I woke up to -35-degrees and that didn't include the windchill! A windchill warning has been issued this morning for the Peace Region with a risk of frostbite and wind chills of -45-degrees. Good grief, I think I'll stay inside. On a positive note it is looking like temps above zero for the upcoming weekend.
The NWJHL semi-finals are getting a bit confusing these days. Over the weekend Fort St John and Peace River postponed game 3 due to bad weather. Game 4 went as planned on Sunday with Peace River winning in overtime 4-3. Game three will be made up down the road and Wolverines' voice Dave Dawson is reporting that game 7 could end up back in Peace River because of this. Check out (Huskies color commentator) Mike Feeney's blog on the right hand side for the current, accurate info.
On the other side of the league the Whitecourt Wolverines completed the sweep of the Grande Prairie Wheelers with a 9-2 victory in game 4. They'll await the winner of the other semi-final and return to the championship series for the second consecutive year.
Sportsline goes tonight at 6:05pm PST on Peace FM. We are hoping to chat about the NAHL but we still need a few pieces to fall into place before that can happen. I'll remain optimistic that we'll chat about it tonight. If not we need something to talk about. Any suggestions? Comment below or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
More as it comes to me.
