Blades Win In Shoot-out

Andrey Makarov started for the Blades in net. Saskatoon built up a 3-1 lead at one point. Medicine Hat is a fast team with some offensive weapons like Emerson Etem.

The Blades I thought were still playing sloppy which caused them to give up the lead.

The Tigers tied up the game,and did forced a shoot-out.

The Blades scored 2 times in the shoot-out. They won 4-3.

Their next game is on friday against the Calgary Hitmen. The Blades are 1 win away from tying or breaking the record of most consecutive wins on home ice. Saskatoon continues to lead the WHL in points.

2 WIns This Weekend.

Finally back from Alberta. I had an awesome time! The game was a goal fest with 11 goals being scored. Saskatoon played kinda sloppy throughout.

The Defence needs to step up and not allow so many shot Makarov is going to be worn out if he continues to see so many games in a row and see so much rubber.

Lukas Sutter has really improved and showed that with 2 goals tonight.

The Blades won 6-5. Saskatoon has 3 games next week. Tuesday,Friday and Saturday. Saskatoon is also the top team in the WHL right now.

Blades complete A Comeback

This game tonight was probably one of the best that I have seen on the road. The Blades played ok but they really picked it up in the later stages of the 2nd and 3rd period.

Saskatoon won 2-1 in a playoff type game. The Blades continue to be on a roll. There was a brawl that almost happened at the end. It was because the Blades players huddled and raised their sticks to the Blades fans that were there supporting them. Hopefully there will be no suspensions.

I have to go relax and maybe celebrate a little. The game against the Hitmen is at 3PM here in Alberta. Early morning to have breakfast and go shopping. Go Blades Go!!

Blades Spoil Dzuirzynski's Return to Saskatoon.

Tonight was the 1st game against Darian Dzuirzynski since he was traded in October.

Andrey Makarov was the starter for the Blades. He stopped 41 shots.

Saskatoon got out to a 3-0 lead. Brandon did find their way back into this game however.

16 year old rookie Devan Fafard fought Aryton Nikkel of the Wheat Kings both of them landed some good shots but Nikkel got the takedown.

Darian Dzuirzynski scored one goal and was the 3rd star of the game.

The final score was 5-2 for the Blades.

The Blades are now 9-0 on home ice,12-6-0-1 overall and sit atop of the East Division for now. (one point ahead of the Pats)

Saskatoon will travel to Swift Current to play the Broncos tomorrow and travel to Medicine Hat to play the Tigers on November 12th.

Blades Still Unbeaten At Home.

After a poor game last night the Blades rebounded against a Lethbridge team that struggled. Adam Todd played goal for the Blades.

Saskatoon was scoring in bunches this game. 4 goals in the 1st period and 3 goals in the 2nd. A big night for everyone. Bringing back the pac-man jerseys was an awesome idea. Lethbridge has a feisty team #22 for the Hurricanes fought 2 times.

7-3 in favour of the Blades. Saskatoon's next game is against Darian Dzuirzynski and the Brandon Wheat Kings on Tuesday night, The Blades have an 8-0 record on home ice.

Blades Fall To Moose Jaw

Let me start off by saying I really like the new rink in Moose Jaw. It has a lot of steps just like Chilliwack's rink did.

I am going to make this short as I work in the morning. Saskatoon played well through 20 minutes but I thought they fell asleep after that. They did keep the game close but could not complete the comeback. The final score was 3-2 for the Warriors.

Hopefully they rebound against the Hurricanes tonight.

Home Winning Streak Contines

Saskatoon continues to play well at the CUC.

The Blades got out to a 3-0 lead and thanks in huge part to Andrey Makarov,who will play for team Russia in the WHL VS Russia Super Series.

16 year old Rookie Devan Fafard got into his 1st WHL fight with anther 16 year old from the Hitmen. I think he did pretty well. I would call it a draw.

I honestly do not know how Alex Elliott is still on the team,he has 0 points in 10 games..... i could understand if he was a rookie but he is not really one. I do not know what he was doing fighting either.

Dalton Thrower went hard into the boards and looked a bit worse for wear. Josh Nicholls was a beast tonight notching 2 points.

The final score was 4-1 for the Blades.

The Blades next action is against the Warriors in Moose Jaw. I am so glad that I am going!!

Go Blades Go!! Saskatoon has won 7 in a row at home.

The Blades will face the Calgary Hitmen tonight at home. On Friday night the Blades will play their 1st game against Moose Jaw at Mosaic place,the booster club will be making the trip to watch the game and yes you guessed it yours truely will be there to take in the game!!
