The Blades were resting veterans for the playoffs I think... Klassen and Dzuirzynski were healthy scratches this game....While Darren Dietz,Levi Bews,Lukas Sutter and Davis Vandane all dressed for this game. I thought that all of these guys played well... especially Levi Bews because he was driving to the net hard very often,and even took out Jamie Tucker once. He also registered his 1st WHL point an assist... Congrats go out to him!!!!!
The game was close until the 2nd period when the Blades started to score and put the game away.
There were no fights in this game but the game did become heated.
The final score was 4-1 for the Blades.
Charles Inglis was awarded the hit of the game and Duncan Siemens was awarded the Hardest Working Player.
Steven Stanford was star #1,Marek Viedensky was star #2 and Duncan Siemens was the 3rd star.
After the game Lorne Molleken was handed the microphone and on behalf of the entire Blades organization he thanked the fans for their loyalty and support.
The Blades can NOT catch the Brandon Wheat Kings for 2nd place in the conference.
They just have to wait and see what happens with the rest of the eastern conference.
The Blades complete the home and home with the Raiders tomorrow night in PA.
The bridge city bunch can finish with 101 points which is a pretty decent season in my opinion.
The 5050 jackpot was over $8,000!!!!!!!! Highest of the season........... The attendance was over 6,000.
The Blades awards banquet is on Monday March 15th.
I expect for those same rookies to play tomorrow night in PA...no sense dressing all of the veterans.
Congrats go out to Steven Stanford for making the top 5 plays of the week... His save was #4,it was against the Brandon Wheat Kings.
