The Swift Current Broncos lost 4-2 to the Calgary Hitmen but no need to worry Bronco faithful you guys are still in second place in which appears to be the crappiest division in the history of junior hockey. So you can still smile and your team can suck as bad as they want and odds are you will still find a way to squeak into the playoffs. Next to the Prince Albert Raiders you guys don't even have a hockey team in your whole division.
Anyway back to the game. Cody Sylvester scored a beautiful goal halfway through the first period assisted from Greg Chase and Brady Brassart to put the Hitmen up 1-0. Then Finlandnavian goalie put in some effort to stop it but ultimately fell during the puck going into the net.
Then with 2 minutes remaining in the 1st Adam Lowry decided to try his skills at fighting with Spencer Humphries. Lets just say the UFC is not going to be calling on Lowry's door step anytime soon. Since he is a Winnipeg draft pick make sure in the future if he plays there to not go down in the North end unaccompanied. Humphries pumpelled him. Stick to scoring goals Adam.
The second period was fairly uneventful although young Josh Thrower of the Hitmen got into a scrap with Chance Lund who is old enough to be Throwers father. Thrower held his own and did well.
Then in the 3rd Pavol Padakin made it 2-0 for the Hitmen while shorthanded.With an assist from Samoridny. Then less than a minute later Graham Black realized that he was in a hockey game and scored. Then 5 minutes later he scored again. At this point it was starting to look like a real game. Then we had 2 more fights with Nedomlel fighting Rissling and Reum fighting Helgesen. Then a little over a minute later Peter Kosterman scored on a beautiful shot from the hashmark with assists to Rask and Macek. And to seal the game Padakin got his second of the night on an empty need from Jake Virtanen.
Also at the end you had your usual Darian Henry riling up the other team and Bronco Josh Derko got a 10 minute misconduct because of it. I love watching Henry play out there he just pisses the other team off And then skates a way with this funny looking grin on his face.
Basically an easy win for the Hitmen even though they played like crap. Next game is in Lethbridge on Tuesday and then back at the dome for Wednesday to face them again.
As for the Broncos have fun in Edmonton tommorow night thats all I can say.
