EVIL MONKEYS GET SPLIT
... in severe blow-out

November 15, 2008


ALBERTA GOLDEN BEARS 9
MANITOBA BISONS 1

[BOX SCORE] <> [RECAP] <> [GAME SUMMARY] <> [GAME SHEET]
[U OF M STORY] <> [CIS STORY]


I had to miss this one because my son had an evening game Saturday night. I missed a stinker, unlike anything the Bisons have had on home ice in my memory. They outshot the Evil Monkeys 9-6 in the 1st period but were behind 1-0. Then things fell apart. Alberta scored 4 times in each of the 2nd and 3rd periods on an onslaught of shots (14 in the 2nd, 17 in the 3rd).

To keep things in perspective, it is still a weekend split. Alberta is 1st in the conference and ranked #1 in Canada. So 2 points here is very much an enviable weekend. The Bisons have 14 points in 14 games and are in 3rd place. However, Regina and Lethbridge each have 12 points through 12 games.

Not every shot went in!

Two close games ober the weekend, but still a 4-1 points edge to the Cougars. UBC has now fallen firmly into 7th place.


LETHBRIDGE PRONGHORNS 4
CALGARY DINOSAURS 3

[BOX SCORE] <> [RECAP] <> [GAME SUMMARY] <> [GAME SHEET]

Similar to the UBC-Regina series, this one produced two close games but, in the end, one side was swept. Calgary, however, never managed even a bonus point for an OTL. Calgary is only 2 points behind the log-jam of .500 teams but are only 1 point ahead of UBC.

I was at the Moose game so I just picked up the score of this one after the fact. The H0rny ones are on a roll and are now over .500 at 7-6-0. Jered Walker and Rick Wood each scored for the Bisons. Oddly, each team scored a goal in the last minute of the 2nd period on a Lethbridge PP.

This series is a battle of two sides in desperate need of some wins. UBC answered the bell on home ice Friday night. I have to wonder what's up with Calgary this year.

BISONS WHIP COUGARS
... the gap is widening!

November 28, 2008


REGINA COUGARS 1
MANITOBA BISONS 4

[BOX SCORE] <> [RECAP] <> [GAME SUMMARY] <> [GAME SHEET]
[U OF M STORY] <> [U OF R HOCKEY PAGE]


I was at the Moose game on Friday night so I missed this one. My son has a game Saturday night so my attendance at that one is also in doubt. Maybe I'll make the 3rd period. One can get in for $2 and a contribution to Winnipeg Harvest. [STORY]

Anyhow, the Bisons built a lead (3-1) heading into the 3r dperiod and then were bailed out by goaltender Steve Christie, who made 17 saves in the 3rd period. Travis Kornelsen, Rick Wood, and Stephane Lenoski scored to give the Bisons the lead and then Jered Walker scored an empty-netter. Of note, Mike Hellyer was stopped on a 2nd period penalty shot.

The result leaves the Bisons 4 points ahead of Calgary, 5 points ahead of Regina, and 6 points ahead of UBC. All of those squads have 2 games in hand.

Elsewhere ...


CALGARY DINOSAURS 3

In a game where the power plays were working (2 goals each), Lethbridge took this one in OT. That's 5 straight wins for the 'Horns, which includes a 2 game sweep of Calgary 2 weeks ago.


ALBERTA GOLDEN BEARS 6
UBC THUNDERBIRDS 2

[BOX SCORE] <> [RECAP] <> [GAME SUMMARY] <> [GAME SHEET]

The Evil Monkeys rack up another big win. Despite being down, UBC only managed 5 shots in the 3rd period on home ice. Alberta is now within 2 points of idle Sask, with 3 games in hand.

BISONS DOWNED IN O.T.
... for a 3-point weekend

November 29, 2008


REGINA COUGARS 3
MANITOBA BISONS 2

IN OVERTIME
[BOX SCORE] <> [RECAP] <> [GAME SUMMARY] <> [GAME SHEET]
[U OF M STORY] <> [U OF R HOCKEY PAGE] <> [C.W. STORY]


I was at my son's game and never made it to the Max Bell until just after the puck had dropped for the 3rd period. At that point, it was 2-1 for the Cougars. The Bisons had the Cougars reeling for most of the 3rd period. However, few really good scoring chances occurred. Jered Walker tied the game and a later goal was waived off due to a quick whistle.

In OT the Bisons took some silly icing calls (a pet peeve of mine) and eventually Regina was able to generate a good chance from one and tallied the win.

The result brings the Cougars within 4 points of the Bisons entering the exam break. Had the Bisons won in OT they would have been 6 points ahead and highly unlikely in any danger of being caught by the puddy-tats.

The Herd next plays a non-conference tournament in Thunder Bay from December 27th to 30th. They are then in Saskatchewan January 9th and 10th before returning home for to play Regina yet again on January 16th and 17th.

The Bisons lined up like this:

Goal:
Christie (Lobb)

Defence:
Lindsay - Lenoski
Thiessen - Lamoureux
Rumsey - Brown

Forwards:
Walker - Hellyer - Wood
Howarth - Wild - Dudar
Cara - Benias - DeLaronde
Hotson - Kornelsen - Hunter

Scratches:
G: McHale
D: Workman, Spiller
F: Olafson, Beller, Waker, Mistelbacher

TBaytel Varsity Cup tournament

Tournament preview links: [CIS] ~ [U of M] ~ [L.U.]

The Bisons won this tournament last season with a 7-6 overtime victory over the host Lakehead team in the final. This tournament is a real grind. The four teams play a round-robin for 3 games in 3 days. The top two then play for the title.

The problem with winning the tournament last season was that the Bisons came off the grind on short rest when regular season play resumed, and had a severe new year hangover. At least this year, the way the calendar falls means that the Bisons and Huskies won't play again until they meet in Saskatown on January 9th.

LAKEHEAD THUNDERWOLVES
Record 11-3-2 (ranked 7th in CIS)

Check back at the Lakehead website for information on ordering pay-per-view webcasts of the games. Manitoba's schedule is like this:

HOSTS TAKE BISONS IN O.T.
... as schedule is shuffled due to weather conditions

December 27, 2008


LAKEHEAD THUNDERWOLVES 3
MANITOBA BISONS 2

IN OVERTIME
[GAME SUMMARY] <> [GAME SHEET] <> [U OF L STORY]

Due to travel problems both east and west, Laurier and Saskatchewan were unable to get to Thunder Bay on time to play on December 27th. Therefore, the entire schedule had to be revised. The Bisons were scheduled to play the afternoon game, which was cancelled. Instead, Laurier and Sask each get 1 point for a deemed tie and the Bisons tangled with the Thunderwolves.

The game was a penalty-filled affair. All Lakehead goals were scored on the PP. The Bisons were 0-for-9 on their PP chances, which basically cost them the game.

Bison goals were scored by Cole Hunter (who has discovered a scoring touch in his 3rd season here) and new arrival Greg Beller. Also making his debut for the Bisons was Tyler Dittmer from the Brandon Wheat Kings. Not dressed were goaltender Gavin McHale, d-man Myles Rumsey, and forwards Nick Hotson, Travis Kornelsen, Nolan Waker, and Kyle Howarth.

The Bisons received a point inj the standings for the overtime result.

ANOTHER LOSS TO THE HUSKIES
... berth in final is unlikely

December 28, 2008


MANITOBA BISONS 6
SASKATCHEWAN HUSKIES 7

[GAME SUMMARY] <> [GAME SHEET] <> [U OF L STORY]

The summary links show the final score as 7-3 for the Huskies. However, the story shows that the Bisons mounted a wild 3rd period comeback to within a goal before losing 7-6. The Bisons led 2-1 after the 1st period but then surrendered 6 goals in the 2nd period. The 3rd period summary is a mystery.

Combined with the result of the evening game, the Bisons must defeat Laurier, hope Sask loses in regulation time to Lakehead, and then win the plus-minus tie-breaker.

Manitoba's goal scorers were Greg Beller, Jared Walker, Calin Wild, Mark Olafson, Riley Dudar, and Nick Hotson.

It would appear that Ben Lobb saw his first action of the season in goal (shared with Steve Christie) and that Gavin McHale was not dressed. Myles Rumsey and KIp Workman did not dress on defence. The forwards sitting out were Terrance Delaronde, Nolan Waker, and Tyler Ditmer.

Lakehead now has two extra time victories in two matches. They are assured of a berth in the final. I suspect they may take it easy against Sask, but I hope not!

BISONS SCORE BIG WIN
... but still miss out on berth in the finals

December 29, 2008


MANITOBA BISONS 6
LAURIER GOLDEN HAWKS 3

[GAME SUMMARY] <> [GAME SHEET] <> [U OF L STORY] <> [U OF M STORY]

The Bisons finished the tournament in style with a 6-3 win over a nationally ranked team. Like I always say, however, nationally ranked teams from Ontario are not necessarily anything better than the average Canada West team. In any event, with a big win, a crazy loss, and an overtime loss (all against top 7 ranked treams), the Bisons have to be satsified with their performance. They didn't really need a 4th game in 4 days like they had last year.

Where the Bisons' bad 2nd period cost them the game against Sask, in this one they outscored Laurier 5-0 and outshot them 12-3 in the 2nd period.

Newcomer Greg Beller scored two more for the Bisons, showing that he is bound to become a nice second half addition to the team. Single goals went to Riley Dudar, Kyle Howarth, Mke Hellyer, and Rick Wood. Steve Christie was the winning goaltender.

Scratches were goaltender Gavin McHale, d-man Myles Rumsey, and forwards Terrance Delaronde, Nolan Waker, and Tyler Ditmer.

... and finally win their own tournament

December 30, 2008


LAKEHEAD THUNDERWOLVES 4
SASKATCHEWAN HUSKIES 3

That makes an amazing 4 wins in 4 games all by one goal.

They also selected a tournament all-star team, as indicated in the linked U of L story. Bison newcomer forward Greg Beller amd d-man Stephane Lenoski were named.

The regular season resumes January 9th and 10th when the Bisons visit Sask.

Buddy, Laurier played their backup, and our backup put the "weak" in "weaksauce" if Jeff MacDougald is in that game we win, and Manitoba loses. All top-10 teams are the same as a mid-range team if they play their backup, not to mention when they play without their most prolific goal scorer, Luke Girard didnt play, so dont say we're mediocre cause we lost without two of our best players

Manitoba and Sask also rotated their goaltenders since these were tournament games. I doubt that the game was played with more urgency by Manitoba then by Laurier.

Anyhow, from what I have seen the best OUA teams are the same general calibre as mid-range CW teams. Both Calgary and Manitoba have won the T-Bay tournament with .500 teams.

A crappy game to start the second half for the Herd. However, it is always hard to bring points back from Saskatown.

BISONS BOUNCE BACK IN SASKATOWN
... for a weekend split

January 10, 2009


MANITOBA BISONS 4
SASKATCHEWAN HUSKIES 2

[BOX SCORE] <> [RECAP] <> [GAME SUMMARY] <> [GAME SHEET]
[U OF M STORY] <> [U OF S STORY] <> [C.W. STORY]


After a Friday night loss, this was a big come-back win for the Bisons to salvage a road split. The Huskies are the perennial #2 team in the CW, on a 6 game conference win streak, are ranked #3 nationally, and are coming off being the runner-up in the T-Bay tourny. So a win over them is no small feat.

Bison goals were scored by Jon Cara (his 4th), Cole Hunter (who also scored on Friday and now has 8), Calin Wild (his 4th), and Jered Walker (into an empty net for his 7th). Steve Christie was the goalie of record.

Of note, the Bisons dressed 7 d-men and 11 forwards. I assume they have some injuries up front since they have an abundance of forwards right now. From the Friday night line-up, Nick Hotson (F) was replaced by A.J.Spiller (D).

Combined with the other results, Sask is now tied with Alberta atop the standings, one point ahead of Lethbridge. The Bisons are nestled into 4th place, safely ahead of the unwashed masses scrambling for the final playoff berths.

This is turning out to be a dream season for Lethbridge. That makes it 8 straight. And, they are but one point behind Sask and Alberta. However, I would suggest that they temper their enthusiasm. They were outshot 37-20 tonight and were outshot 38-21 last night, including 15-3 in the 3rd. The clearly owe their success to first year goalie Scott Bowles.


CALGARY DINOSAURS 2
ALBERTA GOLDEN BEARS 4

This one is a Saturday-Sunday home-and-home series and the Evil Monkeys took game 1 to pull into a first place tie with Sask, with games in hand. I suspect that the Evil Monkeys will have 1st place safely in hand once they make up their games in hand. Calgary is in a tough fight with Regina and UBC for the final 2 playoff berths.

SUNDAY NIGHT SPECIAL!


CALGARY DINOSAURS 2
ALBERTA GOLDEN BEARS 4

[BOX SCORE] <> [RECAP] <> [GAME SUMMARY] <> [GAME SHEET]

Same teams, same score. After getting off to a 2-0 lead in the 1st period, the Dinos were badly outplayed thereafter. The SOG were 15-4 for Alberta in the 2nd period as the Evil Monkeys tied it up. When it was over the Evil Monkeys had regained 1st place, 2 points ahead of Sask.

Here is how the home stretch looks in chart form:

He was injured in the first game he played in Thunder Bay. The Bisons have their first home game of the new year Friday. I don't know if he'll play or not.

WEEKEND PREVIEW

REGINA COUGARS (6-10-2: 14 points: 5th place)
MANITOBA BISONS (8-8-4: 20 points: 4th place)

January 16, 2009 at 7:00 PM at Max Bell Arena ~ RADIO: UMFM 101.5 [CLICK TO LISTEN]
January 17, 2009 at 7:00 PM at Max Bell Arena ~ Cargill Night

Campus radio has always done the football games. This year they are adding two men's and two women's hockey games to the mix, starting with the Friday night hockey game. Saturday's game won't be on radio but amongst other prizes a laptop will be given away.

The last time the Bisons played at home was against the Puddy-Tats at the end of November. I am anxious to see them after so long. Newcomers Greg Beller and Tyler Dittmer are additions of interest. Beller did very well in the Thunder Bay tournament and was a tournament all-star. Dittmer was injured in his first game and has not seen the ice since. I do not know his current status.

Although the Bisons and Banjo-Boys have split 4 games so far, both wins for the bad guys were OT/SO whilst the Bisons won their games convincingly, giving the Bisons a 6-4 edge in points. The Kittens would have a tough time catching the Bisons if they lose this series.

Since we are supposed to get an overdue break in the weather and since the Moose are away, this is an ideal weekend to see the Bisons live and in person.

HERD SHUT-OUT KITTENS
... for a stranglehold on a playoff berth


January 16, 2009


REGINA COUGARS 0
MANITOBA BISONS 2

[BOX SCORE] <> [RECAP] <> [GAME SUMMARY] <> [GAME SHEET]
[U OF M STORY] <> [U OF R HOCKEY SITE]


My plans to attend this one were scuttled due to my beloved wife's car troubles. I had a choice - leave her to freeze or attend the game. Heads it was, so I bailed her out.

Thankfully, this was the first time the Bisons had a hockey game on UMFM 101.5. So I was able to listen. The broadcast also included an interview with Stu Grimson, aka "The Grim Reaper", former Bison and NHL tough guy. He's now a lawyer in Nashville and is guest speaker at the upcoming Bison fundraiser.

David Brown and Calin scored for the Herd whilst Steve Christie racked up a shut-out. The result kept the Bisons in 4th place, but they are now within 2 points of 3rd place Lethbridge and 8 points ahead of 5th place Regina.

Saturday night's rematch is sponsored by Cargill. The grand prize give-away is a lap-top, which I would gladly claim.

One of Christie's saves.

The 'Horns were on a big-time roll. However, tehir technique of being badly outshot and being bailed out by their goaltender finally caught up with them. The Puppies outshot them 32-19 and so I guess 5-0 was likely a fair indication of the play. The Huskies jump 3 points aheda of Lethbridge with this result.


UBC THUNDERBIRDS 1
ALBERTA GOLDEN BEARS 6

[BOX SCORE] <> [RECAP] <> [GAME SUMMARY] <> [GAME SHEET]

Not to be outdone by the Huskies attempt to mark their territory, the Evil Monkeys went out and put the boots to the Tweety-Birds. I am somewhat surprised that UBC never brought their A-game. They are a point behind Calgary and 2 points back of Regina in the race for the final playoff berths and needed points. Road points in Edmontown are never easy. But 6-1? Sheesh.

Dittmer has a charley horse and should be in the lineup against UBC next week. The Bisons have the greatest depth up front in recent history. Beller is a great addition, Dittmer will be good. Waker is coming back from a broken collarbone. Dudar will be back soon as well. 17 forwards - all have something to contribute. The Bisons beat Regina 6-2 tonight and are looking very good.

BISONS BRING OUT THE BROOMS
... to sweep the kittens in convincing fashion


January 17, 2009


REGINA COUGARS 2
MANITOBA BISONS 6

[BOX SCORE] <> [RECAP] <> [GAME SUMMARY] <> [GAME SHEET]
[U OF M STORY] <> [U OF R HOCKEY SITE]


I finally got a chance to see the Bisons after the Christmas break and they looked very good, to say the least. The evening's results vaulted the Bisons into a 3rd place tie with Lethbridge (albeit with the 'Horns holding 2 games in hand) and a full 10 points ahead of 5th place Regina. I would venture to say that the four teams who will host the quarter-final and semi-final rounds are all but certain at this time.

Anyhow, the over-used cliche about a "balanced attack" certainly fits with the Herd. They turn over the four lines and when the plan works they have good pace and intensity, which they need to be effective against teams like Sask and Alberta. Nick Hotson (with 2) was the only Bison with multiple goals. The others came from Stewart Thiessen, Mike Hellyer, Mark Olafson, and Chris Benias. I thought Hotson had one of his stronger games. He also generated a chance while intercepting a Regina pass on a penalty kill.

Newcomer Greg Beller was a regular and showed he belonged. However, I believe he was the one who committed a turn-over which led to Regina's tying goal in the opening minute of the 2nd period. Tyler Dittmer was not in the Bison line-up, nor was he listed on the line-up card.

In an oddity, the Cougars pulled their goaltender when they were down 6-1 and went on the PP with 8+ minutes left. While they scored on that one, they did nothing similar thereafter to close the gap. After that goal the Bisons let backup goaltender Ben Lobb get his first game action in league play. He never gave up a goal, so chalk one up for the MMJHL!

This is how the teams lined up:
  • Manitoba Bisons:

    Goal:
    Christie, Lobb

    Defence:
    Rumsey - Lenoski
    Thiessen - Lamoureux
    Workman - Brown

    Forwards:
    Olafson - Wild - Beller
    Walker - Wood - Hellyer
    Hotson - Kornelsen - Hunter
    Howarth - Benias - Delaronde

    Scratches:
    McHale (G), Spiller (D), Dudar (F), Waker (F), Lindsay (D), Cara (F), Mistelbacher (F)

    Regina Cougars:

    Goal:
    Hilton (Ward)

    Defence:
    Cruse - Chapman
    Rintoul - McPherson
    Bender - Thoring

    Forwards:
    Bohemier - Pearpoint - Ross
    Benjamin - Scott - Smith
    Sawka - Bru - Shultz
    Stengler - Kodman - Johnstone

This very one-sided sweep brings the 'Horns crashing back to reality. Rather the scrapping it our for first, they now find themselves tied with Manitoba for 3rd place. Scott Bowles (the goaltender responsible for their record) was pulled after giving up 6 goals in 2 periods. Lethbridge has a bye next week and will need it to regroup.


UBC THUNDERBIRDS 0

I guess the Evil Monkeys are trying to keep up with Joneses, in this case the Huskies. While the Huskies were wiping the floor with Lethbridge, Alberta dismantled the Tweety-Birds for the second night in a row. I again have to wonder how UBC can be so badly beaten when they desperately need points in their 3-way race with Regina and Calgary. I listened to the game on the U of A weblink here:

BTW, there was an updated link from the CIS site to the game story for the Friday game in this series. [LINK]
