    Sounds like we lost tonight. I couldn’t make it, how was the game (from anyone that went)?Looks like we lost a nail biter 2-1.

    I’ll be at the game Sunday afternoon cheering the boys on.

    Dylan Miskiw (L 7-4) made 25 saves and was named third star, but the Raiders escaped and made off with the Oil Kings' stores of grain 2-1, to tie the series at 2-2. Wyatt McLeod scored the lone goal, with Quinn Benjafield adding the assist. Shots were 27-26 Prince Albert. PP was 0/3, PK 2/2. Edmonton won 32 of 60 faceoffs.

    Looks like the EOK lost 4-0 tonight. Sunday is win or go home game. Should be a good one. Terry Jones pisses me right f***ing off. Wrote the "upset" column after we went up 2-1. Was similar to the "Chia is a genius" article he wrote after the Hitch Heater shortly after he was hired. I read his EOK article and was like, man shut the f*** up, we haven't won anything yet or upset anyone. There is still a looooong way to go in this series. He gets too giddy over small victories.

    Mind you does anyone read the Sun anymore?

    Dylan Miskiw (L 7-5) made 26 saves, but the Raiders stole the drawbridge of the Oil Kings 4-0 to take a 3-2 series lead. Shots were 30-24 Prince Albert. PP was 0/0, PK 2/3. Prince Albert won 27 of 51 faceoffs.

    4-2 loss. Bad giveaways and penalties cost us but PA was the better team. TF-W scored one of the nicest goals I’ve seen - shortie to boot - in that building though on our 2nd goal.

    It’s too bad we didn’t take a flyer on him with our 7th pick last year. I think Columbus has a 4th line leader who can score on their hands who can play up and down the lineup. Wish that kid well. He’s a gamer.

    Hell of a season. The boys ran into one of the best teams in the CHL. No shame in that.

    Even though the Oil Kings lost I'm glad I was there at Rogers Place today. They were overmatched vs Prince Albert but they never quit. Also, there's a very good chance that Edmonton's second goal will be the last one we see Trey Fix-Wolansky score as an Oil King. It was a spectacular shorthanded effort and nicely illustrated what an absolute treat it has been to watch that kid play.

    Glad I was there as well! That was an awesome goal. Hope he does well in Columbus' system.

    I hope he does well for himself and doesn't suffer the fate as Lazar, Samuelsson, or any of the other talented forwards who have come through the OK's system.

    Trey Fix-Wolansky had 2 goals and was named second star, but the Raiders put the Oil Kings to the gallows 4-2 to take the series 4-2. Quinn Bejafield had 2 assists and Matthew Robertson added one. Dylan Miskiw (L 7-6) made 20 saves. Andrew Fyten was named first star. Shots were 34-24 Edmonton. PP was 0/4, PK 3/5. Edmonton won 33 of 63 faceoffs.

    Fix-Wolansky joined the Cleveland Monsters (CBJ's AHL team) and played three games. He had a goal and assist tonight but the Monsters were eliminated.

    What Happened to Corey Graham?

    Great piece by Gregor on Corey Graham. Really tough to read at my desk with the heaviness of the content. Wishing him the best in his recovery.

    The Fan Within

    Neat little story about Gregor going to see his Nephew play and win the WHL title.

    I've never really seen this side of Gregor to this extent. Really doesn't promote his nephew or show much of that fan within side very often.

    Interesting decisions to come. Definitely see why they went for Sawchuk though, 53 points in 67 games as a 19 year old. Could definitely see him up in the 80s maybe even pushing 90 next year. Helps offset the loss of TFW a little.

    Miskiw might get traded, as they may want to give Todd Scott more playing time. Connor McDonald will likely be back. It'll be a tossup for the other 2 overage positions.

    McDonald and Sawchuk are no brainers imo, just comes down to the third. I could definitely see them moving Myskiw, opens up time for 16 year old Sebastian Cossa to see if he can be the goalie of the future for them. I think they'll wanna be flexible as well on the off chance that the Jackets return TFW for his overage season, and I'm thinking it'd be easier to move Galvas/Warm in season than an overage goalie.
