Cougars Fall

The Cougars have had a decent number of winning streaks in the regular season over the years. From December 10th, 2011 to September 20th, 2012 the Cougars won 22 straight regular season games. From January 10th, 2013 to October 10th, 2013 the Cougars won 22 games straight again. October 25th, 2015 to January 21, 2016 the Cougars won 23 straight. Heading into the first of 3 games in 3 nights the Cougars had won 19 straight regular season games.

For better or worse, probably worse, the Cougars were not challenged in their last contest. Handily stomping the Predators on Sunday. Westshore did not play like Saanich. It took just seconds for the Wolves to take a lead in the game. After a bad give-away just inside the Cougars zone Noah Hovde went in alone and made the game 1-0, 33 seconds into the game. The Wolves would lead the rest of the game.

34 seconds into the 2nd period the Wolves did it again making it 2-0. After Trey Anderson took a penalty that I would call undisciplined at best, Jackson Estey was able to score his second shorty of the year. Probably the only plus that came out of this game is that the Cougars now have more short-handed goals for than powerplay goals against. Not a stat you see often.

Barrie and Jorginson would trade goals in the back half of the 2nd. After a few chances in the 3rd period the Cougars pulled the goalie to try and tie it up. Leik would pot an EN goal late to drive the stake home.

The Cougars now play the Islanders at home tonight at 7.
