Burnaby Wins; Winnipeg Loses

Paul Crowder potted the game winning goal for the Burnaby Express in a somewhat strange 1st game for the Doyle Cup (BCHL vs. AJHL) against the Ft. McMurray Oil Barons Friday night. Apparently neither of these two teams was tight or suffering from nerves as they combined for 7 goals before the 1st period ended. Ft. McMurray scored 4:32 into the game but Burnaby answered just 35 seconds later. Things got kind of slow for the next 19 seconds before Burnaby managed to scored again. Then a horrendously long wait of an almost unimaginable 2 minutes and 54 seconds before Burnaby went up 3 -1. Ft. McMurray pulled back to within a goal about three and a half minutes later. Crowder put Burnaby ahead permanently with 5:45 left in the period. The Oil Barons finished their scoring with 11 seconds left in the period. Burnaby added a goal each in the second and third periods to seal the victory 6-3. The game was relatively penalty free and Ft. McMurray outshot Burnaby 30-22. Here's the boxscore.

Things couldn't have been more different Friday night in Yorkton, Saskatchewan in the opening game of the Avanet Cup series between the Winnipeg South Blues (MJHL) and Yorkton Terriers (SJHL). This game went to the second OT before Yorkkton broke the 1-1 tie to win. Kevin Clark scored Winnipeg's 1 goal at 11:11 of the 1st period. And that is all I'm gonna say about that. Here's the boxscore.
