Monday Randoms

- Can the Broncos get Tuesday's game against the Regina Pats changed to Wednesday instead? There's a really odd stat which has developed which has the Broncos 1-8 on Tuesday's this season but 8-1 on Wednesday. You figure it out.

- The Broncos would love nothing more than to "aid" the Pats pursuit in making the playoffs, and by aid I mean hurt. The Pats have won two straight games after sweeping a home and home against the Warriors. The last time the Pats beat a team other than Moose Jaw was January 28th against Lethbridge.

- The Broncos have their own problems to worry about though. A .500 hockey team in the 2nd of the season just hasn't been enough to instill this team as a contender. They will be in a battle in the opening round with whoever it is and if they can survive that, they're probably looking at a Brandon or Calgary match-up. In which case the Broncos are 0-11 against those two teams. Somehow the Broncos have to overcome the stigma of "they're good but...."

- In case you haven't noticed, Calgary has 112 points this season. That's 20 more points than the east division leading Saskatoon Blades. They are having some kind of season.

- There's a battle brewing locally with the "AAA" midget Legionnaires. With two games to play in the regular season the Legionnaires are two points out of a final playoff spot. It's a gap they've closed considerably in the last month. The Legionnaires play in Regina Wednesday and then host the league's top team in Notre Dame on the weekend. The story here is the Legionnaires will host the Telus Cup Regional Tournament in the first week of April. Missing the playoffs would mean nearly five weeks off between games.

- Big vote in Moose Jaw Wednesday. That's referendum day as citizens go to the polls to vote for or against the Multiplex proposal. We will touch on it again tomorrow night before face-off.

- Finally, here's some cute pictures of my best friend's twin boys Jaxon and Kruz supporting their favorite WHL team.

The best part.... they live in REGINA!

Their first WHL game was back in January as the Broncos came back to beat the Pats 5-3 at the Brandt Center.

More tomorrow,

The only reason they are wearing Bumcos shirts is because their Dad is to tight to buy Pat`s stuff. Unless...
