Enough is Enough
Tonight's game against the Warriors could be a crossroads for this Broncos hockey club.
They need to end this little funk tonight against a team that has had their number recently. The Broncos have also lost four straight against divisional opponents which has allowed the pack to catch them.
With Prince Albert losing in Vancouver and Regina getting only a point in a shootout loss last night in Moose Jaw, the Broncos are still clinging to 2nd place. The Warrriors remain in last in the east but are playing better hockey lately.
Their new look lineup featuring Jason Reese, Brady Calla, Cody Thoring and Michael Hengen has brought them some results. The Warrriors big line of Reese, Calla and Riley Holzapel will need to be looked after.
Yesterday was a nice day, my first day off in '07. It's been a busy hockey schedule with the Broncos, plus throw in a couple "AAA" Legionnaires broadcasts in the new year. Broncos Athletic Therapist Paul Ayotte and I went down to the Riverdene outdoor rink and shot some pucks around for a bit. Then there was last night's successful Field of Dreams Sportsmans Dinner hosted by the Swift Current Indians. Riders d-lineman Scott Schultz is sure a character. You ask him anything about his teammates, or the football season and he'll give you an honest answer. It's easy to see why he's on the sportsmans dinner circuit picking up some extra $$ along the way.
Broncos need this one tonight . . . a game recap will follow.
Enjoy your Sunday,
