In two games played against the Castlegar rebels, there have been 21 goals. 14 of them have been for the Nitro's.
Castlegar opened the scoring. And then the Nitro's scored two. Then the Rebels tied it back up. And then Richter potted one on a delayed call. Giving the Nitro's a 3-2 lead heading into the second. The Rebels goalie was given a penalty, he took offence to Buckley and took him out (very Tim Thomas of him, not quite like Barrasso).
This was a let down period. There were obvious missed calls (again). Hits to the head, boarding, slashes and tripping, but the ref just let them play on. Not to mention after a period of 5 goals, 2 was lame, one for each team. There were correlations between the number of times the play by play guy said great moves and Rosolowksy.
HC Jerry Bancks is preaching fitness. What was noticeable last season is noticeable again this year, the Dynamiters can skate for all three periods. The Rebels had kept a lid on the Nitro's for the first and second, but the wheels came off, and the Dynamiters potted three goals in the third, despite only going 1 for 8 on the powerplay. The Nitro's held the Rebels to one shot during the period.
