This was a game that could have gone either way. Once again, it was an empty-net goal which altered the scoreline at the very end. On the night, the shots were 30-29 in favour of the Bluegars.

There were no line-up changes from Friday night, but for MRU scratching Jamal Watson in favour of Luke Simpson, who I did not notice taking a shift.

The Bisons came out like they were shot out of a cannon. Liam Bilton notched his 4th of the season. MRU took some penalties for hits from behind, one of which knocked Zach Franko out of the game. Since they were already one forward short, the loss of one more made it a 3-line game the rest of the way.

Byron Spriggs got the loss, with 26 saves on 29 shots and Riley Morris got the win with 28 saves on his 29 shots. Morris the Cat is a good goaltender.

The loss leaves the Bisons 8 points behind Lethbridge for the last playoff berth. Next weekend the Bisons play Regina whilst Lethbridge faces Sask. After that, the Bisons host Lethbridge. Had the Bisons beaten MRU once, they would have had a great chance to vault into a playoff position in two weeks.
