Blades Slide Past Silvertips

Tonight was a different night with the members of the Saskatchewan Roughriders in the building as well as numerous figure skaters including former Blades tough guy Kelly Chase. It felt weird watching a couple intermissions of figure skating but it was for a great cause.

As per usual the Blades started slow giving up the first 2 goals of the game. The Blades went down 3-1 in the 3rd period. The Blades seem to have a never say die attitude. The game in Kamloops and this game were VERY similar for the Blades,being down 3-1 and winning in O.T

In the 2nd period Teigan Zahn and Cameron Elynuik had a battle going on and had a little scrap so they sit for 5 minutes and and as soon as they returned to the ice they went at it again.

The Blades tied the game with 10 seconds left in the 3rd with Stanford on the bench. Wow what a rush that was!!!

In overtime Jake Trask was the hero!!! He played a great game scoring 2 goals and getting 1st star as well.

The Blades peppered the Silvertips with 47 shots and Steven Stanford only faced 20 shots.

The Blades will be without Curtis Hamilton as he leaves for Toronto tomorrow.. I am not sure about Marek Viedensky and Matt Stransky though. The Blades will also be without Ryan Olsen and Levi Bews when the U17's start.

The Blades are 23-7-0-1 which gives them 47 points.

The Regina Pats traded Carter Ashton to the Tri City Americans for 18 year old Tanner Olstad,17 year old Nils Moser and a bunch of The Americans receive Ashton and a 3rd round draft pick

More bus trips in the new year. Possibly one to Swift Current at the end of January and Moose Jaw at the end of February. Hopefully they can have full buses for those 2 day trips.
