These teams have played in the CW final in 14 of the last 20 years. It seemed the near-streak was in danger for a large segment of the season. But here we are. Sask won this year's series 3-1.

I was watching the Jets beat St. Louis to cling to life and missed seeing this game. Seems like it was a good one. The Monkeys never trailed and had leads of 1-0, 2-1, and 3-2 before finally grabbing a 2-goal lead. Here's the scorers:

Default Mar 5: Monkeys Rally For Title

Another year, another title for the Evil Monkeys. Despite the scoreline, the Mutts held the lead until late in the 2nd. A four-goal 3rd period put it away for the Monkeys. That can happen when playing a 3rd game in three days. When the wheels fall off it can be hard to come back. Here's who scored:

1st
4:56 Sask Stadnyk (1) A: Cable (2), Bauml (3)

2nd
1:30 Alta Philp (4) A: Trevor Cox (3) (SH)
9:37 Sask Gay (3) A: Sofillas (2), Roach (1) (PP)
18:11 Alta Sanford (2) A: Cox (4), Bredo (3) (PP)

3rd
6:35 Alta Crooks (1) A: Baillie (2), Legault (1)
8:42 Alta Cooper (3) A: Linaker (4), Nickles (2)
8:51 Alta Crooks (2) A: Craig (1)
11:56 Sask Tkatch (1) A: Thomas (2), Yakubowski (2)
19:30 Alta Crooks (3) A: None (EN)

Once again, it was Burke and Cooke in goal. The shots were 35-35.

Now the only 1st place team still with a chance at a conference title is the UNB Red Squirrels.

OUT EAST:

no games

NEXT UP

Note: AUS final is UNB v SFX and 3rd place series is between ACA and SMU.

Mar 06 St. F.X. at New Brunswick (game 1)
Mar 06 Saint Mary's at Acadia (game 1)

Mar 08 New Brunswick at St. F.X. (game 2)
Mar 08 Acadia at Saint Mary's (game 2)

Mar 10 St. F.X. at New Brunswick (game 3 if necessary)
Mar 10 Saint Mary's at Acadia (game 3 if necessary)

Mar 11 York at Queen's (Queen's Cup, sudden death)
Mar 11 Windsor at McGill (OUA 3rd place playoff)

Default Mar 8-10: All Eight U-Cup Qualifiers Determined


Mar 10 Windsor 3 McGill 6 (McGill gets 3rd place)
Mar 11 Queen's at York (Queen's Cup)

So here's how the U-Cup should be seeded:

1 Alberta
2 St. F.X.
3 York/Queen's winner
4 York/Queen's loser
5 New Brunswick
6 Saskatchewan
7 Acadia
8 McGill

To avoid an all-AUA match-up they would have 1 v 7 and 2 v 8, so the brackets would be:

Default Mar 16-17: U-Cup Quarter-Finals "Upsets"



York beat Queen's 4-3 to take the Queen's Cup in a one-game showdown and claim the automatic 3rd seed, whilst Queen's was awarded the 4th seed. Why they continue to do this makes little sense, especially given the quarter-final results.


ALBERTA GOLDEN BEARS 1
ACADIA AXEMEN 4


Links:

Boxscores: [USports]
Stories: [US] : [AUS] : [rp @UofA]

Officially, the Monkeys were seeded #1 and Acadia #8. P-shaw! In the final OHT35, Acadia was #3 and Alberta #4, making this the feature game of the opening round. Alberta (like always) held the edge in shots on goal. But Acadia won. The Apes opened the scoring and led 1-0 after the 1st, with a 13-9 lead in shots. In the 2nd period Acadia scored twice on 7 shots then coasted through the 3rd before sealing the deal with an empty-netter.


QUEEN'S GOLDEN GAELS 1
NEW BRUNSWICK VARSITY REDS 5


Links:

Boxscores: [USports]
Stories: [USports] : [rp @UNB] : [rp @OUA] : [AUS]

As the OUA runner-up, the Queens had to be seeded 4th. Weird, eh? As the AUS runner-up, UNB had to be seeded 5th or lower. So this was another "upset". However, under the OHT35, the Squirrels were 1st and the Queens were 9th. So this was no upset. The Windbags got the opening goal just over 2 minutes into the game. And that was the highlight of their season. By the end of the 2nd period the shots were 33-10 in favour of UNB and it was 5-1. Queen's then surrendered meekly in the 3rd, mounting a mere 5 shots.


YORK LIONS 0
SASKATCHEWAN HUSKIES 1

(in overtime)

Links:

Boxscores: [USports]
Stories: [USports] : [rp @CW] : [rp @OUA] : [UofS]

Last year the Mutts played way too much OT and seemed to be trying that failed formula again. This time, though, the opening OT was barely a minute's worth. There were quite a number of poenalties in this one (40 minutes). Jordon Cooke got the shutout, with 24 saves. Mack Shields stopped 31 of 32, which makes for a tough loss. This was another oddly seeded game. As OUA champs, York had to be seeded in the top 3 (and were 3rd) and Sask, as CW runner-up, had to be 5th or lower (and were 6th). So this was another techinical "upset", the 3rd in the first three games. But the OHT35 rankings say that Sask is #2 and York is #14. The Mutts can't be happy about having to play in the morning again. But they will benefit by getting some extra rest for Saturday's semi-final round.


ST. FRANCIS XAVIER X-MEN 4
MCGILL REDMEN 1


Links:

Boxscores: [USports]
Stories: [USports] : [rp @OUA] : [SFX]

The Jeremies scored early and led throughout. They outshot the McGilligutties 35-22 and it seems coasted to a win. This was the only "non-upset" of the opening round. SFX was ranked 2nd (as AUS champion) and McGill 7th (as pre-assigned qualifier #3 from the OUA). But in the OHT35, SFX was #8 and McGill was #5. McGill's playoff loss to Queen's and X's wins over Acadia and UNB would, of course, change that. Anyhow, a repeat of last year's OT semi-final between Sask and X is now on the agenda. Starts at 2:00 CDT on Sportsnet360 according to my PVR.

Default Mar 18: Mutts to chase Squirrels in Final


Saturday was the penultimate day in the U-Cup. Here's what happened.


ACADIA AXEMEN 0
NEW BRUNSWICK VARSITY REDS 3


Links:

Boxscores: [USports]
Stories: [USports] : [rp @UNB] : [rp @AU]

The Squirrels had a reasonably comfortable win over a steady Cajun team. The shots were 30-20, and they had one goal per period. The good thing is that the morning game was at least between two Atlantic teams.


SASKATCHEWAN HUSKIES 8
ST. FRANCIS XAVIER X-MEN 0


Links:

Boxscores: [USports]
Stories: [USports] : [rp @CW] : [rp @UofS]

This was an old school whuppin'. I thought the Mutts were the better team in the 1st and only some momentum-draining calls stopped them from having a multi-goal lead. Then came 6 goals on 12 shots in a 2nd period that simply cannot be explained. I saw it and otherwise mightn't have fully fathomed what occurred. At some point the Jeremies just couldn't get up for the game any more. Only one Mutt (Logan McVeigh) scored twice. Jordon Cooke registered his 2nd consecutive shutout.


So Sunday morning at 7:30 a.m. CDT it will be Acadia v St. F.X. for bronze. I may be asleep for that one. Then at 11:00 a.m. CDT it will be Saskatchewan v New Brunswick in the final, on Sportsnet 360.

Default Mar 19: Squirrels Take Title


This puts a wrap on the 2016-17 season in CIS/USports hockey.

ST. FRANCIS XAVIER X-MEN 3

Stories: [USports] : [rp @AU]

Nobody expected the Jeremies to win this morning game after playing the late game on Saturday, did they? The fact the shots were somewhat even (34-29) is a bit of a surprise. So The Cajuns at least salvage a bronze from this tournament.


NEW BRUNSWICK VARSITY REDS 5
SASKATCHEWAN HUSKIES 3

The Mutts had a chance to stuff the Squirrels in the 1st period. They seemed to be able to skate and pass at will. However, the Squirrels were able to hit from behind which was able to clog up the mid-ice. Nevertheless, the Squirrels scored twice by simply charging the net. When playing a 3rd game in 3 days the ability to simply stand up to this is sometimes just not there. So, the 1st period shots were 11-8 for Sask, but the score was 2-1 for UNB.

Although the 2nd period was also 2-1 in favour of UNB, it was a vastly different period. The shots were 21-5 and the Mutts looked in need of some invigorating toilet water and some Alpo heavy duty.

I was set for an ugly 3rd period from Sask, a la SFX's 2nd period from Saturday. But an early PP goal made it 4-3 and the game was very much in doubt. However, there was no 2nd wind from the Mangy Ones and that was all she wrote.

Cam Braes scored 4 times for the Squirrels, and be darned if I know when somebody last scored that many in a championship game.

So now is the time to wait for off-season recruiting news and announcements for September's exhibition games.

Default Apr 16: A Post-Season Catch-up

At the end of a season there are usually a few stories of note in the aftermath. And since it has been since the U-Cup that I last posted, there is actually quite a bit.


There were some links not posted from the U-Cup, and here they are. The CTV ones have video clips.

Bison goaltender Byron Spriggs dressed for the Charlotte Checkers (AHL) on March 9th in a game against the Manitoba Moose. Then when the Moose needed a goaltender to back-up down the home stretch, he signed an AHL ATO for the balance of the season. He also got the Bison Team MVP award for the season. Remi Laurencelle was also named the team rookie-of-the-year. Brett Stovin wrote up Bison Blog #7 as an end-of-the-year wrap up. He liked the strong second half rally. No shock there!

NAIT had won the last two ACAC titles and had finished first. MacEwan was second and this is their first title since 2004. MacEwan is in the CWUAA in other sports. There are clearly a lot of good teams in Edmonton.

Victoria finished 4th in the 5-team league with a 9-14-1 record and then swept the Simon Fraser Clown in the semis before defeating TWU 2-games-to-1 in the final. TWU nosed out the 4-time defending champion Selkirk College Saints for 2nd place and then swept them in their semi-final. Both UVic and TWU are CWUAA members as well.

BCIHL: [Announcement]
VIU: [Twitter] : [Team Site]


This is the time of the year when we usually get news of a program in trouble, and in fact last year St. Thomas and Keyano announced they were folding. However, the BCIHL is back to being a 6-team league with the addition of the Vancouver Island University Mariners to the fold for 2017-18. They have never before been in the league. One would hope that former BCIHL teams like Fraser Valley, Thompson Rivers, UNBC, and Okanagan College might also make their return.
