The Blades DID NOT get off to a good start in this game,going down 3-0 in the 1st period. This game kinda dragged on and it did not help that the Blades were loosing. The crowd was becoming restless but a couple of power play opportunities changed that.
The Blades regained their confidence as the game progressed and battled through a very skilled Wheat Kings team.
Even though the Blades took some silly penalties and IMO made lazy passes at times but they turned up their compete level and scored when it mattered most.
The Blades came from behind and tied up the hockey game in the 3rd period and they made it count in the extra frame.
I think they stunned the Wheat Kings with there desire to continue working hard while trailing because after the Wheat Kings were up 3-0 that early in the game, I thought against a team like Brandon it would be hard to comeback but they proved me wrong and good on them for doing that.
The final score was 4-3 for the home team and a win which now ties the Blades and Wheat Kings for the East Division lead. GOOD WORK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The Blades have another home date against the Swift Current Broncos on Wednesday Feb.10th and I have a soccer game at 7:30 that night so I choose to miss that Blades game.
