Express Win.....Express Win!

Not pretty, but pretty effective! Fort William put up a great effort, but fell short 3-2 to our express. I thought the express out-chanced the FW Northstars and got some timely stops from Luker when they were needed. Both of FW's goals were attached to a good chunk of chance and bad puck luck but they were enough to keep a lead throughout most of the game. The Matic/Soares/Turris line dominated virtually every shift they were out there. Young Turris had the goal of the year in the 2nd period as he one timed a ICBM past the helpless FW keeper, set up by some nifty passes from Soarsie and Matic. This line has been an offensive force every time they have been out there during the RBC. I have a strong feeling we are gong to see a lot more production out of the # 1 line of McNeeley/Irwin/Crowder in the future tourney, they have been contained but certainly not for the future games.

Merth and co. were again passsing out hurt to the other teams forwards and this kept the momentum of play in Burnaby's favour. Very physical out here and all players (offense/defense) are feeling it. Taping a few aspirin on the contusions and these guys are GTG.
