Whitecourt @ Dawson Creek and The Huskies
Jon Zacks and I hit the road last night and went to check out the Wolverines game against the Junior Canucks in DC. Good game. The Creek jumped out to a 3 goal lead midway through the second period but then Rodney Lavoie, probably the best player in this league, decided to turn it on. 25 seconds after DC made it 3 zip Lavoie snapped a wrister up under the bar to get his team rolling. It was 3 - 3 after two thanks to Wayne Quaife and Jeff Chalifoux. Whitecourt never looked back and despite some pretty solid goaltending from DC's Cody Garnett, Rod Lavoie was able to blast home the winning goal on a PP in the third. 5 to 3 was the final. Probably one of the better NWJHL games I have seen this season and definitely the fastest. DC and Whitecourt have to be the two fastest teams in the league. Whitecourt has and incredible amount of offensive depth. It really is impressive. Dawson Creek now has 9 losses on the season helping to cement the Huskies hold on second place. The Huskies have this weekend off as the NWJHL All Star game is Saturday in Whitecourt. The Huskies next regular season action is next Saturday at home against Peace River.
