The AJHL Playoffs are underway!!

The Grande Prairie Storm have started the defence of their AJHL title against the Lloydminster Bobcats on Thursday night. (And in what seems like a "tradition" now, all the Storm players dyed their hair BLONDE!!) Talk about a special way to start off the playoffs, Lanny MacDonald came to the game and did the opening faceoff.

Lots of kids, young and old alike, got autographs from Lanny, it was pretty cool.

The game Thursday was an interesting one, the Storm opened up a 4-1 lead going into the third period, but seemed to take their foot off the gas and let the Bobcats back in. Final score....

Friday night, the Storm and Bobcats were back at it again. After a tight, no scoring first period, the Storm came on in the second. The Bobcats opened the scoring in the second, but then, Dennis Rix decided he had had enough of that. Rix scored a natural hat-trick in the second period and the score was 3-2 Storm after 40 minutes. Rix then scored his fourth goal of the night, the game winner, 11 minutes into the third. The Bobcats made it interesting getting to within one, but an empty net goal finished the night as the Storm went on to win....

Here is one of the Rix goals.....



The next game is today in Lloydminster. The Storm could sweep the best of five game series today.

GO STORM!!!

The Grande Prairie Storm advance to the second round of the AJHL playoffs and are one step closer to defending their AJHL title



Quote:
The long bus ride home will be a little easier for the Storm.

Grande Prairie jumped out to an early lead and never let up, advancing to the second round of the AJHL playoffs with a 4-1 win over the Bobcats in Lloydminster.

Matt Williams, Dan Correale, Taylor Rovatti and Travis Dunstall provided the offence for the Storm while Chad Carder made 24 saves.

The Storm notched three goals on the power play and allowed just one power play goal for the Bobcats.

“It was the first game that really had that playoff feel,” said head coach Mike Vandekamp. “It was more intense, more physical. We were prepared for that. We knew they were going to have a lot of life.



GO STORM!!!

Camrose defeated the Calgary Royals 3-1 last night taking the 5 game series 3-2. They sure gave them a run for their money, didn't think Camrose would have a issue with the Royals, but then again I didn't think Okotoks would finish first in the south division.

Round two starts tomorrow:

Rosie and I went to the first game of round two tonight against the Ft Mac Oil Barons. No question about it, it was an entertaining game. Hard fought, great plays, lots of big hit and pretty damn fine goal tending at both ends. Just too bad those mollusks from the far north of Alberta won the game... :evil:

Final score......

Game two tomorrow night

Game two of the second round series between the Grande Prairie Storm and the Ft. Mac. Sludge Monkey's (Sorry, Oil Barons) went tonight. Rosie and I watched a very hard fought, emotionally charged game with some great play, awesome goals and a fair tad of extracurricular activity.
The difference tonight! The good guys WON!!!!!!

Final score.....


Image.....4.....Image.....2

The series is now tied at one a piece and now moves up that utterly lonely stretch of highway to Ft. Mac. for games 3 and 4. Here's hoping our boys just come back with only two wins and no funky diseases from that quaint little northern town... :twisted:

GO STORM!!!

OVERTIME HEARTBREAKER

BOXSCORE

Chad Carder made 47 saves, but it wasn’t enough, as the Storm fell to the Oil Barons 4-3 in double overtime at Fort McMurray.

Branden Gracel scored at 17:39 of the extra frame, giving the Oil Barons a 2-1 series lead. Dennis Rix, Taylor Rovatti and Zahn Raubenheimer provided the offence for the Storm.

Grande Prairie went just 1-for-7 on the power play, but had better luck on the penalty kill, going 8-for-9.



Game four goes tonight In Ft Mac. Here's hoping the Storm can get a split against the Sludge Monkeys and come home with the series tied at two a piece.

It's do or die for the Storm the rest of the way. Down 3-1 in the series they have to sweep the final 3 games to get to the next round. They had a 14 game winning streak during the regular season, 3 wins in a rows is sure doable... :wink:

GO STORM!!!

STORM LOOK TO RE-GROUP
Sat, Mar 13 2010

The Storm will be fighting for their playoff lives when they return to the Canada Games Arena Sunday.

James Isaacs scored the game-winner in the second period, as the Oil Barons edged the Storm 3-2, to take a 3-1 lead in their second-round series.

Taylor Rovatti and Josh Phillips scored for the Storm, who started the game without forward Travis Dunstall. Dunstall was given a one game suspension for allegedly pushing an official on his way to the penalty box Thursday night.

Grande Prairie went 0-for-6 on the power play and allowed three goals with the man advantage.

"There have been a lot of special teams in this series so far," said head coach Mike Vandekamp. “We had the best line on the ice in the first period. Then two thirds of that line spent more than half of the second period in the box. It seems like the wind gets taken out of our sails.

“Their penalty killers did a good job. We still have to get a little bit more fire in our eyes. Your key players have to get the job done.”

Final shots on goal were 34-27 in favour of the Storm.

Well, no easy way to make this post I can tell ya. Tonight, it was do or die for the Storm. Rosie and I both commented on the intensity and raw emotion in the Canada Games Arena for this game.

Nether team disappointed as this was the toughest fought, tightest played game of this season. After one period..1-1...shots...13-11 in favor of Grande Prairie. After two periods.....2-2.....shots...11-7 in favor of the Storm. At the end of regulation....2-2....shots....11-5 in favor of the Oil Barons. Half way through the second overtime period.....The Oil Barons finished the series.
Final shots.....38-37 in favor of the Storm.

Final score.....


Image.....3.....Image.....2

The Oil Barons win the series 4-1. They now go on the face the league leading Spruce Grove Saints. Good luck to them the rest of the way!

For us, the season is over and what a great year it was. The Storm had their ups and downs, but there were far more bright moments for Rosie and I then dark ones. Can't wait till next season, good luck to all those Storm players who are moving on, you will be missed. Great Season Guys!!!



GO STORM!!!

On the upside, Olympic silver medalist Kristie Moore, who was part of the Canadian women’s curling team, did drop the ceremonial puck.

That was kinda cool. :D
