Some thoughts from the game.....
Damien Ketlo is really making me a believer. I honestly don't recall a goalie making saves of the spectacular sort like he has recently and he made at least 2 or 3 of them in this contest. He's getting better each game.

For all of the Colten Teubert haters out there.... Grow Up! He has been a beast recently and in this game he was a stalwart on D. I've noticed that people near me aren't on him as much.... until he makes what people perceive to be a mistake by him.... in my opinion the errors are becoming few and far between. He's becoming a real leader.

It was nice to see Carlson get his first as a Pat, especially against his former club. He has been a fine addition to the Pats blue line corps. His speed and his puck moving ability have helped the Pats backend a ton.

Strueby scores a couple of his specialty...garbage... goals. At least you know he's going to the net and getting chances. Goals are goals and the more he scores the better it is for the whole team.

A couple of nice snipes by Leffler who seemed like he tried to pick the team up and put them on his back for periods of time. It was like he was trying to will the team to win.

Jordan Weal was truly amazing this game... he was all over the ice and all over the score sheet picking up 4 assists. His effort and his creativity cause the opposition to pay that much more attention to him freeing up his linemates for scoring chances. Could have easily been the first star.

Jordan Eberle is truly a gift for us fans to watch. I know he gets a ton of press and attention but this kid is special. I hate drawing comparisons to former Pats so I won't. All I know is that in my thirty years of watching Pats hockey he is one of the best.

I wish I would have taken a pen to scribble notes down but I didn't and I was going by memory and mentioned the players that really stood out. Gardiner had a good game (getting some ice time now), Hutt is getting his stride, Davidson was again solid, Mitchell finally got his first of the year and is looking more and more like he's going to take the next step, Gustafsson seems to be getting it now and soon he will break out. I have nothing bad to say about this one so I won't try to drum up anything.

I will post my Pats/Blades thoughts tomorrow.

August 4th

There are a few Pats Alumni with birthdays: There are a handful of #ReginaPats alumni with August 4th birthdays... Peter Sternig (1944) Bob Taylor (1946) Glen Burdon (1954) Dean Solheim (1958) Jamie Dubberley (1966) — Kevin Shaw (@theblueliner) August 5, 2021

I've been trying to think about...

how to add more content to TheBlueliner but I'm not sure what I want to add here. I keep on saying to check back in the near future but I just never get back here. I have a couple of other things going on and I hope that I have more time to focus on things that I can put here. Seeing as Twitter is my main source I'll start embedding my tweets here. Earlier in the year, Rob Vanstone did a story on me for the Leader-Post which I'll share here: As far back as 41-year-old Kevin Shaw can remember, he has been fascinated with the @WHLPats — as evidenced by his extensive collection #WHL — Regina Leader-Post (@leaderpost) February 7, 2020 Some of my regular daily Tweets include Pats Alumni and their birthdays. I usually write a small biography on each player that had birthdays. July 11th's @WHLPats alumni birthdays...
