The City of Winnipeg was in pre-blizzard conditions, yet there was a decent enough turn-out to see the Bisons play their first home game of 2013. While the win was convincing, the performance was not. The New Kittens on the Block simply do not constiute a threat to the Bisons. They do have a big defence, and a few large forwards as well. Their solid blue uniforms tend to enhance the visual effect of their size. But their only offence tended to come from the Bisons making unncessary gambles in an attempt to pad the stats.

Matthew Lowry led the Bisons, scoring his 7th, 8th, and 9th goals of the season and was named 1st star. Dylan Kelly contributed his 3rd and 4th goals of the season to earn 2nd star honours. For some reason they named Jesse Deckert 3rd star. I thought he was fighting the puck. He was rolling around on his back on more than one occasion when it was not necessary. Tyler Dittmer also scored his 9th of the season. And new recruit Brodie Melnychuk made his debut on the Bison blue-line.

Here's how they lined up:

Manitoba

Goal:
35 Deckert (1 Caligiuri)

Defence:
4 Schappert - 20 Lockerby
6 Melnychuk - 2 Crowley
3 Mestery - 24 Bobbee

Forwards:
23 Dittmer - 19 Duval - 26 Macaulay
21 Cowan - 9 Lowry - 10 Rowinski
29 Cain - 11 Henry - 27 Feakes
18 Kelly - 25 Ciarelli - 16 Paradis

Scratches:
G: 34 Dubyk
D: 5 Christensen - 12 Sutherland - 22 Bestland
F: 14 Green - 15 Scott - 17 Lauder

Mount Royal

Goal:
30 Cote (33 Flette)

Defence:
6 McKay - 20 Tresierra
5 Scott - 21 Strong
26 Beech - 4 Perreault

Forwards:
28 Knopp - 8 Turnbull - 14 J Burns
13 Brown - 25 Jewitt - 16 Galbraith
24 Marshall - 19 Harrison - 12 Eskesen
15 Asuchak - 17 Barrett - 9 Garrison

Scratches:
G: 1 Nickel
D: 3 Collister
F: 7 Reinbolt - 10 Ius - 11 M Burns
F: 18 MacMaster - 22 Brown

I'll be interested to see if Saturtday's matinee match-up (don't forget - 2:30) will see the Bisons introduce some of the taxi squad to the line-up. The 4th line got way more ice time than usual, and had two goals and several more good chances.

The snake-bit Bison of the night was easily Luke Cain. He had three goalposts.

The hit of the night was a double head-shot when two Kittens collided inside their blue-line. Jordon Harrison ran into Tyler Eskesen (or vice versa). Both were down and out as the Bisons were on the offensive. The ref blew play down perhaps early than the rules call for, simply because they needed help off.

OUT OF TOWN SCOREBOARD:


UBC THUNDERBIRDS 7
LETHBRIDGE PRONGHORNS 1

The H0rny Ones are officially the free square on the CW Bingo Card. They were soundly whipped, and perhaps were even flattered by the scoreboard. The shots by period show how one-sided this debacle was: 21-7, 21-6, and 16-2. That's right. Down 3-1 entering the 3rd period on home ice and Lethbridge only gets two shots on goal in the period. Saturday's rematch is on CanadaWest.tv.


SASKATCHEWAN HUSKIES 2
ALBERTA GOLDEN BEARS 3

The U of A used to be fast with posting game stories, but still nothing as I draft this post. (EDIT: The links are added for Game Stories and CIS Boxscore.)

This was another game where the Monkeys dominated the stats but were unable to put the Banjo-Mutts away. The Mangy Ones were able to steal two games in Saskatown in the 1st half of the season, and could well have done so again on Friday night. After two periods the game was tied 1-1 but the shots were 28-14 in favour of the Primates. The Hillbillies then had only two shots on goal in the 3rd period, but one of them went in. The game was tied 2-2 when Kruise "Pokey" Reddick scored at 18:39 of the 3rd to give Saudi Alberta at least temporary control of 1st place.

Coupled with Manitoba's win, Sask is now just 3 points ahead of the Herd in the race for 2nd, while falling 2 points behind Alberta in the race for 1st.

Saturday night's rematch will be on CanadaWest.tv.


REGINA COUGARS 1
CALGARY DINOSUARS 2

Those always surprising Banjo-Cats engaged the Bedrock Boys in quite a battle Friday night. A shorthanded goal by Walker Wintoneuk (his 11th) early in the 3rd period gave the win to the Dinos. Regina went with Lucas Gore in goal, while Calgary countered with Dustin Butler. Both sides have been rotating goaltenders most of the season, so look for that. Regina falls 4 points behind Calgary, and two behind UBC.

NEWS:

The on-going troubles in Dalhousie continue to make headlines. The Chronicle-Herald laments the dwindling leadership affecting all of Dalhousie hockey, from the men's and women's teams problems to their arena being torn down as plans are still in preliminary stages (at best) for the construction of a new one. A separate story pins the likely source of the men's team investigation to "scholarship irregularities".
