Refereeing continues to be an issue as the Riders lost yet another player to an uncalled head shot Tuesday and Travis Thomsen missed Wednesday's game. The Nitro's took a turn howling at the ref Wednesday, the PP stats were Fernie 1-10 and Kimberley 2-3... and as you can see the Rider PP without their "C" Cole Keebler wasn't good while the Dynamiters PK and PP numbers were about as good as they get.
Both teams lost a hi end player, Fernie - F Zach Befus (5-cross check and GM )and Kimberley D Jordan Busch( 5 for head contact and GM) Rider Justin Peers and Nitro Austin Moser didn't finish the game either.
The Riders did very well in the physical part of the game with all their biggest players out of the lineup with injuries. Dan Burgess, Coleton Dawson and Travis Thomsen were all out and in the PO those larger players win games.
Jeff Orser was stellar until he misplayed a puck while out of the net in the double OT.
Tyson Brouwer who had the shutout Tuesday his (8th) was very good Wednesday... but human... for a change.
The Riders had goals from Trevor Broad, Justin Peers (who was playing well until he was hit in the head) and Evan Reid with the tying G. Mack Differenz played well for the Riders and both him and Kevin Pierce (98) had 2 A. Reid missed on a clear cut breakaway in the OT as well.
Kimberley goals were from George Bertoia, Brodie Buhler, Eric Buckley and Korbin Chabot (99) in OT.
In other news Creston is up 2-0 on the Rockies who are playing a very tame style with low PIM (what are they thinking)
BV is up 2-0 on Nelson but the games have been closer than you would think.
Castlegar and Grand Forks are 1-1, the winner of the Eddie Mt will play one of those teams.
Osoyoos is up 2-0 on North Oak, surprise surprise
Chase and Kamloops are 1-1
100 leads Revelstoke 1-0
Kelowna leads Summerland 1-0
