Kamloops Blazers burn Regina Pats 5-4
Some questionable officiating in this one. I'm not normally one to overly complain about the stripes but I wasn't impressed at all in this one. I still don't understand the reasoning behind the non-goal but good teams should have the ability to overcome any adversity but unfortunatley the Pats weren't able to.
I am starting to really have issues with Guhle as the Pats' netminder of the future (or is it now?). He goes down into the butterfly waaaay too early and lets in some weak goals. He's a good goalie but I think the Pats should give Tendler a shot... I really hope Ketlo is healthy soon.
I hope Hampus gets here soon so maybe the Pats will move Bell back to D and re-arrange their corps. When the game is on the line Hunt only uses 4 d-men anyway so would it even make sense to move a future franchise d-man back to defence? I think so.
I wasn't happy with a few players last night.... I won't mention names but yeah I wasn't impressed.
I did however like how Eberle, Teubert, Delahey, Bell, Mulder, Hood, Davidson (other than one ugly turnover) last night.
I look forward to seeing the game against the Hurricanes.
