Jr. Playoff Update

The Spruce Grove Saints are playing the Camrose Kodiaks in the AJHL semi-finals and are down 3-2 in the best of seven series. The 6th game is in Camrose tonight at 7:30. Kane Lafranchise and Ryan Berry each scored gaming winning goals in the 2 Saint's victories. Spruce Grove is currently ranked as the 9th best team amongst all the junior A leagues in Canada.

Paul Crowder was the second star of the game in the Burnaby Express' loss to the Victoria Salsa in game 1 of the BCHL semi-final best of 7 series. Paul had 2 goals in less than three minutes early in the 2nd period to tie the game but Victoria came back ten minutes later to go up 4-3 and the game remained scoreless after that. I'm thrilled to see that Crowder is back on the ice after his nearly season long injury AND he doing VERY well. In six games he has 6 goals and 4 assists. Burnaby is ranked as the 15th best team amongst all CJAHL teams.

Kevin Clark and the Winnipeg South Blues won the first game in their best of 7 series for the MJHL league championship against the OCN Blizzard. Kevin assisted on the 4th goal midway through the 3rd period and accounted for 4 penalty minutes (roughing and slashing) in the game. Winnipeg is currently 6th best nationwide in the CHAHL rankings.

More as the playoffs progress.

This isn't related to the post, but I thought you would find it interesting how the "Curse of the Seawolf" ended the Gophers season.
