HERD SUFFERS DEFEAT IN COW-TOWN


MANITOBA BISONS 2
CALGARY DINOS 6

The Bisons could have watched the Dinosaurs go extinct with a Friday night win. But as I was following along with live updates while watching and listening to other games on-line, it was a night of suffering. Calgary broke the ice with an early and a lat goal in the 1st period. Although the Bisons mounted a bit of a 2nd period comeback, each time they scored the Dinos notched one of their own shortly thereafter. The Bisons did hold a 21-19 lead in shots heading into the 3rd. But it appears that the 3rd was a snore-fest as the Bisons only rallied with 4 shots against 6 for Calgary. This would be an off night for Christie, giving up 5 goals on 20 shots. Jesse Deckert got some mop-up work, and stopped 4 of 5 shots.

Of note, Ian Duval was back in the Bison line-up. He only played the first four games before being hurt. However, Myles Rumsey was out for the 3rd straight game. Mike Hellyer and Blair Macaulay scored for the Herd.

OUT-OF-TOWN SCOREBOARD:

  • REGINA COUGARS 3
    ALBERTA GOLDEN BEARS 5

    From what I saw of this one, Alberta is vulnerable. Although Regina was down 4-1, they came back and Alberta only sealed it with an empty-netter. Regina pounded goalie Mucha (or Mu-u-ucha in Evil Monkey) with 20 3rd period shots, which is about all they could muster in 3 periods against the Bisons.


    SASKATCHEWAN HUSKIES 3
    UBC THUNDERBIRDS 0

    The Tweety-birds gave it all they had, but tonight they frankly had little to give. The game was pretty even but Sask tallied one goal per period en route to a solid road win. The UBC announcers lamented UBC's playoff predicament as a result of this loss. They dressed a full roster of 20, but only 4 were proper defencemen.
Here's how the CW home stretch looks:
Code:
                Feb 4-5      Feb 11-12   Feb 16   Feb 18-19  Feb 25-26   
Alberta     28  Regina    2  @ Sask               Manitoba   @ UBC       30
Sask.       26  @ UBC     2  Alberta              @ Leth.    @ Manitoba  28
Manitoba    26  @ Calgary 0  UBC                  @ Alberta  Sask.       26
Calgary     24  Manitoba  2  bye         @ Leth.  Regina     Lethbridge  26
Lethbridge  22  bye       -  @ Regina    Calgary  Sask.      @ Calgary   22
UBC         22  Sask.     0  @ Manitoba           bye        Alberta     22


  • The CIS schedule and the CIS standings are all updated. The CIS Friday Recap is not up as I post but may be as you read. Here's what happened out east, including the early start games from Thursday:

    Feb. 3
    Waterloo 3 Guelph 5
    Toronto 5 Ryerson 2

    Feb. 4
    Dalhousie 3 Moncton 4
    UNB 2 StFX 1
    UPEI 3 Saint Mary's 6
    Acadia 4 St. Thomas 2
    Carleton 6 Ottawa 2
    Ryerson 1 Queen's 3
    UOIT 3 Brock 1
    Windsor 3 W. Ontario 4
    York 4 Lakehead 2

    This is weird. No overtime games in any conference. I saw a bit of UNB v StFX on-line. Could StFX do it to UNB again in the playoffs? One has to wonder. SMU broke out with a win over UPEI, who now rate as the coldest contender from the AUS. Moncton has really rallied and Dal-lousy is now out of the playoffs.

    Of, poor Lakehead. Losing at home to York. They must be happy that everybody with a pulse makes the OUA playoffs. Carleton seems to be making a bit of a rally. That's not only 4 straight wins, but 4 straight by 5, 3, 4, and 4 goal differences.



    The Canada West Women's Site has a full Friday night report. Here's the scores:
    Manitoba 2 Calgary 3 (SO, completion of appealed game)
    Calgary 2 Manitoba 1 (SO)
    UBC 2 Sask. 3
    Alberta 3 Regina 1
    Bye: Lethbridge

    The Bison Broads and Wilmas finished the shoot-out from the earlier protested game, then played their regular game which also ended in a shoot-out. So 4 points to Calgary and 2 to Manitoba on the night. Odd!

UNIVERSIADE NEWS:
  • The men had the day off. In women's play, Canada beat the USA 8-1 and Finland beat Slovakia 5-1. So it will be Canada v Finland for gold. In Saturday's men's semi-finals it will be Russia v Canada and Belarus v. Kazakhstan.

NEXT UP:
  • Feb. 5
    Saskatchewan at UBC
    Manitoba at Calgary
    Regina at Alberta
    Bye: Lethbridge

    Feb. 11-12
    UBC at Manitoba
    Alberta at Sask.
    Lethbridge at Regina
    Bye: Calgary
