Great picture from the Vees facebook page of my buddy Murray Maxwell from the Vees support staff raising the Fred Page Cup last night in Powell River as the Vees swept the Kings with a 3-2 win. Congrats to the Vees, and good luck against the AJHL Champs, either Fort Mac or Brooks. The Bulldogs are represented on both sides of the series, with Mike Puddifant on Fort. Mac and Dylan Nowakowski and Tanner Hicks play for Brooks. Tough luck for the Kings, losers of the Fred Page Cup series four straight years and now two straight years going down in four straight. The Kings should be proud of their accomplishments, this year and in the four previous years. Having said that, it has to seem pretty hollow at this moment being so close yet so far away.
The quote of the day today comes from a Vancouver Newspaper - I didn't read the paper but it goes something like "it was only fitting that Dustin Penner scored the winner, as the Canucks were flat as a pancake all night"

If you aren't aware, Penner injured himself this year while eating pancakes for breakfast. And WOW were the Canucks ever flat! It could have been 5-0 five minutes in if not for Roberto Luongo. The Kings looked like a Sutter coached team, while the Canucks looked like...nothing good for the most part. Here's hoping they find some urgency and intensity for tomorow, or this run could be a short one.
The first MEN'S NIGHT of the season goes tonight at the Alberni Golf's tonnes of fun, with great food, great prizes, and the course is in great shape! Get out there and have some fun! That's my little guy Griffin above, still a little young for Men's Night, but I'm training him. Thanks to Bruce for the mini-club!
