Now That's a Comeback!

In a span of 3:31, the Swan Valley Stampeders turned a seemingly deep 2-0 hole into a 3-2 lead, and eventually a 3-2 win.

The OCN Blizzard scored two first period goals, and did a great job of protecting that lead through 20 and 40 minutes.

But in the third, the Stamps found themselves in the lead, less than 5 minutes into the final frame.

Ryan Marshall scored his second of the season, and first since October 15th, finishing off a great passing play from Shelby Gray and Brent Wilson.

Then, after both teams received penalties just 13 second apart, the Stamps scored twice in 34 seconds during 4-on-4. Defenseman Dylan Trowell scored with a slapshot on a partial breakaway, his first goal of the season, followed by Marshall's second of the period.

Marshall finished with 2g-1a, while linemate Shelby Gray had a pair of assists. New defenseman Brendon "Allegro" Algeo assist on the game winner, logged a tonne of minutes, and was very impressive on the Stamps' blueline. Ask Jeff Peel about the nickname.

Dylan Wells stopped 27/29 shots in the Stampeder cage.

Swan Valley's now tied for first with the Portage Terriers, after Portage lost in overtime in Dauphin. The Stamps host the Terriers on Friday.


The Wayway Wolverines saw their winning streak end at 2 games, after last night's 4-2 loss on home ice against Winkler.

Trailing 3-0 after two periods, Shane Goodrunning made things interesting, sniping his 22nd and 23rd goals of the season, which ranks him 2nd in the MJHL. Goodrunning has 8g-2a during a 5 game goal and point streak.

Paul Van de Velde and Brett Pinkerton had 2 assists each.

Riley Feser made his 3rd straight start in goal, stopping 14/18 shots.


The Yorkton Terriers continue to roll, posting a 7-4 win over Battleford Tuesday night.

Clarke Breitkreuz scored twice, giving him 16 on the year. Robbie Ciolfi, Blaine Tendler, Riley Paterson, Justin Lamontagne and Nathan Murray also scored, while Brent Struble and Davis Vandane added 2-assists a piece. Vandane is now up to a point-per-game, at 4g-8a in 12 games.

Devin Peters racked up win number 16, turning aside 21 of 25 shots.

That's win #20 for the Terriers (20-8-1-3). Next stop: Showcase Weekend in Weyburn. They face Melfort Saturday night, and Flin Flon Sunday afternoon.

Terriers played pretty sloppy last night I thought, scored alot of goals but gave up some easy ones! They let the Stars hang in there and could have cost them.

I win is a win! Sometimes it's not pretty! What matters is you got the 2 points! Have you looked at the standings lately? Terriers are #1! I just can't understand these people that always have something to complain about!
