Tough Week Ahead for the ’67’s

In sports, the schedule is often your best friend one week and your nemesis the next.
For the Ottawa 67’s, they’ve already experienced the friendly aspect with a well-spaced schedule of games while the team tried to gel as a unit. The real test in just on the horizon though, with a total of four games this week and three of those on consecutive days.
“We’ve had a pretty light schedule, as far as workload is concerned,” says defenceman Carter Trevisani. “This is really kicking our season off and it’s going to be tough.”
The 67’s will travel to Kingston to face the Frontenacs on Tuesday and then have a short break until the busy weekend. Friday is a home game against the Sarnia Sting, and then the 67’s will hit the road again to play the Toronto St. Michael’s Majors on Saturday and Don Cherry’s Mississauga Ice Dogs on Sunday.
Though the Sarnia Sting are the only opponent playing above .500 hockey this season, 67’s coach Brian Kilrea warns against taking any of the teams lightly.
“You don’t look at a team as being weak or good or bad… if you don’t come ready to play, it’s not going to matter,” says Kilrea. “You have to play well to get your points.”
Though the Frontenacs are the team the 67’s will be preparing for first, captain Zenon Konopka says the busy weekend is in the back of everyone’s mind.
“All the guys have been working out hard at the gym and this is why we do it,” he says. “These three game weekends really push your body, but we’re Read more»

Fortunes freezing up for the ICE

Fortunes freezing up for the ICE

What’s wrong with the Kootenay ICE? For the first time the club’s four-year history in Cranbrook, that’s the question being asked with more and more frequency among the ICE faithful. And with two important home dates this week against the defending Memorial Cup champion Red Deer Rebels on Wednesday and a Prince George Cougar club that is finishing a long road swing into Alberta and Southeastern B.C. on Saturday, the Key City club has a limited amount of time to find the solution to their woes and prohibit themselves from falling to a 4-9 record on the young season.

After a 4-1 loss to the Kamloops Blazers at home last Friday and a disappointing 4-3 road loss to Medicine Hat the next evening, calls of a familiar ring around the Kootenay ICE this season reared its ugly head once again – sub-par goaltending. It’s a cause that after Friday’s loss to the Blazers, Coach McGill vehemently begs to differ. “It’s unfortunate that our goaltender played very well tonight and our other guys didn’t show up and help him out,” said McGill of rookie Bryan Bridges performance against the Blazers. “(It’s) very uncharacteristic of the way we’ve played lately as far as our defensive game and not allowing many shots . . . We’ve got a long ways to go.”

Against the Blazers it was a defensive unit prided on its depth and experience that had trouble containing the speedy and physical Kamloops forwards and allowed an un-Kootenay like 38 shots on the rookie Bridges while a stymied offence only generated a paltry 21 shots on the Blazers’ Steve Belang Read more»
