I apologize for not posting a game review for the last couple games. I have been in the process of moving into a new house. In fact, I have been carrying furniture and boxes since 8 this morning. So I couldn’t be more excited to be at the rink!!!
The Battlefords North Stars find themselves with a 4 and 10 record so far this season and they are currently on a 5 game losing streak. They have also lost 5 in a row at home. It’s been a very difficult stretch. Several 1 goal losses and then last night. The Stars played well in the first and third but weren’t at their best in the second frame. That’s when the Yorkton Terriers scored both their goals.
The Stars recently lost a 1 goal game in Humboldt in another game in which the Stars played well and came up just short.
The Broncos won last night in Kindersley and are now on a 3 game winning streak. In 4 games this season Ryland Pashovitz has 2 shutouts and a league leading goals against average. He was solid in Humboldt when the Broncos beat the North Stars 4-3. He’s yet to be beaten with a perfect 4-0 record.
The Broncos get balanced scoring from several lines but are lead by the likes of Pongracz, Miazga and Aubertin.
The Battlefords North Stars will be without Blake Young and Jake McMillen tonight as they are now away in Calgary for the World Junior A Challenge Team West tryouts. With a couple of top forwards missing the Stars will have opportunities for guys to get some more ice time.
North Stars Lineup:
Erickson – Schmidt
Fransoo – Lacoursiere
Gosselin – Chareson
Forbes – McColgan – Evans
Quinn – Keller – Greenaway
Carlson – Reich – Petrino
Fountain – Delainey – Leonenko
Scratches – Sheeran, Heinrich, Young, McMillen, Bechtold
