HILLBILLIES PICK UP SPLIT

This should have been a sweep for the Herd. The Hillbillies seldom generated much pressure. But several glorious scoring chances missed the mark, and those that were on goal were (with one exception) stopped by Ryan Holfield in the Banjo-Mutts' goal.

The first period was scoreless, with the Bisons holding an 11-6 lead in shots. The margin of shots generally reflected the flow of play.

The second period generated all the goals. Mid-way through the period, Ian Duval dropped a pass to Dane Crowley at the point, only Crowley went right when the pass went left. Derek Hulak pounced on the puck and scored on the breakaway. After 17 minutes, Brennan Bosch knocked home a rebound on a goalmouth scramble. In the final minute, the Bisons pulled one back. Tyler Dittmer scored on the PP several passes after the crowd was yelling "shooooot".

My overall impression is that the Bisons are slightly better and the the Huskies are more offensive on paper than they are on the ice. The only averaged 7 shots per period over the weekend. The top contenders will have to gain as many 4-point weekends as possible against the mid-range and lower teams in the conference.

Here's how they lined up:

Manitoba Bisons (unchanged from Friday):

Goal:
35 Deckert (1 Caligiuri)

Defence:
2 Crowley - 6 Sutherland
4 Schappert - 20 Lockerby
3 Mestery - 24 Bobbee
5 Christensen

Forwards:
23 Dittmer - 19 Duval - 26 Macaulay
27 Feakes - 11 Henry - 29 Cain
21 Cowan - 10 Rowinski - 9 Lowry
18 Kelly - 16 Paradis

Scratches:
12 Chartier - 14 Green - 15 Scott
17 Lauder - 22 Bestland - 34 Dubyk

Saskatchewan Huskies:

Goal:
31 Holfield (30 Voth)

Defence:
4 Delahey - 22 Suer
6 Hobbs - 27 Ward
13 Stebner - 7 Funk

Forwards:
19 Hulak - 14 Bubnick - 8 Bortis
23 McCallum - 10 Bosch - 21 Bailey
25 Herrod - 11 Durand - 12 Kaye
15 Neigum - 17 Dulle - 24 Smuk

Scratches:
1 Reekie - 9 Spafford - 16 Ross
18 Thiessen - 20 Peddle - 26 Aschim
28 Carre - 32 Blanke

The Bisons now play back-to-back weekends in the Town of Bedrock, first to play Mount Royal and then to play Calgary, followed by a bye week. Their next home games are November 9-10 against the Lethbridge Pronghorns.

This was an historic first win in conference play for the Royal Kittens. It was also the first loss for the Evil Monkeys (in their first conference road game) after 11 wins (8 in exhibition games). This news has to sit well with the Bisons and Banjo-Mutts. The Kittens came out quickly and took a 2-1 lead after the first period, in which they outshot the Monkeys 11-8. Then it was "hang on for dear life" time. The Monkeys outshot them 28-10 over the final two periods, in which no goals were scored. The lesson should be that road wins are never easy in the CW.

I guess the weekend sweep gives the Banjo-Cats the undisputed featherweight title. While I have documented the poor performances of these two teams thus far, one has to give the toothless inbreds credit for a sweep on the road. This was not a fluke result. They outshot the H0rny Ones 44-26. Unless Lethbridge finds a whole lotta Viagra, this is going to be a long year for them. Matt Strueby and Troy Hunter got their 3rd goals of the season and Tyler Henry had his 3rd and 4th (into an empty net). So they are getting goals from the players who need to produce.

The Dinos had to be feeling the heat in this one. The Tweety-Birds won on Friday and a sweep in the Town of Bedrock would have made the Dinos' hopes of a first place finish become a page right of history. Jacob Deserres posted his first win in the Calgary goal. However, he gave up 4 goals on 19 shots. The Dinos dominated the stats, with 33 shots of their own. UBC held a 3-1 lead in the second period before the roof caved in on them. Calgary scored 6 of the last 7 goals, including 5 unanswered.

Without time to upload a preview post, there are a few extra links in this post. The Bisons played their first of four straight games in The Town of Bedrock (they visit the Dinos next weekend) and got off to a solid start.

Her Majesty's Royal Kittens kept the game scoreless until late in the 2nd period. But after 17 minutes, and despite being outshot 22-12, MRU opened the scoring.

However, the Bisons had a four-goal outburst in storage for the 3rd period. Luke Cain, Dane Crowley, Tyler Dittmer, and Matthew Lowry notched the goals. Jesse Deckert was once again defending the Bison goal.

The matinee rematch goes Saturday at 3:00 CDT and can be seen on-line at canadawest.tv.

And what is that Crowchild Classic link about? Well, the Town of Bedrock is copying Winnipeg's Duckworth Classic multi-sport competition between the Winnipeg Wesmen and Manitoba Bisons. They will count each game between all men's and women's teams in all sports.

The teams had one goal per period in this contest where the Banjo-Mutts prevailed over the Evil Monkeys. The Feces Throwers outshot the Feces Eaters 11-4 in the 2nd period, and 10-3 in the 3rd, yet lost it. Somewhat reminiscent of last weekend's loss to MRU. This series will also feature a Saturday afternoon matinee, and may be seen on canadawest.tv.

If there was one thing I thought was obvious, it was this: the Regina Cougars absolutely stink. Yet, they now have 4 wins and a share of first place. Of course, they have yet to play Manitoba, Alberta, or Saskatchewan in regular season play.

But this win cannot be discounted. The Banjo-Cats had a slight edge in shots for each of first two periods, and scored once in each of those. Calgary outshot them 10-7 in a 3rd period where the Bedrock Boys needed a comeback. So this was not a fluky win attributable to a hot goaltender and bad luck.

This win was #100 for Tweety-Birds' coach Milan Dragicevic, which is quite a milestone. BTW, I wonder when did he have his 100th loss? The H0rny Ones don't seem to have it this year.

The link about Bieksa's Buddies is about an exhibition game played this week between locked out players and the Tweety-Birds.
A cheque for $200,000 was presented to Canuck Place Children's Hospice, The Canucks Autism Network and The Canucks Family Education Centre before the opening faceoff. Half was raised through the game; the other half came through a matching donation from Vancouver musician Michael Buble.

“It was great,” said former Art Ross Trophy winner Daniel Sedin of the efforts to help the three groups, “and to see Michael Buble matching our $100,000 was awesome.”

“We're not playing hockey right now but we can still do a good job in the community and that is what the Vancouver Canucks are all about.”

MRU is kind of late posting their game stories, but they do make them available for the U of M and CW sites to post at least.

Anyhow, the Bisons pumped their Feline hosts for 3 unanswered 2nd period goals, in a period in which they outshot them 14-7. Jeremy Schappert and Jesse Paradis notched their first goals of the year, and Tyler Dittmer claimed his third.

A couple of 3rd period goals allowed MRU to pull close. Oddly, there were three "interference on the goaltender" penalties. The final one (by MRU) was accompanied by a pair of 10 minute misconducts and a game misconduct.

The scratches for the Bisons were goaltender Devan Dubyk, defencemen Brock Sutherland and Darren Bestland, and forwards Brendan Rowinski, Brett Chartier, Nathan Green, and Craig Scott. Jesse Deckert went the distance in the Bison net.

This was the other matinee on Saturday afternoon. Once again, the Evil Monkeys outshot the Banjo-Mutts but could not win. The Monkeys got off to a fast start but faster than you can say "have another banana" they have amassed a three game losing streak.

Ryan Holfield in the Sask goal stopped all 15 3rd period shots from the Primates in a goal-less period.

Looking at the last two weekends, Sask went 3-1 but would likely have considered themselves lucky to be 2-2.

The Dinos could ill afford another loss to the Banjo-Cats. IN the end they won this in what appears to have been a convincing fashion. Regina held a 1-0 lead after one period. But the Bedrock Boys scored two goals in each of the 2nd and 3rd periods to claim victory. The Dinos will be the Bisons' opponent next weekend.

The H0rny Ones tightened things up considerably in game 2 of the series but, in the end, all they got was a closer-than-usual loss. The frightening thing for them is that they have yet to face one of the traditional Big Three (Manitoba, Sask, and Alberta). Then again, neither has UBC. The forecast would have to be that UBC should finish somewhere near the middle and Lethbridge should finish somewhere near the bottom.

The Link Post has been updated by adding the Acadia fan site and updating all links to 2012-13 that had not previously been updated. It has every link you need to follow CIS hockey. If a link should be added, let me know and I will do so.

ImageImage
The Crowchild Classic is now reported at The Boxscore News. This is a multi-sport competition between Calgary's two universities. Also, the MRU link for Friday's game now has stories for both weekend games, rather than a separate link for each game.

ImageImage
A nice game story on Ryerson's debut v Queen's at the Mattamy Athletic Centre (the former Maple Leaf Gardens) is up at The CIS Blog. It is a nice story about both the game and the atmosphere.

Image
The AUS decision to cap rosters seems no more sensible to me today than it did when announced. It is further discussed at The Halifax Herald and The CIS Blog. Not much new in the stories. The AUS says it is for "cost cutting". I guess when you get down to 15 or 16 skaters for a road trip, you can save the expense of a room.

Also, The CIS Blog has a complete AUS Preview, which has arrivals, departures, and outlooks for every AUS team. Their forecast:
1 - UNB
2 - Acadia
3 - Moncton
4 - St. F-X
5 - St. Mary's
6 - UPEI
7 - St. Thomas
8 - Dalhousie

This weekend marks the beginning of the scheduling cross-over. Thus far, the league has had two groups playing a round-robin. The Bedrock Boys have been in with UBC, Regina, and Lethbridge. The Bisons were in with Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Mount Royal.

Calgary is of to a so-so start. They went 3-3 in pre-season, with all games against CW opponents. They swept Lethbridge (once in OT) then split with both UBC and Regina. Their lack of home webcasts makes it hard to tell just what they have to offer.

On the Bison side, this is their second trip in a row to Bedrock, after having played Mount Royal last weekend. I will be looking to see which scratches from last weekend might return to the line-up, and whether Jesse Deckert will again start both games in goal.

The Evil Monkeys absolutely have to break their 3 game losing streak against the H0rny Ones. In all three losses they have outshot their opponents by a wide margin. Well, Lethbridge is used to being severely outshot themselves. The conference contenders will do cartwheels if the Monkeys exit the weekend with less than 4 points.

Regina sports fans will look at this Cougars v Cougars match-up with all the fond remembrances of the Roughriders v Rough Riders games back in the day.

MRU has had a tough schedule so far, so I would not be concerned about their 1-5 start. The fact is they have put up a much better fight against good teams than Regina or Lethbridge did in the pre-season games.

But what about Regina? They looked absolutely dreadful in pre-season against the Bisons, and were also very badly outplayed against all other good teams. But they have split their games against UBC and Calgary. Have Regina improved? Did they get lucky? Or are Calgary and UBC not as close to Alberta, Sask., and Manitoba as we thought? This series will set the stage in the race for 6th place.

IMO the Banjo-Mutts have had horseshoes up every orifice so far. They needed a last-second goal to beat MRU to start and later racked up 3 wins against Manitoba and Alberta when they were outshot and fairly well dominated. But any way you slice it, this is a first place showdown. So long as neither games goes into overtime, everybody will be happy.

The Bisons racked up their third straight victory in the Town of Bedrock on Friday night. I would like to have a bit more information, and a complete set of links, but the home sides are slow in uploading game stories tonight. Those might be up as you read, so check the team sites.

The Herd led throughout the evening, taking a 1-0 lead on a goal by Jeremy Schappert (his 2nd) within 4 minutes of Oh Canada. Second period goals by James Henry and Brendan Rowinski gave the Bisons a 3-0 heading into the 3rd period. The Dinosaurs made Jesse Deckert's shutout go extinct mid-way through the 3rd period on a two-man advantage. Tyler Feakes got 2 minutes for roughing, which was coupled with a bench minor, so I gather there was controversy about the call. In any event, that was the only goal for the Dinos. Lee Christensen scored a couple minutes later to conclude the scoring.

The goals by Henry, Rowinski, and Christensen were their 1st of the season. Schappert, Blair Macaulay, and Ian Duval each had two assists.

Scratches for the Bisons were Brock Sutherland, Brett Chartier, Nathan Green, Craig Scott, Darren Bestland, Tyler Dittmer, and Deven Dubyk.

It would appear that Rowinski took Dittmer's place on the top line with Duval and Macaulay.

The rematch goes Saturday at 6:00 MDT, 7:00 CDT.

There was a delayed penalty and the H0rny Ones shot it into their own net. After that they went limp. They look awfully discouraged. Can they rally on home ice in the Saturday rematch? That is questionable.

The Banjo-Cats won the first ever Cat Fight. This was a tight game and a key win for the Hillbillies. They are now 3-0 against the teams with whom they expected to compete for the 6th and final playoff berth. Regina scored once in the 1st and 2nd periods before MRU made it close in the 3rd. If Regina can take the sweep on Saturday it would be getting difficult to see them being caught by MRU or Lethbridge. And, no, I don't see Regina challenging for 1st place.

This was an odd game. UBC scored twice to lead 2-0, then trailed 3-2. They rallied to take a 4-3 lead, only to lose 5-4. It is hard to glean to much from the stats. But the numbers would suggest this was a game of tremendous ebb and flow. UBC turned things around in the 2nd period when the outshot Sask 18-3 to stake themselves to a 4-3 lead heading into the 3rd period. But then the Banjo-Mutts dominated the 3rd period, with a 12-5 edge in shots. Oddly, the GWG was scored by Brennan Bosch shorthanded. One has to give UBC some chance in Saturday's rematch. They will have to win such games if they are to be seen as something better than a mid-pack team.

The Bisons built up a 2-0 3rd period lead on goals by Matthew Lowry (2nd) and Tyler Feakes (1st) but then surrendered the lead en route to a shoot-out loss. The result still gives the Bisons the series by a 3-2 margin in points, which is a respectable for a road trip to the Town of Bedrock. But when you are that close to a sweep ....

The Bisons also played short one man. Jesse Paradis played Friday but was scratched and not replaced for Saturday's game. This is a great example as to why the AUS is out to lunch with their roster limit of 21 skaters per season starting next year. Jesse Deckert once again started in the Bison goal while the Dinos replace Dustin Butler with Jacob DeSerres.

Both sides get next weekend off. Don't ask. For some reason the whole CW had an off-weekend (but for MRU and Alberta who moved their series from January 4-5), and that comes after they jump-started the league with a full slate of games September 27-29. Manitoba will the host Lethbridge and Calgary will play home-and-home with Alberta November 9-10.

This was once again the only contest available on CanadaWest.tv. Good lord, the H0rny Ones need help. Maybe time to try Cialis. Dylan Tait git the start in goal but gave up 5 goals on 20 shots before being pulled after 16 minutes. Damien Ketlo then surrendered 5 goals on 34 more shots. They look disheartened. They are also the Bisons' next opponent in two weeks' time. I am sure the Bisons would rather face them tomorrow, before they have time to regroup.

In Cat Fight II the Blue Kitties gained revenge over the Green Kitties. MRU notched 4 goals on 6 shots in the 1st period to chase Andrew Hayes from the Hillbilly net. This happened with MRU playing two men short as well. The way Lethbridge looks, it could be that the Kitties will be fighting for 6th place at the end of the year. Alberta will play home-and-home with MRU and Calgary over thext two weekends.

So, it looks like UBC is as they normally are. A sweep of Lethbridge, splits with Regina and Calgary, and a sweep at the hands of Sask. That list of results could have been from any one of the last 15 years. These teams also get a week off, after which UBC will face MRU and Sask will play Regina as aforesaid.

The Evil Monkeys scored twice per period en route to a handy win over the Royal Kittens. This is the only series in the CW for some reason. These teams evidently switched their series to this weekend from the beginning of January when the remainder of the teams will play their corresponding series. Since this series is being played out of synch with the rest of the schedule, this is the last series between these teams. Whilst MRU falls to 2-7, after this weekend they have only four games left against the top three teams (two against Sask and two against Manitoba).

The Vancouver Sun has an article touting UBC (amongst others) as a hockey alternative during the lockout.
On the UBC campus, T-Bird coach Milan Dragicevic has noticed a definite lockout boost, much of it due to the exposure the ‘Birds received from the Bieksa Buddies charity game Oct. 17. They played before a full house of 5,000 that night and, two days later, about 1,000 came back to see UBC’s home opener against the Lethbridge Pronghorns.

“Last year, we averaged close to 500 fans a game and this year we’re averaging close to 900 so it’s a pretty big increase and that’s very positive,” Dragicevic noted. “The Bieksa game helped a lot. It opened up people’s eyes to how good CIS hockey is and how good UBC hockey really is. All our guys were stars at the junior level, whether it was in the WHL, BCHL, or AJHL.

“So many people who come watch a game always say they want to come back,” added the UBC coach. “It’s just a matter of getting them to make that initial visit. We’ve definitely noticed we’re getting more exposure because of the Bieska Buddies game and the fact the Canucks are skating with us.”

You know you were out of it when ... Even if you scored on every shot you took in the 3rd period you still would have lost.

That's what happened to the Her Majesty's Kittens Saturday in Edmontown. The Evil Monkeys scored 5 goals in the first period, and only one more per period thereafter. MRU surrendered meekly, with only 4 shots in the 3nd period and 3 more in the 3rd.

Were MRU that bad, or the Monkeys that good? Well, next week the Monkeys play home-and-home with Calgary whilst MRU hosts UBC.

Finally, the Bisons have come back to the Max Bell. After back-to-back weekends in Calgary, they had a bye week. That's 3 weekends in a row without a home game. But this weekend marks the beginning of 3 home weekends out of 4 to wrap up the first semester.

If anything can temper my enthusiasm for these games, it is the fact that the H0rny Ones have been dreadful so far this year. And they seem to be getting worse. They started out being outplayed by Calgary, but forced overtime to escape with a point. That result has been followed by 7 consecutive losses in conference play, and 3 more non-conference losses on a horrid trip through the NCAA. Their leading scorer, Chase Schaber, has 3 goals and 6 assists in 8 games. Nobody else has more than 4 points.

What positives are there for the H0rny Ones? Well, if Viagra isn't working then maybe Cialis or Levitra could work. Or maybe all they needed was an extra week's rest.

The Bisons really need a four point weekend. They are one of 5 teams with 3 losses so far. Before the week off they seemed to be down in numbers, so I'll be interested to see just who dresses for the series.

This home-and-home series could tell us a lot about the Evil Monkeys. They started hot but then fell upon a 3 game losing streak. Then in the last two weekends they steamrolled Lethbridge and Mount Royal. The Dinos seem to be on their way to a traditional solid 4th place finish and will serve as an excellent measuring stick. The Primates have severely outshot their opponents even in their losses, which gives the impression that Calgary may have to "steal" whatever points they might be able to muster.

MRU's weak record is somewhat attributable to a tough schedule. They are 1-7 against the Big Three (1-3 v Alberta and 0-2 against each of Sask and Manitoba). Against those teams, UBC have thus far played only Sask and went 0-2. Their only other common opponent is Regina, and they both split. The question is whether MRU are feeling shell-shocked in their first season of CIS hockey.

The Battle of Banjoland will be a home-and-home series and features two possibly over-achieving teams. Sask is off to a good start and rank 1st in both the OHT35 rankings and the CIS official top ten. Good fortune smiled upon them when they wrangled a split against Manitoba, and even moreso when they swept the Monkeys. Is more good fortune coming their way?

But what about Regina? They were hopelessly outclassed in pre-season games against Manitoba and Sask. They have yet to face either of those teams, or Alberta. So their schedule has not been a tough one. However, they have split their series with UBC, Calgary. and MRU. And they swept Lethbridge.

The Bisons achieved a tidy victory on Friday night. The `Horns clearly utilized their bye week to regroup and recharge. In general they left the impression that they played as well as they could. Problem is, they were still outshot 39-22 and, but for a period of 3-4 minutes in the 2nd period, were dominated.

The Dittmer-Duval-Macaulay line scored three goals to pace the Bison attack. The line notched the only goal in the first period when Ian Duval scored after a period of sustained pressure and a pass from Tyler Dittmer.

Despite being outplayed, the H0rny Ones seemed to get a dose of momentum in the 2nd period when Hayden Rintoul scored a softy. Jesse Deckert seemed to take his eye off a bouncer, and suddenly it was 1-1. However, on a PP Bison captain Dane Crowley took a shot from the point which picked off the water bottle to put the Bisons in front to stay.

After Lethbridge had their moments the Bisons once again took control. Dittmer set up Blair Macaulay with a perfect pass and all Macaulay had to do was dump it into a wide-open net. That goal gave the Bisons a 3-1 lead heading into the 3rd period.

There was not much activity in the 3rd period. Whistles were few and far between and the Bisons appeared to like it that way. There was no scoring until there were less than 4 minutes to go.

The rematch goes Saturday night at 7:00 pm at the Max Bell Arena.

Here's how they lined up:

The Battle of Banjoland went to the Mutts over the Kittens, but not before it went into overtime. The Mutts enjoyed a generous lead on the shot clock. But there was no scoring until the 3rd period. The nightcap of the series shifts south to Regina on Saturday.

I caught the ending of this game on CanadaWest.tv. This was odd: There were only 5 minor penalties in the game but those produced 3 power play goals. The Dinos went 2-for-2 with the man advantage. It would appear that the Evil Monkeys held the edge throughout. The series shifts to Calgary for game 2 on Saturday.

This decisive win for UBC has to raise a few eyebrows. MRU really needs a win in Saturday's rematch if they want to stay at least close to a playoff spot. UBC started fast, outshooting MRU 10-4 whilst building a 2-0 lead after the 1st period. The 2nd period must have been wild, with UBC outscoring MRU 3-2 and outshooting them 16-15. Cole Wilson fired a hat-trick for the Tweety-Birds. Saturday night's rematch is the only game on CanadaWest.tv, but without play-by-play.

Saturday's game was very similar to Friday's. The Bisons dominated play (shots were 40-18) and could have really run up the score had they capitalized on their abundant chances. At no point in time did Lethbridge ever give the impression that they would even come close to winning the hockey game.

It is true that the H0rny Ones gave it all they had. They just lack talent to mount a threat. They played it quite chippy and by the last half of the game there were scrums after every whistle. After a bye week they were no doubt prepared for this series. As the season marches on I can easily see them being stomped.

Both sides switched goaltenders, the Bisons replaced Eric Mestery with Brock Sutherland, the `Horns juggled their 3rd and 4th lines, and otherwise the lineups were identical to Friday night.

The Bisons took a 2-0 lead 13 minutes into the 1st period. Jeremy Schappert scored (his 3rd) unassisted from along the boards immediately after a sustained scramble in fron of the Lethbridge net. A few minutes later Luke Cain cashed in (also his 3rd) on a wide-open net.

Tyler Dittmer scored (his 4th) only 9 seconds into the 2nd period, following which the game deteriorated with the pushing, shoving, and cheap shots coming in droves. And the puck seldom leaving the Lethbridge end of the rink.

A mini-comeback was launched 44 seconds into the 3rd period when Hayden Rintoul scored (his 3rd) on a crazy rebound off the glass behind the Bison goal. Thereafter, however, the 'Horns only had 3 more shots on goal. Each team had one more score. Ian Duval cashed in (his 3rd) on the best passing play of the night. Killian Hutt notched his 2nd of the season on a PP for Lethbridge's only orthodox goal of the weekend. Bison Matthew Lowry was snakebit, and even hit the post on an empty-net chance.

The Bisons are off to British California next weekend before coming home for their final two series of the semester, against Regina and Saudi Alberta. Lethbridge plays home-and-away with Mount Royal.

Here's how they lined up:

Normally when a contender loses to Regina they outshoot them by a wide margin but Regina's goaltender steals the show. However, the Banjo-Mutts had only 20 shots on the Banjo-Cats as the Felines clamped down on the Canines Saturday in Regina.

This win, IMO, makes it official that Regina is a mid-pack team in the CW. They looked gawd-awful in the pre-season, soundly beaten by Manitoba, Sask, and Alaska.

Lucas Gore was in goal for Regina, after Andrew Hayes played Friday. Ryan Holfield started again for Sask, as he has for every game this season. Last year he split games with David Reekie every weekend. Reekie is injured now.

Matt Strueby scored his 5thand Ryan Deck his 1st for the Cougars. Strueby, Tyler Henry, and Troy Hunter account for the vast majority of Regina's goals. D-man Zach Stebner had the Huskies' goal.

IMO, Sask's record is deceptive. They were badly outshot and outplayed in their split with Manitoba and sweep of Alberta. Had they lost those games they would be 5-5 and tied with Calgary for #5. But, wins are wins and so they (justifiably) entered the weekend ranked #1 in both the national CIS Official Top Ten and the OHT35.

The Evil Monkeys shut down the Dinos in the Town of Bedrock to sweep the home-and-home. But for a 3-game losing skid, the Monkeys have run the table thus far. It seems that the teams replayed Friday's game. Both sides shifted goaltenders, the Dinos using Dustin Butler Friday and Jacob DeSerres Saturday, and Alberta using Kurtis Mucha Friday and Real Cyr Saturday.

Next weekend Alberta is off to Regina and Calgary hosts Sask. IMO these games will help us gauge all four of those teams a little better.

This was a series Her Majesty's Royal Kittens could not afford to lose, but the did. They did outshoot UBC but that is small consolation. This puts MRU a distant 7th in league standings. They need something dramatic, like a sweep of Lethbridge next weekend, if they want back into the race.

UBC will host the Bisons next weekend. This is traditionally a tough road-trip for the Bisons.

The Herd is thundering off to British California this weekend, a place where they have underperformed in the not-so-distant past. The Tweety-Birds have been, as expected, a solid opponent thus far. At issue is whether they can finally break through into the upper echelons of the CW. While they don't look like a conference champion thus far, they certainly are capable of beating teams. The only teams UBC has yet to play this season are the Bisons and the Monkeys. So a week from Monday we will know all about what kind of team UBC has this year.

For the Bisons, will they split the goaltending duties? Joe Caligiuri had one game against Lethbridge last weekend, but Jesse Deckert had the other and has started 8 of the 10 regular season games thus far. I suspect that if the Macaulay-Duval-Dittmer unit is firing on all cylinders the Bisons could earn a sweep. I will also wonder if the #2 unit, Rowinski-Cowan-Lowry, can convert their good opportunites into goals.

The official CIS rankings have Alberta replacing Sask as #1. Now, I agree that Alberta is the better team. But Sask beat them, twice, already. So the OHT35 has Sask at #1 and Alberta at #3.

But will any of this scare the Banjo-Cats? These cute little kitties looked like they were begging to be euthanized at an over-crowded animal shelter when I saw them in pre-season. In the pre-season coaches' poll they were a consensus #8 in the CW. Once the regular season started these guys found another gear. They have split with Sask, Calgary, UBC, and MRU, and swept Lethbridge. They started the season playing mostly the bottom half of the conference, but last weekend the then #1 Banjo-Mutts had to fight for a split.

The Evil Monkeys have, incredibly, already played 20 games. They lost 3 straight, and in all of those outshot their opponent by a wide margin. If anybody can set the Puddy-Tats back in their place, it is the Primates. Can they succeed where Sask failed? This series will tell us a lot.

The New Kittens on the Block have been off to a rough start. However, they have been able to say, "just look at our schedule". They have played 4 games against Alberta and 2 each against Manitoba and Sask. Winning one of those 8 games is not so bad. But last weekend's sweep at the hands of UBC, coupled with an earlier split against Regina, leaves them in a desperate state as they visit Lethbridge.

After a Viagra-less start, the H0rny Ones seemed to have some vigour when they visited Manitoba last weekend after a bye week. Unfortunately, vigour does not substitute for talent. Can Lethbridge use last weekend as a stepping-stone? This weekend has a "last-chance" feel to it, even this early in the season.

Whilst Sask holds the #1 place in the OHT35, they are on somewhat wobbly ground. Their top line is one of the best, but after that not so much. They are lucky to be hosting the Nationals this year and get the host team berth for that reason.

Calgary is, as always, a solid opponent. Especially on home ice. The Bisons escaped the Town of Bedrock with 3 points, and Sask would glady take such a result for themselves. The rest of the league has but one request: To have only 4 points allocated over the weekend. After they went to triple overtime in game 3 of last year's championship series, one always has to be concerned about overtime and 3 point games.

The Bisons and 'Birds played this one tight to the vest. Each side scored once in the 1st period and then nothing at all until the 2nd overtime was almost ready to give way to a shoot-out. While the Bisons cannot be happy about the sweep, they at least escape with a point. With the first trip around the league coming to a conclusion next weekend, there exists a very tight race for places 2-6.

Of note, Joe Caligiuri was the Bison goaltender, Dylan Kelly scored his first goal as a Bison, Austin Lauder did not dress and the Bisons played one man short, and the Macauly-Duval-Dittmer line was 0-for-11 in shots on goal.

The New Kittens on the Block needed a win (actually, the same can be said for the H0rny Ones). Anyhow, this split was likely warranted and also denies both sides the sweep they needed to get in the same time zone as a playoff race. Lethbridge took a 1-0 lead after the 1st period. But Mount Royal amassed 36 shots over the 2nd and 3rd periods and pulled into a draw. On the night the shots were 52-31 for MRU, a rather incredible total. Here's an interesting quip:
Prior to Saturday’s game Mount Royal University honoured their military history with an on-ice ceremony. The Cougars also wore throw-back jerseys that had poppies emblazoned on the front.

The school’s campus is built on the former site of the Number 3 Flying Training School for pilots. Since the institution’s founding in 1910, 28 members of the Mount Royal community have given their lives while serving Canada. The school remembers those service people with 28 military memorial bursaries, each in the name of a fallen soldier.

After the Banjo-Cats threw a scare into the Evil Monkeys on Friday night, the rematch was more according to script. Still, the shots were 37-28, not the one-sided butt-kicking we might have seen in the pre-season had these two played. Torrie Dyck scored a hat-trick for the Apes (giving him 9 on the year).

These teams will be the Bisons opponents the next two weekends, the last games the Bisons will have this semester, and both at home.

After an 8-0 drubbing on Friday, one has to give the Banjo-Mutts credit for rallying their troops and, in the end, escaping with a split.

Calgary seemed to pick up where they left off, leading 2-0 after the 1st period and outshooting their Hillbilly guests 18-6 in the process. What makes the Sask rally more remarkable is that they scored 5 goals on only 17 shots over the 2nd and 3rd periods. Dustin Butler was back in Calgary's goal while Ryan Holfeld was yet again in the Doghouse.
