I read in the sports section of today's paper that the Blades have decided to make Curt Gogol have surgery to fix his hand/arm. So there is a possibility that if the Blades go on some sort of a playoff run Gogol could be back then. Now the injured list for the Blades is: Zahn,Hamilton and Gogol.
Please NO MORE injuries to this team because if that happens they will be up the creek. The Blades did play Swift Current tonight in front of a crowd of just over 4,000.
I am gonna try and keep it short. The Blades played a decent hockey game but most of the Swift Current goals were off of bad passes that were intercepted by the Broncos and deposited into the net past Steven Stanford.
Surprisingly Darian Dzuirzynski was not throwing his body around as much as in previous games. The Blades still played physical against the Broncos though.
All of the Blades recent games have been close one goal games and this game was the same. I thought it was a very evenly matched game.
I think that the Blades are doing the some of the things that they need to in order to win but they need to capitalize on their chances.
Duncan Siemens is sure taking advantage of his playing time he even was involved in a tussle & boy oh boy does he like to get rough!!!!!!!!
The Broncos battled hard to tie the game and outworked the Blades in the extra period scoring with about 2 and a half minutes left in the Overtime. Plain and simple they wanted it more. They got it too.
Final 4-3 for the Broncos and these two teams will meet again Saturday in Swift Current.
The next time the Blades play at Credit Union Centre is on Febuary 6th which I think is a Saturday. The Blades will make stops in Pa and Regina before then.
The Blades did earn a single point so now the Blades have 73 points on the season.
