SVCU "Shit the Bed " with 8 mins to Go....

Not since the famed Kings-Oilers 1982 comeback dubbed "The Miracle on Manchester" has a team shown a total disregard for a more than worthy adversary.
A melt down of epic proportions led to a demoralizing 6-5 loss at the hands of the Bowsman Silver Seven. Leading 5-2 with less than 8 minutes remaining, SVCU pulled off a finish that would even have left Leaf fans shaking their heads. A fast paced , tight checking game, had the score tied at 2 after the first period. SVCU took the the lead early in the second on a sweet Deke, by Jeff "Nifty " Knight, and seconds later went ahead by 2 on Knight's second of the evening. SVCU back stopper, Mike "Smitty" Smith made what at the time should have been the TSN Turning Point of the game. Silver Seven Flashy Forward Leon Mykula broke in all alone only to be robbed by Smith's lightning-quick right hand. On the ensuing odd man rush, Rob "Close your eyes and Shoot" McDonald threaded the needle with a seeing eye dog that froze Silver Seven Net minder Derek Poole. Sitting back on a three goal lead was not part of the game plan. Silver Seven answered with 2 quick goals, and sensing a sinking ship, attacked the SVCU goal relentlessly. Despite a more than heroic effort on the part of Smith, when the smoke had cleared, SVCU found themselves reeling on the hind end of a 6-5 loss. Rounding out the scoring for SVCU , Pat "Pumper" Morden and Jeremy "Go Daddy " Gray with singles.
SVCU bulking blue liner Craig "Wings " Zamzow will be absent from line up for the next 2 weeks as he is going on an "Olympic Break" Hiatus. Director of player personnel and former SVCU all star and league penalty minute leader David "Dr. Hook" Bettesworth voiced his concern over the D man's decision. " Craig has logged a lot of ice time in the past month and was working his way down to being only 75 lbs. from his ideal playing weight. We have been in contact with Canada Place Athlete Training Facility and have secured him some time with Olympic Men's Hockey Fitness Guru Steve Van Shubert. The bottom line is that he has to take some responsibility and show some discipline and commitment so he can be ready for the cup run. By no means is he to come within 50 meters of the famed "Vancouver West Side Wing Shack." Neither Zamzow or his agent could not be reached for comment.
