Season on the Line

The Broncos took the day off today away from the rink in the middle of this 2nd round series with Calgary.

Last night's game was the slowest pace we've seen from these two teams in this series and don't think for a second that double overtime Tuesday night didn't play a factor.

Game four was a game which was going to come down to which team took advantage of their opportunities. Calgary scored twice on the powerplay, and that was that. On the flipside, the Broncos powerplay struggled going 0/4. They even had a PP late in the third down 3-2 but didn't even really get set up in Hitmen territory. Calgary had the better special teams and it was the biggest factor in game four.


Today the guys were allowed to sleep in a little. Some spent time with family, some were bussed down to the Chinook Shopping Center for a few hours. A team meal, followed by some NHL playoffs and that takes us up to now.

I won't get into the cliché slinging, we all know the situation.

The uphill road starts tomorrow night. I'll have more before the 7pm face-off.
