Broncos 5 Warriors 1 / Road Trip Weekend

As I said this morning on our radio station sportscasts... it was a "ho-hum 5-1 win" over the Moose Jaw Warriors last night at the i-plex to sweep the six-game season series.

The Broncos were very unspectacular in a game that lacked emotion throughout. Travis Yonkman was tested making 32 saves for the win.

Jan Dalecky continues to be on a roll. He now has seven points in his last two games after another goal and two assists. Cody Eakin also registered his 2nd consecutive three point night and Mike Brown triple his goal total on the season from one to three with a two-goal performance.

Colorman Ryan Switzer and I were joking last night on the air in the final couple minutes with the Broncos up 5-1, "I'm just waiting for Terrance Dellorande, Ryley Grantham or Frazier Mclaren to get the tap for the final minute of this one..."

The game ended without incident except for an exchange between Michael Stickland and Brendan Rowinski.

For the most part it wasn't a great effort.

"It wasn't a postcard to be sure. It's a tough game to get up for and as much as you try to prepare the team the same way, as much as you tell them they need to be sharp and focused, you're playing a Warriors team that has had all sorts of struggles, a team we've handled pretty well in every meeting. I thought that was reflective of our play early on, commented Assistant Coach Tim Kehler in the post-game show.

In the end the Broncos posted their 4th win in a row as they leave today for Edmonton for a weekend set with the Oil Kings and Red Deer Rebels.

F Matt Tassone could see action this weekend coming off a shoulder injury. Joel Rogers and Ryan Molle also sat out the game last night but also could be back this weekend.

Time to get and get my gear together... more blogging from Edmonton...
