Time to check in after a day of no blogging. Internet has been down both at Peace FM headquarters and at home the last couple of days.
We're up and blogging now and hopefully won't run into anymore issues.
I'm listening to "Leafs Lunch" at the moment on am640 in Toronto. The Leafs are going through a tough stretch here and they are talking about how they are getting away from the strong forecheck that made them so successful early in the season. They are not getting the pucks to the net like they were early on.
I mention this because it seems very similar to the Jr Canucks.
The Canucks had gotten away from the hard work that had made them successful early in the season. They found that gear once again at about the 8 minute mark of the first period Friday night. After going down 2-0 to the Sexsmith Vipers, Colter McLean turned things around and the home side dominated the final 50+ minutes en route to a 7-2 victory.
Are the Canucks truly out of this funk? We'll find out on Saturday night.
The Fort St John Huskies will visit the Canucks on Saturday. It will be teddy bear toss night at the Memorial and I understand there will be a chance to win a turkey as well. I'll post more on that later this week when I find out the info.
Sportsline is on the air tonight for the second ever show. I'm still working on lining up some guests but you can be sure to listen in for Canuck talk tonight. We're on the air from 6:05pm PST - 8:00pm PST
I did a little more Christmas shopping over the weekend and I'm almost finished too. I took a few more snapshots for my wish list and will do some photo blogging later today. Hopefully. No guarantees. I'll be busy working on Sportsline today.
I called a pair of novice hockey games on Sunday. It was the Chetwynd ConocoPhillips novice tournament this weekend and I was there for day 2. Chetwynd ended up in the championship game against Grande Prairie but it was the road team winning 6-3 and taking the tournament.
I'll also post some photos from the game as well at some point.
I've got my opinion on the latest Sean Avery incident but I'll save it for Sportsline tonight. Also, we'll talk Canucks and the NWJHL. Should be good. We'll also open up the phone lines and take your calls.
Check ya later,
