The Evil Monkeys scored twice per period en route to a handy win over the Royal Kittens. This is the only series in the CW for some reason. These teams evidently switched their series to this weekend from the beginning of January when the remainder of the teams will play their corresponding series. Since this series is being played out of synch with the rest of the schedule, this is the last series between these teams. Whilst MRU falls to 2-7, after this weekend they have only four games left against the top three teams (two against Sask and two against Manitoba).

The only news coming from the CIS was the Top Ten. It is strange. Sask is #1 and Alberta is #2. Oddly, Toronto is #9, I recommend the OHT35 for better rankings.

The Vancouver Sun has an article touting UBC (amongst others) as a hockey alternative during the lockout.
On the UBC campus, T-Bird coach Milan Dragicevic has noticed a definite lockout boost, much of it due to the exposure the ‘Birds received from the Bieksa Buddies charity game Oct. 17. They played before a full house of 5,000 that night and, two days later, about 1,000 came back to see UBC’s home opener against the Lethbridge Pronghorns.

“Last year, we averaged close to 500 fans a game and this year we’re averaging close to 900 so it’s a pretty big increase and that’s very positive,” Dragicevic noted. “The Bieksa game helped a lot. It opened up people’s eyes to how good CIS hockey is and how good UBC hockey really is. All our guys were stars at the junior level, whether it was in the WHL, BCHL, or AJHL.

“So many people who come watch a game always say they want to come back,” added the UBC coach. “It’s just a matter of getting them to make that initial visit. We’ve definitely noticed we’re getting more exposure because of the Bieska Buddies game and the fact the Canucks are skating with us.”

The Globe and Mail (Toronto's national newspaper!) has a rather rosy story on the Blahs entitled "Glory days here again for UofT Varsity Blues?" Now, it is nice that they have some wins. But here's their record, which I say is so-so, and not even top 20:
Sept 28 UOIT 0 Toronto 7 ex
Sept 29 Toronto 4 York 6 ex
Oct 2 Toronto 1 York 7 ex
Oct 6 Toronto 2 Mass-Lowell 5 ex
Oct 7 Toronto 0 Boston U. 5 ex
