On paper, this stands to be a good matchup. A year ago the Mutts closed strong to claim 3rd place in the CW, whilst the Bisons rallied to claim 4th. In the playoffs, though, UBC sent the Mutts to the doghouse and the Bisons beat MRU before being eliminated in OT by Bedrock U.

Sask had a so-so pre-season. They beat the Banjo-Cats and H0rny Ones, had OTLs against Alberta and Manitoba, and lost to Calgary. They have started 4-0-0 against Regina and UBC. However they could have lost 3 of those games if not for superlative goaltending. 5th year Ryan Holfeld (.983) and rookie Jordon Cooke (.971) have each had two teriffic starts and one shut-out.

The Bisons have blended into their line-up a host of new players and so far, so good. They dominated Regina, whereas Sask was outshot (twice) by their banjo-luvin brethren. In their only CW roadtrip so far, though, the Bisons were swept by Bedrock U. Could they improve on that this time? Well, the Bisons have done better in the Rutherdump than they used to. The Mutts of old had big teams, but lately the Bisons have been bigger. And that is key in a compact relic like the Rutherdump. Assuming, of course, it is not condemned before they drop the puck!

Lethbridge appeared more life-like than last season in the pre-season games. However they still lost every game they played against CW teams. I fully expect the H0rny Ones to rebound fron the pounding they took against the Evil Monkeys last weekend and put forth at least one good outing against Bedrock U. The Dinos will be feeling some heat after being swept by MRU last weekend. Only a sweep here would satisfy them. This is a home-and-home format.

There are two linked stories on Jordan DePape. He was named U of M maleathlete of the week. The Manitoban story talks about the shoulder injuries that damaged his junior career and his appearance at Jets rookie camp in 2011.

The New-Kittens-on-the-Block are the surprise team so far. However, in pre-season they had only one game against a CW team (Bedrock U) and their first series was against Lethbridge. Their sweep of Bedrock U is worth a lot, even though they often save their best performances for their cross-town rivals.

So where does this leave us? This is a series where MRU could show what they are made of. They were just ahead of UBC last year, and UBC have had a reasonable start in their own right. I strongly suspect a split.

This series is not listed at CanadaWest.tv. However, there is a "video" link in UBC's linked preview story. While the link goes to a Stretch Internet site it has a special UBC url. So check the above link on the chance it is carried.

The Monkeys are getting their soft touches all in one bunch, just like some nice ripe bananas. Regina never showed much last weekend against the Bisons, although they did put in a spirited fight in their prior series against Sask. The Kittens have only played one home game so far. Maybe some home-made possum shanks will get them going.

Interesting factoid about the Monkeys: Excluding games against Regina and Lethbridge they are 4-4-0 so far, and two of those wins were in OT. Yet they are ranked #1 in the CIS poll!

How does one make a trip to a backwoods outpost like Saskatown enjoyable? By laying a good ol' whuppin' on their mangy hockey team, that's how. And that's exactly what the Bisons did on Friday night.

The Mutts got off to a 1-0 lead in a 1st period where they held a 12-5 edge on the shot clock. The moonshine was a-flowin' and the shoeless fans were a square-dancin' until a last-minute goal by Aaron Lewadniuk (his 3rd) evened the scores.

The Bisons assumed control of the game and silenced the banjos in a 2nd period where they scored twice. D-man Luke Paulsen (with his 1st) and Shaq Merasty notched his 3rd in the period.

There was no 3rd period rally in sight for the Mangy Ones. Paulsen scored his second of the game to widen the lead and leave the Mutts whimpering at the back door.

Devan Dubyk once again started in the Bison goal whilst Ryan Holfeld had his usual Friday night start for the Mutts. After giving up 6 goals in his first start, Dubyk now has a 2.00 GAA and a .922 save %.

Of note, the Lewadniuk-Robinson-Merasty line was out for all 4 Bison goals. (Although Paradis was with them on one occasion.)

The result helped tighten the CW standings, and draws the Bisons (3-2-0) within 2 points of Sask, MRU, and Alberta, joint leaders at 4-1-0.

In a roster note, Darren Bestland was listed as #22 for the Bisons. Dustin Bruyere (#22 last weekend) wore #29. So that's one more vet on the blueline.

The CanadaWest.tv feed for this one was not coming through, although the Regina and UBC feeds were up and running. Hopefully, the Saturday night rematch (8:00 CDT) will be available.

The H0rny Ones ventured into the Town of Bedrock and were soundly beaten by the Dinos. The shots were 43-18. The Dinos are now 3-2-0 and tied with Manitoba. Lethbridge falls to 0-5-0, tied with Regina.

The return match on Saturday night will be in Lethbridge and is scheduled for CanadaWest.tv. I would not be surprised to see a tougher battle. Last January, Bedrock U won game one 14-2 and then needed OT to win game two.

The Banjo Cats did much better against the Evil Monkeys than they did against the Bisons last weekend. There were just over 3 minutes left in the game when the Apes took the lead on a TJ Foster goal. It was Mucha against Gore in the goals, which before tonight had been a Regina weakness. The Saturday night rematch is also scheduled for CanadaWest.tv.

A close loss is still a loss. Regina falls to 0-5-0 and even though unimpressive, the Monkeys are 4-1-0. They are fortunate they did not start the season against any of the "Big Four".

MRU suffered their first loss of the season out in British California. The final score was an empty-netter. From what I was able to see this was a very closely-contested game, as one would expect. Dalyn Flette was tagged with the loss, and Mark Hewitt claimed the W. UBC is now 2-2-1 and MRU is 4-1-0.

We will see if MRU's hot start was an illusion as time goes on, starting with the Saturday matinee rematch (2:00 PDT, 4:00 CDT), also available at CanadaWest.tv.

What a Saturday night! The HNIC switch to Rogers was something to behold, the MLB playoffs were on, and the CanadaWest.tv feed from Sask was working. Well, the on-line video disappeared for half of the 3rd period. Apparently there was a big debate in Sask over what manure makes the best fertilizer, so their internet was down for a while.

While the Bisons led most of the night and seemed in control, it was only 3-2 until a late PP goal and an empty-netter put this one away. The sweep leaves both sides at 4-2-0 and tied for 3rd place.

For the Bisons, having two top lines really paid dividends this series. On Friday, it was Lewadniuk-Robinson-Merasty in control. On Saturday, it was DePape-Dickin-Paradis. After Lewadniuk scored the opener, it was DePape, Dickin, Paradis, and DePape again.

The 1st period was probably the kind of game the Bisons wanted. They held the Mutts to 7 shots and had a 2-1 lead. The goals by Lewadniuk and DePape were their 4th each of the season.

The 2nd was very free-wheeling, with each side registering 13 shots. Taylor Dickin (with his 2nd of the season) scored the only goal to make it 3-1 after two.

The 3rd period saw the Bisons assessed 5 penalties in 6 minutes. At the end of that stretch Jesse Ross scored Sask's only PP goal of the night on 10 chances. The Bisons answered with a PP goal of their own, from Jesse Paradis (his 1st) with just over 2 minutes left. The Herd was 2-for-5 on the PP. DePape's empty-netter sealed the deal.

Devan Dubyk was once again the Bison goaltender. He made it look easy, playing a strong positional game. Jordon Cooke continued the rotation in the Sask goal. He made about 3 1st class saves.

The Bisons return home next weekend to face the MRU Cougars. The Mutts hit the road to Edmontown, where they will face the Monkeys. Oddly, the Monekys and MRU are both 5-1-0 and the Bisons and Mutts are both 4-2-0.

As I suspected, the H0rny Ones put up a much better fight in the home leg of this weekend series. In fact, the game was tied 2-2 with about 4 minutes left when Bedrock U finally claimed the lead. Chris Collins scored twice for the Dinos, including the winner. And Deserres was the winning goaltender whilst Tait was tagged with the loss.

Calgary joins Manitoba and Sask at 4-2-0, and Lethbridge is tied with Regina in the cellar at 0-6-0.

This game shows both the strength and weakness of the Monkeys. They outshot Regina 51-14 on the night. However, with 3 minutes left it was a 3-2 game. T.J. Foster scored two more for the Evil Monkeys, giving him 7 for the season. Both sides rotated goaltenders, with Siemens in goal for the Apes and Kilgore minding the Kitty Litter.

The Monkeys are now 5-1-0 and tied with MRU for 1st place. Regina is 0-6-0 and tied with Lethbridge for last.

Despite MRU occupying a share of top spot, this figured to be a tight series, and it was. MRU was up 2-0 but two goals from Nick Buonassisi forced OT. Both sides switched golatenders, with Cam Lanigan going for MRU and Eric Williams for UBC.

MRU will bring their 5-1-0 record to the Wayne Fleming Arena next weekend. Could the Bisons change a 1st place team into a 3rd place team in consecutive weekends? UBC is now nestked comfortably into 6th place with a 2-2-2 record.

Last weekend the Bisons turned a team tied for first into a team tied for third. They have a chance to do the same thing two weekends in a row. I doubt that has ever been done.

Also, if Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Calgary all win at least once and UBC sweeps Lethbridge then the top 6 teams in the CW will be within 2 points of one another after the quarter-pole has been passed.

The last time the New-Kittens-on-the-Block visited Friendly Manitoba it was playoff time. The Bisons hosted the 4 v 5 quarter-final. After MRU won game 1 in double OT the Bisons won games 2 and 3 in what was a hard hitting heavyweight showdown. These two play the most physical style of any two teams in the CW and, by extension, probably the whole CIS.

The teams have both shown that they have more to offer than just body-checks. The Bisons have Shaq Merasty, Jordan DePape, and Aaron Lewadniuk in the Top 10 scorers and can add Taylor Dickin, Jesse Paradis, and Chad Robinson in the Top 20. MRU answers with Tyler Fiddler, Cody Carter, and Matthew Brown in the Top 10 and Scott McKay in the Top 20. All told, 10 of the Top 20 scorers in the league will be on display at the Wayne Fleming Arena.

The goaltenders are no slouches, either. Dalyn Flette for MRU leads the conference with a .948 save %. Devin Dubyk's .925 is not too shabby, either. After giving up 6 goals to start the season, Dubyk's GAA is 1.00 and his save % is .967.

Unfortunately, these games are not currently scheduled for a CanadaWest.tv broadcast.

After batting Lethbridge last weekend, Bedrock U hosts Regina this weekend. I guess that is what one would call a lull in the schedule. One would have to think that the Banjo-Cats are basically the same team as last year, and should be able to dent the W column. And the Dinos darn near lost to Lethbridge in the Saturday game last weekend.

This is a rebuilding year for Lethbridge. I doubt that they harbour any illusions about being a playoff contender. However, on every team hope springs eternal. And if anybody in the top 6 can be caught, it would have to be UBC. My guess is that the current top 5 teams would be thrilled to see UBC get anything less than 4 points on the weekend.

I have a hunch that the Evil Monkeys are not as good as expected. They opened with a 6-0 loss to Augustana of the ACAC (even though they badly outshot them). But still, they usually steamroll such opponents. As I have pointed out before: Excluding games against Regina and Lethbridge they are 4-4-0, and two of those wins were exhibitions in OT.

The Mutts were rolling along at 4-0-0 until they faced the wrath of the Bisons at the Rutherdump. I am not sure where the Mutts fit, either. Are last year's University Cup finalists both facing road trips in the quarter-final round?

I'll be posting more about the game later. It was a busy night on campus with football and volleyball also taking place.

This one was 0-0 until 30 seconds were left in the 2nd period. The Bisons made a couple of bad clears and then were guilty of turning their back on the play and it was suddenly 1-0. There was a string on chintzy penalty calls which disrupted the flow of the game. Saturday's matinee rematch goes at 1:00.

This was yet another hard-fought game. The Bisons won it with their only goal of the weekend, a point shot by rookie defenceman Josh Elmes, with his first goal as a Bison. Friday;s game was scoreless after almost 40 minutes, and this one was scoreless for 54 minutes. Even with 10 of top top 20 scorers in the league on the ice.

The worst thing of the weekend was the officiating. Friday night was a whistleblowing contest between the two referees. Saturday saw only one ref at the game but he still made several bad calls. This picture is worth 1,000 words:

This hip-check by Kyle Rous was called as 2 minutes for tripping.

Devan Dubyk was the first star, as is usual for the winning goaltender in a 1-0 game. GoBisons.ca also posted a photo of his break-away save, made when the game was still scoreless:

The Bisons and Cougars both shuffled their line-ups from Friday night. Here's how they lined up:

MANITOBA

GOAL
34 Dubyk (1 Spriggs)

DEFENCE
22 Bestland - 12 Sutherland
4 Gow - 3 Elmes
6 Paulsen - 28 Rous

FORWARDS
17 Callis - 23 Schreyer - 16 Paradis
25 Merasty - 21 Dickin - 27 DePape
8 Coates - 15 Robinson - 20 Lewadniuk
18 Kelly - 10 Dudar - 29 Bruyere

SCRATCHES
2 Bresciani - 5 Christensen - 9 Hunter
19 Rowinski - 24 Augert - Mospanchuk

MOUNT ROYAL

GOAL
29 Lanigan (33 Flette)

DEFENCE
7 Johnston - 4 Hrynyk
8 Baker - 11 Zarazun
24 Marshall - 21 Strong

FORWARDS
27 Cartier - 23 Fiddler - 22 Brown
20 Collett - 25 Jewitt - 18 Henry
17 Barrett - 16 Trzonkowski - 14 King
6 McKay - 12 ESkesen - 28 Pare

SCRATCHES
1 Nickel - 30 Moore
2 Van Ree - 5 Scott
9 Huisman - 10 Stephens - 15 Chagnon

For the Bisons, Rous ws in for Bresciani and Dudar was in for Rowinski. The Cougars switched goaltenders, and Marsgall was in for Stephens.

The conference bye week comes up next week. Due to scheduling abnormalities occasioned by CW sending a team to the Universiade this year, the Bisons will gace Lethbridge after the bye then play Alberta - Calgary - UBC - Alberta - UBC - Lethbridge all in doubleheader weekends. Very odd.

Anyhow, the New-Kittens-on-the-Block are now 6-2 and the Bisons 5-3 in what promises tio be a tight race in the CW.

The CIS and CW schedule/results pages were lacking boxscore links as I post. But similar boxscores can be located at the other links I posted.

The plucky Banjo-Cats had some fight in them in their Saturday rematch in the Town of Bedrock. The Dinos came out very serious about a sweep, and outshot Regina 19-4 in the 1st period. But all they had was a 1-0 lead. (Very reminiscent of the Flames-Blackhawks game from earlier this week.) Two more goals in the 2nd period could well have killed the hopes Regina may have had about entering the W column. But Regina rallied to score twice in the 3rd, whilst outshooting Bedrock U 12-8 in the process. Too little, too late.

It is not even November yet, and Regina is a full 8 points out of a playoff berth. Calgary is now tied with MRU for 2nd place. After a bye week, Calgary will face Saskatchewan and UBC will face Regina.

The Evil Monkeys started fast a built themselves a 4-0 lead after the 1st period. In the past, that would have meant game over. However, Sask scored 3 unanswered goals in the 2nd period (on just 11 shots on goal). That seemed to wake up the Monkeys. They did not sit nack to protect a one-goal lead. They outshot Sask 18-7 in the 3rd period and scored two more goals.

The Monkeys are now in 1st place by themselves at 7-1-0. They will spend the bye week in the States on a weekend tour, The Banjo-Mutts are now on a 4-game losing streak and are 4-4-0. Their next action will be in Calgary in two weeks.

The H0rny Ones were hanging into this one until 2 late UBC goals padded the scoreline. The shots were 35-31 for UBC, so this was not one of those goaltender-makes-it-close kind of games.

UBC vaults to 4-2-2, and they are tied in points with Manitoba, in 4th place. Lethbridge is tied with Regona in 7th. After the bye week, UBC is off to Regina and Lethbridge hosts Manitoba.

This game followed the Monkeys' prototype for this year. They dominate their opponents on the shot clock, yet the result was relatively close. In the 1st period the Monkeys had a 16-4 advantage in shots and led 2-0. The rest of the way the shots were 25-17, yet the Monkeys could only score the once. Kelly Mu-u-ucha recorded the shutout.

The Skull and Boneheads somehow won the NCAA title in 2013. This was their first game of the season. The Monkeys are now 12-4-0. On Saturday, the Apes will play Dartmouth.

Once again, the Evil Monkeys squashed their opponents. But this time they capitalized on their chances. They outshot the Greenies 15-4 and 11-1 in the first two periods.

After a bye week the CW returns to regularly scheduled programming. After a nice pre-season, the Bisons opened going 0-2 in the Town of Bedrock. However, they have now won 5 of 6 and are tied for 4th, only 4 points out of 1st place.

Lethbridge, on the other hand, is looking desperate. They are winless and tied with Regina for last. A distant last. Presently, Saskatchewan sits in 6th place at 4-4-0. Making up 8 points in 20 games is a tough task. And the H0rny Ones have been outscored 46-12 so far. That is hard to believe.

Here's what their series preview has to say:
To say the start of the 2014-15 season has been a struggle for the Pronghorns would be an understatement, but heading into a home-heavy part of the schedule, the 'Horns have a chance to right the ship.

Struggling to find consistency in their game on the road, the Pronghorns have been solid in both of their two home games this season despite losing both contests. The 'Horns opened the season with a close 2-0 loss to the Mount Royal Cougars and lost a tightly contested 3-2 game to the CIS ranked Calgary Dinos.

If the 'Horns are going to turn this season around, one area that can be focused on would be the play of their specialty teams. The 'Horns have only scored two power play goals in two games and are ranked seventh (6.5%)in Canada West. They are also ranked seventh in penalty killing (71.4%).

NCAA transfer Brandon Clowes and second-year forward Mitch Maxwell lead the 'Horns in scoring with four points apiece. Clowes is also tied for the team lead in goals with two. Defenceman Tim Campbell and Mike Forsyth have also scored twice this season.


The point must be made that Lethbrigde has played just two home games, parts of home-and-home series. From what I saw of them last year they do play hard. They will win a game some time, and the Bisons hope they will not be the unlucky team.

This used to be a key match-up. Two teams battling one another for 5th place year after year. This year, UBC is still fighting for 5th (or better) but Regina has slumped more than even I thought they would. They have a fairly veteran line-up, and were barely pipped for the 6th and final playoff spot last year. For two years I thought they over-achieved. Perhaps this season is the karma balancing out. Regina has not been blown away, like Lethbridge. The problem is that in 8 games they have only scored 8 goals. This ain't soccer, Kitties!

UBC is now 4-2-2 and in the log-jam. The Tweety-Birds have established themselves as a tough opponent. If they want to become a respected top-4 team they need to claim 4 points in away series like this one.

This should produce some very telling results. Bedrock U has done very well against teams outside Calgary. Their two regular season losses were both against MRU. Their two pre-season losses were to MRU and the Calgary Flames (prospects edition). They must feel uncomfortable in the presence of cowboy hats. Against teams from elsewhere they are 10-0-1.

The Banjo-Mutts are the reigning University Cup runner-up. However, they have looked very mid-range from the start of the pre-season onwards. They won their first four conference games (against Regina and UBC) but have now lost 4 straight (against Manitoba and Alberta). So where do they belong? Could they be an away team in the quarter-finals?

This is the feature match-up of the weekend. #1 v #2. Although I have MRU ranked #1, I do not believe that they are the favourites in this match-up.

The Evil Monkeys have been out-shooting teams yet having trouble scoring at times. They are not the dominant force they were a year ago, when they went 45-4-1. They are now an OTL away from matching last year's loss total. Of note, the Apes have thus far played the bottom four teams in the CW. They will close the first half against tougher opposition. However, over the last two weekends, against Saskatchewan and NCAA teams, they were showing signs of living up to their billing. They have scored 38 goals, which leads the CW.

How good are the New-Kittens-on-the-Block? From the start of pre-season on they have amassed a great record. I saw them play Manitoba first-hand and they looked strong, but no stronger than Manitoba. They have a strong defence. They and Bedrock U have both surrendered just 12 goals in 8 games. MRU comes in having split their last two series, against UBC and Manitoba. IMO this weekend will tell us if they are a contender or a solid quarter-finalist.

The Bisons found that the H0rny Ones are a decent enough team on home ice. Oddly, this was their first home series of the season. Thus far they have had two home-and-home series against Southern Alberta rivals, and two away series.

After finding two high-scoring lines in the early going, the Herd has now scored just 4 goals in their last 4 games. There has been no shortage of chances, however. On Friday they 36 shots and on Saturday increased that to 42.

Brett Dudar scored his first two goals as a Bison (one on each night) and Taylor Dickin notched his 3rd of the season. Devan Dubyk was in goal on Friday and stopped 30 of 32 shots (the final goal was an emoty-netter). Byron Spriggs saw his first regular season start and had dubious results. He gave up the 5 goals on just 23 shots.

These losses could prove devastating for the Bisons. Instead of being all alone in 3rd place they are in 5th, albeit just a weekend away from 3rd. Next week the Bisons host the Evil Monkeys whilst Lethbridge hosts Regina.

The Banjo-Cats have hit the win column! I have now stats, but UBC-Regina series ending in a split is nothing at all unusual over the years. Maybe things are just getting back to normal in the CW. UBC must now face Bedrock U where making up ground will not be easy. Regina would have to sweep Lethbridge to evacuate the basement.

The Banjo-Mutts appear to be just a cut below this year. They have now been swept by Alberta, Bedrock U, and Manitoba. I don't recall them starting 0-6 against the Big Four. Now Lethbridge dreams of catching them for a playoff berth! The Mutts host MRU next weekend in a series that may define both sides. Bedrock U is off to British California where they will be trying to cement themselves as a CIS-wide contender.

The Evil Monkeys turned the upstart Kittens into Pumpkins on Friday night. It was a good-ol' whoopin'. Saturday was a different story. The teams chose a home-and-home format this year and the venue change paid dividends for the Kittens. They had a 3-1 lead with just 7 minutes left. Then they fell apart. Suddenly, the Monkeys are cruising and the Kittens are part of a large mid-pack group where anything can happen.

The Evil Monkeys shot out of the gate like a monkey out of hell. They outshot the Bisons 26-7 but the score was just 1-0.

The play evened out in the 2nd and 3rd periods and the game was a nail-biter. Shaq Merasty scored the only goal of the 2nd period, which ended 1-1. Taylor Dickin gave the Bisons a 2-1 lead 6 minutes into the 3rd period. However, the Primates rallied with two goals 13 and 15 minutes into the period to put the Monkeys back in front.

In the end, Deven Dubyk stopped 43 of the 46 shots he faced for the Bisons and Kurtis Mucha stopped 18 0f the 20 he faced for the Monkeys.

The rematch goes Saturday at 6:00 at the Wayne Fleming Arena. It will not be available on-line.

Big road win for the New-Kittens-on-the-Block. Saskatchemawan should maybe start looking over their shoulders. Lethbridge and Regina start their weekend series on Saturday and if one of those teams could sweep then the Mutts might need to buckle down just to make the playoffs.

Saturday's rematch will be on at 7:00 CST on CanadaWest.tv.

This blurb said a lot:
Kris Lazaruk continues to tear up the Canada West goaltending stats as the Calgary netminder improves to 5-1-0 on the season with a 0.67 goals against average and 0.968 save percentage, both of which had upticks thanks to tonight's 16-save shutout. Williams got the nod for the Thunderbirds, falling to 1-2-1 and a 2.74 goals against average after stopping 21 of 24 shots Friday.
Amazingly, the teams combined for just 6 shots on goal in the 3rd period. The latenight Saturday rematch will on at 9:00 CST (7:00 PST).

Nov 8: Monkeys edge past Bisons for a sweep

This game was very similar to Friday's, the only difference being that the Evil Monkeys scored an empty net goal to seal the victory. The Monkeys started fast and accumulated a big lead on the shot clock (15-3) but only a 1-0 lead on the scoreboard. The 2nd period evened out (the Bisons outshot the Apes 10-7) and each team scored twice. All was then quiet until the empty=netter.

Bison goals were scored by Reid Gow (his first as a Bison) and Shaq Merasty (his 6th, and 2nd of the weekend). Deven Dubyk stopped 32 of 35 shots he faced in goal. Reddick, Koper, Foster, and Hickmott scored for the Monkeys, and Luke Siemens was the winning goalie.

The Bisons fall to 5-7-0, a record badly damaged by the losses to Lethbridge. The Monkeys are now 11-1-0.

The CW schedule will now take an odd twist. Due to the CW sending a men's team to the Universiade the schedule was shuffled. So instead of the teams playing one round-robin then reversing home ice for the second round-robin, we have a shuffling. The Bisons will host Calgary then visit UBC to meet for the first time and then visit Alberta to finish with them.

The Mutts could ill-afford another sweep on home ice to a mid-ranked team. This win salvaged a must-needed split. The win moves the Mutts to 5-7-0 and MRU falls to 7-5-0.

Both sides rotated goaltenders. Cam Lanigan played his 4th game for MRU, filling in for Dalyn Flette. Jordon Cooke continued his rotation with Ryan Holfeld for the Mutts.

UBC gained a weekend split against Bedrock U with this win. Jacob DeSerres didn't have his greatest game for Bedrock, allowing the 5 goals on just 23 shots, including a 3rd period where he allowed 2 and stopped just 3.

The H0rny Ones are on a roll! This was game 1 of a Saturday-Sunday series and they racked up their 3rd straight win. Now the Banjo-Cats face a must-win situation on Sunday afternoon. One would have suspected a split in this series. Lucas Gore was in goal for Regina and Dylan Tait for Lethbridge. Sunday's game is on CanadaWest.tv at 3:00 MST or 4:00 CST.

This series was in a Saturday-Sunday format. The Banjo-Cats needed to salvage a split, and they got it in convincing fashion. The H0rny Ones fall to 3-9-0 and the Kittens improve to 2-8-0.

In the 1st period Regina treated the `Horns like a ball of catnip. Shots were 16-3 and Regina held a 2-0 lead. They never slowed down at all, either. They held a 4-1 lead after the 2nd. And then they piled on 21 shots on goal in a scoreless 3rd period. Mitch Kilgore picked up the win in his 7th appearance of the season. The `Horns split the game between Tait and Shymko.
