Blazers Host Bruins

It's the fourth meeting of the season between the Blazers and Bruins tonight. Chilliwack won the first two but the Blazers won the last contest earlier this month at ISC 5-1.

It was a game in which the Bruins called one of their worst efforts of the season. We will see how they respond tonight.

As for the Blazers, the injury situation is still holding this club hostage. They've recalled Matt Needham. That could give them nine forwards for the game. F Bernhard Keil may be available (today's also Keil's birthday) Jordan DePape, Chase Schaber, Dalibor Bortnak and Thomas Frazee likely all won't.

There's never a "good time" for injuries but they come at an absolutely crucial part of the schedule. The Blazers play five games in a row against BC division opponents.

Face-off at 7pm at ISC. One of our guests during tonight's game on Radio NL will be CBC Sports Director of Production Joel Darling. He was the driving force behind the WHL game in Whitehorse next month as part of Hockey Day in Canada celebrations.

A great game last night, lots of energy on both sides, physical and a ton of emotion. It was well officiated as well until . . .

It is to bad a great game had to end on a weak stick infraction in the last minute of play that did not prevent or result in a scoring chance.

Keener, enjoyed your call of the game on WHL Neulion but I have to let you know, it's CraTSenberg, not CraSTenberg. Thanks!
