The game started earlier than I expected so I missed the first period on CanadaWest.tv. At that time the Bisons had built a 2-0 lead on goals by Blair Macaulay and Myles Rumsey, and held a 13-10 edge in SOG. However, they were also two men shorthanded to start the second.

The officiating in the 2nd period was highly questionable. The Bisons started the period two men short and then were assessed a further 12 minutes in minors, a 5 minute major, and three 10 minute misconducts. The Evil Monkeys had a total of four minutes in minors. That means they had about 17 minutes of power play time during the period, often including two minute stretches of a 2-man advantage. On one play a little monkey named Ian Barteuax hacked and pushed at Jered Walker after the whistle. Walker pushed back and Barteaux flew Sedin-like to the ice. Walker got 5 minutes for his efforts.

Yet the Bisons out-scored the Monkeys by 2-1 in the period for a 4-1 lead. Tylet Dittmer scored on a rare even-strength situation. The Monkeys were able to finally score on a PP about 14 minutes in. Then, to rub salt in the wounds, the Bisons got a PP goal from Ian Duval in the final minute.

Joe Caligiuri was doing great work in the Bison goal, and the PK was very effective. However, the team looked tired in the 3rd. The Primates scored three unanswered goals to tie the game. But in the last 90 seconds Dane Crowley made a cross-ice pass to Mike Hellyer who one-timed it into the net for a 5-4 victory.

Saturday's game is also on CanadaWest.tv at 8:00 CDT.

The game followed a typical pattern for the Feline Hillbillies: Get badly outshot and hang on for dear life. Only this time the Canine Hillbillies racked up an early 3 goal lead and coasted to a win. Starting goaltender A.J. Whiffen was yanked in less than 5 minutes when Sask scored on 3-of-5 shots. So the Melons shall be worn on the heads of the Huskies tonight! The rematch shifts to the 'Toon for Saturday night.

This one was also on CanadaWest.tv and I checked it out on occasion. It seemed a fairly evenly-played game. UBC built a 2-0 lead. Then the Viagra kicked in for he H0rny Ones and they took control while building a 3-2 lead. UBC were able to force OT. The shoot-out produced one goal in 10 attempts.

I saw this one on CanadaWest.tv. They had three games on tonight but since they all started at the same time I saw very little of the other two games. The game did not have the mean streak of Friday's game. It was still a well-played hockey game but was basically a normal 1-1 tie. Until the end.

The game went into overtime and the first OT (4 on 4) was scoreless. So they went to the second OT (3 on 3). The Evil Monkeys had two extra Monkeys jump out on the ice when they should have been swinging from a branch. One was fed a pass and before you know it the puck was in the net. But not so fast. The linesmen noticed the skullduggery and pointed it out to the referees. Since linesmen can call too many men, but cannot whistle the play dead, the call had to await the next whistle, which happened when the Primates were celebrating their "goal". After a pow-wow the call was made, a bench minor was called and the goal waived off. On the ensuing powerplay, Blair Macaulay notched his 3rd goal of the year and the Herd had their sweep.

Dane Crowley had Manitoba's first goal. Joe Caligiuri stopped 34 of 35 shots for his 4th straight win. The Bisons gradually too control of the game, and outshot the Monkeys 8-5 in the 3rd period and 8-3 in overtime.

Folks, that's four wins in four games in Saudi Alberta against the top two rated CW teams in the pre-season coaches' poll. The Bisons will only play 10 more away games this season (double-headers in Sask, UBC, Regina, Lethbridge, and Calgary).

The Banjo-Cats always have a performance boost against the Banjo-Mutts. They came up with their best performance of the season so far, yet fell short. Instead of being grossly outshot and relying upon a bamboozled goaltender, they actually outshot Sask 28-21 and had a 4-3 lead until Kyle Bortis scored twice late in the 3rd to give the Mutts the win.

UBC came from behind 2-0 to gain a split. Pretty much the expected result between these two teams. So it is another 3 point weekend for the Tweety-Birds. The `Birds outshot the H0rny Ones 37-24 on the night.

MID-WEEK UPDATE

Image
Bison d-man Dane Crowley was named CW athlete of the week. Nice to see a d-man awarded something. This was also reported in the Free Press and Winnipeg Sun.
Image

Image
The CIS announced their first Top Ten poll of the season. The Bisons are ranked 3rd behind UNB and McGill in that poll. Of course, the much more authoritative OHT34 has the Bisons 2nd behind only UNB. There are many stories on the poll, at the CW Site, the Daily Gleaner, Boxscore News, and UNB Hockey Fans Blog.

Image

The CIS Blog Canada West Weekly Round-Up is posted and has a review of each team. A shorter story on week 3 is also at South Campus Sports. The U of A Story from the weekend is also at Boxscore News.

I previously cited links for South Campus Sports' individual team previews as they popped up. Just for convenience, I have put them all together in one spot:
UBC : Alberta : Calgary : Lethbridge : Saskatchewan : Regina : Manitoba

Image
The CIS Blog's AUS Weekly Update is also posted. It had a lot about UNB's banner raising and a blurb on each team. I will be interested to see if SMU drops off and if UPEI is able tio make a jump. Although the OHT34 has UNB ranked #1, that could change. A year ago they looked unbeatable.

Image
The North Bay Nugget had a story about the Nipissing Lakers and Ken Peroff, a former North Bay resident playing for Guelph. He talks about the calibre of CIS hockey in comparison to the OHL.

The OUA also gets a jump on weekend play with five mid-week games:

Oct. 19
Queen's at RMC
UOIT at Guelph
Ryerson at Toronto
UQTR at Concordia

The Bisons have been away for quite some time now. It will be nice to see them return home after racking up four big wins in Saudi Alberta. Conversely, the Feline Melonheads have been the least impressive team in the CW so far.

In the pre-season, Regina came to town to face the Herd and won the Friday game 1-0 on the back of a 49 save shut-out by rookie goaltender Lucas Gore. The Hillbillies were badly outshot and outplayed in both pre-season games here, then both games in the States, and then both games in Alberta. Granted, they were facing highly rated teams. But still, things looked bad for the Puddy-Tats. Last weekend against Sask the Friday game was another kickin', but Saturday was a tight game.

Former Bison Terrance Delaronde returned to Regina's line-up last weekend and scored two goals. No other Cougar has more than one. IMO he will be a key player for them, along with their goaltenders.

The Bison leaders have been goaltender Joe Caligiuri (PotW in week #1), defenceman Dane Crowley (PotW in week #3), and forward Blair Macaulay (leading the team with 3 goals and 2 assists).

One objective the Bisons will have is to minimize penalties. They have racking up the PIMs. Now some of that is attributable to referees gone wild in Alberta. But if Regina gets some PP breaks, you never know what might happen.

The H0rny Ones had a dismal pre-season and were on their way to a home sweep by these same Canine Melonheads when a leaking Zamboni caused suspension of a game they trailed 3-0. The above link tells us that the game will be made up in January. However, last weekend they seemed to return to normal when they had the expected split with UBC. I find it odd that these teams are playing twice in rapid succession but so be it. The Banjo-Mutts may just have found the form they have been seeking over the last two years. On paper, they aren't as good as they once were. But past teams have been dramatic under-achievers as well.

The Battle of Alberta is a home-and-home affair with Friday's game in Calgary and Saturday's return match in Edmonton. Hopefully a pre-game coaches' meeting can take place where they can discuss what it's like to get your *** handed to you by the Bisons!

The Evil Monkeys have loads of scoring talent. And after a week off Calgary should have their highly-touted recruits ready to go. This is a hard series to handicap. I just hope that they play two 2-point games.

The OUA got the weekend off to an early start with five mid-week games. Guelph finally tallied their first win. The rest of the games were not at surprising.

UNDERDOGS RULE FRIDAY NIGHT IN THE C.W.

REGINA COUGARS 6
MANITOBA BISONS 1


|> [U of M Story] : [U of R Story] : [CW Friday Recap]
|> [LS Summary] : [CIS Boxscore] : [CIS Friday Round-up]


All three games in the CW were won by the underdog Friday night, so Saturday morning's standings are just a little tighter. I guess in Manitoba, it was the Undercats who prevailed.

But don't let the scoreline fool you. The Bisons carried the play and for most of the night the Puddy-tats looked like they'd rather be running around with watermelons on their heads. In the 1st period the shots were 9-9, but Regina only had the puck in Manitoba's end on the PP. Fortunately for the Banjo-Cats, they had abundant PP opportunities. And the cashed them to build a 3-0 lead. The controversial call was a 5-minute major for interference and game misconduct on Chad Erb. He did hit Lucas Isley late. However it was a solid shoulder to the chest made worse by the fact that Isley was skating full tilt into Erb. Isley went down like he was dead but returned shortly thereafter. Same thing happened to him in the exhibition games. (Sedin-like?)

The 2nd and 3rd periods were one-wa action, with the Bisons leading 26-10 in shots. However, Bison goaltending was less than stellar. Joe Caligiuri was replaced by Jesse Deckert for the last 9 minutes. Deckert, too, let in a softie.

If the two teams play the same way Saturday, I would expect a split. I will have to follow Live Stats online because I have Jets tickets tonight.

Here's how they lined up:

MANITOBA BISONS

Goal:
Caligiuri (51 min.), Deckert (9 min.)

Defence:
Schappert - Crowley
Rumsey - Mealy
Erb - Lockerby

Forwards:
Dittmer - Walker - Macaulay
Hellyer - Benias - Lowry
Cowan - Duval - Davis
Bestland - Lauder - Flynn

Scratches:
Rowinski - Bobbee - Schmidt - Friesen

Note: Neal Prokop is no longer listed on the roster. He played the first two games in Calgary and the pre-season.

REGINA COUGARS

Goal:
Gore (Whiffen did not play)

Defence:
Schneider - Neilson
Fossum - Tendler

Forwards:

Although this one was on CanadaWest.tv I did not see it because I was at the Bison game. Tonight's rematch is the only one available on-line. The H0rny Ones needed a win almost as badly as the Cougars did. They built a 3-0 lead after two periods and then hung on for dear life. They only had 3 shots in the 3rd period and obviously were in a defensive shell. Scott Bowles made 30 save for the win.

|> [U of A Story] : [LS Summary] : [CIS Boxscore]


I saw the ending of this game on CanadaWest.tv and was able to witness the Evil Monkeys lose their 3rd straight on home ice. The downside for the rest of the league is that this a 3-pointer. In a strange twist, Alberta plays their first away game tonight. They also play at home against Sask next weekend. So if they dig themselves a hole now they will have to dig out of it with a whole lot of road games the rest of the way.

The Flintstones scored 2 goals on 4 shots in the 1st period against Real Cyr. After a scoreless 2nd period they then made it 3-0 early in the 3rd. One would have thought the Monkeys would have been toast at that point in time. But Alberta chipped away with 3 goals to force OT. I saw the 3-on-3 portion of overtime and it was end-to-end mayhem and very entertaining. I much prefer that to a shoot-out.

Please note that Saturday's rematch in Calgary is NOT going to available on-line.

Perhaps I shall open tonight's report with a tune ... What's new pussycat? Whoa - oooo - oh - oooo oh oh ...

OK, enough of that. And my Tom Jones pants are getting kind of tight these days. Suffice it to say that all was back to normal for the Banjo-Cats. They were outshot 42-12 and it seems were never really in this one. Down 4-1 entering the 3rd period, they only got 3 shots on goal. In other words the best they could have hoped for was a tie even if they scored on every shot they took.

I was at the Jets-Hurricanes game (5-3 win, yippee!) so all I have to go by is the stats and recaps. It really seems that Regina will be reliant on strong goaltending and opportunistic PP goals to stay in games this year. It is not a great formula for success but it may be the only card they have to play. They'll need to get some points against the Tweety-Birds next weekend. (They better beware of little old ladies armed with umbrellas!)

I also see that the Bisons made some line-up changes. Tyler Schmidt made his first start of the regular season, after having played in some exhibitions once he returned from the Edmonton Oilers' camp. And two other highly touted recruits, Travis Bobbee (D) and Brendan Rowinski (F), saw their first action of any type after rehabbing injuries. Short straws were drawn by Pat Flynn, Darren Bestland, and Austin Lauder. Although Flynn and Bestland are defencemen, they joined Lauder on the 4th line on Friday. It would appear that Brandon Lockerby was moved from D to F and that Bobbee also played up front. With 10 good defencemen in the line-up the Bisons will be shuffling some of them up front throughout the season.

Also, 5th year back-up Jesse Deckert had a rare start in goal and made 11 saves. Scoring-wise, Blair Macaulay had his 4th and 5th goals of the season. Singles went to Jared Walker (his 3rd), and Jordan Davis and Del Cowan notched their first.

The Bisons have a second bye week next weekend. (Crappy scheduling IMO.) Their next action is November 4th and 5th at Saskatchewan. Their next home series is November 11th and 12th against Lethbridge.

I saw a small blurb of this on CanadaWest.tv but missed the ending. The H0rny Ones seem to be back to normal after an abysmal pre-season. They managed a 3-2 series win on points. And this was not one of those games where they were saved by their goaltender. The Banjo-Mutts will be at Alberta next weekend in a series that will be a real measuring stick for these teams.

The Mangy Ones have a nice 4-1 record (and a 5th win in suspended animation) but have only played Lethbridge and Regina so far. The Evil Monkeys are 2-2-2 and have played only one away game.

|> [U of C Story] : [LS Summary] : [CIS Boxscore]


The Evil Monkeys will be tossing some feces at the walls after yet another sweep. At least this weekend they played an away game. The Flintstones are now 3-3 and the Primates 2-2-2, which is the new .500 as well. This is not where these two were expected to be after being ranked #1 and #2 in the pre-season coaches' poll.

Both sides took a defensive outlook on this game. It was scoreless after two periods and each team had only 13 shots on goal. Although there were 3 goals in the 3rd period, the teams still only combined for 12 shots on goal (6 apiece).

Maybe Calgary is finding some form. Maybe the Monkeys are just better on paper than on the ice. I guess we'll have to see how they do next weekend. I am not counting them out just yet.

Bison Bye Week (Again)

Post by Hollywood2 » Sat Oct 29, 2011 12:16 am

October 28, 2011

WEEKLY NEWS:

Just like 3 weeks ago, the Bisons again have a bye week. Without Bison games to review I have to satisfy myself with the out-of-town scoreboard and news from the week just passed.

First, here's the weekly news.

The CW reversed the decision in the Bison OTW over the Evil Monkeys. To recap, in the 2nd OT segment (3-on-3) two Monkeys jumped onto the ice before two Monkeys could jump off. This created a breakaway during which the Monkeys scored. Miraculously, two referees missed the infraction and did not call a penalty. However, at least one linesman did and at the whistle the penalty was called, and the goal waived off. The Bisons scored and won.

The CW evidently believe that the Monkeys' infraction was not evil enough. The logic appears to be that by not calling the penalty right away it could not be called at all. The story is reported at the U of M and U of A sites.

The Official Top Ten was also released. The Bisons were #2 and The Evil Monkeys unranked. Read the OHT34, it's better! Alberta's absence for the first time in 16 years is discussed at SCS,

Here are the weekly blog entries:

Puddy-Tats v Tweety-Birds may not be an epic match-up. But these two usually are fairly close in the standings. Regina was in desperate need of another win to avoid falling out of the race. They remain two points behind UBC and UBC has two games in hand.

The shots were fairly even so maybe Regina has given up on the idea of being grossly outshot and praying the rope-a-dope works. Lucas Gore was in net for the Hillbillies and had another solid outing, although anything under 40+ shots must seem like a stroll in the park. UBC split the game between their two goalies.

The Flintstones have gotten their team going whilst the H0rny Ones are seriously short of Viagra. The Dinos outshot the 'Horns 16-2 and outscored them 3-0 in the 1st period. That pretty much wrapped this one up. Veterans Reid Jorgenson and Brock Nixon had two goals each.

The Evil Monkeys are losing plenty of games on home ice this year. Unless they can somehow pull strings to be allowed to count illegal goals they simply cannot beat any contending teams - on home ice yet. Yes, it went to a shoot-out. But with loads of road games coming these bonus points are just not enough.

Regina held a 2-0 lead until they were repeatedly struck about the head by little old ladies with umbrellas defending the Tweety-Birds. But with the OTL the Puddy-Tats take the series 3-2 on points.

I saw the ending of this one on CanadaWest.tv. Alberta outplayed Sask and really dominated in OT. So each side gets 3 points on the weekend, which stinks for the rest of the league.

The Bisons are coming off their 2nd bye week of the season and have to travel to Canada's armpit. That's right, Saskatchewan, home of the Banjo-Mutts. After a couple seasons of under-achieving it may finally be the year of The Mange. This is a first-place match-up and I would expect tightly contested games.

Check out the links on the WHL scholarships. They list all the WHL players attending school this year. There are 27 attending the U of M:

The Evil Monkeys will visit the H0rny Ones for a Saturday-Sunday series. After lounging on home ice for most of the season, the Monkeys have to prove themselves on the road. The Pronghorns had a poor pre-season then appeared to be getting their act together. However, they were easily dispatched twice by the Dinos last weekend. I think that the other contenders would be happy to see Alberta held to 2 points.

Alberta also announced their exhibition games against Denmark and Czech Republic in preparation for the World Junior championship. Check the link for details. Too bad there is no Team Canada game.

This is the second series for these two. UBC had a win and an OTL last time. Calgary were highly touted in the off-season then sputtered once the season started. Their sweep of Lethbridge has people thinking they have found their form. I'll be interested to see if UBC can hold form. On paper, they are weak. However, their results so far are encouraging.

BISONS DOWNED IN O.T.

SASKATCHEWAN HUSKIES 5

(in overtime)

|> [U of S Story] : [U of M Story] : [CW Friday Recap]
|> [LS Summary] : [CIS Boxscore] : [CIS Friday Round-up]


I was able to watch most of the game on-line at CanadaWest.tv. The Bisons fell behind 2-0 early but scored four goals in the last half of the 1st period, including 2 goals in the last minute, to take a 4-2 lead into intermission. Bisons scorers were Brandon Rowinski (his first as a Bison), Tyler Dittmer, Matthew Lowry, and Ian Duval. By the end of the period the Herd had 16 shots on goal and had the Mutts running around.

The 2nd period belonged to the Boys from the Outhouse. The Bisons seemed content to hold the lead on the road. The only Sask goal came mid-way on a PP. (On the night Sask had 7 PP to 3 for the Bisons, which seemed quite slanted.)

The Bisons defended well and picked up the play in the 3rd period, outshooting the Mangy Ones 14-7. But Sask got the only goal. The refs put away the whistles in the 3rd. While this helped the game flow, it also cost the Bisons some PP opportunities which would otherwise have been awarded as Sask used cross-checks for rebound control purposes whilst under pressure.

Of note, the Bisons dressed 9 forwards and 9 defencemen. The Bisons really need white numbers on their sweaters so I can better tell how they align themselves. Pat Flynn usually plays forward even though listed as a defenceman. Same for Darren Bestland who was scratched, along with Austin Lauder, Jordan Davis, and Mark Friesen.

This was a tight game throughout. It was 2-0 when Calgary scored an empty-netter in the last minute. Then UBC spoiled the shut-out with 10 second sleft, much to the chagrin of Mr. Slate. Dustin Butler was in goal for Calgary. UBC is missing leading scorer Justin McCrae, out indefinitely with an undisclosed injury.

This was not available on-line so all I have is the stats to go by. The teams exchanged 1st period goals, with Del Cowan scoring for the Bisons. The Bisons outshot Sask 12-9 in each of the 2nd and 3rd periods. But Sask's 2nd period goal by Andrew Bailey was all there was. Both sides changed goaltenders from Friday with Jesse Deckert starting for Manitoba and Ryan Holfield for the Mutts.

The best news for the Bisons is that they have now played 6 away games against the top three contenders with their home games still to come.

I tried to watch this one on CanadaWest.tv, however they had no play-by=play announcer. Hopefully they'll have one in tonight's rematch. Alberta had a big edge in the 1st period and ended it with a 2-0 lead and a 12-3 lead in shots. By the end pf the game, though, the H0rny Ones were even on shots and it took an empty-netter to salt it away for the Evil Monkeys.

The Tweety-Birds took the game to split the series. They have now managed 5 points in 4 games from the Flintstones. Both sides used two goaltenders. Dustin Butler was yanked after two periods by the Dinos, after giving up 3 goals on 12 shots. UBC pulled Steven Stanford after he gave up 2 goals on 7 shots in the 1st period. There were a load of misconducts doled out in this one as well.

The H0rny Ones are in town this weekend for a double-header against the Bisons. There is no audio or video for the games. The 'Horns narrowly missed the playoffs the last two years (seasons in which 4 teams qualified) and were anticipated to be a team on the rise. However, their recruiting class was so-so and they had a rough pre-season. They seemed to be picking up but are currently on a 5 game losing skid. They are led by Taylor Gal, who has 5 goals in 10 games.

The Bisons have done well on the road against the top contenders. Now they have to capitalize at home. In their only other home series they split with Regina. One thing to look for is how they handle their over-abundance of d-men and lack of forwards. Last weekend they dressed 9 forwards and 9 defence for each game.

The Banjo-Cats are coming off a bye week. They get a win just often enough to keep me from writing them off. One would think they could get some points at home. Calgary is off to bit of a sub-par start, considering big things were expected of them. Here's to hoping both games are decided in regulation time.

This series is hard to handicap. Are UBC deserving of contender status? Are the Evil Monkeys now an also-ran? Stay tuned, Batman fans. Maybe the caped crusader will toss 'em both into the dungeon. Alberta on home ice NEED wins against the mediocre. If they fail to get them they will have a hard time getting a top-two place in the final standings. They cannot continue to seek, and be granted, the right to count goals scored with too many monkeys on the ice.

LETHBRIDGE PRONGHORNS 2
MANITOBA BISONS 5


|> [U of M Story] : [U of L Story] : [CW Friday Recap]
|> [LS Summary] : [CIS Boxscore] : [CIS Friday Round-up]


The Bisons needed to rack up a win over the H0rny Ones and that's just what they did.

In the opening minute the 'Horns took a penalty and Blair Macaulay scored (his 5th of the year) on the ensuing PP. Chris Benias made it 2-0 a mere 16 seconds later. After a hiatus of 2:02, Mike Hellyer made it 3-0. In anther 23 seconds Brandon Rowinski made it 4-0. Scott Bowles was then yanked from the Lethbridge net and Dylan Tait finished.

To their credit, Lethbridge fought back with 1st period goals by Curtis Cooper and Winston Day Chief. But that was all they could score.

There was no scoring in the 2nd period. And the 3rd was scoreless until Myles Rumsey became the 4th Bison of the night to score for the second time of the season. It should be noted that the Bisons also rang a few off the cross-bar.

Jesse Deckert was in net for the Bisons. He did not distinguish himself in the 1st period. But his play picked up as he shut them out the rest of the way. He made 23 saves on the night. Still, his style makes me nervous. He does somersaults st times.

I am planning to attend Saturday's rematch. The Bisons need two more points. I like their chances.

Here's how they lined up:

MANITOBA BISONS

Goal:
Deckert (Caligiuri)

Defence:
Schappert - Crowley
Mealy - Rumsey
Erb - Schmidt
- Bobbee
(Mealey/Erb rotated with Rumsey/Schmidt/Bobbee)

Forwards:
Dittmer - Walker - Macaulay
Lowry - Duval - Hellyer
Cowan - Benias - Rowinski
- Davis - Lockerby
(other LW also inserted on 4th line)

LETHBRIDGE PRONGHORNS

Goal:
Bowles - Tait

Defence:
Hlookoff - McDougall

Matt Strueby notched a hat-trick for the Melonheads en route to their upset over the Flintstones. Lucas Gore stole the win for Regina with 30 saves on 31 shots. This was an odd game in that Regina scored twice each in the 1st and 3rd periods, during which the shots on goal were 7-7. Calgary outscored Regina 1-0 in the 2nd period and outshot them 17-3. That is the Regina formula.

In a game where the Evil Monkeys felt some pressure, they notched a key win. The stats appear fairly even. There were five different goal-scorers in this one. UBC has shown they can hang with Calgary. Now they have to show they can hang with the Big Three.

MANITOBA BISONS 5


|> [U of M Story] : [U of L Story] : [CW Saturday Recap]
|> [LS Summary] : [CIS Boxscore] : [CIS Saturday Round-up*]


Although the final score was the same on Saturday as it was on Friday, the game was much different. On Saturday there was no early 4-0 lead. Instead, the H0rny Ones scored first and the Bisons gradually assumed control of the game en route to a solid and convincing victory.

The 1st period was fairly even until mid-way, after the teams exchanged goals a minute apart. Dustin Moore scored for the "horns and Ian Duval for the Herd. The Bisons then assumed control and in the end had a 14-9 edge in shots.

By the 2nd period the traffic was pretty much one-way. The Bisons launched 21 shots at Scott Bowles (who was put back in goal after being yanked on Thursday). Dane Crowley had given them a 2-1 lead after 36 seconds. But the 'Horns were hanging in until Brendan Rowinski scored unassisted 13 minutes in. The play was set up when Chris Benias laid all 5 feet of his body on a 'Horn defender to jar the puck loose.

The only goals of the 3rd period were a pair of break-aways by Blair Macaulay. The only assists on both were to defencemen who sprung him loose. A last-minute goal by Moore only served to enhance the score-line.

Joe Caligiuri was back in goal for the Bisons. He is much more comfortable to watch, since he never does somersaults.

Here's how they lined up:

MANITOBA BISONS

Goal:
Caligiuri (Deckert)

Defence:
Schappert - Crowley
Mealy - Rumsey
Erb - Schmidt

The Banjo-Cats were unable to successfully apply their formula in this one, i.e. be badly outshot and hope for some breaks. Oddly, Calgary scored 3 times on 5 shots in the 1st period to acquire an insurmountable lead. The Cougars, even though trailing, did not attempt to mount an offensive comeback. They were outshot 19-2 on home ice in the 2nd period. They started the period down 3-1 and ended it down 5-1. Pretty futile, I would say.

Nevertheless, each team left the weekend with 2 points.

I had hoped to catch the ending on canadawest.tv when I got home from the Bison game, but the site was down. It seems that this, too, was a replay of Friday night's game. The first half of the game was scoreless and UBC actually took a lead. The Bisons will take on UBC on the coast next weekend.

UBC usually has a preview story up when they host a series, but not this time. So, all I have is the usual links to post. I have added the pdf format Canada West Weekly Notes. There is also the Canadian University Press Story on the aspect of almost no fighting in the CIS.

Anyhow, the Bisons have had trouble with weak UBC teams the last two years. They often pick this trip to lay an egg. Points on the road are tough, and UBC has shown an ability to compete with and even on occasion defeat good teams. So the Bisons should be well focused for the double header in British California.

The Banjo-Mutts have exceeded expectations thus far, after having been under-achievers the last couple of years. Meanwhile, the Flintstones were everybody's pick to challenge for a national title. There is clearly a difference between looking good on paper and on the ice. If Calgary wants to mount a challenge then they need to win the series on home ice.

This series may not be generating national interest. But with the CW returning to the 6 team playoff format, this is a key series. These two seemed destined to be in a battle for that 6th and final playoff berth. Regina has mastered
the art of being pounded mercilessly and still scrounging a split on the weekend.
