Back To The Drawing Board

Lorne MollekenIt wasn’t suppose to end this way! The Saskatoon Blades were eliminated from the Western Hockey League play-offs last night when they dropped a 3-1 decision to the Medicine Hat Tigers in game four of their opening round series.

Despite a furious finish a lack-luster start by the Memorial Cup Champs allowed the Tigers to build a 3-nothing lead before the second period was out. The Bridge City Bunch will now await the start of the Memorial Cup tournament which opens May 16th at Credit Union Centre.
