Ice Sweep Tigers.

The Kootenay Ice continue their winning ways and they have now won 11 games in a row.

7-2 was the final score for the Ice. Max Reinhart scored 5 goals for the Ice. His brother Sam also is playing for the Ice now as a 15 year old.

The attendance in Cranbrook at the Rec Plex is kind of sad. The Vancouver Canucks winning their 1st round series can be used as an excuse and Shaw TV for another. In the finals that building should be sold out.

The Ice will face either Portland or Spokane. I am on the Cody Eakin and Kootenay Ice bandwagon now.

Ice Ice Baby!!!!!!!

WHL Returns To Victoria.

Well with all of the rumors and speculation going around the past while,I am glad to see it has settled. The Chilliwack Bruins are relocating to Victoria,and I am excited about that because that means I can see hockey in another rink that I have not been too.

It will be interesting to see what the team name will be and what the logo will look like.

I Hope that the Blades stay in Saskatoon though.

Curtis Hamilton Signs With Oilers

This does improve his chances of staying in the AHL full time but strange things have happened before. Sam Klassen, Marek Viedensky and Milan Kytnar were all returned in their overage seasons. Congrats to him after a productive injury free season.

Blades Done in 4.

Finally back from the long bus ride home.

The Blades could not handle a hot goalie and a good Kootenay Ice team. One can make up all the excuses in the world but the fact of the matter is that the Blades are out. Maybe they could be the laughing stock of the league this season? After winning the Scotty Munroe Trophy and breaking numerous records,they fail when it counts.

The Blades will be rebuilding even more so now since giving Brandon a handful of draft picks and prospects.

Also when a team is as talented as the Blades this year with all the experience that they had one would think that they could do some damage. What would it have taken to get past the 2nd round? Swap Eakin for Schenn and add Brayden McNabb as well.

Ok enough with that! Something should be done. If a team does well in the regular season and fails in the playoffs seemly every time they get there,then something has to change. I feel for some of the players that worked their asses off all season and in playoffs as well.

I think that Kootenay may have a tough time with Medicine Hat.

Blades Down 0-2 Going to Cranbrook.

The 1st game was a 4-1 loss,the 2nd game was a much closer 3-2 loss. The Blades played better tonight and it could have gone either way in O.T.

The series now shifts to Cranbrook for games 3 and 4 Tuesday and Wednesday night. I am a die hard fan and I am making the trip on the fan bus to go see the next two games. I survived the B.C road trip so I should be ok with this one..... If any team can come back and win a series down 0-2. I think that the Blades can do it.

The road teams have done well as both the Tigers and Ice have won both games on the road. Let's hope that the Blades can continue that trend.

Blades VS Ice In 2nd Round.

The Saskatoon Blades swept the season series between the two teams,but that almost means nothing now. Look at the fight that Prince Albert put up.

Here is the Schedule: Games 1 and 2 in Saskatoon are on Friday April 8th and Saturday April 9th. Games 3 and 4 are on Tuesday April 12th and Wednesday April 13th. Game #5 is on Saturday April 16th in Saskatoon, Game #6 is on Monday April 18th in Cranbrook and Game 7 would be in Saskatoon on Wednesday April 20th.

This should be one heck of a good series!!

Blades Win in PA!!

Wow What a game to see. The Raiders scored the 1st goal. This game was so tight. So much nerves for at least the fans. The Blades tied the game. The Raiders were starting to tire out as the 3rd period went on. The Raiders iced the puck multiple times and the Blades confidence just built up into the overtime.

The Raiders tried their best to force a game 7. Jamie Tucker is sure a character...let me say that much.... I loved this... Tuuuuuucker... haha.

Matthew Stransky scored the series clinching goal.

The Blades defencemen (Teigan Zahn in particular blocked a lot of shots) The Blades opening video describes it perfectly. Determination,hard work and all of those other things that it takes too win.

If Brandon somehow defeats Medicine Hat,then the Blades will play Brandon but if Medicine Hat wins,then the Blades will play Kootenay.

Games 1 and 2 in Saskatoon are on Friday April 8th and Saturday April 9th. Games 3 and 4 are on Tuesday April 12th and Wednesday April 13th.

I am hoping that I can make another road trip. I would not mind Kootenay. I hear it is a nice
place and I have never been before.

Go Blades Go!!!

Blades Show Up in game #5

For the Blades playing on home ice is huge. There was no scoring until the 2nd period. The Blades are back. They played Blades hockey and did what it takes to win.

8-0 was the final for the Blades. Darren Dietz had a solid fight against Austin Conner.

The Blades will try and end the series tonight in PA. I am hoping that the Blades can score some goals early and take the PA crowd out of it.
