"Old Time Hockey" as SVCU win 8-6 over the Swan River Raiders...
Running a short bench, seven skaters to be exact, SVCU played a gritty, hard fought battle, which proved to be the difference in a 8-6 win over cross town rivals Swan River Raiders. A tight game that saw the score see-saw back and forth until mid way through the final period, when veteran official Jimmy " What did I Miss" Webster made a few questionable calls putting the Raiders on the PP.

Finesse Raider forward Chris "Catch me if you can" Hunt, wasted no time in putting the Raiders up by 2. With few warm bodies on the bench, stalwart CU blue liners Warren "Wheels' Gray and Craig "Zdeno" Zamzow were forced to play up front. Down 6-4, Gray showed why he is considered one of the league's premiere skater, puck handler , and shooter, by going end to end and freezing the Raider goaltender not once , but twice short side . Zamzow, scoring his third of the evening, put CU ahead for the first time. Adding the insurance late in the game, Gray also finished the evening with three. Fighting a head cold, behemoth blue liner Blaine " Soup" Campbell logged an entire 60 minute shift, showing once again the strength and stamina of a 20 year old. ( his wife may think differently)
