Burnaby/Penticton Update

Game Two:
Penticton rallied in the second game of the series with a 4-3 OT victory on home ice. Paul Crowder assisted on the second Burnaby goal (boxscore). Penticton scored the game winner 13 seconds after Burnaby killed off a 2 minute power play from a hooking call at 2:12 (in OT? ouch). Those goals are tough to take. Bust ass for 2 minutes and get the job done but somehow don't clear the puck that one last time and bing-bang-boom. I hate that.

Game Three:
On Thursday night at home Burnaby dominated winning by a final of 7-2. Paul Crowder's power play goal at 3:10 of the 2nd period proved to be the game winner. The game must have gotten gritty in the third with five fighting-majors, 2 sets of double-minors, and 3 minors and a game-misconduct all at 13:23. Paul Crowder earned 2 for slashing and a 5 minute major for fighting to go along with two other penalties he managed in the first two periods. Here's the boxscore.

Game Four:
The fourth game of the series saw things turn back Penticton's way with a 3-1 victory on the road. Paul Crowder didn't turn up on the score sheet at all. Looks like the Vee's put together a gutty performance in response to a post season that has seen them lose two key players. In game 2 of Penticton's Interior Division Final, Robert Skinner (07 NMU recruit) was hospitalized with a severe head-injury for several days following an ugly crash into the boards; but last word had him recovering well and back at home sometime during the past few days. Additionally they lost Evan Trupp (07 UND recruit) to a shoulder injury in game three. No word on the extent of his injury.

Game Five:
Burnaby took a 3-2 lead in the series with a 2-1 victory tonight (Sunday) on Penticton's home ice. You can find a link to the boxscore by clicking here but as of this time it is unavailable so I have no idea if Paul Crowder scored. I'll add more later but as this is my third post of the evening I'll give my fingers a rest for now.
