Yes, boys and girls, they still have good old tie hockey games in the NCAA. Frankly, I prefer that to shoot-outs. They did play 5 minutes of OT and then shook hands. So what's the problem?

BTW, I did note that Western Ontario won their shootout against Western Michigan on Saturday, even though the game was reported as a 2-2 draw. So maybe they sometimes have shoot-outs in exhibition games but have no means of entering the data into their computers. Oh well.

BSU has a lot of neat stuff on their web site. However, multiple links lead to similar but not the same information. And some information is wrong. The “Game Day” link led to live on-line radio and also listed the teams' lines. It did not have jersey #s but did have the correct Bison line-up, unlike other links. The “Live Stats” link was updated throughout the game and had rosters, summaries, etc. After the game, the “Boxscore” link led to the traditional printable boxscore from the company the CW used before LeagueStat. (The AUS still uses them.) On both of those they listed Blair Osiowy instead of Eric Mestery as #3. They also listed Schappert as #4 and “04” as #04, and Lowry as #9 and “09” as #9.

It was nice to get on-line audio, but one broadcaster thought that Thunder Bay was on the coast. Jeesh! It's not all that far away from Bemidji!

The more reliable “Game Day” link listed the Bisons like this:

Forwards:
Tyler Dittmer – Ian Duval – Blair Macaulay
Del Cowan – Paul Ciarelli – Matthew Lowry
Luke Cain – Austin Lauder – Tyler Feakes
Dylan Kelly – Brendan Rowinski – Jesse Paradis
Brett Chartier – – Craig Scott

Defence:
Jeremy Schappert – Brandon Lockerby
Eric Mestery – Jeremy Schappert
Lee Christensen – Brock Sutherland

Goal:
Jesse Deckert (2 periods) - Deven Dubyk (3rd period and OT)

The scratches were therefore goaltender Joe Caligiuri, defencemen Darren Bestland and Dane Crowley, and forward Nathan Green. Neither Bestland nor Green were on the trip. I am hoping that there was no injury for Crowley in Saturday's game.

The Bisons host Saskatchewan next weekend, with games at 7:00 p.m. Friday and Saturday nights.



OUT OF TOWN SCOREBOARD:


LETHBRIDGE PRONGHORNS 1
MINNESOTA STATE MAVERICKS 7

This was another thorough trouncing for the Viagra-less H0rny Ones. They did score the opening goal but thereafter were outshot 65-10 and by all accounts were never really in this one. It seems that Regina and Lethbridge will continue to struggle when the CW regular season progresses. One has to hope that both sides will mature as the season progresses so that their Junior “A” recruits will find their legs.


UBC THUNDERBIRDS 1
COLORADO COLLEGE TIGERS 3

Unlike Barack Obama, the Tweety-Birds don't seem to be having too much difficulty with the altitude in Colorado. A 2-2 draw followed by a 3-1 loss against pretty good teams would be a fine performance, especially for a team coming off a split with Regina. The 'Birds were outshot 36-21 on the night. It is still hard to gauge this team. Thus far one would have to say that their results are fairly typical UBC results.
