Red Deer - It's not good in Broncoland folks.
Five straight road losses and and a growing injury list will make things tough on this team the next couple weeks.
Already without Kyle Bortis,Matt Tassone and Brady Leavold (who may play tonight in Calgary), you can add injuries to Myles Rumsey and Dale Wiese.
Rumsey spent the night in hospital for observation after taking a puck to the throat while blocking a pass last night. We wants to play but I don't think he will get the clearance. Dale Wiese slid hard into the end boards and banged his knee pretty good. He won't play either.
It's a tough one in Calgary in a few hours time as the Hitmen try to snap a three game skid. The Hitmen played last night in Kootenay and lost 5-2.
Their powerplay is ranked tops in the league and that might be trouble for a banged-up penalty kill.
Calgary also beat the Broncos 8-0 in their last meeting as the Broncos played their third game in as many nights.
Special shout-out to the Postma Clan . . . John, Janet and the family. They were out in full force for last night's game in Red Deer cheering on Paul. They tell me they read the blog everyday. If there's a friendlier family in the WHL I haven't met them.
Broncos and the Hitmen on the Eagle tonight beginning at 5:30pm, play-by-play at 6.
Hold on tight,
