "They came in our barn and won twice -- all the credit to them," said a sombre U of S coach Dave Adolph after watching the Bisons rally from a one-game-to-none deficit to take their best-of-three Canada West semifinal series 2-1 with a 5-1 win Sunday night before a stunned Dog House.

    "You battle all year for home-ice advantage and it doesn't happen very often in our league that, in a situation like that, a visiting team comes in and wins two games."

FINAL PREVIEW STORIES:
  • The Winnipeg Sun: First Canada West title since ’65 within Bisons’ sight - Jim Bender's article previews the final and recaps the semi. It talks a lot about goaltending. Yes, it is key. But same can be said for Alberta if they want to win.
    While Sirant called it a team victory, the Bisons probably could not have won the best-of-three series over Saskatchewan without the superb play of veteran goalie Steve Christie.

    “The key in any league in playoffs is goaltending and we got that in Steve Christie,” said Sirant.

    Christie was named the first star when the Bisons beat the Huskies 4-2 in Game 2 and the second star when Manitoba won the deciding game 5-1.

    “Steve gives us a chance to win every night,” said Workman, who will be competing at the nationals for the first time in his last year of eligibility.

    “I think I can count on one hand the number of bad games he’s had in the last four years. He also helps us out, being defencemen, playing the puck all the time, and I just can’t say enough good things about Steve.”
    GoBisons.ca: Bison men’s hockey team play for Canada West championship at Alberta - The story points out the basic stats and that the Bisons are heading out early, flying on Thursday afternoon.
    Image

    The Gateway: Hockey Bears, Bisons ready to collide for Canada West crown - This is from Evan Daum at the U of A. The story quotes the Evil Monkeys' head organ grinder Eric Thurston Howell II:
    We split with Manitoba there, we split with them here, and they're a good team that works very hard. If they get up on you, they can really shut things down," Bears head coach Eric Thurston said.

    "They really played well in Saskatchewan winning 5–1 on the Sunday, and that's a credit to how good their team is."

    With Canada West sending two representatives this season to the national tournament in Thunder Bay, the Bisons head to Edmonton with a berth at nationals already in their back pocket, having nothing to lose against the nation's number-one team.

    Manitoba comes into Clare Drake Arena not only knowing they've beaten Alberta twice this season, but also bringing with them arguably the conference's top goaltender in the form of Steve Christie.

    "They know they've had success against us, and have come in here and played very well. Obviously, when they make a mistake, Christie is there to make the save, so I think they're going to play with a lot of confidence — a certain swagger — and be very physical against us. We have to make sure that mentally and physically we're plugged in, and are ready for possibly three really tough games," Thurston explained.

    Image
OUT EAST:
  • The AUS and OUA have both produced some surprising results in early rounds. In the end, the final four in the OUA were mostly as predicted by most pundits in the pre-season. And St. FX's stunning 3-0 sweep of UNB is still sending shockwaves across the country. Here's the skinny:

    Image Image
    ST. MARY'S HUSKIES 3
    ST. FRANCIS-XAVIER X-MEN 2

    (in double overtime)
    (SMU leads best-of-five series 2-0)
    |> [MAR 9 CIS BOXSCORE]


    Oddly, these two don't resume the series until Monday. One has to doubt that St. Mary's would blow this lead. But remember what happened in last year's nationals? They could lose their final pool game by 2 goals and still advance, but gave up 5 3rd period goals to blow it.

    Mike Danton played for St. Mary's. No goals, no assists, 2 PIMs, and 3 SOG. That's still a bizarre story.

HERD TRAMPLE EVIL MONKEYS ... ONE GAME AWAY FROM TITLE!

MANITOBA BISONS 4

The Bisons' win! They are now only one game away from a win which would shock the country. I was following along while at the Moose game. When I finally was able to hit the right LeagueStat page I saw that the Bisons held a 2-0 lead on goals by Jered Walker and Stephane Lenoski. This despite being outshot 18-4. One reason for that was 4 powerplays for the Evil Monkeys and only one for the Bisons.

The 2nd period saw the teams swap goals so the Bisons carried a 3-1 lead into the 3rd. The Primates enjoyed a 17-9 shots edge in the period. Without having seen the game, I surmise that the TSN Turning Point came when Brandon Lockerby scored with about 5 minutes left to make it 3-1 Herd. On that play Colin Joe (the feces-throwing Monkey) took a 5 minute major (for interference) and a game misconduct. The Bisons then carried that momentum into the 3rd period. Blair Macaulay's 4th goal of the playoffs came at 1:33 of the 3rd and the Evil Monkeys were toast.

Steve Christie stopped 46 of 47 shots on the night to earn 1st star honours. The Macaulay-Walker-Dittmer unit notched 3 more goals. They have certainly found their form, with 8 goals in 4 games. Combined with switching Rick Wood and Calin Wild as centres on their lines has evened out the Bison attack. It seems that they were able to roll the 4 lines again, which could pay dividends as it did in game 3 against Sask.

I was hoping to watch game 2 on an internet webcast. However, apparently game 1 was audio-only. I cross my fingers.

Re: 2009-10 Manitoba Bisons Hockey Thread

Post by Hollywood2 » Sat Mar 13, 2010 9:43 am

A lot of new stories are out there, plus there were updates to the usual ones most of which were posted last night. I also heard on HF Boards that Alberta intends to have a video webcast for tonight's game at the same link.

Game day links:

Pre-game media: Post-game media: NOTE:
BTW, the post-game stories all forgot about the 1985 series between Manitoba and Alberta, likely because it does not show up in Canada West records. At that time, Alberta won the CW and the Bisons won GPAC. Alberta beat Manitoba 2-1 with game 3 going into overtime. It was a "western regional series" as part of University Cup qualifying. See the history link at GoBisons.ca.

EVIL MONKEYS LEVEL SERIES ON CONTROVERSIAL CALL

MANITOBA BISONS 1
ALBERTA GOLDEN BEARS 2

The Bisons had the Evil Monkeys right where they wanted them but could not put them away. I saw the game via the internet on SSN. I thought the game was fairly evenly played and in the end Alberta cashed in on their breaks better.

Ian Duval gave the Herd a lead 7:22 into the 2nd period, and the Bisons had a decisive edge in play at that time. However, about 8 minutes later Primate Eric Hunter dumped one onto the net from an extreme angle and it snuck past Steve Christie to level the score.

After some to-and-fro action in the 3rd period, Hunter took a high sticking penalty. Alberta quickly took a too-many-men penalty and the Bisons were on the PP. However, an interference penalty was called on Tyler Dittmer on what was a bit of a dive. The Bisons had a few seconds of one-man advantage left and almost scored. But, as luck would have it, Alberta's Sean Ringrose around the rosie zipped home a rebound to give the Evil Monkeys their first lead of the night. With just over 3 minutes left another penalty was called on Nolan Waker which killed most of the remaining time.

Don't forget, game 3 can been on-line Sunday at 8:00 CDT HERE.

OTHER MEDIA STORIES: OUT EAST:
  • Image Image
    MCGILL REDMEN 3
    LAKEHEAD THUNDERWOLVES 1

    |> [CIS STORY] ~ [CIS BOXSCORE]

    The OUA holds a one-game final for the Queen's Cup between the winners of the East and West Conferences. Lakehead hosted before a sell-out crowd. I saw a good portion of the game and was disappointed with Lakehead and their highly touted offence. Despite trailing going into the 3rd period, they mustered only 12 shots in the 3rd, and no goals. The result means Lakehead can be seeded no higher than 4th at the nationals. The McGilligutties are guaranteed a top 3 seed.

    WESTERN ONTARIO MUSTANGS 4
    UQTR PATRIOTES 5

    |> [CIS STORY] ~ [CIS BOXSCORE]

    The Urban Cowboys blew this one. The OUA gets two national berths, plus Lakehead as host. So since Lakehead also won the OUA West, a one-game playoff between conference runners-up was held for a spot in the nationals. The Urban Cowboys appeared to have the game in the bag, up 4-2 with 90 seconds left. But UQTR scored 3 goals in 31 seconds to send the Urban Cowboys packing. Good riddance. They have been choking so bad in the second half they don't deserve a spot at the nationals.
