The Blades were hoping to melt the streak of 13 that Kootenay was riding,they could have done it but to be honest the officiating was not really in the Blades favor tonight. There were many examples of that and even Lorne Molleken was hot under his collar.
There are bound to be games like this one and (hopefully only in a blue moon) The Blades looked as if they could of snapped the winning streak of their opponent but a penalty shot was awarded to Kootenay and this call was the turning point in the game.
It was awesome to see Curtis Hamilton out there doing his thing again.
These two teams have quite a thing for one another now because it almost looked like a Blades/Raiders game (in terms of how heated and intense the game was)
I was not too pleased with Todd Mathews the Ice goaltender going after what looked like every Blade player who went into his area during the game. This game was really up tempo and I am very surprised that the gloves stayed ON and no fights happened.
At one point during the intermission or time-out both goalies looked as if they wanted at one another,I think they even tried to get a piece of each other as they where so close together.
The Ice did extend their winning streak to 14 games with this 5-4 victory of the bridge city bunch.
Duncan Seimens stepped up BIG TIME and had a huge game. I thought Adam Morrison could have played better,but Stanford can not and should not be forced to play all of the games.
The 505/50 jackpot was an impressive $5,000. Sadly I did not win. (hopefully one of these games) haha.
I hope Jeremy Boyer plays tomorrow night,as he was scratched for this game.
Do not worry the Blades are still in 1st place and Kootenay is on a hot streak.
Tomorrow night the Brandon Wheat Kings will entertain the host Blades.
