Live blog: Jan. 2/11 Pats v Hitmen: 2nd period

Scrambly play to start the second for the Pats and the Hitmen nearly take advantage. The Pats are getting sloppy and it's starting to show.

The Hitmen have taken the momentum and taken over the play somewhat.

The Pats deployed their grind line of Neigum-Jung-Rieder and they are too much for the Hitmen to handle and keep the play in Calgary's zone for a good while.

The Pats feel as though they have scored to tie it as the puck went in high off of Mitchell and ref Williams waved it off. Upstairs we go 5:30 into the period.

NO GOAL. Mitchell is adamant that it went in off of his chest. He argues to no avail.

The Pats get a little bit grouchy and take the next shift over. Martell ties it on a rebound low short side getting his second goal of the season at 5:48. Reddin and Weal pick up the assists. 1-1.

Pats go on the powerplay as the Hitmen are called for too many men on the ice at 8:52.

The Pats Reddin gets called for a unfortunate cross check at 9:39 ending the Pats pp early. I would call it questionable... but I'm a bit biased.

Hitmen take back the lead on a bad play by Pats 4 man unit. Berg steps out of the penalty box and receives a pass from Kirsch and goes in 2-on-1. Berg appears to be trying to pass it over but Bell makes a play for the puck and it defelcts off of Bell's stick glove side past Ketlo. 2-1.

As I was typing that last bit Calgary wins an offensive zone faceoff and the puck goes into the slot and Sylvester beats Ketlo with a wrister glove side. Kirsch picks up anothe assist. who was partially screened. 3-1.

The Pats are either having trouble winning faceoffs or Calgary is extremelt good at winning them.

Reddin has taken Mitchell's spot with Weal and Martell on the top line.
Mitchell is with Olstad and Scheidl.

The Hitmen's Schmidt takes an interference penalty with 29.9 seconds left. They can't get organized and get no shots. 1:31 PP left to start the third.

24-22 shots for the Pats.

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...
