The Blades were looking to win for the 18th time this season and the Cougars were searching for their first victory on their tour of the east division.
Adam Morrison played goal for the Blades while Las Vegas product Hudson Stremmel played in net for the Cougars.
In the opening period the Blades controlled the play very well in the cougars zone. The shots at the end of the period were. 12-5 for the Blades. Brent Benson threw a big hit in this period,in fact the 4th line of Benson,McNaught and Dzuirzynski started the game and set the tone for the Blades.
The Blades drew first blood in the second period. The P.G Cougars tied up the game though.
Brent Benson is a human wrecking ball because he threw another good hit on the opposition.
The Blades scored all 3 of their goals in this period. Josh Nicholls's goal was probably the nicest one that the Blades scored.
The visiting P.G Cougars scored 2 consecutive goals to make the rest of the 3rd period an exciting period.
The Cougars pulled thier goalie but where unsuccessful in tying up the hockey game.
The ICR hit of the game went to rookie Brent Benson and the Wright Construction Hardest Working Player was Derek Hulak. The 3 stars were: #1: Derek Hulak. #2 Hudson Stremmel & #3 Brent Benson.
The final score was 3-2 for the Blades whose record improves to 18-3-0-3 on the season. The Blades do not play again until Nov.20th in Moose Jaw,and that is the same day that Dane Cook will put on a show at the CUC and I will be there. So 6 more days until the next Blades game and Dane Cook!!!!!!
The next Blades game at home is on Friday the 27th of November against the Lethbridge Hurricanes (the team that kicked the Blades out of the 08-09 1st round playoff series in 7 games) The next night the Blades will entertain the Calgary Hitmen at home.
That is all for now... time for me to catch up on sleep...........
