Burnaby Loses 1st Game, Wins 2nd

On Saturday evening the Burnaby Express opened their Royal Bank Cup tournament with a game against the host Streetsville Derby's. Playing a team on their home ice after they've had a month's rest is definitely something to not be misjudged. Streetsville scored 2 third period goals to tie the game after Burnaby led 3-1 at the end of the second period. Their goal at 7:58 of OT secured what must have been a pretty sweet win for the hometown crowd. Paul Crowder picked up an assist on the second Burnaby goal. Here's the boxscore.

For their 2nd game of the round-robin tournament the Express faced the Yorkton Terriers Monday afternoon. Paul Crowder's goal at 8:28 of the 1st period gave Burnaby a 2-0 lead which Yorkton cut to 1 with a power play goal at 16:38. After a scoreless 2nd period Yorkton tied the game at 9:44 of the 3rd on another power play goal. Burnaby answered 1 minute 10 seconds later and sealed the 4-2 victory with an empty netter with 6 seconds remaining. Here's the boxscore.
