GAme 6 Drumheller at Trail

drumhellerminers

traillogo2

The Smoke EAters stuck to their successful lines in game four of the series and it seemed to work again, barely. Paul Martin opened up the scoring for Drumheller scoring midway through the first period to send a bit of a chill throughout the packed house at the Cominco Arena. But just before the period ended Andrew Ladd took a feed from Patrick Kane and evened up the game as the first period came to an end. Patrick Kane, with a nifty pass from Andrew Ladd, then gave the Smoke Eaters the lead near the end of the second period, but Drumheller was not to be denied. Pascal Dupuis scored with just 39 seconds left in the period to tie the game and send the third period into a wild frenzy.

Trail outshot the Miners 17-2 in the third period as Mike Ribeiro got pined and Mike Fisher saw more ice time on the second line. The defensive presense seemed to help the home team. But nothing was solved in the third period despite the shots all being Trail’s way. A very nervous crowd downed some beers in the intermission and got set for overtime, which could result in anything. But the home team responded early as Bryan Little, who was subbing for a tired JOnathan Toews, took a pass from Patrick Kane and went upstairs on Jimmy Howard to give the Smoke Eaters the win and the series. Trail outshot Drumheller 38-18 in the game as Jimmy HOward was terrific.

Game 5 Trail at Drumheller

drumhellerlogo


With the series tied 2-2 Drumheller pulled out all the stops to take control of the series. The early action saw Crosby, Dupuis and Kunitz taking extra shifts and it paid off as Kunitz scored from Crosby at 2:21 to put the Miners in the lead. But less than a minute later the Miners tried to force the play with Crosby winning a face off, but Wheeler hard check won control of the puck for Trail, Ladd to Wheeler, and we are all tied up. Then at the 8:00 mark Fayne and Greene got the puck up ice to Ribeiro who set up Bickell for a one timer and all of a sudden it is Trail dominating play with a 13-5 advantage in shots.

The second period was north south hockey until Neal took a roughing penalty at 9:23. The Miners killed off the penalty, but before Neal could get back in the action Evander Kane, and Ribeiro had once again set up Wheeler who beat Howard to the glove side. Trail 2 Drumheller 1. Following a Keith penalty which Trail killed off the Smoke Eaters were at work again with Evander Kane feeding Wheeler at 17:06 for his 3rd goal of the game. The video review team looked it over and ruled that Howard had held the puck out of the net so on we to period 3 with Trail leading 3-1.

Trail went into a bit of a lock down allowing only 8 shots in the 3rd period to 4 for the Smoke Eaters. At 10:01 Neal hit the crossbar which would have closed the gap, Keith sealed the victory with a late empty netter with only 1:02 remaining. Crawford was outstanding in net, and once again Wheeler came up big on the score sheet.

Back to Trail with the Smoke Eaters looking to close out the series.

Game 4 Drumheller at Trail

drumhellerold

trailroad


Trail changes up their lines a little bit and it seems to pay off. Either that or Howard just had a bad night. The Smoke Eaters put six past the Drumheller netminder to even up the series and send it back to Drumheller. The fourth line seemed to be the key for Trail as they chipped in two goals. Patrick Kane led the way with 2 goals and an assist and fourth liner Mike Fisher had a goal and an assist.

Game 2 Trail at Drumheller

trailsmokeeaters

drumhellerminers


Down one game to none the Miners put themselves in a hole again allowing Trail to score first at 4:57 with Toews and Wheeler setting up Ladd to make it 1-0 Smokies. Late in the first period Greene had a costly turnover allowing Wideman to score a goal at 19:59 that was reviewed but stood up to tie the game.

:21 seconds after Drumheller had tied the game Wheeler, Toews, and Letang combined for a goal early in the 2nd period. The second period was back and forth play off hockey with Drumheller taking two minor penalties, but Trail unable to capitalize. They were the only penalties of the game. In a period where Trail dominated play they still allowed Kunitz to tie the score at 2-2 at the 9:26 mark. Trail capped a very good period by Fisher setting up Sharp at 19:26 to put the Smoke Eaters back on top to end period 2.

Drumheller had a slight advantage in period 3 but Howard was the key to the game. He stopped 31 of 33 shots, and kept the miners close when Trail was trying to put the game away. At 13:28 Stoll won a face off in Trails zone, worked his way to the net, and when Fisher blocked a shot Stoll tucked it in the net to tie the game. Then late in the 3rd period following a Howard save, Suderi out muscled Saad for the loose puck, fed it to Vermette who was breaking out, then the pass went to Gionta who made a nifty pass to Neal who roofed it in the top corner over Crawford. The Miner’s dodged a bullet with the late goal and head to Trail with the series all tied 1-1.

Game 1 Trail at Drumheller

drumhellerminers

Opening game of the Savage Cup did not start well for the Miners. Trail scored three times in the first 6:03 to open up a 3-0 lead. Drumheller came out to start the 2nd period with Crosby scoring at :24 to cut the lead to 2 but after a Wideman penalty Saad scored at 15:09 to extend the lead. Miners scored early, Kunitz at 1:40, and late Neal at 15:51 but could not get the equalizer or overcome the 3-0 hole they put themselves in. Game was very evenly matched, and was true play off hockey with only 2 penalties.
