    Five straight losses and a share of the cellar with the Horns may have been too much to handle.:mad::ha::help:

    It’s good to be back!

    Unfortunately, after I bounced back from my own off-season surgery, the death of my business partner forced me to relocate in October. This left me no time at all for recreational internetting. I still went to the Bison home games, but there was no time to write about them.

    Did the Bisons ever fall apart during my internet absence. The big problem has been injuries. They usually had a short bench, and generally by two players. I have the impression that some players, though dressed, would not have been had options existed. In past years they could have overcome this. However, the early departure of some top-end and mid-range players meant that some Junior A bodies had to step in to key roles, rather than the support roles normally given.

    How will they fare in the second half? Well, technically the second lap around the schedule started just before the break, and the Bisons split with Calgary. Decent enough. But now its time for the annual trip to Edmontown to face the Evil Monkeys.

    The first thing I noticed was that there were just 16 skaters dressed, including a new recruit. Colton Veloso came from the Jacksonville Icemen of the ECHL. Last year he played for the Kootenay Ice in the WHL and scored 25 goals. He seems to be a skilled player and a strong addition.

    The players not dressed for the Bisons were:
    1 Justin Paulic
    8 Liam Bilton
    12 Nick Zajac
    14 Thomas Freeman
    18 Garrett Armour
    27 Carter Doerksen
    28 Brett Stovin
    30 Tyler Brown

    Tonight’s game was not as good as the two games played at the Fleming Arena in the first half. The Monkeys outshot the Herd 50-13. However, in the 3rd period with the score 2-1 the Bisons went on the powerplay and generated some decent chances. A turnover gave the Apes an insurance banana just as the penalty expired. An empty-netter at the 20:00 minute mark of the 3rd (isn’t that when the game is over?) made it 4-1 to enhance the scoreline.

    Zach Sawchenko got the win, and Byron Spriggs took the loss. Riley Keiser, Jayden Hart (with two, including the ENG), and Trevor Cox scored for the Monkeys. Jonah Wasylak had the Bison goal, on a nice break-out play with assists to Zach Franko and Adam Henry.

    In a scheduling oddity, the entire CW schedule is being played in Saudi Alberta this weekend. Moving south, we go to the Town of Bedrock.

    The Mutts are in first place, and Bedrock U is in the third, so this figured to be a good one. This was very defensive. The shots were 12-8 in favour of the Dinos after two periods, though Sask held a 1-0 lead. Carson Stadnyk scored twice for Sask (his 9th and 10th goals of the season) in the 3rd to put the game away, once short-handed and one empty-netter. Taran Kozun got the win, and Jordan Papirny took the loss.

    This was a surprisingly easy win for the Bluegars. They outshot UBC 9-1 in the 1st period (!!!!) and 14-6 in the 2nd en route to a 3-1 lead. The T-irds picke dit up in the 3rd periodbut it was too little, too late. Ryley Lindgren scored his 8th and 9th of the season for MRU. Riley Morris got the win, and Rylan Toth giot the loss.

    The Hørny Ønes have got it going this year, relatively speaking. This would normally be an epic battle of cellar-dwellers. Instead, this was a 55-37 shot clock shellacking. Sam McKechnie scored twice for Lethbridge, Garret Highson got the win, and Dawson MacAuley got the loss.

    55 shots by Lethbridge is impressive. The UNB/Moncton exhibition games may have sparked them.

    They are more free-wheeling than in the past. IMO that makes them more susceptible to blowouts, but better to watch. The change in coaches was good for them. Scoring in general seems up in the CW this year.

    After being dominated on Friday night, the Bisons were able to bounce back with a solid performance that would have been enough for two points against most teams in Usports.

    Liam Bilton was back in the line-up, meaning that the Bisons were only short one body.

    The Evil Monkeys held leads of 2-0 and 4-2, but both times the Bisons battled back to tie the game. Here’s the quick summary:
    1. AB Sanford, (8) (Kieser, Rehill), 14:13
    2. AB Legault, (2) (Kirichenko, Owre), 2:39
    2. MAN Franko, (6) , 3:07
    2. MAN Wasylak, (3) (Leipsic, Jameson), 7:14 (PP)
    3. AB Philp, (10) (Magee, Pawlenchuk), 1:50
    3. AB Magee, (5) (Craig, Pawlenchuk), 3:17
    3. MAN Leipsic, (5) (Henry, Dwyer), 16:27
    3. MAN Henry, (3) (Bilton, Brooks), 19:59
    OT1. AB Philp, (11) (Carroll), 3:23

    Byron Spriggs took the loss, with 30 saves on 35 shots, and Kenny Cameron stopped 23 of 27 shots for the win.

    Next weekend the Bisons will host the MRU Bluegars next Friday at 7:00 and Saturday at 2:00.

    The Mutts had a hard time generating offence again. All they managed was 19 shots ibn being shutout by Matthew Greenfield. In their net, Taran Kozun stopped 26 of 29 to take the loss. Dane Gibson had his 6th and 7th of the season for Bedrock U.

    The T-irds’ hot start is well in the rear-view mirror now. Their only goal was mid-way through the 3rd period when trailing 5-0. Riley Morris got the win (with 25 saves) and Patrick Dea got the loss (with 24 saves).

    Jan 11: BISONS EDGED BY BLUEGARS

    The final scoreline is misleading. This was a 3-2 game late, then two shorthanded goals changed the final outlook. On a positive note, the Bisons had a full 20-man roster dressed. Even though they had 7 defencemen and 11 forwards. Here's how they lined up:

    MANITOBA

    Goal:
    35 Spriggs (34 Sydora)

    Defence:
    2 Henry 3 Christensen
    23 Dwyer 11 Dyck
    24 Lenchyschyn 25 Skrumeda

    9 Franko 15 Jameson 29 Wasylak

    18 Armour 27 Doerksen 28 Stovin
    30 Brown

    MOUNT ROYAL

    Goal:
    33 Morris (31 Cooper)

    Defence:
    6 MacPherson 7 Lees
    2 Helgesen 11 Bobyk
    24 Jensen 27 Baker

    Forwards:
    26 Rankin 17 Lindgren 23 Watson
    15 Kroeker 28 Gerrie 8 Henry
    10 Stephens 19 Chartier 18 Kennedy
    12 Lipon 9 Zandee 16 Adamson

    Scratches:
    3 Roberts 4 Green 13 Bly
    20 Simpson 21 Pankewicz 22 Arnold
    35 Hoflin

    The first two periods were totally different. In the first, MRU scored twice and outshot the Herd 14-7. Jessie Lees and Chris Gerrie had the Bluegar goals.

    The Bisons turned it around in the 2nd, dominating territory and the shot clock 15-5. However, a bad line change and a fumble at the offensive blue-line led to a 2-on-1 breakout and a 3-0 lead for the Bluegars. Brad Kennedy converted Mitch Lipon's steal of the puck. Then a Bison goal was waved off due to a premature whistle. It looked like one of those nights. Then came a Bison PP due to a routine trip, followed shortly by a 4-minute high stick to the mouth of Nick Zajac, and a too-many-men-on-the-ice call. During those, Zach Franko scored twice in 5-on-3 situations.

    With a comeback win a distinct possibility, the Bisons never mounted too much pressure in the 3rd. The shot stats said it was 13-9 for MRU, but it didn't seem like it. Nobody had a great shot on goal.

    Riley Morris got the win, with 29 saves on 31 shots. The rookie is 8-1-0, 1.80 GAA, .929 S%. Impressive! Byron Spriggs stopped 27 of 30 in the loss.

    The rematch goes Saturday at 2:00 pm at the Wayne Fleming Arena on campus.

    Usually the Undercats on home ice can at least throw a scare into their fellow bumpkins, but not tonight. The shots were 40-12, favouring the Mutts. Sam Ruopp, Collin Shirley, and Alex Forsberg had two goals each for the Banjo Mutts, and Carson Stadnyk scored his 11th of the season. Back-up goaltender Travis Child got the win, and Dawson MacAuley took the loss. Perhaps the moonshine and banjo music will flow in Saskatown for the Saturday rematch.

    This home-and-home series was played on a Thursday-Friday format. The Thursday game in Lethbridge drew 1,600 Hørny Fans! That game was 0-0 for over 53 minutes, despite Bedrock U holding a commanding 38-17 lead in shots. The final goal was an empty-netter. Jordan Papirny got the win and Garret Hughson took the loss.

    Friday's rematch was more of a replay. The shots were 39-16 in favour of the Dinos. In this one, Matthew Greenfield got the shutout win and Garret Hughson once again experienced defeat.

    This was a game that could have gone either way. Once again, it was an empty-net goal which altered the scoreline at the very end. On the night, the shots were 30-29 in favour of the Bluegars.

    There were no line-up changes from Friday night, but for MRU scratching Jamal Watson in favour of Luke Simpson, who I did not notice taking a shift.

    The Bisons came out like they were shot out of a cannon. Liam Bilton notched his 4th of the season. MRU took some penalties for hits from behind, one of which knocked Zach Franko out of the game. Since they were already one forward short, the loss of one more made it a 3-line game the rest of the way.

    Byron Spriggs got the loss, with 26 saves on 29 shots and Riley Morris got the win with 28 saves on his 29 shots. Morris the Cat is a good goaltender.

    The loss leaves the Bisons 8 points behind Lethbridge for the last playoff berth. Next weekend the Bisons play Regina whilst Lethbridge faces Sask. After that, the Bisons host Lethbridge. Had the Bisons beaten MRU once, they would have had a great chance to vault into a playoff position in two weeks.

    Taran Kozun stopped 25 of 26 shots for the win, as 5 different Mutts found the fire hydrant. Dawson MacAuley took another loss, with 34 stops on 39 shots. More disappointment for the Banjo Cats!

    After a scoreless 1st period, the Evil Monkeys did a number on the T-irds in the 2nd period, outscoring them 4-0 and out-shooting them 14-2. Zach Sawchenko had a 17 save shutout for the win and Luke Philp scored his 13th, 14th, and 15th goals of the season. Rylan Toth stopped 20 of 24 shots for the loss, and Patrick Day stopped 9 of 11 in relief.

    This was a battle-for-the-basement, but the win keeps the Herd's hopes alive. They close to within 6 points of Lethbridge, who play Sask today and the Bisons next weekend.

    With Zach Franko out with injury (joining a long list), the Bisons at least recovered captain Brett Stovin for the injured list. They also debuted a new defenceman, Ryan Carlson, a transfer from Wisconsin-Superior.

    Matthew Leblanc scored his first goal in the CW for the Bisons, and he Devon Skoleski (goal and assist), and Jeremey Leipsic (two assists) each had two points on the first three goals. It's always good to get some depth scoring. Defenceman Lucas Skrumeda also had a goal in that mix. Liam Bilton and Nick Zajac added empty-netters.

    Byron Spriggs stopped 27 of 29 shots for the win, and Dawson MacAuley stopped 38 of 41 in the loss.

    The rematch goes Saturday at 3:00, and hopefully canadawest.tv is up and running. Host Yare was doing site maintenance on Friday night just before 8:00, during the busiest night on the CW schedule across all sports. Bad timing.

    The Bisons got the help they needed from the Banjo Mutts. This was a penalty-filled affair. I wish that I could have seen the shenanigans on CanadaWest,tv. A loss tonight by the HØrny Ønes would open the door for the Bisons to be in a playoff position next weekend.

    The Evil Monkeys dusted off the Bluegars in convincing fashion. Shots were 38-17. Brendan Burke was back in goal for the shutout win and Graeme Craig scored twice. Riley Morris took the loss.

    This was the annual Winter Classic out in British California, so they had a huge crowd. But the glory went to the team from the Town of Bedrock in overtime.
    Jordan Papirny got the win with 18 saves on 20 shots, Rylan Toth took the loss with 28 saves on 31 shots. The slumping T-irds needed at least that point. Could they be the team that slumps right out of the playoffs after their amazing start?
