I dozed off during the 2nd intermission and awoke to see the Bisons lost. The Bisons got off to a quick start and could have had a big lead. However, it was just 1-0 for the Bisons after one, and tied 2-2 after two.

Liam Bilton scored his 8th and Justin Augert his 5th for the Bisons. Austin Vetteri, Jessi Hilton, and Nick Buonassisi scored for UBC. Eric Williams got the win, stopping 26 of 28 shots. Byron Spriggs took the loss, stopping 32 of 35 shots.

The win assures UBC of a playoff berth and tied them with Manitoba. Both teams would place 4th if they win and Calgary loses in regulation, 5th if they win and Calgary gets at least a point, and 6th if they lose.

The H0rny Ones scored twice in the first 1:10 of the game. However, by the end of the 1st period they were down 3-2. They rallied to force OT but in the end ran out of Viagra. Bedrock U had the shots edge, 42-25. Steven Stanford got the win and Damien Ketlo the loss. The result eliminates Lethbridge. Calgary needs one point on Saturday to clinch 4th. If they lose in regulation they will finish 5th.

The Evil Monkeys racked up a serious win on the road. Mount Royal needs to win the return match in regulation to claim 2nd. MRU became the first team to lead the shot clock against the Monkeys all season, by 27-26. The Monkeys out this one away with 5 goals on 11 shots in the 2nd period. Luke Siemens got the win and Cam Lanigan the loss.

The least significant match-up of the weekend. First beat worst. No shock there. The Banjocats actually held a 3-2 lead in the 2nd period. The Mutts outshot the Kittens 43-31 on the night. Jorodn Cooke got the win and Dawson McAuley took the loss.

While attending a show by Winnipeg punk rockers Propagandhi, I was following the LeagueStat scoreboard, much to my delight. Coach Sirant must have shipped his last bottle of Viagra to the H0rny Ones to help them beat the Dinos. Then his own charges took care of the rest.

The striking aspect of the summary is that Justin Paulic had a great night. He was first star and made 23 saves on 25 shots through two periods. Then the Bisons slammed the door in the 3rd, yielding just 5 shots whilst holding a 3-2, then a 4-2, and finally a 5-2 lead.

Jordyn Boyd (his 2nd) and Jordan DePape (his 19th) gave the Bisons a 2-0 1st period lead. Jessi Hilton (his 6th) put the Birds on the board before the period was over.

In the 2nd period, Kyle Becker (his 4th) made it a 2-2 game. However, Liam Bilton (his 9th) restored the lead for the Bisons. At that point, the shots were 25-14 in favour of UBC.

The 3rd period saw the Bisons go into shutdown mode. Giving up only 5 shots will usually preserve a lead. Brett Stovin scored his 12th and Shaw Merasty his 14th to insure the victory, and 4th place. When your best players are your best players, you usually win.

UBC also went away from their goaltending rotation, starting Eric Williams once again. He stopped 17 of 22 shots. In contrast, the Bisons continued their rotation, switching from Spriggs to Paulic.

As an added bonus, Jordan DePape wrapped up the conference scoring title.

After Friday's loss the Bisons needed some help from the H0rny Ones. And it looks like they have Dylan Tait to thank. He backstopped the Horns to victory by stopping 43 of the 45 shots he faced. The game turned around in the 2nd period when Bedrock U outshot the Horns 20-10, yet were outscored 3-0. Steven Stanford took the loss for the Dinos. Lethbridge was led offensively by Mitch Makin, who scored his first two goals of the season to be the unlikely leader. Bedrock also dressed just 19 players for the game. Mr. Slate will not be happy with this.

This was a very atypical victory for the Evil Monkeys. It was a low scoring, low shots on goal kind of a game. The shots were just 22-20 in favour of the Monkeys. The only goals were a powerplay goal in the last minute of the 1st period and an empty-netter. Luke Siemens got the shutout victory and Chris Collins took the loss for the Bluegars. MRU is a good defensive team, so they should have been comfortable with this style of play. There must be some level of disappointment for MRU, after losing the race for 2nd to Calgary last year and Alberta this year, and having the lead in both cases late in the season.

There is joy in Regina as a dismal season ends with a win in the Battle of the Banjos. I hear that for the win the Regina campus will get one roll of store-bought toilet paper for each outhouse, courtesy of Premier Wall. Combined with new kazoos for their symphony orchestra, things are really looking up in Regina.

In goal, Mitch Kilgore got the win and Blake Voth took the loss, each making 27 saves in a very tight game. Regina built a 3-0 lead in the 1st period but by the end of the 2nd it was 3-3. The Mutts tied the game at the 19:32 mark and there must have been quite the brouhaha afterwards. Each team had two players get 4 minutes for roughing and a 10 minute misconduct.

At some point late Saturday night/early Sunday morning, the CW site developed some glitches. On the [[COLOR="Red"]Schedule/Results Page[/COLOR]], and many links to "Boxscores" from throughout the season suddenly vanished. Many random sampled links to "Recap" (i.e. game stories) now link to a different game. It seems that the old links I included with prior posts still work. For February 13th, no current links exist for boxscores for Sask at Regina and MRU at Alberta. Nor is there a link to the Manitoba at UBC game story, or "recap".

Also, the standings expunged the records of Lethbridge and Regina. Both teams were listed at 0-0-0 etc. The standings at LeagueStat did include their records.

Other links were just added late:

Updates and Previews

The late Saturday night mess up at the CW's [Schedule/Results Page] has yet to be resolved. But more links have been added. There are also various stories on the pending playoffs from across the country.

UBC clinching playoff berth:
:. [Ubyssey Story]

UBC was happy to secure a playoff berth after being on a downspin in the 2nd semester. Yet they must see Saturday's events as a blown opportunity to host the quarter-finals. And we did eventually get a CW link to the Saturday game story, complete with picture, summary, and boxscore link.

The Montreal Gazette seems to be pessimistic about the Habs and sees the McGill-Concordia match-up as what may be a rare chance to see playoffs in Montreal this spring.

The OUA East appears to have three mismatches. I doubt that any neutral fan picks UQTR, McGill, or Carleton to lose even one game in their series. That Queen's-UOIT battle should be tight every game. Overtime in game one was really to be expected.

The whippings in the OUA West are disappointing. It is the division with no real contenders in it. It would appear that Toronto and Laurier are not up to snuff.

These teams just played 2 weeks ago in the Bisons' final home games of the season. So, not much to add to that preview!

The teams are #11 and #12 in the OHT36 national rankings. It was not until the final game of the season that the Bisons clinched the race for 4th, capitalizing on Bedrock's loss to Lethbridge. The Dinos were in serious danger of missing the playoffs after going 4-7-3 in the 1st half. They rallied in the 2nd half, going 8-5-1. Their season peaked in weeks 11 and 12 when they swept 4 games against Alberta and Mount Royal. However, with a shot at 4th place they closed with a sweep at the hands of the Bisons and a split with Lethbridge.

Despite the 4 straight wins in head-to-head play this season, the teams have been very close over the years. In the last 5 years, the Bisons are 12-5-5 and Calgary is 10-11-1.

In the 1st half, UBC was 7-4-3. In the 2nd half, they fell to 4-9-1. No doubt that UBC has been on the decline this season. Meanwhile, MRU just finished a disappointing end to the season where they lost the race for 2nd place. They were solid all year long. In head-to-head this year it was 2-2, with MRU leading 5-4 on points. Since MRU joined the league, UBC is 10-4-2 and MRU is 6-7-3. That means OT in 5 of 16 games. On the season, MRU had a big edge in GF and GA. MRU was 100-73 and UBC was 72-90. I am wondering what they will do with goaltending. For UBC, Mark Hewitt seemed to be #1 yet Eric Williams got both starts last weekend against Manitoba. After riding Chris Collins in the 1st half, MRU started to start Cam Lanigan every Friday.

This was a peculiar game. The Dinos came out firing, but most of their best chances saw them shoot wide or high. After the Bisons killed a 1st period penalty, they opened scoring on a scrambled goal scored by Warren Callis. After the goal the Bisons went into a defensive shell and wound up being outshot 12-2 on the period. This could have proved hazardous.

The 2nd was a different story. The play was more wide open. The Bisons took a 3-0 lead on goals from Shaq Merasty and Brett Brooks. Both plays involved the Bisons playing hard through the slot and Bedrock watching and putting up only limited physical resistance. Merasty's goal followed some hard work from Jonah Wasylak, who was flat on his back when the goal was scored. Brooks' goal was a wrap-around scored while Schreyer was being shoved by a Bedrock defenceman in the crease. The Dinos got one back when Elgin Pearce showed great patience dragging the puck through the slot before flipping it in.

The Bison approach to the 3rd period was just to kill time. Let the clock tick. The shots were 11-4 in favour of Bedrock U.

Game two goes Saturday at 7:00 p.m. at the Wayne Fleming Arena on the U of M Campus. Game three, if necessary, goes Sunday at 3:00 p.m.

Here's how they lined up:

After a plethora of one-sided games on Wednesday, Friday was overtime night. Many people fancied Ryerson in pre-season, so maybe a playoff run following a mediocre season is in the cards for them. Only one of the four series is going the distance. After two overtime games, the anticipated closeness of the UOIT-Queen's series has come to fruition.

One bizarre thing about the OUA is the extreme shots totals. There were 87 shots in McGill/Concordia, 66 in OUIT/Queen's, 78 in UWO/Laurier, and 93 in Waterloo/Ryerson. All winners on Friday won the shot clock battle. Queen's was the only team with fewer than 30 shots.

I had to miss this game but did watch lots at CanadaWest.tv. The Bisons controlled territory and possession but Steven Stanford was more than equal to the task. Brett Stovin scored the sole goal for the Bisons and Elgin Pearce scored twice for Bedrock U. Justin Paulic took the loss in the Bison goal. The rubber match goes Sunday at 3:00 p.m. The winner will be off to Saskatchewan next weekend for the semi-finals.

MRU built a 4-1 lead after 2 periods, but UBC came back to make it 4-3 early in the 3rd period. However, MRU scored mid-way through the period and then another pair of goals 10 seconds apart to seal victory. Colin Cooper got the win and Eric Williams suffered the loss. MRU will visit the Evil Monkeys in next weekend's semi-final round.

There were no games in the AUS because both quarter-final series were swept on Friday. In their semi-finals, New Brunswick hosts UPEI and St. FX hosts Saint Mary's.

In the OUA East, the only series going the limit is UOIT v Queen's. The winner of that will visit UQTR in one divisional semi-final whilst McGill will host Carleton in the other.

The OUA West is more complicated. York v Toronto and Guelph v Windsor are both going to game 3. If York wins they would host Ryerson in one series and Western Ontario would play the Guelph/Windsor winner in the other. However, if Toronto pulls the upset they would visit Western Ontario in one series and the Guelph/Windsor winner would host Ryerson in the other.

This was a game of ebbs and flows. The Dinos were dominant in the 1st period and built a 2-0 lead on two goals by Spencer Edwards.

The Bisons must have had quite a pep-talk at the intermission as they came out dominating the Dinos physically and generating several scoring chances. Justin Augert trimmed the lead to 2-1. And after he did so the Bisons were very unlucky to avoid the tieing goal.

The 2nd intermission again caused the game to turn. An early borderline penalty call gave the Dinos the chance to score their 3rd powerplay goal of the game, and Elgin Pearce cashed in. Once down 3-1 the Bisons lost all jump as Bedrock U pulled away.

So now the Bisons are in next-year country. The team should have lots of optimism since the entire roster is eligible to return. They will likely want at least one more defenceman. Otherwise any new recruits would have to be good enough to replace an existing player.

York finished 1st in the OUA West. However, they missed the playoffs last year and were only 18th in the OHT36 rankings. They were a very vulnerable 1st place team, even against a mediocre team like Toronto. After such an easy regular season schedule, it is perhaps fitting that Windsor got the shoe. The UOIT-Queen's series was a toss-up on paper and it figured to go the distance.

Sask dominated the stats a lot more than I thought they would. In Friday's opener, they outshot the Dinos 81-37 in a double overtime win. In Saturday's clincher the shots were 41-24, yet it was not decided until an empty-netter sealed the deal. Jordon Cooke got both wins for the Mutts and Steven Stanford suffered both losses for Bedrock U. Calgary dressed 2 men short on Friday, andone man short on Saturday. After a 3-games-in-3-days quarter-final against the Bisons, Bedrock must have been somewhat worse for wear.

After barely scraping into 2nd place, the Evil Monkeys tore the Bluegars apart on Friday night. The Saturday game was only decided by an empty-netter. The Monkeys stuck with Luke Siemens for both games, as did MRU with Chris Collins. The Monkeys carried the play both nights, with shot margins of 32-17 and 32-24.

So the Monkeys and Mutts are assured of berths in the nationals. The last time that happened they met in the final.

The Bisons wrapped this up on Friday night. The Bisons were 2nd and MRU 7th in the regular season. There were three quarter-final series and the three winners join 1st place Alberta in the Final Four. The other series produced upsets. #6 Trinity Western beat #3 Calgary and #5 Saskatchewan beat #4 Winnipeg, both series going three games. In next weekend's games, it will be Alberta v TWU and Manitoba v Sask in the semi-finals.

MEN'S BASKETBALL

The Bisons got a bye to the quarter-finals. The CW has two divisions (the 11 long-time conference members in one, and six newcomers in the other). The divisions blend for the playoffs. Four teams played the play-in round this weekend, with the two winners slated to join the 6 teams who had byes in next weekend's quarter-finals.

This weekend, both series went the distance and were very close. Alberta beat MacEwan and Regina beat Winnipeg. Next week the match-ups are:

Lethbridge at UBC
Fraser Valley at Manitoba
Alberta at Calgary
Regina at Thompson Rivers

CWUAA news: [Derek Ryan to NHL] : [All-Stars]

This was a rare event. The Evil Monkeys were outshot! The Banjomutts outshot the Apes 34-28 and Jordon Cooke stopped everything he faced. The Mutts scored power-play, even strength, penalty shot, and empty net goals. And had four different scorers. This ended a 6-game winning streak for the Monkeys. Too many people had the Monkeys pencilled-in as champions, after having swept aside the Mutts a couple weeks ago. However, the Monkeys are missing something this year. They would still be favoured against any team other than UNB at the nationals. But they are not invincible.

The news links are worth a look. Former Monkey Derek Ryan has made it to the NHL. And this year's all-stars were announced. Included were Bisons Jordan DePape (1st team forward), Adam Henry (rookie defence), and Brett Stovin (rookie forward). It is noteworthy that five 5th year Monkeys were selected to either the 1st or 2nd teams. The Bisons would have liked to see Shaq Merasty picked. Here are the complete selections:

First All-Star Team
Name / Position / University / Year / Hometown
Jordon Cooke / G / Sask / 2nd / Leduc, AB
Jordan Rowley / D / Alberta / 5th / Edmonton, AB

The rookie-laden Mutts completed an unlikely run to a Canada West title with a convincing sweep of the veteran-laden 2-time defending national champs. What makes these results rare is that Alberta was outshot, albeit just by 31-28.

Both sides now advance to the nationals. Sask has to be seeded in the top 3, and Alberta will likely be seeded 5th, barring an upset loss by UNB.

It is fitting that this series is going the distance. Both sides are mediocre bit have periodically teased with possibilities of better-than-averageness. After Sunday's game 3, one of these teams will host UQTR in the Qieen's Cup and be assured of no worse than a 4th seed at nationals. The other will have to win a road game at Carleton to become the 8th seed at the nationals. Pretty strange.

FWIW, the Urban Cowboys lost to UQTR 5-2 and to Carleton 4-3. Goof U lost to UQTR 2-0 but beat Carleton 2-0.

This one was played on Sunday night. In the end the Urban Cowboys claim another OUAW title and are thus assured of nothing worse than a #4 seeding in the Univeristy Cup. Even though they were ranked only #19 after the regular season and the teams they beat were #25 Laurier, #29 Toronto, and #22 Guelph. They also get a break in that the Queen's Cup (the OUA conference championship) must be held in Ontario. So they will host UQTR on Saturday. Goof U must travel to play Cartoon U in a bronze playoff for the final berth in the University Cup.

UNB's incredible hot streak comes to an end. Due to the CIS seeding process, they cannot be seeded higher than 5th at the University Cup. So they will be playing the loser of the Queen's Cup game in the opening round.

What about The Jeremies? They were #4 in the OHT36 at the end of the regular season and have beaten #7 and #1 in the playoffs.

The Bison Broads almost pulled off the improbable 3 consecutive road series wins needed to make the nationals. As it is, 5 road wins must be some kind of record.
