Last Shot Wins In Surrey

The league needs more Family Day games. Or it just needs more games between Chilliwack and Surrey at the South Surrey Arena.

Surrey’s 7-6 victory over the Chiefs marked the second time this season Peter Schaeffer’s club had knocked off Chilliwack by that final score – The Eagles won a 7-6 game back on November 8th.

It was last shot wins, and a total ball from an entertainment standpoint. Unfortunate the Chiefs didn’t get the result they were looking for though, as Braeden Russell beat Spencer Tremblay from the right circle with 39 seconds left in the 3rd.

It would have come with a little more detail in their own end of the rink. The season series is now tied at four with one more to come February 15th in Chilliwack.

Scattered Thoughts:

– Andrew Silard was named third star in this game. He finished with one goal and two assists on the afternoon, and the last couple nights, he and Jaret Babych (also with a goal and an assist) have become a formidable tandem, bringing the energy (read: Hits. Quite a few.) and scoring the two goals that tied the game in the third period after Surrey had struck on a 5 on 3 to go up 5-3.

– Carter Cochrane put the Chiefs up 6-5 in the third period (also on a 5 on 3) with his 16th of the season. Carter finished with three points on the afternoon, now leads the team with 45, and was (literally) everywhere in this game. That’s not hyperbole either. Fun to watch. He’ll do some good things with Everett in the Dub next year.

– I mentioned the 5 on 3 Surrey scored on to go up by two in the first minute of the third – that penalty was taken by Blake Gober, which is a shame because it came at the end of one hell of a shift he had: A couple scoring chances, a hit, and some real intensity at both ends. Only one shift, and there were others, but that one stood out at the time.

– Zach Diamontoni with a four game point streak and three goals in his last two. Nice deflection to put the team in front late in the first. Staying with streaks, Babych has points in five of his last seven, as does Andrew Silard. Jordan Kawaguchi has at least a point in six of his last seven games, including a nice shot to beat Bo Didur early in the first period on Monday. His linemate Mason Boh has points in four of five games as well. Jake Hand has points in four of six, including a goal Monday. Mathieu Tibbet has points in seven of nine.

– Chilliwack scored 19 goals in three games this weekend. Point streaks add up, is what I’m saying. They also had two goals called back on Monday. The second one was shrouded in a little controversy, as Zach Diamontoni appeared to score on a delayed penalty. The whistle blew a half second before the puck went in. I didn’t see it hit a Surrey stick before it got to Diamontoni, and Doug Ast said on the postgame that there wasn’t an explanation. The Cochrane goal followed anyway, but still. Coulda been nine this afternoon.

– The usual suspects for Surrey showed up on Monday. The Renoufs (combined for six points) Danton Heinen (hat-trick) Anthony Conti (two assists) Peter Schaeffer’s got a good mix of size for the areas in front of the net, and skill along the walls in the Renoufs. They’ll be a tough out in the postseason.

– The season series is now tied at four, and there’s one more to come. That’s fine with me.
