After a bye week, the Herd is now off to Saskatchewan back-to-back weekends. First to meet the Banjo Cats in Regina, and next to face the Banjo Mutts in Saskatoon. Hopefully, the team will not be too grossed out by bad breath permeating from the stands and the general stench of the place.

This has the makings of a trap weekend. Regina has had a bad start and have had a bye week to address what ails them. While they were overwhelmed by Calgary and MRU, they were quite respectable against Lethbridge and UBC. Meanwhile, the Bisons have split every series so far, including an exhibition series at home against these very Kittens.

Last year, Regina beat the Bisons 3-out-of-4. However, in the three previous seasons the Bisons won 11-out-of-12. Overall, the Bisons have won 7 of the last 8 games played in Regina.

A quick look at the stats pages shows Regina's problems. Their top scorer is Conner Chaulk (1-4-5), and second is Landon Peel (0-4-4). The rest of the roster has 3 points or fewer. In goal, they once again are using all three goaltenders due to the stress of playing in the Regina kitty litter.

The Bisons are led by Adam Henry (4-5-9) and Keaton Jameson (1-8-9), part of a 5-way tie for 9th in conference scoring. In goal, Riley Lamb has taken the starting role and has been both busy and effective. His numbers are 4-2-0, .923 S%, 3.13 GAA. Jeremy Link got his first start last weekend, so it looks like he has jumped past Tyler Brown in the depth chart.

The nation's feature match-up of the weekend comes from the heart of #Wexit Country. The Bedrock Boys got it going during the pre-season and have maintained the pace ever since. This is a home-and-home series, Friday in Calgary and Saturday in Edmontown. The Evil Monkeys and Dinos had some tight battles in pre-season, and I expect these games to be hard-fought as well.

The Hørny Ønes have managed a few points here and there and are close enough to the middle of the standings to be confused with a playoff contender. I suspect they will falter a bit, and it could come in this home-and-home series. The Bluegars are a bit of surprise team thus far, moreso with others than with me. I liked their recruiting this year.

Nov 8: It Was Crazier than Moonshine

This was a 3-game Friday night in the CW, due to Sask and UBC having played during the bye week last week. There were two #Wexit series in Saudi Alberta, and an old GPAC rivalry revived.

REGINA COUGARS 3

This one had a few twists. The Regina broadcast crew seemed to like the game – claiming it was the best of the season thus far for the Banjocats. I have to admit that they looked better than their record.

The Bison line-up had some twists. LeagueStat listed 10 forwards and 8 defencemen. As usual, Ryan Carlson played forward instead of defence. But Lucas Skrumeda seemed to be (like 2 weeks ago) on defence again. Making his season debut was Carter Doerksen. Not sure if this is a sign of injuries amongst the forwards. Also, Tyler Brown was the backup goalie while Jeremy Link was scratched. Other scratches were Dyck, Barley, Labossiere, Halvorson, and Leblanc.

Quick Summary
2nd 02:27 MAN Christensen (1) ASST: Carlson
2nd 04:27 REG Hilsendager (1) ASST: Frei
2nd 10:37 MAN Thiessen (3) ASST: Pouteau, Skrumeda (PP)
3rd 07:50 MAN Wasylak (2) ASST: None
3rd 17:01 REG Duperreault (3) ASST: Frei
3rd 19:59 REG Frei (3) ASST: Ripplinger, King (PP)
4th 02:09 MAN Jameson (2) ASST: Henry, Skoleski (PP) (EN)

W: Lamb (25 saves, 28 shots)
L: Meger (17 saves, 21 shots)

The Bisons held a 15-14 edge in shots and had a 2-1 lead heading into the 3rd period. Jonah Wasylak made it 3-1 as he blocked a pass and then scored on a breakaway. From that point onwards, the Bisons went into a bit of a shell. That mostly worked. But Regina poured it on something fierce in the dying minutes. When they made it 3-2 with 3 minutes left, the Kittens went catnip crazy and wreaked havoc in the Bison zone. Adam Henry took a penalty during a net-front scramble with just 28 seconds left. Just when it looked like the Bisons were about to kill it off, the Banjo-Boys got one in with 1.3 seconds left.

On to overtime! There, one Kitten was caught high-sticking and before you could say “powerplay”, Keaton Jamieson scored the winning goal.

The Bisons are now 5-4-0 and the Cougars fall to 1-8-0. The rematch goes Saturday 3:00 p.m.

I tuned into this game after the Bison game was over. I gave up on it because the sound was no good and the picture periodically froze. It was 1-1 when I turned away. Within 5 minutes of play it was suddenly 4-2 for the Evil Monkeys. Brendan Burke got the win, stopping 16 of 19 shots. Matthew Greenfeld suffered the loss, with 19 saves on 23 shots. The Evil Monkeys are 8-1-0 and Bedrock U is 6-2-1, and have fallen into 3rd place.

The Hørny Ønes were no match for the Bluegars. In between my stints trying to watch the Bedrock/Monkeys play, I saw the Bluegars notch a couple. Wyatt Hoflin stopped 20 of 22 for the win and Taz Burman stopped 34 of 40 for the loss. The win vaults MRU into 2nd place with a 7-2-0 record, and keeps the Hørny Ønes in 7th (one point behind UBC) at 3-6-0.

This was a reasonably entertaining game. The Bison split streak stays intact for 5 weeks now. The only line-up switch from Friday was Halvorson for Apetagon.

Quick Summary
1st 18:44 REG Barnstable (2) ASST: Schacher (SH)

Shootout
REG Duperreault Goal
MAN Leipsic No Goal
REG Schacher Goal
MAN Henry No Goal

W:Holtby (29 saves, 31 shots)
L: Lamb (28 saves, 30 shots)

The Bisons are now 5-4-1, one point behind 4th place Saskatchewan. Regina is 2-7-1, just 3 points behind 6th place Lethbridge and a playoff berth. The Bisons are off to Saskatown to face the Mutts next weekend, and Regina is off to Edmontown to face the Apes.

The Apes registered an emphatic win here. Suddenly, the Dinos' hopes for 1st place now seem a page right out of history. Grayson Pawlenchuk scored twice for the Evil Monkeys and Matt Berlin stopped 18 of 19 for the win. Matthew Greenfield stopped 15 of 20 shots for the loss before being yanked in the 2nd period. Brodan Salmond stopped 15 of 16 in a mop-up effort. I switched away from this game on CanadaWest.tv to see MRU v Lethbridge.

The schedule-maker played a cruel trick on the Bisons this year, scheduling their Saskatchewan road-trips on back-to-back weekends. Last weekend they went south to Regina and this weekend it's up north to Saskatown. The Bisons have barely recovered from the outhouse smell which permeates the province.

The places have similarities, such as the shoeless, gap-toothed, unwashed, moonshine drinking hillbillies who abound in both locations. The differences? South is feline, north is canine. South is mediocre, north is a perennial contender.

In fact, the Banjo Mutts have been the Herd's nemesis in recent years. Over the last four years the Bison record is 3-12-1, and only 1-7-0 in Banjoland.

The Mutts lost their first three games, which was concerning since they finished first at 25-3-0 a year ago. However, they are now on a 5-0-2 roll. Meanwhile, the Bisons have split all five series thus far. All told, Sask sits in 4th place, one point ahead of the Bisons. The teams may well be on a collision course for a first round playoff match-up.

The team stats are fairly comparable. Sask has 35 goals, the Bisons have 32. Sask has given up 31 goals, the Bisons 33.

For “players to watch” on the Bisons, I suggest captain, defenceman, and leading scorer Adam Henry (5-6-11, tied for 9th in teh CW) and forward Keaton Jameson (2-8-10, 12th in the CW). Also, the three 5th year players have all been top-notch. Henry (+9) is paired with Sean Christensen (+10) on defence. Up front, 6' 4” Jonah Wasylak has improved his skill level over his five years to the point where he at times can dominate opponents.

Sask is led by 4th year forward Carson Stadnyk (6-3-9, in a 5-way tie for 13th in the conference) and a quartet of players with 8 points, in a 12-way tie for 18th in the CW (Carter Folk, Layne Young, Levi Cable, Collin Shirley).

Of course, good goaltending is always mandatory to be competitive. The Bisons have three first year goaltenders and Riley Lamb has won the battle to be #1. His numbers are top-notch: 5-2-1, .921 S%, 2.90 GAA. Jeremy Link and Tyler Brown have each had just one start.

Meanwhile, neither of Sask's goaltenders have equalled Lamb so far. Veteran Taran Kozun is 4-2-2, .891 S%, 2.86 GAA and second year Travis Child is 1-1-0, .897 S%, 3.55 GAA. Both have done better.

This series could end up being one of significance. If the Bisons split or sweep, they will likely be comfortably in a playoff position for a long time, and would have realistic hopes of even hosting a quarter-final series.

Welcome to the mismatch of the week! The Banjo Cats would love to have just one recruiting class to compare to the Evil Monkeys' average one. The Kittens have not made the playoffs since 2008. Since MRU joined the league, the Kittens have been 7th or 8th every year. Before that, they had a stretch of 6th or 7th place seasons. Meanwhile, the Apes are U-Cup or bust. The last time they did not qualify for the U-Cup final tournament was 2007. The time before that was 1998.

Good luck, Puddy Tats!

If you like watching teams in blue and yellow uniforms, this is the series for you. Also, this is the battle for the 6th and final playoff berth. The Hørny Ønes have 8 points, one ahead of the T-irds. Similar to the Bison series, this has the potential to define the remainder of the season for both teams. If one side could sweep, they could cast their gaze upon bigger and better things, like 5th place. Being the late game Friday, I'll likely see a good portion of that game.

This Thursday/Friday home-and-home crosstown derby should be top-notch. I have been watching on CanadaWest.tv while drafting this post. It is 4-4 mid-way through the 3rd period.

Bedrock U looked like world-beaters through the pre-season and early season. Then the Evil Monkeys made them crash to Earth last weekend. Meanwhile, the Bluegars keep trucking along. This series has overtime written all over it. Through 10 games, MRU has 52 goals and the Dinos have 43. Expect lots of offence.

Nov 15: Banjos Stymie the Bisons

This could be the weekend where things return to normal in the CW. Here's what happened Thursday and Friday nights.


MANITOBA BISONS 1

The Bisons never seemed to find their mojo in this one. However, some good goaltending by backup Tyler Brown kept them in it, down only 2-1 in the 3rd period. A dubious “throwing your stick” call on Jonah Wasylak led to the PP insurance goal which salted this one away. (He passed his stick to a teammate). Although Brown had a good performance, I would expect #1 Riley Lamb for Saturday night's rematch.

Quick Summary
1st 10:46 SSK Stadnyk (7) ASST: McVeigh Dmytriw (PP)
1st 19:35 SSK Neuls (2) ASST: Dmytriw (SH)
3rd 04:18 MAN Skoleski (3) ASST: Henry
3rd 10:10 SSK Cable (3) ASST: Young Ballhorn (PP)
3rd 17:47 SSK Bauml (3) ASST: Young Cable (EN)

W: Kozun (19 saves, 20 shots)
L: Brown (47 saves, 50 shots)

Of note, Sask was 2-for-8 on the powerplay, and the Bisons were 0-for-5. Once again, a key goal against was short-handed. Also, Carter Doerksen had 5-and-a-game for a head hit. I don't believe he'll suit up on Saturday.

Saturday's rematch starts at 7:00 CST and is on CanadaWest.tv.

This split was to be expected. The fact that Bedrock U got 3 points to the Bluegars' 2 means that they close to within 1 point of 2nd place.

Thursday night was a wild-west shoot-out style of game. Wyatt Hoflin got the W with 33 saves on 37 shots, and Brodam Salmond got the loss in relief, with 15 stops on 19 shots. Starter Matthew Greenfield started and allowed 1 goal on 5 shots in the 1st period.

On Friday night the scene shifted to Bedrock's Quarry, and the Dinos built a 4-0 lead before hanging on to a nail-biting victory. Chris Gerrie scored his 5th and 6th goals of the scene to make it interesting. Greenfield did not dress for the Dinos, so I suspect he'll miss some time with an injury. Salmond got the start and stopped 22 of 25 for the win. Hoflin started again for the Bluegars but after 4 goals on 16 shots, he was yanked in favour of Riley Morris, who made 17 saves to give MRU a chance.

I suspect that these two teams will be battling with the Mutts for 2nd place and that precious bye to the semi-finals.

This was the 50th consecutive win for the Evil Monkeys over the Banjo Cats. This includes playoffs and non-conference/exhibition games. But give the Kittens some credit. The deciding goal was an empty-netter and they looked pretty decent. I've seen the Apes have easier games at the University Cup. Grayson Pawlenchuk led the Monkeys with 2 goals and 2 assists. Brendan Burke stopped 21 of 23 shots for the win, and Brandon Holtby stopped 42 of 45 in a tough luck loss. The MKOnkeys are now in 1st place, 3 points ahead of 2nd, and Regina is in last, 3 points out of 7th.

Don't be deceived by the scoreline in this one. The T-irds had a nice comfortable win in progress, up 3-0 mid-way through the 3rd period. But then the Hørny Ønes fell apart. Tyler Sandhu scored his 4th, 5th, and 6th goals to lead the T-irds. Rylan Toth stopped 23 of 24 shots for the win. Jack Burgart stopped 22 of 29 for the loss. UBC's powerplay was an amazing 4-for-6 on the night. This result vaults UBC into 6th place, one point up on Lethbridge and 2 points behind Manitoba.

Nov 16: Bisons Swept in Saskatown

So it looks like the future is clear in the CW. There will be a battle between MRU, Calgary, and Sask to see which one will get a playoff bye and host a semi-final, and which two will settle for hosting a quarter-final.

Otherwise, Regina and Lethbridge will be out of the playoffs, Manitoba and UBC will be the away teams in the quarter-finals, and Alberta will get the first place bye and hosting rights throughout the playoffs.

The difference between the teams this weekend comes down to two factors:
1. empty net goals;
2. short-handed goals.

#1 is a by-product of #2. Without two shorthanded goals here, there would have been no need to pull the goalie and give up an empty-netter.

In this game the Bisons were shorthanded. Carter Doerksen was automatically suspended for incurring a major penalty on Friday. Josh Tripp, after starting the season injured, was also re-injured on Friday. Fortunately, with Lucas Skrumeda playing forward (mostly) this year, all they had to do was move him back to the blueline to have 6 defencemen.

Riley Lamb was back in goal, with Jeremy Link backing up.

W: Kozun (19 saves, 22 shots)
L: Lamb (26 saves, 31 shots)

The Bisons FINALLY return home next weekend to face the Evil Monkeys. The Mutts will play a home-and-home set with their provincial rivals, the Banjo Cats.

After a credible performance on Friday, the Kittens were badly thrashed in this one. The frustrated banjo-lovers had enough by the 2nd period and good-old western fisticuffs followed. Michael Eskra (Regina) and Dawson Davidson (Alberta) had fighting majors and the accompanying ejection. The Kittens switched goaltenders (Holtby must have been tired after Friday's game) and Dawson Macauley (stopped 22 of 27) split duties with Curtis Meger (stopped 23 of 26). Matt Berlin had a 19 save shutout for the Primates.

The Hørny Ønes got off to a better-than-expected start, after a weak pre-season. That bubble looks to have burst. The T-irds were dominant in this one. Patrick Dea got the win with a 14 save shutout. He could have been studying for a majority of the game, or enjoying some popcorn. Taz Burman took the loss, with 36 saves on 41 shots.

After a bye week and two weekends away, it has been a long time between home games for the Bisons.

This weekend marks the mid-point of the CW regular season. After this weekend each team will have played one regular season series against each opponent. This is the last season where this will be possible, due to the pending expansion into MacEwan and Holy Trinity next year.

The Evil Monkeys are running away with the CW standings so far. The rebuilding Bisons have had a credible performance, splitting every series until being swept in Saskatown last weekend. While the Bisons have to be considered underdogs in this match-up, it is worth noting that they are 7-7-2 against the Monkeys the previous four seasons. I don't think anybody in the CIS has done better. Going back over the last 11 seasons, the Bisons have a 12-10 edge. Of those 11 series, 8 have been split. The Bisons swept them in 2017-18 and 2015-16. Alberta's only sweep was in 2014-15.

At the start of the season I figured that the Bisons would need to survive the 1st half and would likely improve in the 2nd half. If they could split this weekend, they will be well situated for a playoff run. The Bisons and UBC are tied for 5th and 6th with 11 points each, 3 points ahead of Lethbridge.

The Apes have 4 of the Top 20 scorers, and 8 of the Top 40. That's pretty good. They have 57 goals through 12 games, which is one ahead of #2 MRU. But it's their goaltending/defence which has been most impressive. They have given up just 21 goals, way ahead of #2 Sask, with 35.

Note that audio of Friday's game is on 101.5FM, and both games are on-line at the links.

This year's Battle of Banjoland does not exactly size up to be a legendary rivalry. The Banjo-Mutts started slow (3 losses, then an OTL against Alberta) but since then they are 7-0-1. The Bisons were unfortunate to face them last weekend after they found their form. Meanwhile, the Banjo-Cats envy having a streak like that just once in their 9 lives. They faced the Monkeys last weekend. They had a nice performance on Friday but then were skunked 9-0 on Saturday. Is Friday a “trap game”? Sometimes a rivalry game is good for an underdog, or undercat in this case.

This is another home-and-home series. The Hørny Ønes are coming off a sweep against UBC where they went from a playoff position to an all-too-familiar position on the outside looking in. Meanwhile, in the Town of Bedrock, the Dinos started the season looking like national contenders, going 4-0-0 after a solid pre-season. They are now treading water, going 3-3-2 the last month. This could be TSN Turning Point for one, or both, teams.

This series probably will not garner much national attention, but I find it interesting. The under-rated Bluegars are a serious threat to claim 2nd place, and the quarter-final bye and semi-final hosting rights which go with that. If they have the proverbial “royal jelly”, they have to get 4 points in a series like this. Meanwhile, the T-irds have recovered from a slow early season injury avalanche. Last weekend the dominated Lethbridge. Now, that hardly ranks as grounds to book hotel rooms for the nationals. But they handled them better than most would have.

Nov 22: Monkeys Edge Bisons in a Squeaker

In the end, the favourites all won this night in the CW. Here's the details.

This was a tight game all the way through. The last goal was an empty-netter. The Monkeys won't be easy, but the Bisons showed they can be tough on the Apes. Here's how they lined up:

MANITOBA BISONS

35 Brown (30 Lamb)

Quick Summary
1st 09:06 ALB Miske (3) ASST: Baillie Hamaliuk
3rd 18:58 ALB Owre (8) ASST: Rehill (EN)

W: Burke (20 saves, 20 shots)
L: Brown (45 saves, 46 shots)

I listed the Primates defence as I did because the 5th and 6th defencemen never played as a pair. They occasionally spelled one of the top 4.

One unique feature of the game was that the Monkeys missed a lot of golden opportunities. The other unique feature was the extreme amount of sissy penalties they took. Baillie seemed to get on the wrong side of the ref. He took a cheap shot during a line change, and nobody likes that.

If the Bisons want to gain yet another split, they will need to find some offence. It would be interesting to see how the game would look if the Bisons were playing with the lead.

Saturday's rematch goes at 7:00, and it's the Movember game.

This came close to be being a trap game. In this battle of canines and felines, chalk one up for the puppies. Taran Kozun got the win with 15 saves on 16 shots, and Brandon Holtby had the loss with 24 saves (one on a penalty shot) on 27 shots. The teams are now Runnin' Back to Saskatown for the Saturday rematch.

The Hørny Ønes were outclassed by UBC last weekend and have to be somewhat happy that they picked up a point in this one. They must have found a small dose of Viagra. After I got home from the Bison game I caught the overtime on CanadaWest.tv. Broden Salmond got the win for Bedrock U, with 23 saves on 25 shots. Lethbridge had a two-goal performance from Luke Coleman and Taz Burman took the loss with an incredible 54 saves on 57 shots.

The T-irds held on to a 1-0 lead until mid-way through the 2nd period. From that point on it was all Bluegars. Ryley Lindgren paced the attack with his 7th, 8th, and 9th goals of the season. Thus, the Bluegars kept pace with Sask and Bedrock and remain 2nd in the CW standings, and UBC remains tied with Manitoba.

Nov 23: Bison Season-of-the-Split Continues

One split and three sweeps this weekend. Guess which series had the split?

This result will raise eyebrows across the country! However, the Bisons have shown they can expect a split with anybody now that they have split 6-out-of-7 series. Overall, the Bisons are 8-8-2 against the Apes over the last 5 years, and in the last 12 years at home they are 13-11.

Here's how they lined up:

MANITOBA BISONS

35 Brown (30 Lamb)

2 Henry 3 Christensen
5 Schioler 6 Dyck

5 Davidson 4 Kirichenko
22 Carroll 8 Rehill
7 Lange 23 Hamaliuk

Forwards
16 Pawlenchuk 21 Butcher 13 Owre
36 Cox 10 Soy 26 Sanford
20 Volcan 12 Philp 14 Jevne
37 Nickles 27 Miske 11 Cooper

Scratches
3 Lakusta 6 Freadrich 18 Baillie
24 Chizen 25 Smith 29 Paterson
30 Cardinal 40 Linaker

Quick Summary
1st 07:11 MAN Leipsic (3) ASST: Dalke Wasylak (PP)
2nd 05:26 MAN Apetagon (2) ASST: Henry Halvorsen
2nd 06:18 ALB Volcan (3) ASST: Jevne Kirichenko
2nd 10:58 ALB Soy (7) ASST: Cox Sanford (PP)
2nd 13:25 MAN Skrumeda (1) ASST: Keane Dalke
2nd 14:33 MAN Carlson (3) ASST: Skoleski Veloso
3rd 10:16 MAN Wasylak (3) ASST: Carlson (3)
3rd 11:40 ALB Sanford (1) ASST: Davidson Philp (PP)

W: Brown (30 saves, 33 shots)
L: Berlin (4 saves, 8 shots)
n/d: Burke (4 saves, 5 shots)

So the Berlin Wall came tumbling down after the 4th Bison goal. However, the shot clock was misleading in this game. The Bison goals were generally from golden opportunities. Leipsic's was a powerplay, Apetagon's was a sweet deke after some nice passes, Skrumeda and Carlson converted a nice pass, and Wasylak was a barging bull plowing through the slot. Wasylak was a force all night. The Monkeys might be concerned about how many liberties the Bisons could take in the slot, in prime scoring position.

To put the 5-goal outburst into perspective, the Monkeys had given up 21 goals in their previous 13 games this season.

I was surprised that Tyler Brown started again, instead of Riley Lamb. Brown's Friday performance was excellent, but Lamb has been one of the conference's best goaltenders all year.

The Monkeys still have a 3-point lead atop the table. The Bisons sit in 5th place, 2 points ahead of UBC and 4 points up on Lethbridge.

The Herd is off to Lethbridge next week and then it's time off for exams and Christmas holidays. The next home game is January 3rd when the Bluegars are here for a series.

Give the Banjo-Cats some credit. They came up with two credible performances, one home and now one away. This one was scoreless into the 3rd period. Jared Dmytriw scored the games only goals (his 5th and 6th of the season) and the winning backup goaltender Travis Child had a 28 save shutout. Brandon Holtby stopped 32 of the 34 shots he faced in being tagged with another loss.

The scene shifted to the Town of Bedrock for this rematch. Although the Hørny Ønes forced overtime (and thereby claimed a point) on Friday, this was a solid win for the Dinos. Brodan Salmond stopped 20 of 22 shots for the win, and Jack Burgart stopped 39 of 43 in the loss. Bedrock U needed the sweep to keep pace in that race for 2nd place.

Time for the second lap around the CW schedule.

Coming off good results against the Evil Monkeys, one might be excused for thinking that the Bisons are tuned up for a sweep of the Hørny Ønes. Such a result would likely guarantee the Bisons a playoff berth heading into the exam/Christmas break.

However, the Bisons already have one split with Lethbridge this year, and heading into the season their record against both the Hørny Ønes and the Evil Monkeys was 7-7-2. That is peculiar. Also, the Bisons have split 6 of 7 regular season series thus far. It must be noted that the Bison difficulties with Lethbridge are of recent vintage. In years gone by, a 3-1 season edge was the norm.

The Bisons are resting comfortably in 5th place, a long way away from 4th. My pre-season wish was to have a respectable 1st half and cash in on the inevitable 2nd half improvement. Well, I hope it's inevitable.

Adam Henry continues to lead the Bisons. The captain is 6-8-14, giving him an even point-per-game average from the blueline. He is one of 4 players tied for 7th in conference scoring. Landon Gross leads the Horns at 4-7-11. They have had a few 1st year players with reasonable stats.

The big difference between these teams is at the back end. The Horns have surrendered 65 goals, to just 48 by the Bisons. Taz Burman has been the Lethbridge starter and is 3-5-1, 4.72 GAA, .896 S%. Riley Lamb was the Bison starter until last weekend, his numbers were 5-3-1, 3.14 GAA, .914S%. I have confidence in all three of their 1st year golatenders. Tyler Brown is 1-3-0, 3.01 GAA, .929 S% and Jeremey Link is 0-1-0, 2.03 GAA, .957 S%.

In the Town of Bedrock the Dinos host the Banjo Cats. In the the battle for 2nd place, this is a must-sweep series on home ice for the Dinos. Simple as that. The Banjo Cats have made a habit of having at least one tough battle every weekend, and they are due to profit from those efforts.

This is the feature match-up of the weekend. The season started with the Bluegars sweeping the Banjo Mutts in Saskatown. Since then the Mutts have rebounded and now are just oine point removed from 2nd place, occupied by MRU. Although the sweep was impressive, in the four years prior the Mutts held a 14-2 advantage over the Bluegars. SO I don't think MRU will be cocky or overconfident in this series.

This series is of interest to the Bisons, since the T-irds are only two points behind. The Evil Monkeys should be reeling after last weekend, so I expect them to turn in a better performance on home ice.

Nov 29: Bisons Register Convincing Win

On Friday night, it was a home game for everybody in Alberta. And two games went all the way to a shoot-out.

The Bisons registered a sound victory to put themselves 6 points clear of 7th place Lethbridge and 4 points up on UBC. The Hørny Ønes took 7 consecutive penalties in the 2nd period, where they were outshot 15-3. It was somewhat of a miracle that they stayed within shouting distance.

Quick Summary
1st 03:53 MAN Pouteau (2) ASST: Dalke Thiessen
2nd 14:09 MAN Skoleski (4) ASST: Jameson (PP)
3rd 02:20 MAN Leipsic (4) ASST: Thiessen Henry (PP)
3rd 10:12 LET Sward (1) ASST: Grant (SH)

W: Brown (24 saves, 25 shots)
L: Burman (35 saves, 38 shots)

The rematch is Saturday at 1:00 MT/2:00 CT.

The Evil Monkeys dominated the shot clock throughout. But it was a 3+ minute deluge of 3 goals in the 2nd period which spelled the difference here. Brendan Burke stopped 13 of 16 shots for the win, and Rylan Toth stopped 27 of 31 for the loss, in two periods. Patrick Dea stopped 8 of 9 in the 3rd.

The Banjo-Cats always seem to have at least one decent game on the weekend, and they did play well on Friday night in the Town Of Bedrock. Before ths hootout, the Bedrock zamboni driver made a mess of the ice and ultimately finished with a small patch of unfinished ice to the right of the Dinos' goaltender. It drew the checkles of the announcers. It must be tough to operate on ice when in bare feet. The Dinos had a 4-2 lead in the 3rd period, but Ben Duppereault scored twice to fore overtime. Brodan Salmond stopped 27 of 31 for the win, and Brandon Holtby stopped 33 of 37 for the loss.

After the Bison game, I watched a bit of the Alberta game, then a lot of this one. It looked like a playoff game, and in could well be a prevfiew of the semi-final round. After two losses to the Bluegars in Saskatown, the Banjo-Mutts absolutely needed this one. The 3-pointer means that both of these teams, plus Calgary, are 10-3-2 and tied for 2nd place. Taran Kozun stopped 28 of 29 for the win and Wyatt Hoflin stopped 34 of 35 in the loss. MRU had a military-themed alternate jersey for this one.

Nov 30: Bisons End Semester with a Split


Once again, there was one split in the CW as the first semester wraps up.

This was in many ways a dopey Saturday afternoon game following a Friday night encounter. After suffering ahead shot on Friday, Colton Veloso was scratched from the Bison line-up, leaving the roster one man short.

Quick Summary
2nd 04:32 MAN Thiessen (4) ASST: Dalke, Pouteau
2nd 06:26 LET Borynec (1) ASST: Clarke, Coleman
2nd 12:14 LET Chynoweth (3) ASST: Coleman (PP)
2nd 16:12 MAN Wasylak (4) ASST: Dyck, Carlson
2nd 18:16 LET B Maxwell (4) ASST: Valentine, Trott
3rd 03:54 LET Coleman ASST: Clarke, Jensen
3rd 05:02 MAN Leipsic (5) ASST: Wasylak, Pouteau
3rd 05:23 LET R Maxwell (2) ASST: Fisher, B Maxwell
3rd 18:33 LET Borynec (2) ASST: Clarke, Sward (PP)

W: Burman (53 saves, 56 shots)
L: Lamb (32 saves, 38 shots)

The opening period was very loose, with the Bisons holding an edge in shots by a 16-11 margin. The second was similar, with the shots being 21-15 for the Bisons. However, 5 goals were scored. It appeared that the Bisons were content to throw all caution to the wind in order to pad the stats. While they controlled the play, they opened themselves up for uncontrolled counter-attacks.

Once the Hørny Ønes opened scoring in the 3rd, to get a 2-goal lead, the Bisons had to play to catch-up mode. On the night the PP turned the game around. Lethbridge was 2-for-5 and the Bisons were 0-for-5.

This marks the end of the semester, and the Bisons sit a respectable 5th with a 7-8-1 record. The Hørny Ønes are 4 points behind, at 5-10-1 and tied with UBC for 6th place. The next Bison action is January 3rd and 4th when they will host the MRU Bluegars. All-in-all, Bison management must be satisfied with the 1st semester. My thoughts were that their 2nd half was destined to be better than their 1st, due to the large amount of youthful turnover on the roster. We'll see if that materializes. Or maybe they'll just keep on splitting almost every series all season.


A good look at Lethbridge's vintage logo.

After experiencing their 2nd loss at the hands of the Bisons last weekend, the Evil Monkeys were firing on all cylinders on home ice against the T-irds. The shots were 41-23, and 13 of those UBC shots came in the 3rd period when they were trailing by 2 goals most of the time. (It was still just a 3-1 socre until the last 2 minutes.) Curtis Miske led the Monkeys with his 4th and 5th goals of the season and Matt Berlin claimed the W in goal. Rylan Toth stopped 36-of-40 shots he faced.

Alberta has a commanding lead atop the standings, at 14-2-0. UBC is now 4-9-3 and tied with Lethbridge for 6th place. During the break, the Apes will face the MRU Bluegars on Dec 28th and the NAIT Ooks of the ACAC on Dec 29th.

Although the Banjo-Cats had a decent effort, they again came up short. It was 2-1 heading into the 3rd period, at which time Bedrock U slammed the door on the Kittens, outshooting them 15-3. Tyler Gutenberg got the win in his first start of the season (he also had just one game last year), with 14 saves on 16 shots. Brandon Holtby stopped 30 of 34 in taking another loss. At 11-3-2, the Dinos are tied for 2nd, and the Kittens are dead last at 2-12-2. My guess is they be playing spoiler in the 2nd semester.

The Banjo-Mutts redeemed their season opening sweep at the hands of the Bluegars by achieving their own sweep this weekend. Despite a slow start, the Mutts are now 11-3-2 and tied for 2nd with Calgary. MRU falls to 10-4-2, two points behind. It all sets up a contest for 2nd place in the 2nd semester. Taran Kozun got the win with 26 saves on 28 shots, and Wyatt Hoflin got the loss with 34 save son 37 shots. This series had a playoff feel to it, and could well have been a playoff preview,

From a Bison perspective, it would have been nice to see captain, defenceman, and leading scorer Adam Henry selected. In 16 games he is 6-9-15, the CW's leading goal-scorer amongst defencemen and second only to MRU's Connor Blake (4-13-17), who was also not selected, in points.
