Blades Lose To Wheat Kings

This game was another game where I thought that the Blades did not play a full 60 minutes. Saskatoon started strong but in the 2nd period they were not working and it showed as Brandon found themselves back in the game after erasing a 4-1 lead.

There is something about the Wheat Kings and the number 7 perhaps that is the average number of goals that they score in a game? They did that tonight in a great comeback that was seen by 6,000 plus and all of those who watched on Shaw tv tonight.

Rookie Ryan Olsen saw 1st line duty tonight and he scored his 8th goal of the season on a nice deflection.

The final score was 7-6 for the Wheat Kings. Hopefully the Blades will have one of (of both) Brent Benson or Marek Viedensky back in the line-up tomorrow in Moose Jaw.

Kelowna sort of did the Blades a favor by defeating the Rebels but the Blades did not get two points so they lose ground in the eastern conference race.

The Blades fan bus is travelling to Moose Jaw for the game tomorrow and yours truly will be there. I am excited for tomorrow no doubt.
