Dah dah dah KOOTENAY SUCKS the Saddledome yells out last night during a 4-0 embarasment lose by your eastern division leaders to the team in dead last in the standings in the whole Western Hockey League. It didn't look as stupid when the crowd was yelling it after Brock Montgomerry scored in the first 21 seconds of the opening face off. Even after his second goal just a while later. But once he burried the Hat Trick to ensure the Ice a 3-0 lead it started to look dumb.
The Ice over the night almost doubled the Hitmen in shots (34-17) and the Hitmen gave back up goalie Mack Shields no help what so ever during the whole game. While Mackenzie Skapski sat at the other end and got an easy shutout which he probably never expected to get that easy on the bus ride over to Calgary.
The Hitmen should all start adding ov's to the end of their names as they really are starting to play like Russian players in the way it looks like they show up when they want to.
Zach McPhee also got a goal with an empty netter. Sam Reinhart and Jaden Descheneau also each got a pair of assists each.
Fights: Hegelsen and Wand. Mike Simpson and Spencer Humphries had a great fight after Humphries got upset that Simpson laid a clean hit on Brendan Hurley.
So basically the Hitmen snapped a 5 game winning streak against the last place team. The youngest team in the WHL. Which was missing 3 of their better players (Philp, Benoit, and Boyd). Wonder what the bag skate was like after that game?
