Going to stop at Birch Run the morning before the game and might stop in again on the way home the next morning. The Ramada Inn in Saginaw offers a package for $80 per night and that includes tickets to the game, shuttle ride to and from the game, hotel room for the night and breakfast in the morning. Can't beat that price. The tickets alone at the gate were $31 and we were going to spend the night in Birch run anyways. Thanks for the help and advice.

That is a great deal - surprised it hasn't been advertised or have I just missed it?

Who would have thought just a few months ago that we would be talking about the Sting being #1 on the PP and #3-4 on the PK. Congrats boys

Also nice to see Nikolay Goldobin second in rookie scoring. Sarnia has a good one in the making. He's just scratching the surface...

great pickup by the Sting,they will continue to need his offence,in the very tough western conference where 5 pts separate 1st place to 8th as we head to the quarter pole of the season

Just watched Dave Naylor of TSN reporting on the so called CHLPA. Demolished this scam outfit. Every single player in the CHL should be required to sit and watch that clip.

I had Connor Murphy out at my Novice Tier 1 practice yesterday and I couldn't get over how well spoken he is. The kids loved him being there on the ice, but he had a 5-10 minute talk with the group afterwards and it put a smile on every kids face. He stuck around for 20 minutes after practice and signed sticks, jerseys etc. Total class act.

Congrats to Sting followers,just think if u guys had Yakapov,though in the same breath Sting could lose Galchenyuk if Montreal gets back to work,could go from 2nd in the conf to 7 or 8th
I really think if Windsor had Khloklachev a few more pts in the standings would be a reality especially in shootout successes,he was deadly

You know what.i think we are a better team without Yaki.I was Yaki biggest fan last year but I think ALL our guys are playing harder without him>I think they depended too much on him last year and he was too predictable for the opposition later in the year.Plus he gave up easily on a play when he lost the puck and didnt have a defensive bone in his body to come back and pick up a man. I said at the start of the year that i liked our offense better this year w/o him than last year

Nice article on Barrick, if I attached it right. I have a soft spot for goalies as I tried to play the position back in the day and I took a liking to this kid when he first appeared at rookie camp back in 2010. I tried to follow him best I could the past couple years and am glad to see him have some good games in the O. Keep it up Brodie!

After a lackluster 1st period the lads got it together yesterday. Way to go Sting! I to think the team is playing more like a TEAM this year.

How has Reid Boucher looked this year? Has he improved his all around game?

Well IMO Reid had an awesum preseason.looked strong,Then for a 4-5 game stretch he seem to loose his touch and didnt seem real hungry to me BUT since then he has played awesum i think.Now, he is usually on a line with Sarault and Gali and even I could look good with that pair.LOL.Seriously,he has been with a few other linemates also and looked good.He is on the first line PK which is 3rd-4th in the league,he skates well,quite a few shorthanded opportunities,awesum shot and on the PK blocks a lot of shots.He is also first line of the PP which is 1st-3rd in the league and has performed well passing the puck around and a blister of a shot.He has also thrown some hard checks to my surprise and can hold his own.To me a great improvement over last year and looks great.

He's improved a bit from last year but he still struggles with consistency especially on a shift-to-shift basis. He still owns one of the best releases in the OHL but hasn't found the back of the net as much as I expected him to especially considering his line mates. He's getting much better on the defensive side of the puck and shows better in battles. His puck handling skills have also improved but he still struggles at times if under pressure

Overall, Boucher has been good. With more consistency over the entire season and his development is on track

Well said... I was expecting more this year offensively...good to see him becoming a more rounded player...I expected him to score 30-40 playing top line mins...he still could do it...a hat trick here and there will put him on pace for it

I agree with all of what was said by Dean. On the note of his shot/shooting I'd like to point out tho that I think the problem he has run into this year is that he has become much more predictable for goalies. His shoot from anywhere style made him dangerous in the offensive zone last season(still is), but now more established in the OHL he needs to pick up more of a willingness to pass in order to keep the goaltenders guessing, thats not a knock on his team play either. I'm just saying if I'm a goalie and he's comming in on me 2 on 1 with the puck, I know what he's going to do with it

As I also expected Reid to put up 30-40 this season as Lavy said and he's certinaly behind that pace right now, but I think he does have a breakout weekend up his sleeve and that gets him going. On a good note I've definately noticed his 2 way game has improved which was a must considering his poor +/- last season.
