Well that was a pretty good game tonight. There was a good deal of effort put into things, especially near the end. There were a lot of flashes of potential there as well. It was great to see some hard fast skating, especially from the d-men. There were a few promising rushes, that over time will become more and more successful. I thought Hobbs looked really good at times. The time that comes to mind is when the Blazer had about three steps on him heading for a loose puck in the defensive end, and he blew right by him heading towards the side boards. Speed and effort...
And Dana Tyrell had a few great speed/power rushes as well that I hadnt seen in the other games I had been to this season.
I came away from the game tonight with renewed hope for next season. As was stated in the post about friday's game, there does seem to be improvement.
There was some excitement in the building. Last game of the season added to it I suppose. The tributes to the older players were a nice touch.
Overall, a great night with lots of positives. Keep up the effort, the future is now...

we really dominated that Bloozer team for about 50 min of the game. If they did control play in our end, we kept them away from the dangerous areas and really kept them to the outside a majority of the time. Very few 2nd or 3rd chances were allowed and Cyr did his job well. That first goal looked to be a lob from the point and Cyr was screened by a couple of Cougars so call it a well-timed shot I guess. Their young goalie Pristner looked very good many times and really deserved a first star. If it wasn't 20's noight then I am sure he would have. Can't say enough about the youth again. Bidlevski showed flashes of huge speed at times. Hobbs is developing in massive steps at this point...really developing an aggressive offensive mindset with consistancy (pinching in at the right times, rushing, jumping up and joining the attack, etc). Stanfield, Maylan, Watson starting to show consistantly that they can be very tenacious on the forecheck as well as race up and down the ice with reckless abandon. With another 10-15 lbs of muscle on that frame, Maylan, Tyrell and ??? will be killer on the PP and on 5-on-5. C Tyrell came a long way this year too and should settle in on as high as the second line nicely next year. Poulter will have to be more consistant and confidant but could be right up there with our best. The stange one right now is Hunt. He doesn't see all that interested in being intense, won't hit anybody, and has completely lost confidence and ability to score right now. Maybe a summer off to re-think why he is playing hockey will help. He has received EVERY opportunity to improve here with loads of ice time and the best of line mates but since his early injury, just has not been able to regain the fire he showed in the first several games of the year where he WAS dominant. GOOOOOOOOOOOOOO COOOOOOOOOGS!!!

I was sitting behind the net on the Kamloops goal, and cyr did not see it. It was a floater from the point that somehow made it through the bodies in front and found the net. Cyr leaned to the left a bit to try and pick up the puck, and it went in on his right. A tough break for sure, but thats the way it goes.
What happened to Hunt earlier in the year? How did he get injured? Maybe it is still in the back of his mind, and affecting his play...
