Winnipeg South Blues Sent Golfing and Burnaby Express Series Tied 2-2

On Wednesday night (facing elmination) Winnipeg scored 2 third period goals to send game 4 to overtime; where Kevin Clark picked up the lone assist on the winning goal at 7:56. But Yorkton sent the South Blues to the greens with a 5-3 victory Thursday night. Kevin Clark scored Winnipeg's first 2 goals (14:02 of the 1st period and 14:56 of the 2nd) and added an assist on the 3rd goal. I know I gave Kevin some shit here about the penalties but looks to me like the kid played smarter the last couple of nights. He did pick up penalty minutes both nights but contributed by assisting on an OT game winner one night and scoring 2 goals (plus an assist) the next is a big enough offset to earn him a break. The next competitive hockey for Kevin will come in a Seawolf jersey.

Ft. McMurray tied the Doyle Cup series with a 5-4 win Wednesday night in Burnaby. Paul Crowder scored with 5:08 remaining in the 1st period to put the Express up 2-1 going into the second. The series resumes Friday night and judging by the close scores might easily need the full 7 games to determine the winner. I'll follow up after game 6.
