The line ups for the game:
|Team Blue||Team White|
|Tyson Brouwer||Chad Fabro|
|Andrew Miller||Tyler Kinnon|
|Charles Dagostin||Corey Miller|
|Rohn Christensen||Tristan Pagura|
|Jordan Busch||Darren Martin|
|Jesse Wallace||Aaron Schrieves|
|Bryce Neilsen||Terry Pagura|

|Mathieu Bouchard||Jeff Shephard|
|Jason Weimer (captain)||Brent Maillouw|
|Tanner Gray||Ryan Bennato (captain)|
|Alex Rosolowksy||Tyler Garcia|
|Jeremy Kwasney||Jeremy Mousseau|
Both captains, Weimer and Bennato received standing ovations. The arena erupted during the ceremonial puck drop for the Ratcliff family.
Here are just a couple of my favourite moments:
- My favourite goal, outside of Bennato’s and Klingspohn’s hat trick, was Jeff Brown’s. He scored 5th goal for the White Team, and you could tell after he scored his goal, the glory days (if you want to call them that) just seemed to come back during the goal celebration.
- Buckley really appeared to still get under players skin on the opposing team, frequently stealing the puck from Weimer.
- As a parent, somehow magically having two B104 shirts land on my kids laps, made parenting easy.
- Listening to the past Dynamiter fans behind me, recalling their favourite moments.
- The unbelievable goaltending by Cam Dodd, he wasn’t just trying to stop the puck, he was attacking it!
|Team||Period 1||Period 2||Period 3||Final Score|
White goals by: Shrieves (2), T. Pagura, Bennato, Brown, Garcia, Shepherd
Penalties: Sibbald got the only penalty of the game for tripping.
Blue Team: Dodd played 60 minutes, faced 42 shots and stopped 35 shots.
White Team: Fabro played half the game and faced 27 shots, stopping 21 (he really got going just before the goalie switch). Mousseau played the second half and faced 20 shots, stopping 15 of them.
The team posted some great pictures on Facebook.

Formosa scored is first goal of three, on a bad giveaway by the Nitro’s to open the scoring. During the first period, Brouwer faced as many shots as a goalie would face during a game. He faced 22 shots, turning aside 21 of them.
The @nitroshockey goalie, Brouwer is on pace to stop 66 shots this game. Making a save a minute.The Nitro’s started catching up to Creston, and eventually tied the game with goals from Buckley and Revie (it was nice to see Revie back on the ice after the hit in the Fernie game).

The Creston goalie, Michalovsky, got away with pushing a stick away, should have been penalized. Not to mention un-sportsman like.
Formosa then added his second and third goals in the third period to give Creston the win.
By the end of the game, Creston had 43 shots on net, while the Nitro’s had 19. Brouwer made 39 saves and kept this game from being a blowout, he is undoubtedly the Nitro’s Player of the Game.
At the end of the game, the coaches had a little pow-wow after the game.
Glad they kept their cool, unlike someone else….

I use nothing but math to determine the power rankings, because if I used emotions, well, Kimberley would always be in the top 3 and everyone else in the Eddie Mountain Division in the bottom 10. I apologize for the length, but hope it helps.
To determine offence I use the teams goals forced average. For defense I use the teams goals against average. The special teams is calculated by adding together the penalty kill and power play percentages (a knock-off version of the Scotty Bowman Index). Goaltending requires a little more legwork on my part, I take the active goalies and add together their saves and shots against to create a team save percentage.
The lower the points the better. The most optimal team would rank first in all four categories, for a Total Points 4. The most non-functioning team would rank 20th in all categories, for a Total Points of 80.
The Hottest and Coldest teams are determined by subtracting LW Points (the total points from the previous weeks KIJHL power rankings) from the Total Points, giving us the difference. The highest positive number is the hottest team, the lowest negative number is the coldest team. I will admit I calculated the "difference" differently, but just using the rankings from previous weeks, but I feel this system really takes into account a teams efficiency.
So let's use the Kimberley Dynamiters as the example. The Nitro's have a goals forced average of 3.32 which is 13th in the league, giving them 13 points in the Offence category. They have a 3.17 goals against average which is 7th best in the league, giving them 7 points in the Defence category. The Nitro's are 17.93% efficient on the PP and 83.98% on the PK giving them a PP+PK of 101.91, which is 8th in the league, which is 8 points in the Special Teams category. The team has a 0.891 save percentage which is 15th in the league, 15 points in the Goaltending category. This is a grand total of 43 points, as seen in the Total Points. With their 43 points, that is 10th out of all teams for Total Points, so they are ranked 10th on the Power Rankings. Last week the Nitro's had 44 points, an improvement (Difference) of 1 point.
Hope this helps!
Now to the KIJHL Power Rankings! The Grand Forks Border Bruins are the hottest team in the league, and the Princeton Posse and Revelstoke Grizzlies are the coldest.
