Lightning, Dragons, and Broncos

Tuesday night the Broncos hosted the Swift Current Initiation Lightning and the Dragons - they were the winners of a recent promotional contest to see who could sell the most Bronco tickets.

Here's a look at the event in pictures.

Face-off!







Do the Broncos need some motivation to knock-off the Warriors this weekend? Probably considering they've clinched 3rd while the Warriors remain in a heated playoff battle.
Here's some motivation. From Warriors Head Coach Rene Lemaire "It's no secret we're not playing the top teams in our own division (to close off the season), so I don't want to say it's going to be a little easier but mentally for the guys it will be hard to compare the Broncos and the Blades to Regina and Brandon. They are top teams in this league and Saskatoon and Swift Current are probably more our level as you compare horses to horses."
Interesting.

Hey Jon (and Regan if you're reading this),

It has nothing to do with the Broncos, but a radio listener here posed this question for me. Neither I nor Rids knows the answer. Perhaps you do.

If the MH Tigers win their final two games & Everett loses their last two, they'll be tied for points & games won total.

In "Goals For" the Tigers have the advantage, but Everett won the only head-to-head game.

Who would win the WHL pennant?

Have a good weekend, man.

Hey KJ,

I believe it would be then awarded to the Vancouver Giants, haha. That's if it was up to head office.

Actually, I think it would be the Tigers because of the head-to-head victory. It always comes before the goals for/goals against stat.

Great question though.
