Bisons Home Exhibition Opener

WEEKEND PREVIEW



MOUNT ROYAL COUGARS (3-0-0)
MANITOBA BISONS (3-2-0)

Friday, September 16th, 7:00 p.m. CDT @ Max Bell Arena, U of M
Saturday, September 17th, 2:30 p.m. CDT @ Max Bell Arena, U of M

I know it's "only exhibition" but to me there is something special about the first glimpse of hockey in a new season and to actually see the names who are currently just a list of stats. Unfortunately there is not a lot of media information or stories for the CW exhibitions, not even from the schools and conferences. In fact, only Regina has a 2011-12 roster posted. So I'll do my best.

The Bisons went 3-2-0 in a tour of Central Europe, playing professional teams, and took a tournament title in Ritten, Italy. It would appear that returnees Blair Macaulay and Tyler Dittmer have the scoring touch, although complete summaries for all games were not made available. I'll be interested to see just how the Bisons line up this weekend. They have a stacked defence and I would think that they may have to move one or more of them up front. I also don't know what to expect from the goaltending situation. I suspect all three (Caligiuri, Friesen, and Deckert) will see plenty of action over the next two weekends.

The Blue Cougars are in their final season of play in the ACAC. Mount Royal College became Mount Royal University a couple of years back and this off-season gained admittance to the Canada West conference. They won the ACAC title last year. While the ACAC was whitewashed in non-conference games against CW teams last season, the Blue Cougars managed to sweep the H0rny Ones last weekend.

The Bisons have not played an ACAC team since January 2007, when they defeated the NAIT Ooks 9-2 and 3-2. In January 2006 the Bisons beat the SAIT Trojans 5-1 and 5-2.

The Brock Badgers are joining the Watermelonheads for a three team tournament in Regina. Last year Brock came here and were beaten 6-2 and 8-1. Will they meet with more success in a province which lacks indoor plumbing? Let's wait and see.

Last weekend the Banjo-Dogs beat the Banjo-Cats in overtime, and then the `Cats trimmed Briercrest of the ACAC.

The Banjo-Dogs announced a mobile website, which is attend I hope continues fast. They also have a season preview at The Sheaf. They have not added much this year. However, they have had loads of "name" recruits the past two seasons yet have gotten worse. On paper, they should have been challenging for a national title. Instead, they had to scrape a playoff berth. Also, two players eligible to play this year have vacated the Dog House. Steve DaSilva and Zach Sim will play senior hockey instead. That struck me as very odd.


ALBERTA GOLDEN BEARS (2-0-0)
NAIT OOKS (0-0-0)


The cuddly little Stuffed Owls take on their cross-town rivals the Evil Monkeys in a home-and-home series. In theory, this is a mismatch. These cross-town rivals have not met often. The ACAC teams usually play more games against Lethbridge and Regina. Anyhow, after sweeping the Dinos last weekend the Primates seem ready to go. South Campus Sports has a wrap-up story on last week's series and on the other weekend activity.


CALGARY DINOS (0-1-1)
CALGARY FLAMES (1-1-1)


In a weekend where everybody is facing a team from another league, the Dinos draw the toughest league, albeit by playing a rookie team. The game is expected to draw a large crowd to the U of C. Maybe next year we'll see Bisons v Jets. The game is previewed at the U of C Site. The Dinos' season is previewed and last weekend's games are reviewed at The Gauntlet.


THOMPSON RIVERS WOLFPACK (0-0-0)
UBC THUNDERBIRDS (0-0-0)


The game that would have been the first game betwen a BCIHL team and a CW team has been deleted from the schedule. UBC has added an extra game against SAIT for Sept 23rd and a game against the Abbotsford Heat (AHL) on Sept 25th. UBC Schedule.

Herd beats Mount Royal

September 16, 2011

HERD WINS EXHIBITION HOME OPENER


MOUNT ROYAL COUGARS 1
MANITOBA BISONS 3


As I post there is no game story posted and only the score is listed on the Bison Schedule. It seems that the CW teams are not even utilizing LeagueStat for the exhibition games. I was at the game and here is how they lined up:

Manitoba Bisons

Goal:
1 Caligiuri, 35 Deckert (3rd period)

Defence:
4 Schappert - 5 Crowley
3 Rumsey - 15 Mealy
2 Erb - 20 Lockerby

Forwards:
11 Hellyer - 18 DuVal - 9 Lowry
23 Dittmer - 16 Walker - 26 Macaulay
25 Prokop - 17 Benias - 21 Cowan
22 Bestland - 24 Davis - 6 Flynn

Scratches:
10 Rowinski (F), 12 Pawluk (F), 14 Lauder (F)
24 Bobbee (D), 27 Schmidt (D), 34 Friesen (G)

Mount Royal Cougars

Goal:
30 Cote (33 Flette)

Defence:
18 Haber - 15 Glass
26 Beech - 20 Tremerra
2 Moir - 5 Scott

Forwards:
7 S Muchalla - 11 V Muchalla - 16 Galbraith
12 Eskesen - 13 Geddes - 28 Knopf
24 Roberts - 27 Goss - 9 Brown
8 Turnbull - 22 MacDonald - 10 Barrett

The first period was all Bisons. They out-shot MRU 18-5 and also rang a couple off the posts. However, they could not score until Jered Walker notched a shorthanded goal, with assists to Blair Macaulay and Dane Crowley. There was a constant parade of cheap penalties which hampered the flow of the game.

The tight calls continued in the second period where it seemed all contact led to a PP. The shots were more even, at 9-7 for the Bisons. After being stymied in the opener, perhaps the Bisons felt snake-bit. Instead of launching a barrage of shots they sometimes got too cute and tried to deek instead of shoot in a couple of 2-on-1 situations. Anyhow, the Cougars never came close to scoring. The Herd led 1-0 after two.

Jesse Deckert replaced Joe Caligiuri in the Bison net to start the third period. Caligiuri stopped all 12 shots he faced on the night. It was hard to evaluate him because there were really not many tough saves amongst them.

The Bisons had the puck for most of the third period, except during the PPs. It took 10 minutes for Jeremy Schappert to score on a PP, with assists to Chris Benias and Matthew Lowry.

The only goal for the Cougars came after a referee's error. (They had two of them, also!) The Bisons had almost killed a penalty and the puck was coming out of their end. A Bison player was about to step through the opened gate to his bench when a Cougar gave him a cheap shot from behind. A scuffle ensued and in the end two Cougars got two minutes each and for the Bisons it was 2 minutes for Hellyer and 4 minutes for Crowley. However, the referees only put Crowley's 4 minutes on the board and deemed that the one penalty offset the two. Of course, since the Bisons got 6 minutes and the Cougars got 4, the net ought to have been 2 minutes of PP to the Cougars. As a result, the Cougars had a brief two man advantage during which they scored their only goal, by Vinny Muchalla with assists to the d-pair of Haber and Glass.

The Bisons outshot the Cougars 10-8 in the third period, and 37-20 on the night.

The Bisons have yet to play a CIS team but are now 4-2-0 in the pre-season. MRU falls to 3-1-0.

The rematch goes Saturday at 2:30 p.m. at the Max Bell Arena. Tickets are reduced for the weekend, only $5 a head. Hopefully the Bisons will trash Sask in the 1:00 p.m. homecoming football game so that I can catch some of the hockey as well.

OUT OF TOWN SCOREBOARD:


ALBERTA GOLDEN BEARS 1
NAIT OOKS 0


Neither the Alberta nor the NAIT sites have a game story nor summary posted. This Edmontown derby switches to the U of A Saturday as the Evil Monkeys seek a sweep of the cuddly little Stuffed Owls. The Monkeys are now 3-0-0 and the Ooks are 0-1-0.


CALGARY FLAMES 4
CALGARY DINOS 0

|> [CW Story] : [U of C Story] : [Boxscore]

The Phlegms were the winners of this Calgary derby. The LeagueStat summary was not operable during the game but I see that it was brought up this morning. The Dinos raised $20,000 through the game. In the Dinos' crowded goal, the game was split between returnees Kris Lazaruk and Dustin Butler.


BROCK BADGERS 5
SASKATCHEWAN HUSKIES 3

|> [BU Story]

This was the opener of a 3-team tournament in Regina. However, the information comes from the Brock site. There is nothing yet on the Regina nor the Sask. sites. After last year's season of uneven play, I was anxious to see what the Banjo-Mutts would look like this year. I know how week Brock looked when they faced the Bisons. Maybe they are better. Or maybe Sask never laid on the body. Anyhow, we'll see how the remaining round-robin games go Saturday and Sunday. Former Winnipeg Blue Patrick Henderson scored for Brock. And Brandon native Kurt Jory (he who suffered a severe neck laceration 2 years ago) was the winning goaltender.

NEXT UP:

Sept 17th Mount Royal (ACAC) at Manitoba
Sept 17th Brock (OUA) at Regina (Regina Tournament)
Sept 17th Alberta at NAIT (ACAC)
Sept 18th Saskatchewan at Regina (Regina Tournament)

Sept 20th Calgary at Acadia (AUS)
Sept 21st Calgary at St. Francis-Xavier (AUS)

Bisons Blow Lead, Lose in Shoot-Out

September 17-18, 2011

BISONS TEST OUT NEW O.T. RULES


MOUNT ROYAL COUGARS 4
MANITOBA BISONS 3

(in shootout)

Once again, only the score is listed on the Bison Schedule. I was at the homecoming football game Saturday afternoon and once that was over checked out the 3rd period of this game. Here's the 3rd period line-up:

Manitoba Bisons

Goal:
34 Friesen (either Caligiuri or Deckert played)

Defence:
4 Schappert - 5 Crowley
3 Rumsey - 15 Mealy
2 Erb - 6 Flynn - 20 Lockerby

Forwards:
25 Prokop - 21 Cowan - 12 Pawluk
11 Hellyer - 17 Benias - 9 Lowry
23 Dittmer - 16 Walker - 26 Macaulay
22 Bestland - 24 Davis - 14 Lauder

Scratches:
10 Rowinski (F), 18 DuVal (F)
24 Bobbee (D), 27 Schmidt (D)

Mount Royal Cougars

Goal:
33 Flette (30 Cote)

Defence:
4 Strong - 26 Beech
3 Bell - 20 Tremerra
18 Haber - 15 Glass

Forwards:
11 V Muchalla - 16 Galbraith - 7 S Muchalla
8 Turnbull - 13 Geddes - 12 Eskesen
9 Brown - 27 Goss - 22 MacDonald
10 Barrett - 17 Hewitt - 24 Roberts

The Bisons had a 3-1 lead and a 24-9 lead in shots on goal when I arrived. The Cougars turned things around in the 3rd, scoring after just 28 seconds (by Brown) then tied it half-way through (by Hewett). The Bisons were stuck in neutral, being outshot 8-4 and taking loads of penalties.

The teams then played the new OT rules, going scoreless for 5 minutes of 4-on-4 and 5 more minutes of 3-on-3. Despite being short-handed, the Bisons reasserted control in the OT and outshot MRU 6-4. In the shootout Dittmer, Lowry, Cowan, and Macaulay were all unsuccessful in a 1-0 loss. The Bisons are now 4-2-1 and the Blue Cougars are 4-1-0.

All-in-all, I believe the Blue Cougars look like a low-end CW team. The Bisons were unable to put them away and when that happens points are lost. That happened last season with UBC, Regina, and Lethbridge on occasion.

The Green Cougars are in town next weekend for games Friday at 7:00 p.m. and Saturday at 2:30 p.m.

OUT OF TOWN SCOREBOARD:


NAIT OOKS 1
ALBERTA GOLDEN BEARS 5

|> [Alberta Report]

The Evil Monkeys swept the series and are now 4-0-0. The Stuffed Owls are 0-2-0.


BROCK BADGERS 1
REGINA COUGARS 6

|> [BU Story]


SASKATCHEWAN HUSKIES 3
REGINA COUGARS 1


Neither the Regina nor the Sask. sites have anything but the score. Since all 3 teams went 1-1 I assume that the tournament title was decided by goals for/against. Regina was 7-4 (+3), Sask. was 6-6 (0), and Brock was 6-9 (-3). On the pr-season, Regina is 2-1-1, Sask. is 2-1, and Brock is 1-1-0. Brock hosts Guelph and Saint Mary's in their tournament next weekend.

NEXT UP:

Sept 20th Calgary at Acadia (AUS)
Sept 21st Calgary at St. Francis-Xavier (AUS)

Sept 23rd Calgary at UNB (AUS)
Sept 23rd Regina at Manitoba
Sept 23rd Mount Royal (ACAC) v Lethbridge (Edmontown Tournament)
Sept 23rd Saskatchewan at Alberta (Edmontown Tournament)
Sept 23rd SAIT (ACAC) at UBC
Sept 24th Calgary at UNB (AUS)
Sept 24th Regina at Manitoba
Sept 24th Lethbridge v Saskatchewan (Edmontown Tournament)
Sept 24th Mount Royal (ACAC) at Alberta (Edmontown Tournament)

WEEKEND PREVIEW



REGINA COUGARS (2-1-1)
MANITOBA BISONS (4-2-1)

Friday, September 23rd, 7:00 p.m. CDT @ Max Bell Arena, U of M
Saturday, September 24th, 2:30 p.m. CDT @ Max Bell Arena, U of M

This is the final tune-up for the Herd before they start the season with a pair of road-trips and a bye week. Their next home games will be October 21st and 22nd, against these same Banjo-Cats.

The Bison site needs updating. They have no preview story up and the roster page has the 2010-11 roster, although some names have been deleted. The Regina site was updated a while back, in fact they were the first in the conference to do so. On a positive note, the above link for LeagueStat Daily Updates has the Bison game cued up for live updates.

I'll be anxious to see how the Bison goaltending situation is resolved. Last weekend they never saw a lot of rubber.

On paper, the Feline Watermelonheads appear to be the same calibre as last year. Thus far Regina has beaten Briercrest (ACAC) and Brock (OUA) and lost twice (once in a shoot-out) to their hillbilly brethren Banjo-Mutts. That all sounds fairly normal, so I'll want to see what they look like on the ice.

ELSEWHERE:

MOUNT ROYAL COUGARS
(4-1-0)
LETHBRIDGE PRONGHORNS (2-0-0)

The four sides are in Edmontown for a 4-team tournament. Mount Royal and Lethbridge play the first game and Sask play the Evil Monkeys in the nightcap. The U of A site lacks any preview story. However, South Campus Sports reports that they will play world junior exhibition games against Denmark (twice) and the Czech Republic. I wonder who Team Canada will face? They have a losing streak going against CW teams. The Lethbridge site now has their updated roster.


SAIT TROJANS (0-1-0)
UBC THUNDERBIRDS (0-0-0)

|> [UBC Preview]

This game was added to make for a weekend double-header. It is UBC's pre-season debut. They canceled a game against Thompson Rivers of the BCIHL from last weekend. SAIT lost to Mount Royal in last year's ACAC championship series. UBC will play the Abbotsford Heat of the AHL on Sunday.


CALGARY DINOS (1-2-2)
UNB VARSITY REDS (1-0-0)


The Dinos are on an Atlantic Tour and have thus far split a pair of games. This is a rematch from last year's nationals, when UNB won on a last second goal then went on to win the tournament. Here's what happened during the week:

Cougars 1 Bisons 0

September 23, 2011

BISOMS STYMIED BY HOT GOALTENDER


REGINA COUGARS 1
MANITOBA BISONS 0


|> [U of M Story] : [LS Summary]
|> [LS Rosters : [LS Statistics]


This one was simple to analyze: The Bisons bombarded the Banjo-Cats' net with 49, yes FORTY-NINE, shots and rookie goaltender Lucas Gore stopped them all.

The first two periods were penalty-filled and as a result the game had no flow. It was one of those whistle-blowing contests with two referees. On one such PP mid-way through the 1st period, a point shot from Russ Nielson floated past Bison starter Jesse Deckert, and was possibly deflected in mid-air on its path.

Bison d-man Travis Mealy got 5 and a game for a hit from behind on Lucas Isley, who seemed quite hurt on the play. It was not a flush on cross-check variety, but a shoulder check delivered at an angle.

The Bisons had carried the first two periods (leading 23-13 on the shot clock) but it was the 3rd period in which they ran rampant with a 26-5 edge in shots. The Bisons closed the period on the PP and also pulled the goaltender for a 2-man advantage. They generated some excellent scoring chances yet failed to score. As Danny Gallivan would have said, Gore made an "enormous save" on a one-timer by Jeremy Schappert as he stuck out his glove in "rapier-like fashion".

Here is how they lined up:

Manitoba Bisons

Goal:
35 Deckert, 34 Friesen (mid 2nd period)

Defence:
4 Schappert - 5 Crowley
3 Rumsey - 15 Mealy
2 Erb - 27 Schmidt

Forwards:
23 Dittmer - 16 Walker - 26 Macaulay
11 Hellyer - 17 Benias - 9 Lowry
20 Lockerby - 25 Prokop - 21 Cowan
22 Bestland - 29 Davis - 6 Flynn

Scratches:
10 Rowinski (F), 12 Pawluk (F), 14 Lauder (F)
24 Bobbee (D), 18 DuVal (F), 1 Caligiuri (G)

Regina Cougars

Goal:
30 Gore (1 Whitten)

Defence:
4 Sonntag - 8 Fossum
18 Nielsen - 7 Schneider
25 McPherson - 15 Tendler

Forwards:
21 Bhungal - 22 Hunter - 20 Sawka
10 Henry - 29 Srueby - 16 Zubko
12 Brennan - 14 Cuthbert - 24 Leffler
17 Selinger - 9 Penny - 11 Isley

Bisons 5 Cougars 4 (SO)

September 24, 2011

BISONS WRAP PRE-SEASON WITH A SPLIT


REGINA COUGARS 4
MANITOBA BISONS 5

(in shoot-out)
|> [U of M Story] : [U of R Story] : [LS Summary]
|> [LS Rosters : [LS Statistics]


When the Bisons bombarded the Feline Hillbillies with 49 shots on Friday one had to wonder what they could do for an encore. Simple: Up that to 56!

The 1st period was very one-sided, 22-6 in shots, yet 0-0 on the scoreboard.

The Bisons continued their dominance in the 2nd period and eventually claimed a 2-0 lead on goals from Mike Hellyer (short-haneded) and Matthew Lowry (power play). It seemed a revenge butt-kicking was well underway. However, Regina responded with some mid-period pressure and Carter Selinger on a screen shot made it 2-1. Partik Bhungal tied it shortly afterwards when Joe Caligiuri allowed one to slip through the 5-hole. After two it was 2-2, though shots were 37-16.

The Banjo-Cats then appeared to be prepared for a sweep when they vaulted into the lead with two goals. Lucas Isley scored 34 seconds into the 3rd period and then Selinger, with his second, made it 4-2 3 minutes later. Tyler Dittmer then popped in two of his own. The last was scored with under 5 minutes left when he was knocked onto the seat of his pants in the slot.

The 4-on-4 and 3-on-3 overtime stanzas solved nothing, although the Bisons rang a couple of goalposts. In the shoot-out Jeremy Schappert scored, Dittmer hit a post, and Blair Macaulay scored to give the Bisons a 5-4 win.

Of note, the Bisons played 3 men short and Regina was one man short. Mike Hellyer also limped off the ice at the end of the 2nd period after sliding into the boards, but he played the 3rd. IMO, the Bisons should keep all their players for this reason. I believe they only have 26 guys in camp. A mid-season recruit of a scoring centre would also be a welcome addition.

I am not sure how the Bison goaltending will pan out. It seems Caligiuri is #1 because he got a full game whilst Friesen and Deckert split the other. So far they have not rally been tested. Caligiuri let in a couple of soft ones but he seems to have the best potential. I could see them all getting some work until one establishes himself as the go-to guy.

In two weekends the Bisons have shown that they can rack up shots but now must learn to turn that into comfortable leads.

Here is how they lined up:

Manitoba Bisons

Goal:
1 Caligiuri (35 Deckert)

Defence:
4 Schappert - 5 Crowley
2 Erb - 20 Lockerby
27 Schmidt - Flynn

Forwards:
23 Dittmer - 21 Cowan - 26 Macaulay
11 Hellyer - 17 Benias - 9 Lowry
25 Prokop - 29 Davis - 14 Lauder

Scratches:
3 Rumsey (D), 10 Rowinski (F), 12 Pawluk (F)
15 Mealy (D), 16 Walker (F), 18 DuVal (F)
22 Bestland (D/F), 24 Bobbee (D), 34 Friesen (G)

Regina Cougars

Goal:
1 Whitten (30 Gore)

Defence:
7 Schneider - 18 Nielsen
4 Sonntag - 8 Fossum
15 Tendler - 25 McPherson

Forwards:
17 Selinger - 29 Strueby - 13 Appleyard
10 Henry - 16 Zubko - 29 Strueby*
11 Isley - 14 Cuthbert - 24 Leffler
22 Hunter - 9 Penny - 21 Bhungal

Scratches:
2 Kot (D), 5 Reeve (D), 6 Sawa (F), 12 Brennan (F)
19 Delaronde (F), 20 Sawka (F), 23 Hunter (F)

OUT OF TOWN SCOREBOARD:


CALGARY DINOS 0
UNB VARSITY REDS 2

|> [UNB Game 1 Story] : [UNB Game 2 Story]

UNB has posted game stories about their two game sweep of the Dinos. The 1-2-1 roadtrip through the best of the AUS reflects fairly well on the Dinos. Since their pre-season schedule included the Evil Monkeys, the Calgary Flames rookies, SFX, Acadia, and the Squirrels, they get the award for toughest pre-season schedule in the CIS. The Dinos did not mount much offence, being outshot 30-14 on Friday and scoring only 5 goals in 4 games. They, too, will have to decide on who to start in goal since they have three credible goaltenders in camp. They host the Herd next Friday and Saturday.


LETHBRIDGE PRONGHORNS 1
SASKATCHEWAN HUSKIES 5



MOUNT ROYAL COUGARS 2
ALBERTA GOLDEN BEARS 4


|> [U of A Story] : [U of A Tournament Story]


The results give the Banjo-Mutts the tournament title with 4 points, followed by the Evil Monkeys with 3 points, MRU with 2 points, and the viagra-less H0rny Ones whitewashed. The stats were not uploaded to LeagueStats so all we have is the U of A story. I'd like to know if the MRU-Alberta game was like the Bison-MRU games. IAE, it looks like Sask is having a good pre-season and Lethbridge is having a lousy one. And those two will meet to open the season. MRU will now turn to ACAC opposition for a final season, and Alberta has a bye week.


SAIT TROJANS 0
UBC THUNDERBIRDS 5

|> [UBC Story]

This result makes for a clean sweep, just as UBC achieved last year against the Condoms. I wonder why UBC is having back-to-back weekends of 3 games in 3 days for a pre-season schedule.

STANDING SUMMARY:

Here is the cumulative pre-season/exhibition/non-conference record for each team, with the record against CW teams in brackets. I included MRU because they are joining the CW next year and have played 6 games against CW teams, albeit 3 times against the H0rny Ones. Thus far most games have been against teams from other leagues, including the ACAC, OUA, AUS, European pros, and the NHL. By next weekend we'll be able to add the AHL and NCAA to the list. Therefore, the relative records of the teams may be more reflective of the quality of their opponents than anything else. Read what you will into the standings!

Code:
Alberta ........ 5-0-1 (2-0-1)
Manitoba ....... 5-3-1 (1-1-0)
Mount Royal .... 5-2-0 (4-2-0)
Saskatchewan ... 4-1-0 (4-0-0)
Regina ......... 3-1-2 (1-1-2)
UBC ............ 2-0-0 (0-0-0)
Calgary ........ 1-4-2 (0-1-1)
Lethbridge ..... 0-4-0 (0-1-0)
NEXT UP:

Non-conference games:
Sept 25th Abbotsford (AHL) v UBC (at South Surrey)
Oct 1st UBC at Nebraska-Omaha (NCAA)
Oct 1st Regina at North Dakota (NCAA)
Oct 2nd UBC at Minnesota (NCAA)
Oct 2nd Regina at Bemidji (NCAA)
Oct 3rd UBC at Minnesota-Mankato (NCAA)

Conference games:
Sept 30th Manitoba at Calgary
Sept 30th Saskatchewan at Lethbridge
Oct 1st Manitoba at Calgary
Oct 1st Saskatchewan at Lethbridge

questions from the preseason!
Holley and others
I have often wondered what things are considered in making up the preseason schedule?
for example
Calgary does the tour albeit because they need to reciprocate the UNB red flamers for their trip out here last year....but to make it work they played 4 games in five nights ( for extra $) throw in the Cowboy Flames which is then 6 in 7 or 8 nights and then back to face our herd on friday saturday...you call it the best or toughest preseason in the CIS..... no fatigue to start the year??? any injuries playing who cares games versus opponents trying to cream you....what about school? they have to go to school there dont they? they have a couple of new guys hood and freezee who joined then for their trip straight from rookie camps....no school for them last week cuz they were on the freddie beach tour and also missed the fist three weeks as well. So start from scratch starting monday 4 weeks behind??
or does school start in october in calgary?
leth brige essentially will play MRU three in a row and now the U of S three in a row? ?? imagination lacking here
UBC gets no CW prep?? they should!!!! instead they play a decent ACAC team and are undefeated....surely the talk of wreck beach.....whoopeee, and then a three day NCAA tour and travel there and back back only to have a short week to get into canada west for a real opponent?? preparation?
ours was good and well planned but look at the non dressed guys on saturday night??? hurt or resting?? european adventure taking its toll?? will we have 20 for our road trip to cowtown, hope so cuz they will be dead! but we might not have our A team again at the start of the year??
regina????alot of new players who are learning to stand around and watch their goalie get peppered again...low percentage shots?!@#!... how did it work last year...use the preseason to take it up a notch not trap more????
sask always plays regina and edmonton lethbridge or calgary every year ....BORING who knows how they are doing ?? alberta pounded calgary before they left but never left edmonton except for one game, can they play on the road ...unbeatable as usual at home...but still waiting on three guys from the pros....again school not an issue...waiting on the guys in pro...like they are in a different league! they are beauties
CW tooo close to call this year cuz again everyone doing some weird stuff in preseason?! Bison looked good! hope for great year from them!

It is up to each team. Some teams have bigger budgets and get some traveling in. Others just want it as cheap as possible.

In the case of the Dinos, the game against the Flames rookies made them a bundle of cash. The Bisons would love to play the Jets rookies next year for the same reason. Back when I was a student I recall them having a tournament between Jets Blue, Jets White, and the Bisons.

UBC never travels, except to tour Minnesota-area teams each year. Lethbridge, Calgary, and Manitoba have made similar trips most years. I do not recall Sask or Alberta going the NCAA route in recent years.

Weekend Preview: Bisons @ Dinos

WEEKEND PREVIEW



MANITOBA BISONS (5-3-1)
CALGARY DINOS (1-4-2)

Friday, September 30th, 8:00 p.m. CDT @ Calgary
Saturday, October 1st 8:00 p.m. CDT @ Calgary


MANITOBA LINKS: [Team Site] : [LS Roster] : [LS Schedule/Results] : [U of M Preview]
CALGARY LINKS: [Team Site] : [LS Roster] : [LS Schedule/Results] : [U of C Preview]
OTHER LINKS: [CIS Site] : [CW Site] : [LS Daily - Live Updates]
OTHER STORIES: [CW Preview] : [U of M CW Preview] : [Bison Captains] : [Dinos Additions]

The regular season curtain-raiser is a bit of a marquee match-up. The Dinos went to the nationals in 2011, and the Bisons in 2010. Both went as conference runners-up behind the Evil Monkeys. In the above-cited links, reference is made to a coaches' poll in which Calgary goes in rated #2 in the conference and Manitoba is #3. (They are behind #1 Alberta and ahead of #4 Saskatchewan.)

Each side has a competition in net with three capable goaltenders. The Bisons, however, lost their #1 (Steve Christie) and the competition is to select a replacement. Calgary's #1 (Butler), however, is back and being challenged. Healthy competition or potential locker-room divisiveness? We'll see.

The Dinos also have 3 last-minute recruits. Reid Jorgensen has decided to return for a 5th season. Newcomers are defenceman Teigan Zahn and forward Randy McKnaught. The Dinos' links have their backgrounds.

The teams also had unique pre-season schedules. The Bisons went to Europe and the Dinos went to the Maritmes. Against CW teams, the Bisons badly outshot Regina in two games but only gained a split. Meanwhile the Dinos were swept by the Evil Monkeys, getting whupped once and losing a shoot-out in the other.

From the pre-season results it would appear that both teams are similar to last year. They will be waiting for a #1 goaltender to emerge and to find consistent scoring touch.

ELSEWHERE:


SASKATCHEWAN HUSKIES (4-1-0)
LETHBRIDGE PRONGHORNS (0-4-0)

|> [Live Video : [U of S Preview] : [U of S CW Preview] : [U of L Preview

The Banjo-Mutts are a bit of an enigma. On paper they should have been challenging the Evil Monkeys for 1st place. Instead they were lucky to get 3rd place. In pre-season they did beat Regina twice, Alberta, and Lethbridge. But they did lose to Brock. But Lethbridge lost three times to Mount Royal.



REGINA COUGARS (3-1-2)
NORTH DAKOTA FIGHTING SIOUX (0-0-0)
BEMIDJI STATE BEAVERS (0-0-0)


The Banjo-Cats will play at UND on Saturday and at Bemidji on Sunday.


UBC THUNDERBIRDS (2-1-0)
NEBRASKA-OMAHA MUSTANGS (0-0-0)
MINNESOTA GOLDEN GOPHERS (0-0-0)
MINNESOTA STATE - MANKATO MUSTANGS (0-0-0)


UBC has their annual southern junket through the state of Minnesota. Saturday at Nebraska-Omaha, Sunday at Minnesota, and Monday at Minnesota St.-Mankato.

Also, UBC were defeated 3-1 by the Abbotsford Heat last Sunday. I have no links for that game.

CALGARY DINOS 0


|> [Dinos Story - at U of M Site] : [LS Summary] : [CIS Boxscore]
|> [CW Friday Recap] : [TSN Story]


This was one big road win for the Herd. The highly-touted Dinos were stifled by the Bison D (which held them to two shots in the 1st period) and Joe Caligiuri (who made 25 saves on the night).

I cannot tell what the lines were but it was the starting unit (Dittmer-Walker-Macaulay up front, Schappert-Crowley on D) that accounted for both goals. Jered Walker scored a PP goal in the 1st period and Blair Macaulay got the insurance goal on a 3rd period power play.

Bison scratches were Deckert (G), Bobbee (D), Schmidt (D), Rowinski (F), and DuVal (F).

OUT OF TOWN SCOREBOARD:


SASKATCHEWAN HUSKIES 5

The Banjo-Mutts dominated this one on the shot clock (42-22) yet the H0rny Ones led 1-0 after the 1st period. Shots were turned into goals when the Mutts scored three times in the first 5 minutes of the 2nd period. The U of L put out a pretty good game story.

“We go into every year with the goal of competing for a conference championship, but our focus will just be one game at a time,” said Sirant, whose team hits the road to face the Calgary Dinos Friday and Saturday. “It’s a tough conference, a lot of parity. There’s a number of teams this year that have a legitimate shot at winning the conference, and we’d like to include ourselves among that group.”

Bisons 2 Dinos 0 (yet again!)

October 1, 2011

WHAT KILLED THE DINOSAURS? THE BISON "D"!


MANITOBA BISONS 2
CALGARY DINOS 0


|> [Dinos Story - at U of M Site] : [LS Summary] : [CIS Boxscore]
|> [CW Saturday Recap] : [CIS Saturday Round-up]


Same teams, same place, same score.

The Bisons iced the same line-up as used in Friday's game. Calgary switched goaltenders, giving Kris Lazaruk the start.

The game was scoreless until Chris Benias scored 15 minutes into the 2nd period on a PP. Yes, Benias is getting PP time this year. It looks like he was centering Mike Hellyer and Matt Lowry.

Jered Walker's 3rd period goal provided the Herd with all the insurance they would need.

Of note, the Dinos were held to a grand total of TWO shots on goal in the 2nd period, and 21 on the night.

The Dino Story cited states that this was Calgary's first regulation sweep at home since the Bisons did it to them three years ago. Now I have to wonder when was the last team a CW team was shut-out twice on a weekend at home.

After a bye next weekend, the Bisons will visit the Evil MOnkeys October 14th and 15th and then host Regina October 21st and 22nd.

There are a lot of new pictures added at the various links. It is good to see that Calgary have gone back to their dinosaur logo, albeit in a new design.

Caligiuri stopped this one.
Schappert playing some D.
Benias got a goal!

SASKATCHEWAN HUSKIES 3

(suspended after two periods)
|> [U of L Story - at U of S] : [LS Summary] : [No CIS Boxscore]


This game came to one unique conclusion. The zamboni was cleaning the ice during the second intermission when it sprang a leak and drained some sort of fluid all over the ice, rendering it unplayable. The CW will have to find space to conclude the 3rd period, at which time the results and statistics will be added. In any event, 3 second period goals gave the Banjo-Mutts a convincing lead. They appeared well on their way to a road sweep of their own.


REGINA COUGARS 1
NORTH DAKOTA FIGHTING SIOUX 8

|> [UND Story] : [Boxscore] : [Regina Site]

UND scored on almost 50% of heir shots on goal in the 1st period en route to a 5-0 lead. The Banjo-Cats then replaced A.J. Whiffen with Lucas Gore in net and the game calmed down. The Injuns managed to outshoot the Kittens 47-15. One has to wonder if being grossly outshout will be a Regina trademark this year. They are now 3-2-2 in the pre-season.


UBC THUNDERBIRDS 1
NEBRASKA-OMAHA MAVERICKS 4

|> [UNO Story] : [Boxscore - pdf] : [UBC Tour Preview]

The Tweety-Birds were evidently outplayed in this game, outshot 37-18 on the night. It was 1-1 after one period but UNO pulled away in the 2nd and 3rd periods. UBC falls to 2-2-0 in the pre-season.

UBC has a new look.

Oct 7th-8th Calgary at UBC : [CITR Audio]

OUT EAST:

The AUS has yet to start its season and there was only one game in the OUA, where Nipissing beat Ottawa 5-2.

In the Ottawa area there is an appeal to fans to appreciate the quality of CIS hockey is in the Centretown News. I guess the same story can be applied to most cities in Canada.

|> [BSU Story] : [Boxscore] : [Regina Site]

The Regina site has nothing on their weekend trip. I see they were outshot 43-18. That fits right in with what happened against Manitoba. This must be of some concern. They were able to rely on some spectacular goaltending to stay in their games with the Bisons, but that apparently ran out on them on their US tour. They drop to 3-3-2 in pre-season.


UBC THUNDERBIRDS 0
MINNESOTA GOLDEN GOPHERS 3

This one was played on Sunday. I have not been able to locate a boxscore. But apparently UBC was outshot 44-10 by the Rodents.


UBC THUNDERBIRDS 1
MINNESOTA STATE MAVERICKS 3

|> [MSU Site] : [MSU Live Stats]

This one just ended as I post so no game stories are up. However, MSU has a live stats page and it gave the score and stats. It says the shots were 38-19 for MSU. Based on the US tour, one would have to rank UBC ahead of Regina. So the Tweety-Birds go 0-3 on the trip, and are now 2-4-0 in the pre-season.

Bye Week Stuff

WEEKEND PREVIEW

The Bisons will be concentrating on turkey this weekend since they are off on a bye. The CW starts the season in an odd fashion, with two series last weekend and two more this weekend. From here on in a full slate will be played each weekend. The non-conference/exhibition/pre-season games are also done now.


REGINA COUGARS (0-0-0, 3-3-2)
ALBERTA GOLDEN BEARS (0-0-0, 5-0-1)

|> [Live Video] : [U of A Preview - at CW Site] : [Live Stats - Friday - Saturday]

The Evil Monkeys had last weekend off whilst the Banjo-Cats were getting ripped in the States. It looks like UND and Bemidji peppered Regina goaltending like the Bisons did, only this time there were no 49 save performances in Regina's arsenal. Any points Regina could deny Saudi Alberta would be a bonus to the rest of the league.


CALGARY DINOS (0-2-0, 1-6-2)
UBC THUNDERBIRDS (0-0-0, 2-4-0)

|> [CITR Live Audio - Friday] : [UBC Preview] : [Live Stats - Friday - Saturday]

British California has yet to face a CW opponent so it is hard to gauge just where they are. They swept aside the SAIT Condoms then lost to the Abbotsford Heat (AHL), and were swept in 3 games in States. These results compare to their historical pre-season results. This, combined with a so-so recruiting class, has me thinking they will be roughly the same as last year. I'll be interested to see if either of these offensively-challenged teams can mount an attack. After being swept at home, the Dinos will feel some pressure on the road.

OTHER LINKS:


Goaltender Joe Caligiuri was named Canada West male athlete of the week for his two shutouts in Calgary. Seems reasonable. He was then named CIS male athlete of the week as well.

Also, Former Bison goalie Steve Christie agrees to terms with ECHL's Idaho Steelheads. He will join last year's team-mate Greg Beller on that squad.


South Campus Sports' Lethbridge Preview is up now. There are some interesting quotes from Coach Gatto:
Quote:
On finishing strong: “We don’t want to save it until the second half. Seven of our first ten are at home, and one and a half are done. We want to be better in the first half, so we’re not always coming from behind in that second half and making a late run.” ...

On going 0-3 against Mount Royal during the preseason: “It’s tough. It’s their Stanley Cup as an ACAC team, and they battle, and want to win that game. Just like we do, but we’re still trying to get the kinks out of the armour, and find the right mix of guys, so sometime it’s a little misleading.”

“When I used to play ACAC teams, our guys wanted to beat them 10-1. These guys here it’s like ‘aww jeez, we’ve got to play an ACAC team’… We played well enough to win, we just didn’t. They’re going to be a really good team.”...
Hmmmm. It is pretty clear that they cannot continue to dig a hole and then mount a late charge. But their early performance has been bad. They were 0-4-0 in preseason and well on their way to going 0-2-0 in the regular season. That all adds up to what looks like a slow start from here.


South Campus Sports' Sask Preview is also up. In the off-season I posted about the players leaving the team in order to play senior hockey. Here's a quote from the story:
Quote:
On DaSilva - "We're more serious than Steven wanted to be. There was no hard feelings, he thought about it, and we both drew a line in the sand, and mutually agreed that senior was probably a better thing for him, as long as he got his schooling."

"Everybody was looking to throw hatchets at one another, but there was really nothing going on. Sometimes you want to maintain, or get to another level, and it's at the expense of someone sometime."

"He wasn't blaming me, he wasn't blaming his teammates. He didn't have the same competitive drive he once did, and there's nothing wrong with that - it takes a man to admit it."

New on the scene: Chad Suer, Matthew Spafford, Kyle Aschim, Zak Stebner

As mentioned above these recruits pale in comparison to those from Alberta, Calgary, and Manitoba. There's not a top end recruit in this class, with Stebner the highlight offensively in a group that sports three defenceman, but that's slightly misleading given the addition Derek Hulak and Matt Delahey mid-season a year ago.
The Mangy Mutts have been the winner of the "best on paper" award in recent years and have fallen short on the ice. Maybe this year will be the opposite. They went 4-1-0 in pre-season and are almost 2-0-0 in the regular season.


The CIS is running a set of stories in their 50th anniversary series. This week they post about Andy Murray, who played for and coached the Brandon Bobcats. He was rumoured to be behind a plan to rekindle the program.


The CIS also ran an OUA Preview.

Bison Bye Week

October 7, 2011

OUT OF TOWN SCOREBOARD:

The Bisons are having a bye week. So all we have is the out of town scoreboard. Here are the general links covering all games:

[CW Site] : [CIS Site] : [CW Friday Recap] : [CIS Friday Round-up]


REGINA COUGARS 2
ALBERTA GOLDEN BEARS 5


|> [U of A Summary] : [LS Summary] : [CIS Boxscore]
|> [South Campus Sports Alberta Preview]


This game was on CanadaWest.tv for audio and video. The Evil Monkeys were handling the Banjo-Cats with relative ease but only led 3-1 after two periods. An early third period goal by Regina made it 3-2 and the Monkeys were suddenly feeling some heat. They ultimately salted it away with two goals, one scored by Levko Koper.
Quote:
Koper, who was drafted by the Atlanta Thrashers (7th round, 185th overall in 2009), also scored the first goal in modern Winnipeg Jets history, when he tallied for the new NHL franchise during their rookie camp in Penticton, B.C. in September.

CALGARY DINOS 5
UBC THUNDERBIRDS 4

(in shootout)

|> [UBC Story] : [U of C Preview] : [LS Summary]


Two teams who had all kinds of problems scoring goals exploded. I listened to the end on CITR.ca online. The Dinos seemed to have the game well in hand with a 3-1 lead after two periods. But the Tweety-Birds rallied with a strong third period. They scored 3 times between the 6th and 9th minutes to take a 4-3 lead. However, Calgary tied it up within 17 seconds of blowing the lead.

BTW, Dustin Butler was in goal for the Dinos, with Jacob Deserres dressed as backup. Newcomer Steven Stanford was in the UBC goal, backed up by returnee Jordan White.


UBC has a new home yellow sweater this year. The Monkeys wore white against Regina, which are better than their yellow:

This game came to one unique conclusion. The zamboni was cleaning the ice during the second intermission when it sprang a leak and drained some sort of fluid all over the ice, rendering it unplayable. The CW will have to find space to conclude the 3rd period, at which time the results and statistics will be added. In any event, 3 second period goals gave the Banjo-Mutts a convincing lead. They appeared well on their way to a road sweep of their own.

UND scored on almost 50% of heir shots on goal in the 1st period en route to a 5-0 lead. The Banjo-Cats then replaced A.J. Whiffen with Lucas Gore in net and the game calmed down. The Injuns managed to outshoot the Kittens 47-15. One has to wonder if being grossly outshout will be a Regina trademark this year. They are now 3-2-2 in the pre-season.


UBC THUNDERBIRDS 1

|> [UNO Story] : [Boxscore - pdf] : [UBC Tour Preview]

The Tweety-Birds were evidently outplayed in this game, outshot 37-18 on the night. It was 1-1 after one period but UNO pulled away in the 2nd and 3rd periods. UBC falls to 2-2-0 in the pre-season.

UBC has a new look.

The AUS has yet to start its season and there was only one game in the OUA, where Nipissing beat Ottawa 5-2.

In the Ottawa area there is an appeal to fans to appreciate the quality of CIS hockey is in the Centretown News. I guess the same story can be applied to most cities in Canada.
Love Calgary's New Uniforms, Glad to see the Dino Logo Back, the uniforms theyve been wearing the Past Couple of years, looked like a beer league team from the 80's

Bison Bye Week Wrap-up

October 8, 2011

OUT OF TOWN SCOREBOARD:

The Bison bye week wraps up. The Herd will travel to Edmontown next weekend to face the Evil Monkeys for temporary possession of first place. Here's what happened this Saturday:

[CW Site] : [CIS Site] : [CW Saturday Recap] : [CIS Saturday Round-up (not yet uploaded)]

ALBERTA GOLDEN BEARS 2

|> [U of A Friday Story - at U of R Site] : [Edmonton Journal Preview]


That CanadaWest.tv is one handy feature. While trying to watch HNIC's season debut and some MLB action between rain delays, I was able to watch the Banjo-Cats make a futile attempt at generating some offence. The Monkeys only won by 2 goals, yet it seemed more one-sided than that. The shots were 37-12, and though trailing Regina only had 3 shots on goal in the 3rd period. Just think: To win the game they needed to score on EVERY shot on goal in the 3rd period.

So the Primates are now tied with Manitoba with 4 points, and the square off next weekend. Meanwhile, Regina will go home-and-home with Sask in the Battle of the Melonheads.


CALGARY DINOS 3
UBC THUNDERBIRDS 4


|> [UBC Story] : [LS Summary]: [CIS Boxscore - not yet posted]
|> [U of C Friday Story] : [CIS Friday Boxscore] : [Vancouver Province Preview]


I don't think it is too early to say that Calgary is off to a bad start. The 1-4-2 pre-season record could be written off due to the fact that they played 6 games against top CIS teams (Alberta, Acadia, St. FX, and UNB) and the Flames Prospects. But being shut-out twice on home ice and then a split at UBC, with the win coming in a shoot-out, does not make them look like the national contenders they were purported to be.

We should not overlook UBC, gaining 3 points on the weekend and vaulting into 3rd place. Once again, they were well out-shot. However, after being outshot 15-7 in the 1st period they were still up 1-0. Thereafter the shots (and goals) were dead even. Both teams switched goaltenders from Friday. Calgary gave Jacob DeSerres his first start and veteran Jordan White was in the UBC nets. Taylor Stefishen scored two goals for the Dinos for the second game in a row.

Preview: Bisons @ Evil Monkeys: Oct 14-15

WEEKEND PREVIEW



MANITOBA BISONS (2-0-0, 3rd in OHT34)

Friday, October 14th, 8:30 p.m. CDT @ Edmonton

OTHER STORIES: [SCS Bison Preview] : [Caligiuri plays for Jets - Slam! : Free Press : NHL.com]

The schedule-maker has made this a pivotal series, even though it is just the second series for both teams. The Bisons came into the season rated 3rd or 4th by most pundits but knocked off Calgary (twice) in Cowtown. So if they could go 4-0 in Saudi Alberta before even playing a home game then they would truly be off and running. In a 28 game season, they will have but 10 games left on the road.

The big question remains in goal for the Bisons. Joe Caligiuri won the #1 job and followed with two shut-outs. If he can maintain something close to that, the loss of Steve Christie will be well and truly covered. Maybe his workouts with the Jets his week will help him.

The next question will then be Bison scoring. Their D is solid, perhaps the best in Canada. (UNB would argue that one.) But they were unable to cash in on chances against MRU and Regina in pre-season play. They will need better finish against the Monkeys.

Here's what the U of A preview story said:
Quote:
Furthermore, the Bisons have had considerable success against the Golden Bears in recent years, outside of the playoffs. In the 2008-09 and 2009-10 seasons, the two squads went 2-2 in conference play, splitting each weekend series.

In the 2010-11 season, Alberta and Manitoba split again in Winnipeg, but the Bears were victorious on home ice, though the Bisons found a way to tie the game and pushed the Bears to extra time and/or a shootout on both occasions.

Add to that several close games in the post-season in the last two years, including the Canada West finals in 2009-10, and the rivalry, which simmered through most of the 2000s, is a goal or a save away from achieving an even higher level of intensity.

|> [U of L Preview] : [SCS UBC Preview] : [SCS Lethbridge Preview]


Lethbridge have been a disappointment so far. They went winless in the pre-season and were handled with relative ease by the Banjo-Mutts last weekend.

Meanwhile, UBC was opportunistic against the Dinos. Their pre-season results would indicate that they are about the same calibre as last year's team.

This series is a home-and-home affair in the Battle of the Melonheads. The fur will fly when dogs meet cats and both are armed with banjos. I'll be interested to see what happens if Regina is once again outshot by something like 45-12 on the night, which is what happened when they played Manitoba, Alberta, and the teams in the States.

October 14: Bisons 5 Monkeys 4

October 14, 2011

TIC TAC TOE, THREE IN A ROW!


MANITOBA BISONS 5
ALBERTA GOLDEN BEARS 4


|> [U of A Summary - check back for a story] : [U of M Story] : [CW Friday Recap]
|> [LS Summary] : [CIS Boxscore] : [CIS Friday Round-up]


The game started earlier than I expected so I missed the first period on CanadaWest.tv. At that time the Bisons had built a 2-0 lead on goals by Blair Macaulay and Myles Rumsey, and held a 13-10 edge in SOG. However, they were also two men shorthanded to start the second.

The officiating in the 2nd period was highly questionable. The Bisons started the period two men short and then were assessed a further 12 minutes in minors, a 5 minute major, and three 10 minute misconducts. The Evil Monkeys had a total of four minutes in minors. That means they had about 17 minutes of power play time during the period, often including two minute stretches of a 2-man advantage. On one play a little monkey named Ian Barteuax hacked and pushed at Jered Walker after the whistle. Walker pushed back and Barteaux flew Sedin-like to the ice. Walker got 5 minutes for his efforts.

Yet the Bisons out-scored the Monkeys by 2-1 in the period for a 4-1 lead. Tylet Dittmer scored on a rare even-strength situation. The Monkeys were able to finally score on a PP about 14 minutes in. Then, to rub salt in the wounds, the Bisons got a PP goal from Ian Duval in the final minute.

Joe Caligiuri was doing great work in the Bison goal, and the PK was very effective. However, the team looked tired in the 3rd. The Primates scored three unanswered goals to tie the game. But in the last 90 seconds Dane Crowley made a cross-ice pass to Mike Hellyer who one-timed it into the net for a 5-4 victory.

Saturday's game is also on CanadaWest.tv at 8:00 CDT.

The game followed a typical pattern for the Feline Hillbillies: Get badly outshot and hang on for dear life. Only this time the Canine Hillbillies racked up an early 3 goal lead and coasted to a win. Starting goaltender A.J. Whiffen was yanked in less than 5 minutes when Sask scored on 3-of-5 shots. So the Melons shall be worn on the heads of the Huskies tonight! The rematch shifts to the 'Toon for Saturday night.

This one was also on CanadaWest.tv and I checked it out on occasion. It seemed a fairly evenly-played game. UBC built a 2-0 lead. Then the Viagra kicked in for he H0rny Ones and they took control while building a 3-2 lead. UBC were able to force OT. The shoot-out produced one goal in 10 attempts.

Bisons did take some undisciplined penalties (high sticking) that put their lead in jeopardy. It was nice to see them pull off the win in the end. I expect Alberta to come out flying tonight. Might get nasty too.

CanadaWest.tv is a great site. I even caught the UBC v Lethbridge shootout.

I saw this one on CanadaWest.tv. They had three games on tonight but since they all started at the same time I saw very little of the other two games. The game did not have the mean streak of Friday's game. It was still a well-played hockey game but was basically a normal 1-1 tie. Until the end.

The game went into overtime and the first OT (4 on 4) was scoreless. So they went to the second OT (3 on 3). The Evil Monkeys had two extra Monkeys jump out on the ice when they should have been swinging from a branch. One was fed a pass and before you know it the puck was in the net. But not so fast. The linesmen noticed the skullduggery and pointed it out to the referees. Since linesmen can call too many men, but cannot whistle the play dead, the call had to await the next whistle, which happened when the Primates were celebrating their "goal". After a pow-wow the call was made, a bench minor was called and the goal waived off. On the ensuing powerplay, Blair Macaulay notched his 3rd goal of the year and the Herd had their sweep.

Dane Crowley had Manitoba's first goal. Joe Caligiuri stopped 34 of 35 shots for his 4th straight win. The Bisons gradually too control of the game, and outshot the Monkeys 8-5 in the 3rd period and 8-3 in overtime.

Folks, that's four wins in four games in Saudi Alberta against the top two rated CW teams in the pre-season coaches' poll. The Bisons will only play 10 more away games this season (double-headers in Sask, UBC, Regina, Lethbridge, and Calgary).

The Banjo-Cats always have a performance boost against the Banjo-Mutts. They came up with their best performance of the season so far, yet fell short. Instead of being grossly outshot and relying upon a bamboozled goaltender, they actually outshot Sask 28-21 and had a 4-3 lead until Kyle Bortis scored twice late in the 3rd to give the Mutts the win.


UBC THUNDERBIRDS 5
LETHBRIDGE PRONGHORNS 3

UBC came from behind 2-0 to gain a split. Pretty much the expected result between these two teams. So it is another 3 point weekend for the Tweety-Birds. The `Birds outshot the H0rny Ones 37-24 on the night.

I turned the game off right after Alberta scored. I do remember hearing the commentators saying that Alberta got away with one on the line change.
Good thing I checked this thread.

By the way, is that 3 on 3 rule for all of the CIS now?

I also watched the tail end of that game, and both commentators stated at the time of the Alberta goal that the Golden Bears had benefited from the most generous line change they'd ever seen. Obviously the officials agreed, since they called the goal back.

Only the Canada West conference is trying the 5-minute 4-on-4 followed by 5-minute 3-on-3 overtime structure.
