Broncos Host Cougars
The Broncos play their only home game this weekend as they host the Prince George Cougars - the WHL's last place team with a record of 3-12-0-1.
The Broncos will only have to worry about themselves tonight. They've lost four in a row and need to get out of their recent funk. At 9-2 on home ice, the Credit Union i-plex has been a safe-haven for the Broncos who remain winless on the road at 0-7-0-1.
The Cougars come in after losing in a shootout 5-4 in Kelowna Wednesday night. They continue the swing tomorrow night in Moose Jaw. They will be without their most dynamic player on this trip as F Brett Connolly is out with a hip injury.
The Broncos have apparently mixed up some of the lines for this weekend's three-game set. We will see what the coaching staff lays out. The team will finish off the weekend with road games in Lethbridge Saturday and Calgary Sunday.
The Broncos last played Wednesday in a 2-1 defeat in Saskatoon. Assistant Coach Tim Kehler joined us on the post-game show and re-iterated the fact they need more out of certain players. He stopped short of naming names though.
"Well...we're naming names in the dressing room and those players have been told who they are. I don't think you have to be much more than a casual observer to know what's going on. There's people that need to be better, players that have been in our league for a number of years and we expect them to contribute." - Tim Kehler
We're on the air at 7pm with the pre-game show, 7:30pm play-by-play. It's on the Eagle 94.1 FM. Our internet streaming was down for a time Wednesday. I've been told it's fixed and working again.
Last night at the Buffalo Brew Pub, the Eagle 94.1 hosted our Kiss: Live Like a Rockstar Finale. We had our final contestants dress-up as members of Kiss. Best get-up gets the prize pack... Eagle listener Eldon proved to be biggest fan.... literally!
Here, he poses with Eagle Sales Manager Donna White:
Yes he won.... we weren't about to deny the big man for fear of repercussions.......
Have a good weekend,
