Game 2 : Real Quick….

1. One night after it seemed like Kirk Thompson was Martin Brodeur, Vladislav Tretiak, and the April-June 2012 version of Jonathan Quick all rolled into one – The Chiefs chased him in the second period of game 2 after five unanswered goals. Sports sure are funny sometimes. I did very politely suggest on Saturday morning that the Chiefs were capable of putting a few pucks past the Spruce Kings netminder from time to time. Thompson will bounce back, as will Prince George as they return home, but it was good that the Chiefs did not allow Thompson to get inside their heads going into a crucial game 3.

2. I understand that there will be some Prince George fans/players/management upset that the Chiefs were ‘running up the score’ in this one. My counter: The Spruce Kings were frustrated (not that I blame them. I would be too, if that was me down there.) and proceeded to take a number of silly penalties born out of that frustration.

If you’re gonna do it that way…..well….you know….Wouldn’t you be more offended if Team X just moved the puck around the perimeter and refrained from shooting? Chilliwack’s top players spent a large chunk of the third period on the bench. I think it was handled properly.

3. Game one was classified as ‘Just one game’ from both sides. This game will earn that same distinction from both sides. The score is irrelevant at this point.

4. The Spruce Kings were out of this one early on in the second period, so I can’t get a feel for how charged they were offensively, but the Chiefs have done a pretty good job keeping their opponents’ quality scoring chances to a minimum. The Spruce Kings may be heading home, but they’re also heading home to a smaller ice surface, where their smaller forwards have had a heck of a time with the big Chilliwack D around the net. Pressure’s on the Spruce Kings to answer back in a big way on Monday.

5. Chilliwack went 4-0 in the Prince George Coliseum this season.

See ya Monday.
