I know it's been awhile since I posted on the blog. I guess since the season has ended.
Even though the Express are done, i've still been seeing a lot of hockey. I watched Brady Cook's brother Matt play in the sledge hockey tournament at UBC a few weeks ago. What a experience that was. Truly phenominal how fast and physical that game is.
I went and saw Calgary play Vancouver last Friday in the game of the year in the WHL... WRONG! Man what a dud that was. But Calgary played well defensively and shut down the Giants. Had a quick chat with former Express Keith Seabrook after the game before he hopped on the bus for the 12 hour ride back to Calgary. Good to see he's doing well. Said he's hoping to play pro next season after his junior career is finished. Who knows, he may be back in Vancouver in a few months playing for the WHL Championship.
I've also been watching some of Surrey's playoff games. I've been there for all 4 of their wins thus far in the playoffs. All 3 on home ice in overtime. Games 3 and 4 vs. Langley were some of the best BCHL playoff games i've ever witnessed. True beauties. However, last night's 1-0 Surrey win over Powell River in OT was the exact opposite. No intensity at all. No, emotion. Good to know that was the exception rather than the rule. Nice to see former Express Spencer Bennett score the game winning goal on a powerplay.
Game 4 goes tonight in Surrey.
That's it for now,
Talk to ya soon.
