"I would like to thank the Express coaching staff, Barry Wolff, Rob Boyd and goalie coach Joey Ali for making my 20 year old year a memorable one.

The Chilliwack Chiefs are off to the Mainland division final with a 5-1 win in game 4 of the Mainland division semi final vs. the Express. Chilliwack completed a four game sweep of the series. Click here for boxscore

Chilliwack left no doubt early on they planned on putting this series to bed Tuesday.

Kale Kane opened the scoring with a wrist shot from the right wing beating Lawson Fenton. That started the most dominant opening period of the series for the Chiefs. Chilliwack did score four times in the first period in game 2 Saturday, but they really controlled the play in the opening 20 Tuesday that was more lopsided than their four goal game 2 start.

Jake Smith took advantage of an Express turnover two minutes after Kane's goal and snapped home a wrist shot for a 2-0 lead.

Four minutes later Jordan Kawaguchi dug a the puck out of skates in the corner and found a pinching in Rylan Bechtel who snapped home a one timer for a 3-0 Chiefs lead before the game was 11 minutes old. At that point Chilliwack had a 11-2 advantage in shots and finished the period outshooting the Express 16-6.

Mark Esposito gave Chilliwack a 4-0 lead four minutes into the second period.

Austin McIlMurray put his finishing touches on a strong series by scoring his 4th goal of the series, and the lone Express goal on the night pouncing on a loose puck in front of Aidan Pelino.

Ryan Forbes put the finishing touches on the series scoring his 2nd of the series four minutes into the third.

Chilliwack limited the Express to just 14 shots while sending 37 pucks the way of Lawson Fenton.

Not only did the Chiefs sweep the Express in this four game series, they swept all eleven head to head meetings with the Express in the regular season and playoffs.

V. Sukumaran & Lawson Fenton - Photo courtesy of Damon James
It's the first time in 8 head to head playoff meetings between the Express and Chiefs that ends in a sweep. The Express are swept in a playoff series for just the second time in their 15 season history. The previous sweep coming in 2011 at the hands of the Surrey Eagles.

The Chiefs did an excellent job spreading their attack around in the four game sweep with 16 of 19 skaters that dressed for Chilliwack in the series registering at least a point.

Jordan Kawaguchi paced Chilliwack's balanced attack with a two point effort in each of the four games in the series. His final numbers that last two years vs. the Express is remarkable. In 24 games vs. the Express in the regular season and playoffs the last two years he scored 24 goals and 20 assists for 44 points.

Chilliwack will play the winner of the Wenatchee Wild and Langley Rivermen series in the Mainland division final.

I would like to thank everyone with the Express organization for another season to broadcast their games. Everyone within the organization from the coaches, support staff, office staff and most importantly the players who have been excellent to deal with this season and every year i've been involved in the organization.

Thanks to CKPM 98.7 for picking up the broadcasts this year and everyone who took time to listen.

Thank you to the parents of the players for their support this season and taking time to listen to the broadcasts. I really appreciate it.

And thank you for taking time to visit this blog. September can't come fast enough.

Austin Adam's OT goal gave Chilliwack a 4-3 win over the Express in game 3 of the Mainland division semi final. Chilliwack now owns a commanding 3-0 lead in the series putting the Express on the brink of elimination. Click here for boxscore

Lawson Fenton & V. Sukumaran - Photo courtesy of Garrett James
Coming off a lopsided 9-1 loss in game 2 Saturday, the Express needed to find their defensive structure in game 3 that they showed in game 1 that pushed Chilliwack to need an OT win in the series opener. In game 3 Monday the Express found that structure again in their game.

That allowed the Express to keep the game close all night and come within a single shot of a victory for a second time in three games this series.

But for a third straight game in this series Chilliwack opened the scoring. Dennis Chowlowski beat Lawson Fenton with a wrist shot up over his glove.

Jackson Cressey & Austin Adam - Photo courtesy of Garrett James
Special teams throughout the night had big moments at various times in game 3. The Express killed of the second Chiefs power play of the first period with Ryan Coghlan in the box for roughing after he went after Jordan Kawaguchi in frustration after the Chiefs sniper got the better of Coghlan after he lined up Kawaguchi for a hit.

In the final minute of the 1st period the teams traded chances with the Express on the power play. Jake Smith missed an open net on a 2 on 1 shorthanded chance. The Express went the other way and Aidan Pelino robbed Taylor Green on a set up from Colton Kerfoot on a 2 on 1 for a second straight game.

Moments later the Express power play broke through. Cam Bertsch threw the puck at the net from the left wing and it bounced in to tie the game at one.

Ryan Forbes and Linden Hora were called for elbowing and charging second period penalties at the same time giving the Express a full two minute two man advantage. The Express quickly made the Chiefs pay with Austin McIlMurray scoring on a one timer from the left circle set up by Charlie Barrow for a 2-1 Express lead.

The Express power play up until that point had been the lone source of offense in the series. The first five goals for the Express in the series have all come with the man advantage.

In the playoffs mistakes are always magnified much more than they are in the regular season. Teams can't be gifted opportunities when they have the skill to make teams pay.

Austin McIlMurray scored twice - Photo courtesy of Garrett James
That is exactly what happened allowing the Chiefs to even the score. Blake Hayward swatted Kohen Olischefski's stick on the ice away as Olischefski went to pick it up. The officials rightly called Hayward for unsportsmanlike conduct.

Jordan Kawaguchi only needed 20 seconds on the power play to make the Express pay poking home a loose puck for his third of the series to tie the game at 2.

The second period was a seasaw affair and the Express took their second lead, again it was Austin McIlMurray snapping home a pass from Alex Ambrosio in the slot to give the Express their second lead of the night at 3-2.

This lead didn't last either for the Express. Jeremy Germain scored on his own rebound to tie it at three after two periods.

Chilliwack has had trouble shutting down the Express power play in this series. The Express finished the night 2 for 5. But Chilliwack got two big penalty kills at a key time. The Express had their second two man advantage late in the second that carried over into the third period.

The Express weren't able to strike for a second time on a 5 on 3 and the game was tied at three.

Now the series really hung in the balance in the third period in a 3-3 tie. Chilliwack at this point started to control the majority of the play in the Express end. For Coquitlam, they maintained their structure in their own end. And Lawson Fenton shut the door when the Chiefs looked for the lead.

Fenton also got a little help as well as Jordan Kawaguchi rang a shot off the post with the Chiefs on their lone power play of the third period.

Chilliwack's puck control allowed them to slowly apply more pressure on the Express hoping they would crack. The Express did a lot of things right in their own end to battle the game to overtime.

Once overtime began it was more of the same for the Chiefs. Lawson Fenton made his best save of overtime off Jeremy Germain with the Express goaltender down but got his left paid on the Chiefs forward's shot.

The dam finally broke on the Express however. Jordan Kawaguchi behind the Express net found in a pinching Austin Adam and Adam sledgehammered the pass past Lawson Fenton to give the Chiefs a 4-3 OT win and 3-0 series lead at 5:23.

Jordan Kawaguchi showed again Monday why is a money player. He scored another key goal after an Express undisciplined penalty to tie the game in the 2nd period. He then set up the game winning goal to put the Chiefs on the brink of a sweep of the Express.

The Express will be playing for the playoff lives and try to avoid the sweep in game 4 Tuesday in Coquitlam.

Saturday, March 5, 2016


24 hours later it was a stark contrast from game 1 to game 2 between the Express and Chiefs. From a 3-2 Chiefs win in game 1, it was a 9-1 drubbing by the Chiefs in game 2 to take a 2-0 series lead. Click here for boxscore

The only thing that resembled game one was how patient the game was played. At least early on anyways.

The Express completely sat back in the neutral zone with no intention whatsoever of forechecking. And Chilliwack showed no interest at times whatsoever rushing the puck up the ice. Instead the Chiefs, just played catch with the puck below their own goal line. It was a bit of a farce to the game of hockey.

Eventually when Chilliwack rushed the puck up ice they just wanted to get the puck into the Express zone before going to work.

Once they gained entry into the Express zone they faced Tyger Howat who returned to the Express crease after missing the entire month of February with injury. It was a rude return to the lineup for the Express 20 year old goaltender.

Aaron O'Niell opened the scoring for Chilliwack beating Howat with a backhand. From there the floodgates quickly opened.

Jake Smith intercepted a rim around the boards in the Express zone and flipped the puck to the net and Smith found a loose puck and beat Howat with a backhand for a 2-0 Chiefs lead.

O'neill added his second of the net again beating Howat with a backhand to make it 3-0 Chiefs within the first 13 minutes.

Back to back Chiefs penalties gave the Express nearly four minutes of power play time to at least try and cut into the Chiefs lead, but Chilliwack killed off the back to back penalties.

Quickly upon the resumption of 5 on 5 play Vimal Sukumaran ripped a wrist shot over the shoulder of Howat for a 4-0 Chiefs lead.

With a four goal first period lead you would think that the Chiefs just came out guns ablazing. But Chilliwack just took their time to gain entry in the Express zone and broke down their coverage to set up quality scoring chances.

With so much focus on the Express trying to shutdown Jordan Kawaguchi in game 1, that story line was a complete non factor in game 2. That allowed the Chiefs depth to rise to the forefront.

Tyger Howat's return to the Express crease lasted just 20 minutes after 4 goals on 13 shots.

Lawson Fenton shut the door on the Chiefs for the first 15 minutes of the second period.

Then the goals resumed with three more Chiefs goals in the final 5 minutes of the second period by Kale Kane, Jack Smith and Dennis Cholowski to make it 7-0 through two periods.

Very little was left to decide by the time the third period rolled around. Mitch Newsome answered the question of whether Aidan Pelino would post a shutout. It wasn't meant to be on a power play goal by Newsome.

With the score being as lopsided as it was it was understandable that the Express would show their frustrations. Jackson Cressey dropped the gloves with Olivier Arseneau.

Vimal Sukumaran who was getting in the Express face all night got tangled up with Owen Stout. It all occurred right in front of the Express bench and Tyger Howat didn't like the treatment his teammate was receiving and reached off the bench to help defend his teammate. The Express goaltender was ejected with about 9 minutes remaining in the third period.

Chilliwack rounded out the scoring on goals by Jeremy Germain surprising Fenton off a face-off and Kohen Olischefski with one last power play goal.

The Chiefs outshot the Express 45-31. Their depth came shined through with 7 players scoring goals and 13 players registering at least one point.

The Express need to find a way to come up with their biggest performance of the season when game 3 arrives Monday night in Coquitlam.


Ryan Forbres scored the overtime winner as the Chilliwack Chiefs took game one 3-2 of the Mainland division semi final vs. the Express. Click here for boxscore

The Chiefs lead the best of 7, 1-0.

The Express played as close to a perfect road game you could have asked for in a building the Express haven't won in their last 11 visits to Chilliwack.

They played a patient game, didn't allow Chilliwack to run the Express around in their end of the rink. Limiting the quality chances that goaltender Lawson Fenton faced.

Head Coach Barry Wolff gave Chilliwack a different look mixing up his line combinations. Alex Ambrosio took Jackson Cressey's spot centering Colton Kerfoot and Austin McILMurray.

Cressey played on the wing with Mitch Newsome and Cam Bertsch. Cressey did take the majority of the faceoffs when he was on the ice.

The Express came close to opening the scoring in the first period. Ryan Coghan blasted a shot off the post. Seconds later the Express threw the puck at the net and it bounced off the leg of Alex Ambrosio and just wide.

One of the biggest keys for the Express in this series will be how they manage Jordan Kawaguchi. He has torn the Express to shreds the last two seasons. Almost every time the Kawaguchi, Kale Kane and Jeremy Germain line was on the ice they were matched up with against the Mat Michie, Jack Surowiec and Blake Hayward line.

They were responsible for keeping Kawaguchi within an arms length and get in his face whenever possible.

It was scoreless after one period with the Express outshooting the Chiefs 14-10.

Simplicity was one of the best aspects of the Express game all night long. They just threw plenty of pucks at Chiefs goaltender Aiden Pelino whenever they could. That part of the Express game picked up in the second period. Jack Surowiec, Colton Kerfoot, had some of the Express best chances in the opening half of the second period.

At this point in time no one should be surprised who opened the scoring. The Express didn't have the the Surowiec, Michie and Hayward line on the ice, they had a chance to dump the puck in from center ice to make the change and get the matchup they wanted. Then the puck is turned over at the Chilliwack blueline and Kawaguchi is going the other way with it. He beat an Express defender off the rush then bounced the puck in off Lawson Fenton to opening the scoring. Kawaguchi had 10 goals in 6 regular season games vs. the Express this season.

The lead only last four minutes as the Express tied it on a power play goal by Luca Leone coming out the corner with the puck and sliding it between the legs of Pelino.

The Express were in the position they wanted to be in a 1-1 tie entering the third period. Special teams was shaping up to be a big difference maker for the Express in game 1. They killed off a Mat Michie roughing penalty early in the period. Then Austin McIlMurray gave the Express the lead taking a feed in the slot and scoring to put the Express up 2-1 with 12 to go set up by Jackson Cressey and Colton Kerfoot.

Then the Express penalty killers rose to the occasion shutting down a Chilliwack poweprlay with Nic Coltura in the box.

As the clock ticked down to the final minutes the Express were doing everything right to close out game 1 and come away victorious. They were getting pucks deep in the Chiefs zone, they were responsible defensively, getting in shooting lanes and blocking shots protecting the middle part of the ice.

Chilliwack made their final push in the final minute pulling Aidan Pelino and Austin Adam came off the bench as the extra skater. Adam found the puck on his stick at the line and did the smart thing throwing the puck at the net and it bounced to the stick of Jordan Kawaguchi who scored the tie the game with 57 seconds left.

It is becoming the stuff of legend the amount of massive goals that Kawaguchi has scored against the Express the last two seasons. He has 23 goals in his last 21 games against the Express. The vast majority of those goals have all been enormous.

In overtime the Express made an early push looking to end the game with chances for Alex Ambrosio and a Luca Leone defection.

Overtime only lasted four minutes. Ryan Forbes carried the puck into the Express zone, cut into the middle and fired a wrister that powered through Lawson Fenton and trickled into the net to give Chilliwack the come from behind game 1 win.

Despite the disappointing setback, the Express have to focus on the solid effort they put forth in game one. The outcome didn't go their way. But it wasn't from a lack of solid play. Another structured effort in game 2 could put the Express in a position to come home for game 3 in Coquitlam with a split.
