Sept. 7: Monkeys sweep Dinos

As with game 1, all we have is a list of scorers from the Monkeys' site: Brett Ferguson, Torrie Dyck and Thomas Carr. So now the records of the three teams to see action so far are:
Alberta 3-0-0
Manitoba 2-1-1
Calgary 0-2-0

There was also a piece in the Edmontown Examiner on new Monkey goaltender Luke Siemens. Although he has great credentials, it is hard to see him improving the Monkey goaltending. Kurtis Mucha stole games for them last year, including one memorable night in Manitoba.

Image Image
There is no announcement yet from Sask on their recruits. However, we get word from Fort Mac that one of the Keyano Huskies' goaltenders is shifting to another pack of mutts. Matthew Smidt is shifting from remote Alberta to the Spitoon. BTW, Sask's site really sucks.

I also came across a piece on Yahoo about the CIS's improved exposure in general. Cited are:
1. CIS TV Deal with Sportsnet.
2. Sportsnet 360 Web Coverage (see http://www.sportsnet.ca/cis/).
3. Investment in free, live streaming.
4. Partnerships with community teams (an example is the Bisons-Bombers).
5. Brand Power.

I will have to see how Sportsnet's CIS page covers hockey this year. Right now the football coverage looks pretty good.

This used to be an annual fixture so it is good to see it back. And the Monkeys beat the Greasers, so score one for the CIS. Then again, it was ONLY the Greasers. BTW, the Greasers only had 2 shots on goal in the 3rd period. The Mobnkeys are throwing feces in celebration as they are now 4-0-0 in the exhibition season.

Regina was supposed to travel to Weyburn to face the Red Wings on Sept. 10. However, there is nothing about the game on either the U of R or Weyburn sites. Weyburn's Twitter reminded of the game at 12:58 pm. It was listed on the SJHL LeagueStat games, but none of those have scores or links. My assumption? Banjoland ran out of electricity. But Regina is hosting 6 of 8 CW teams this weekend. That would be nice to see. I would love tio sit through 3 hockey games per day.

The Bisons are off to Regina where they will not play the Cougars, nor any team from Banjoland. Instead they will face two teams from Saudi Alberta (Bedrock and the Evil Monkeys) on neutral ice. The Banjo-Mutts and H0rny Ones will also be there. The weekend schedule is:

Friday, Sept. 13
2:00 – Regina vs. Saskatchewan
5:00 – Alberta vs. Lethbridge
8:00 – Calgary vs. Manitoba

Saturday, Sept. 14
12:00 – Regina vs. Lethbridge
3:00 – Alberta vs. Manitoba
6:00 – Calgary vs. Saskatchewan

Sunday, Sept. 15
10:30 – Regina vs. Alberta
1:30 – Calgary vs. Lethbridge

There is not much in pre-event information to share at this point. The U of M site, since being re-minted, has no updates and in fact has lost the story on Macaulay turning pro and the scores from their European tour.

This makes it time for an annual rant: Why don't CIS teams get their websites going in advance of the pre-season? Should they not have training camp rosters available? Could they not have even a small story on the opening weekend? This would be an easy first step towards getting media coverage in their local marketplaces.

Here's where the websites stand:

Manitoba - The roster page has deleted all 5th year players from last year. It still includes last year's 3rd and 4th years who graduated and does not include any new recruits. Before the website was "modernized" the schedule page had the scores from the European tour. Those have been removed and they have not even added a story on the tour. The roster page does tell us that Tyler Dittmer is now a conditioning coach, along with Riley Dudar.

Alberta - The schedule page has a link to a linescore of each game so far, and a story on the Oiler game. Their roster page is not available yet.

Calgary and Lethbridge - The schedule pages are updated but are without links (which may change this weekend. The roster pages are 2012-13.

Regina - They have their 2013-14 roster looking complete. They have 8 defencemen listed, which after being short-handed last year will be a luxury. The schedule page deleted a previously scheduled game with Weyburn but appears up-to-date.

Saskatchewan - I do not know what their site is doing. When you go there you get all their players' dopey faces but no actual site. So who knows. They must be wiping their butts on the carpet again.

This was the first CIS exhibition game of the season outside of those involving CW teams. The McGilligutties led 6-2 at one time, and had a massive edge on the shot clock as well. But the Bees scrambled back to make the score respectable, at least.

Fun fact: The Bees have two players named "Hugo". Can any other hockey team make that claim?

At least the Monkeys' site has a linescore, even if all it does is tell us who scored the Monkey goals. Could be a rough year for the H0rny Ones. Maybe the fact that the Monkeys got an early start gives them an edge over the `Horns. We'll see.

Thanks to Gilligan at CISfootball.org we have confirmation that this game was actually played! I do have to wonder why the team websites never had anything on it, though. It was played on September 10th.
Nick Clark started in goal for Weyburn, and allowed 3 goals on 22 shots through half the game. Veteran, Nate Ferris then took over, but Regina kept coming. The boys really had to compete for puck possession, as the final shots ended up being 46-14 in favour of Regina. Last night was also a good opportunity to shake off the summer dust, and get reacquainted with physical play.

As usual we get a list of Evil Monkey goal scorers from the U of A linescore: Jesse Craige, Levko Koper, Torrie Dyck and James Dobrowolski, all returning to the zoo and clearly throwing feces already. So the Monkeys are 2-0-0 and the Herd 0-2-0 on the weekend.

The Regina results page was not updated on Saturday. The CW linked page has scores only.

The "new and improved" Bison website is taking its sweet time getting up and running. The schedule link has the scores for last week, but no links. The roster has 2012-13 players, less the 5th years. And even the story on Macaulay going pro has not been added.

To top it all off, the games are at 2:00 because the Bummers play the Igloo Dwellers in a CFL game on Friday. Could they not move that to Sunday afternoon where it belongs and would not get in the way of campus Friday night activity? IMO the U if M should be firm on there being no Friday or Saturday night games once CIS sports start.

This was a matinee and I was able to leave work about 15 minutes before it started. The game must have had almost no stoppage time because I arrived with under 6 minutes left in the 1st period. And it was already 3-0 for the Bisons.

Since the website has no current roster, here's the line-up:

Goal:
1 Joe Caligiuri (34 Deven Dubyk)

Defence:
3 Pierre Landry - 4 Jeremy Schappert
12 Brock Sutherland - 24 Travis Bobbee
5 Lee Christensen - 22 Darren Bestland

Forwards:
21 Taylor Dickin - 19 Ian Duval - 6 Luke Paulsen
29 Luke Cain - 18 Dylan Kelly - 25 Paul Ciarelli
20 Aaron Lewadniuk - 15 Craig Scott - 16 Jesse Paradis

10 Brendan Rowinski F
17 Austin Lauder F
27 Jordan DePape F
28 Reid McLeod F
35 Joey Rewucki G

Regina's Line-up:

Goal:
1 Mitch Kilgore (35 Lucas Gore)

Defence:
4 John Sonntag - 2 Ryan Dech
24 Ward Szucki - 5 Jordan Reeve
7 Mark Schneider - 6 Steven Turner
19 Sanfred King

Forwards:
20 Ryan Sawka - 10 Tyler Henry - 22 Troy Hunter
25 Cody Fowlie - 14 Craig Cuthbert - 11 Christian Magnus
13 Brock Appleyard - 12 Liam Brennan - 17 Carter Selinger
16 Brayden Nargang - 29 Tanner Lange - 21 Skylar Hladun

Scratches:
8 Austin Bourhis D
9 Tyler Penny F
15 Tyler Murray F
18 Brody Luhning D
28 John Neibrandt D
30 Andrew Hayes G

Going over the Bison roster, there were some previously unannounced arrivals and departures. Some names popped up from the European tour.

Arrivals:

3. Pierre Landry - defence - Briercrest Clippers - EP Stats
- He played just one year at Briercrest after having played in the MJHL, mostly with Waywayseecappo. Although he scored the opening goal, he is mostly a defensive type. They have only 8 d-men on the roster so I assume he will be kept in a back-up role for the 6 veterans they have.

8. Jory Coates - forward - Pembina Valley Twisters - EP Stats
- It is not often that grads of the MMJHL get a look for the Bisons. A few years back two goaltenders were vying for the role of 3rd string goaltender. But this 6'6" late bloomer could be a catch, especially if he sticks it out for 5 years and keeps improving. When he graduated from Midget he played two seasons bouncing between the Neepawa Natives of the MJHL and the Twisters of the MMJHL. In 2011-12 he stuck it out with the Twisters and scored 3 goals in 40 games, and none in 6 playoff games. But last year he caught fire as the season wore on. With 24 goals in 45 games then had 13 in 17 playoff games as he led the Twisters to a surprise championship.

9. Andrew Dunsmore - forward - St. Vital Victorias - EP Stats
- He is another MMJHL grad and has not played since 2010-11. He never scored in 33 MMJHL games spread over 2 seasons. The question is whether they'll keep all 15 forwards around.

26. Justin Dalebozik - forward - Steinbach Pistons - EP Stats
- He was acquired by the Pistons mid-way through last season and was a factor in them going from below average to a shocking provincial championship. The question is whether he can contribute some goals.

28. Reid MacLeod - forward - Sacred Heart University - EP Stats
- He played for the Stonewall Flyers senior league team as he red-shirted last year. He peaked as a junior in 2007-08 when he scored 47 goals in 57 games for the Flin Flon Bombers. But the next year he plummeted to 13 goals in 49 games playing for the same team. In 3 seasons at Sacred Heart he had 8 goals in 53 games. Could he regain his scoring touch? He did have 19 goals in 19 senior league games last year.

Departures:

3. Eric Mestery - The former 2nd round draft choice of the Washington Capitals appears to have left hockey again. He retired in 2010 when still a junior in the WHL before making a brief comeback with the Selkirk Steelers in 2011, and then another with the Bisons last year.

6. Brodie Melnychuk - The former Wheatie was a Christmas newcomer who stabilized the defence last year. He does not appear to be involved in organized hockey this year.

Back to the game at hand, since the game was in the afternoon the only fans there were people playing hookey. It very much had the feel of an exhibition game for that reason.

On the down side, Ian Duval was injured late in the 2nd period on a knee clip. Hopefully he will be available for the start of the season.

In general, the Kittens rarely generated sustained pressure. One goal was a deflection of a point shot, one a breakaway which arose from an ill-conceived line change by a d-man, and one point shot that Caligiuri would like to have back.

The Bisons will be challenged to score this year. They have lost Blair Macaulay, Tyler Dittmer, Matthew Lowry, Del Cowan, and James Henry. One factor, though, is that returning players often improve. Craig Scott, Jesse Paradis, and Dylan Kelly are now 2nd year players and all seemed to be more effective and had strong games. Paradis was the only one of those to get regular ice time last year, in fact Scott was usually a scratch. Paradis was the 2nd star. Kelly was used on both the PK and PP.

One surprise was that newcomer Luke Paulsen, recruited as a defenceman, was used as a forward. And he was so effective that he was named 1st star.

Rematch goes Saturday at 2:00 p.m. at the Max Bell Arena.

REGINA COUGARS 1
MANITOBA BISONS 4

:. [U of M Boxscore] :. [LeagueStat Summary]


It was tough spending a sunny Saturday afternoon indoors watching a hockey game. I would have much preferred the traditional Saturday night game, but there you go. Also, this year's Saturday games are going to be at 6:00 p.m. so I need to get used to this. I personally dislike the 6:00 p.m. start time. The Goldeyes have done it for 2 years now. It is hard to get your Saturday afternoon done that 1 hour earlier. I digress.

The Bisons went with the same line-up as Friday, except that Ian Duval was not dressed and Joe Caligiuri had the day off. Here's the alignment:

Goal:
34 Dubyk (2 periods) - 35 Rewucki (1 period)

Defence:
5 Christensen - 4 Schappert
12 Sutherland - 24 Bobbee
3 Landry - 22 Bestland

Forwards:
29 Cain - 25 Ciarelli - 21 Dickin
6 Paulsen - 16 Paradis
8 Coates - 18 Kelly - 15 Scott
20 Lewadniuk - 28 Dalebozik - 9 Dunsmore

Scratches:
1 Caligiuri G / 2 Crowley D / 10 Rowinski F
17 Lauder F / 19 Duval F / 27 DePape F
28 McLeod F

NOTES; The line-up card listed Dalebozik as #26 but LeagueStat had him as #28, so I'll go with that. Paulsen centered a line and the wing spot was usually either Lewadniuk or Scott.

Regina's Line-up:

Goal:
35 Gore (1 Kilgore)

Defence:
4 Sonntag - 5 Reeve
24 Szucki - 7 Schneider
8 Bourhis - 2 Dech
19 Luhning

Forwards:
20 Sawka - 10 Henry - 22 Hunter
25 Fowlie - 14 Cuthbert - 11 Magnus
13 Appleyard - 12 Brennan - 6 Turner
16 Nargang - 29 Lange - 21 Hladun

Scratches:
9 Penny F / 15 Murray F / 17 Selinger F
19 King F / 28 Neibrandt D / 30 Hayes G

NOTES: Although the line-up card listed Sanfred King as #19, LeagueStat named Brody Luhning as #19 instead of #18. IAE I never noticed #19 on Saturday. As with Friday Magnus switched from #23 to #11 and Fowlie switched from #27 to #25. The only switch was #8 for #17, with #6 switching from D to F.

Going into the season my concern was with scoring. However, with 10 goals in 2 games maybe that ought not to be a concern. Perhaps injuries are the bigger concern. Other than the goaltender switch, the Bisons never dressed any of Friday's scratches. Even though Duval was sidelined they played with a 19 man roster rather than activate a player from the sub list.

Last year I saw enough of the Feline Hillbillies to get sick of them. They came here in pre-season, regular season, and playoffs for a weekend double-header. They looked like crap in all 6 games. While they have not made any earth-shattering additions, they have added bona fide defencemen. Last year they had forwards forced to drop back. This year they are tougher to play against, although they remain several notches below the Bisons in calibre.

However, Regina over-achieved something fierce last year. I was constantly shocked to look at the out-of-town scoreboard and see them pick up points here and there such that they left the New-Kittens-on-the-Block and the H0rny Ones in the dust.

Even though the Bisons did not trash the Cats like last year, they did ring up two convincing wins. The defence, even without Captain Crowley, limited them to mostly low quality shots from the perimeter.

Here's how it went. The Bisons got off to a quick 2-0 lead, with goals by newcomers Aaron Lewadniuk and Taylor Dickin within the first 3 minutes. Lewadniuk's goal was a conversion of a nice passing play. Dickin's was a solo effort after he was tripped on a delayed penalty call. Once ahead the Bisons seldom made any venturous offensive plays.

The intermission appeared to get the Bisons re-charged. Although the 2nd period was scoreless, the Bisons had dozens of nice passing plays which generated quality shots on goal. Each line was quite effective in that regard. Despite the lack of goals, the Bisons generated their most sustained offence in this period.

The 3rd period was much like the first. The Bisons scored two early goals within 3 something. Paul Ciarelli and Jesse Paradis converted passing plays. Then the Bisons went into a shell, playing very conservatively and generating few shots. There was also a steady flow of penalties which never helps a game to flow.

Regina's only goal was from d-man Mark Schneider during a 2-man advantage mid-way through the 3rd. The screen shot elluded Joey Rewucki, a rookie goaltender coming from the Selkirk Steelers. He made 14 saves in the period. Starting goaltender Deven Dubyk made 19 saves over two periods. They both looked sharp and would appear to be good backups for Caligiuri.

The three stars were Dickin, Lewadniuk, and Dubyk. Clearly, it was a good day for the new blood.

The Bisons are now 4-3-1 in the pre-season, and Regina is a respectable 3-3-0.

Next up for the Bisons is a home doubleheader against the Toronto Varsity Blues on homecoming weekend. Saturday's game goes at 7:00 (well after the Bison football game) and Sunday goes at 1:00.

Could MUN get a hockey team? It would appear unlikely:
“I probably get asked about three times a year, ‘Why doesn’t MUN have a hockey team?’,” said Healey. “We’re not getting asked that 300 times. We have had a number of consultation sessions [...] and there isn’t a public outcry for the need of a hockey team at MUN. So, I’m not really sure whether it’s a possibility or not. It is something that we certainly like to look at. I’d be the first in line to say I’d be a number one fan of a MUN hockey team. But, if you do the math on it—to run a competitive men’s hockey program and maybe offer gender contemplative women’s program, you wouldn’t be far off from a million dollars to try and make that happen.”

Sept. 22: Out-of-Town Scoreboard

Post by Hollywood2 » Mon Sep 23, 2013 7:13 pm

UPEI PANTHERS 1
OTTAWA GEEGEES 3

Link: [UPEI Story]

This game was played Saturday in UQTR's tournament. Both teams won on Friday, so this win gave Ottawa the title. Based on last year's performances that stands as quite a surprise. Final standings: Ottawa 1st, PEI 2nd, Moncton 3rd, and UQTR 4th.

ACADIA AXEMEN 4
SAINT MARY'S HUSKIES 4


DALHOUSIE TIGERS 4
ST. FRANCIS-XAVIER X-MEN 3

(in overtime)
Link: [Acadia Story - covering both games]

This was Day 2 of the tournament. The 3rd place game between the Cajuns and SMUskies was called due to an injury. Dal-Lousy took the title with an OT win, in what must also be considered a surprise. You know what else would be a surprise? If the CIS finishes their investigation into Dal's financial irregularities before **** freezes over.

NIPISSING LAKERS 3
LAURENTIAN VOYAGEURS 7

Laurentian made their debut with a convincing win over their Northern Ontario rivals. All I could find was the score from the LU Twitter. Both sides have new logos.

Weekend Preview: Bisons Got the Blahs

There are no new links at GoBisons.ca. It seems that new content was sacrificed when they updated the web page. However, once the games begin there should be live updates at LeagueStat, as happened last weekend.

The first thing I will want to check is the number of players available to the Bisons. Last weekend, once Ian Duval was injured on Friday, they played one short on Saturday.

This is the last weekend of play before the regular season starts next weekend with a home series against the Evil Monkeys. Are the Bisons ready for the challenge?

The Blahs were once the dominant team in the CIS, back when Tom Watt was their coach. Back then a player could stay on the team for 8-9 years if they were getting a PhD. In recent decades they have become very average. Last season they went 15-15-8 overall, and were 24th in the OHT35. This is how I broke down their season:

Code: Select all

v OUA-x`````` 1-2-0
v AUS-x`````` 0-2-0
v NCAA-x````` 0-2-0
Exhibition````````````` 1-6-0
v A`````````` 0-3-1
v B`````````` 2-3-3
v C````````` 11-3-2
Conference```````````` 13-9-6
v B`````````` 1-0-2
Playoffs``````````````` 1-0-2
Total````````````````` 15-15-8  B
The Blahs had the weakest schedule in the CIS with 16 games against C teams. They did, however, manage to have a good series against Ottawa where they were eliminated with two OTLs. This team could benefit from a tougher schedule next year. To their credit, they did have non-conference games against Acadia and SMU.[/quote] Is a trip out west their idea of seeking a tougher schedule?

What I would like to see from the Bisons is a return to the line-up from the players scratched last weekend:
2 Dane Crowley D
10 Brendan Rowinski F
17 Austin Lauder F
27 Jordan DePape F
28 Reid McLeod F

Those players, with Ian Duval, would significantly raise the level of the team.

It is funny that neither team from Banjoland will be in action this weekend. It must be in commemoration of St. Cletus Day. (He's the one who brought the first outhouse to Saskatchewan!)

ALBERTA GOLDEN BEARS (0-0-0, 9-0-0) at
CALGARY DINOSAURS (0-0-0, 3-4-1)


The Monkeys swept the Bedrock Boys in a pair of exhibition games earlier on this year. These two games will give them 11 pre-season exhibition games, which must be some sort of a record. Can they sweep? The Friday game will be played in the Town of Bedrock and Saturday's rematch will be in St. Albert.

LETHBRIDGE PRONGHORNS (0-0-0, 0-3-0) at

These teams will play just the once this weekend. Last year's bottom two teams have started winless through 5 combined losses. Not a good sign.

SIMON FRASER CLAN (BCIHL: 0-0-0, 2-1-0) at
UBC THUNDERBIRDS (0-0-0, 0-0-0)


The Clown have so far played three games. They beat Trinity Western and then split 2 games against ACAC teams, losing to SAIT 5-3 and beating the new team from Red Deer 3-2 in OT. The Tweety-Birds have yet to play. The Clown really get up for these games. Still, they always get outshot by a large margin and pray they have a hot goaltender. The teams have played 4 games over the last 2 years. In 2011 each team won a game by a 3-1 score. In 2012 UBC won 8-0 and 4-3.

Sept. 27: Out of Town Scoreboard

Post by Hollywood2 » Fri Sep 27, 2013 11:34 pm

Since the Bisons are playing a Saturday-Sunday doubleheader this weekend, Friday night is devoted to the Out-of-Town Scoreboard.

Image Image
LETHBRIDGE PRONGHORNS 2
MOUNT ROYAL COUGARS 5

Link: [LS Summary]

The New-Kittens-on-the-Block entered the win column to avoid being shut-out in the pre-season. The H0rny Ones need to be concerned. After last year's debacle they are already 0-4-0. The Kittens built a 4-0 lead before the Viagra kicked in. But it was too little, too late. The closest they git was 4-2, despite outshooting MRU 14-4 in the 3rd period.

Lethbridge takes their 0-4-0 record to the States next weekend to play Minnesota and Minnesota State. Meanwhile, the Kittens are done, having played only 3 pre-season games. They open next weekend at home against Sask.

Image Image
SIMON FRASER CLAN 2
UBC THUNDERBIRDS 6

Link: [LS Summary]

The Tweety-Birds took game one of the double-header in convincing fashion. It is nice that they play at least one BCIHL team, but one would think they would be better off facing some better opposition. Next weekend they go way up north to face the two Alaskan sides, and that's it for their pre-season.

Image Image
ALBERTA GOLDEN BEARS 2
CALGARY DINOSAURS 3

Link: [U of C Story]

The Evil Monkeys have finally tasted defeat. The Dinos gave the fans in Bedrock something to cheer about with a win over their nemesis. It took 3 tries, but what the heck. The rematch goes Saturday in St. Albert. Next weekend the Monkeys are in Manitoba and the Bedrock Boys have been sentenced to a weekend in Regina as both sides open the regular season.

Sept. 28: Blahs Ride Goaltender to Win

Post by Hollywood2 » Sun Sep 29, 2013 2:46 pm

TORONTO VARSITY BLUES 4
MANITOBA BISONS 1


Links:
:. [U of M Hockey Site (nothing posted yet)] :. [Bison Twitter]


I got to this game about 5 minutes in, as I waas trying to finish watching football first. There must have been more fans than they expected because they ran out of game sheets. I managed to grab an abandoned one in the 3rd period. Which is fortunate because for some reason they never uploaded data from this game to League Stat, as they did last weekend against Regina.

I did load the player numbers for the loine combos into my phone, and this is what they were:

Bisons:
Goal:

1 Caligiuri (35 Rewucki)

Defence:
5 Christensen - 4 Schappert
12 Sutherland - 24 Bobbee
3 Landry - 22 Bestland

Forwards:
21 Dickin - 25 Ciarelli - 29 Cain
16 Paradis - 6 Paulsen - 20 Lewadniuk
15 Scott - 18 Kelly - 27 DePape
8 Coates - 10 Rowinski - 28 Dalebozik

Scratches:
2 Crowley D / 17 Lauder F
19 Duval F / 34 Dubyk G

NOTES; MacLeod and Dunsmore were not on th eline-up card so I assume they have been cut.

Toronto:
Goal:

29 Willows G

Defence:
2 Turcotte - 6 Jackson
21 Werbowski - 26 Connell
3 Bernier - 24 Heide

Forwards:
17 Doyle - 22 Markovic - 25 Englebrechten
18 Luikkonen - 9 Boddy - 19 Brown
15 Klomp - 16 Van de Velde - 27 Cleverley
12 Valente - 23 Turner - 28 Deagle

Scratches:
4 Yolevski D / 5 Oakley D / 7 Halloran D
11 Knight RW / 20 Harris RW
30 Nishi G / 35 Sheehan G

NOTES: I am not sure who dressed as the backup goaltender.

Since no stats have been posted, this is an unofficial summary:

2nd 00:26 Manitoba: Dickin (Schappert)
3rd 02:00 Toronto: Deagle (Markovic) SH
3rd 04:50 Toronto: Cleverley (Klomp)
3rd 18:52 Toronto: Cleverley (Heide) EN
3rd 19:57 Toronto: ? PP

Shots on goal:
Manitoba ...... 14 16 13 - 43
Toronto ....... 7 5 8 - 20

As you may infer from the shots on goal, this was a very one-sided game. If the teams repeat their performance on Sunday afternoon, the Bisons will probably win 6-2. Blues' goaltender Brett Willows made at least a half dozen spectacular saves, and had some goalpost and cross bar assistance, to keep the Blues close. It was tough for Caligiuri. The Bisons were seemingly on pace for a routine win when a loose puck on a PP led to a 2-on-1 break and a game-tieing goal for the Blues. The second goal, he would like to have over. It was an unscreened shot from the top of the left face-off circle.

As you can tell from the scratches, Captain Crowley and Ian Duval did not suit up for the Herd. Hopefully they will be ready for the Evil Monkeys next weekend.

OUT OF TOWN SCOREBOARD

I am off to watch the rematch, so I'll update the out of town scoreboard after the game.
