CU go 2-0 for the Week...

CU opened the week with a win over the SVRSS Tigers. With the return of "Trading Places", Kevin "Tomas" Kopecky got the nod in net, as Mike " 3 blocked Shots" Smitty found himself powering down the middle. Kopecky, no stranger to wearing the cage,spent more time outside the blue paint then in . Struggling to find his net all evening, Kopecky resorted to the throw back "Classic Crouch" , leaving 95% of the upper net wide open and a huge gaping 5- hole the size Texas, vulnerable to the Tiger snipers.

Smith relished the chance to once again showcase his offensive abilities, but playing along side veteran goal scorer Randy "Back on the Red Line" Mateika, he was forced to take on a more defensive role. Unofficially, Smith was tagged with 3 blocked shots, however Kopecky disputes the claim, "I was telling Smitty to get the F##k outta the way, I got the "Big Boy " pads on today.

# 87 Mike "Shot Blockin" Smith

Wednesday night saw yet another classic game with cross town rivals Swan River Raiders. The Raiders once again came out flying, out shooting CU 25 -7 in the first frame. Mike "The Wall" Smith, back in the pipes , was absolutely outstanding, allowing CU to hold on to  a 2-1 lead after 1. The CU back end trio of Warren "Wheels" Gray, Craig "Zdeno" Zamzow, and Darren "Mugsy" Mullin had their best game of the season. Holding the potent Raider shooters outside, and playing a  near flawless transition game, both Gray and Zamzow added some timely goal scoring. 
The TSN turning point of the game came mid way through the second, when in a span of 20 secs. Jeremy "Hands of Butter" Gray bulged the twine twice, putting the game out of reach. Playing together for the first time this season, the line of Gilroy, Knight and  Gray, aka the GKG line, really turned up the heat in the second. Gray finished the game with two, while Brian "The Real Deal" Gilroy added a single. 
Filling in for IR listed player Rob" McRibs" McDonald was "Battling " Brad Cox, on loan from the Mighty Bucks. "It was a real treat to finally have that #17 Jersey filled out, and catching a few passes for a change" 3 time All-Star Dman Craig " Zdeno" Zamzow commented post game. CU has  the Mighty Bucks in their cross hairs when they meet  Sunday night at the Corral.
