|Teams:||Calgary Bisons — 3|
|At:||Calgary Bronks — 3|
This was the best game I’ve seen this year. Both teams kept up an amazing pace for the entire game. The Bronks jumped out to a quick 2-0 lead on first period goals by Jamal Watson and Samuel Megale. Bad blood from a game last week spilled over into this contest as both team played a very physical game.
The Bisons were able to cut the lead to 2-1 during the second period and if not for the play of Bronks goalie Nick Crisanti. Cristani made a number of great saves including three separate breakaway chances.
The third period was much of the same as the first two with both teams leaving it all out there. The Bisons tied the game about a minute and a half in to the period. Hard forechecking from both teams kept the action intense, causing many good chances both ways. Both goalies came up big in the third keeping the game close. The Bronks took the lead on a beautiful effort by Jamal Watson with just over three minutes remaining, but the celebration was short lived. Tanner MacMaster of the Bisons tied the game less than a minute later.
17 Blake Penner (F) — Blake, one of the few bright spots in the Hounds lineup, led the way offensively with a goal and two assists. Blake is a quick skater and handles the puck very well. Blake works hard to gain position in the offensive zone.
16 Braeden Salverda (F) — Braeden is a very hard working player, who was rewarded for his hard work with two goals and an assist in this game. Braeden is a quick energy player who likes to bump in the corners but can also find the back of the net. Five of Braeden’s 10 points this season have come in his last two games.
