Rally in Red Deer

The Broncos came back from 2-0 in the third and went on to beat the Red Deer Rebels 3-2 in a shootout.

The Broncos were flat and looked rusty through two periods of play but somehow found their game in third outshooting the Rebels 15-3 in the third. Cody Eakin's PP goal on a top circle blast brought the Broncos within a goal just 2:18 in. D Derek Claffey tied it on a slapper from the left circle just 1:13 later.

Broncos Assistant Coach Tim Kehler talked about the Claffey blast that tied it in our post-game show.

"I like to bug Claff a little... he has the dipper and the riser. The dipper is a bit of a knuckle puck I give him a hard time over.... but he got the riser away and it turned out to be a big goal for us," Kehler joked.

The teams would trade a couple chances the rest of the way but the teams would go to overtime tied 2-2 . The Broncos outshot the Rebs 5-0 in overtime but couldn't find the winner.

The shootout would go four rounds with Brad Hoban and Justin Dowling scoring the Bronco goals while Landon Ferraro opened the scoring for the Rebels.

The Rebs pulled starter Darcy Kuemper for the shootout in favor of Kraymer Barnstable.

The Broncos wrap up the weekend tomorrow night in Edmonton.

Just curious when guys from AAA teams like Howorko and Richardson could possible join the club? I understand that it all depends how their clubs do in playoffs but when about to the young players start switching over and such?
