Men's Hockey: Suggestions for games to watch this weekend

I'm not sure if it is because of the CIS football playoffs this weekend, or maybe because the court sports are in full swing, but there's a paucity of hockey webcasts in the OUA and Canada West this weekend. Here's some suggestions for games to watch on your computer, since there's no NHL on TV.


AUS: A couple of nationally ranked teams get at 'er as #6 Moncton visits #10 Saint Mary's in Halifax.
The game was close thanks to Moncton goaltender Adrien Lemay's 49 saves. In overtime UdeM's Mathieu Bolduc scored the winner, shorthanded, for 3-2 road win.

OUA: The reigning national champ McGill Redmen are in in Trois-Rivières to play #5 ranked UQTR.
Les Patriotes cruised to a 3-1 win.

CanadaWest: No games online, but Saskatchewan at Calgary looks interesting.
The Huskies were missing 2/3 of their top line, and the rest of the team must have had bus legs as the Dinos pumped them 8-0.


AUS: Battle for first place between #2 ranked Acadia and #4 ranked UNB in Fredericton. THE game of the week in CIS men's hockey.
This game delivered in very much a playoff feel on the ice. Acadia tied it up in the third, but Tyler Carroll scored the game winner and insurance goal for 4-2 win for the Varsity Reds.

OUA: Only game online has RMC at Toronto, while Lakehead at Laurier is probably a better tilt.
The Varsity Blues had an easy time with the Paladins, outshooting them 49-25 in 7-0 win. The Lancers upset the No. 8 ranked Thunderwolves 4-2 despite being outshot 44-28.

CanadaWest: Still no games online, and Manitoba at UBC would have made for fun late night viewing.
Turns out the Lethbridge at Mount Royal game was webcast, but there was no play-by-play audio. Jesse Tresierra scored in double-overtime to win it 3-2 for the Cougars. The Bison and the Thunderbirds also went to 2OT, with Scott Wasden getting the 2-1 winner for UBC.

  1. Instead of looking at the higher standings in the OUA East, look lower. RMC and Ryerson play tonight for the 8th spot for playoff position, pretty much making or breaking each team heading into the christmas break. Big log jam, every game is important
