Cronin provides the heroics as Swan Valley wins wild one over Virden

It was on pace to be a race to 10 goals, but we didn't get that far but close enough as the Swan Valley Stampeders got their 2nd win of the MJHL season with a 7-6 overtime win over the Virden Oil Capitals on Tuesday night from the Centennial Arena in Swan River.

In the first period, it looked like it would be a blowout in favour of the Stamps as they got 3 goals in a span of 8:03 as Riley Welsh (1st MJHL goal), Tristin Mullin (3rd of the season) & Braydon McDonald (3rd of the season) all chipped in with the goals as the Stamps took a commanding 3-0 lead into the 1st intermission. Shots were 17-15 in favour of SV.

But in the 2nd, it was a different as the visiting Oil Caps came out flying in the middle frame outshooting the Stamps in the period and also outscoring them in the frame as they would get goals off the sticks of 19 year old Devin Schram and 18 year old Jake Dudar to cut the Swan lead to only one at 3-2 heading into the 2nd break.

The floodgates for goals would open for both sides in the 3rd period with 8 total goals scored in the period, 4 from the Oil Caps (Taylor Fisher, Tanner Lewis, Ben Williams and Devin Schramm) and 3 Stamps goals including the tying goal from Tristin Mullin, his 2nd of the night with just 2:18 remaining to force the extra period.

In the overtime period, it would be back and forth until Holden Cronin grabbed the puck from his own end and made his way into the attacking zone, went around the Oil Caps net and snuck it five-hole through Cam Pateman's legs for his 1st MJHL goal to give the Stamps the extra point and a 7-6 overtime victory.

Graham Hunt got his 2nd win of the season for SV stopping 36 of 42 shots while Kyler Beckett started for Virden and let in 3 goals on 13 shots before being he was relieved by Cam Pateman who had 24 saves in relief.

The Stamps next action will be a couple games this weekend at the MJHL Showcase in Winnipeg starting Friday afternoon when they take on the undefeated Portage Terriers (4PM MB time) before taking on the Dauphin Kings at 7:00 MB time on Saturday evening.

Mils Win 3rd Straight with win over Humboldt.

The Melville Millionaires won their 3rd straight to start the 2014-15 SJHL season as they defeated the Humboldt Broncos 2-1 on Tuesday night.

The first period was not the start the Mils would've wanted as the Broncos controlled much of the early part of the opening frame leading in the shot column 6-0 but goaltender Josh Bykowski was very solid early in his 1st SJHL start as he kept his team in it with a couple of timely saves. The Mils were able to break through on the power play on their first shot of the game, Lane Harbor snapped home his 2nd goal of the season to give the Mils a 1-0 lead after 20 minutes.

In the 2nd, the Broncos despite being behind came out hard in the middle frame and they would be rewarded for their efforts as Michael Korol would deflect home a power play goal past goalie Josh Bykowski for his 1st SJHL goal to tie things up at 1-1 through 2 periods.

It would be a period of up n downs for the Mils as they would start off slow once again in the 3rd, then would pick up the place later on and that's when Reed Murray would go top shelf on Brandon Holtby for the game winner to give the Mils a 2-1 road win.

19 year old Josh Bykowski (pictured above) stopped 37 shots for the win in his 1st SJHL start for the Mils while Brandon Holtby made 24 saves in a losing cause.

The Mils go right back at it on Wednesday night when they host the Battlefords North Stars at 7:30 from the HCUC.

Thomas nets the winner as Dauphin beats Swan Valley in Overtime on Opening Night

The Swan Valley Stampeders were able to get a point on opening night, but they would lose the game falling 5-4 in overtime to the Dauphin Kings.

The Stamps got off to a slow start to their opening period of the season, as the Dauphin Kings kind of took it to the Stamps playing most of the period in the Stamps zone, and the Kings would get rewarded for their hard work by netting the first goal as Drake Bodie would slip home a nice feed from Tyler Garrioch past Stamps' goalie Graham Hunt for his 1st goal as a King to give Dauphin a 1-0 after 20 minutes of play.

In the 2nd is where much of the offence came, it would start just 2 minutes in as Stamps would even things up as Brayden McDonald would get the Stamps on the board to make it a 1-1 game. But just 2 minutes later, Riley Thiessen's point shot would get past goalie Graham Hunt to regain the Kings 1 goal lead at 2-1. The Stamps would then explode for the next 3 goals off the sticks of BJ Avery, Tristin Mullin and McDonald with his 2nd to give the visiting Swan Valley 4-2 lead after 2 periods.

The Kings though would not go away as 9:42 into the 3rd they would cut the Stamps lead to 1 as Drake Bodie would get his 2nd of the night to make it a 4-3 game. Then with just 2:38 to go, Matt Kenny would rip one bar down on Hunt on the powerplay for his 1st to make it a 4-4 game after regulation.

In the extra period, the Kings would once again get a powerplay and once again they would make no mistake as Chance Thomas would finish off his 3 point night with a wicked wrister to send the home town fans home happy with a 5-4 Dauphin win.

Riley Corbin wasn't the busy of the goalies but did make 20 saves for his 1st MJHL win, while Graham Hunt was very solid for Swan Valley stopping 35 shots in the loss.

The Stamps next game will be their home opener on Tuesday night when they host the OCN Blizzard at 7:30 MB time from Centennial Arena. (Also Don't forget its Farm Credit Canada Food Drive, so don't forget if your heading to the game to bring a non-perishable food item for the food bank)

Keuhn shines as Mils win home opener over Estevan

If Mils Head Coach & GM Jamie Fiesel wanted to start off 2014/15 SJHL season the right way, he got his wish on Thursday night as Melville (1-0-0-0) defeated the Estevan Bruins (0-1-0-0) 3-1 on SJHL opening night at the Horizon Credit Union Center.

Fiesel said on the post game show "They key for us is that we only let in one goal, , our penalty kill was good and to be honest were are a different team than other years we lean on you and try to wear you down then try to find ways to score"

The first period was a back and forth opening frame with both teams having some glorious chances especially on the teams respective powerplays, but both goalies in Sean Keuhn & Brett Lewchuk stood tall in between the pipes making it a scoreless hockey game after 1 period of play.

In the 2nd period, the Mils would come out a firing and would get rewarded for their efforts as just 2:09 into the middle frame, Kirk Bear's lazer wrist shot from the point would find its way into the back of the net to give the Mils a 1-0 lead. But just 1:35 later, in similar fashion, Bruins captain Nolan Nicholas would let go a point shot of his own that would beat the Mils netminder Keuhn for his 1st of the season to knot it back up at 1 apiece. The Mils would get into a little bit of penalty trouble as Mils Captain Allen Kilback would get kicked out for checking from behind, then dman Cole Berreth would follow to the box to set up a lengthy 5 on 3 PP for Estevan but they weren't able to convert because of 2 outstanding defensive plays by defenseman Ben Mack. On that ensuing PK, the Mils would get the eventual game winner as Landon Farrell would finish off a nice passing play with Reed Murray to give the hometown Mils a 2-1 lead. Then late in the 3rd, Brennen Miller would deflect home his 1st SJHL goal to give the Mils a little insurance.

The third period would solve nothing and the Mils would cruise to a a 3-1 opening night victory.

19 year old Flower Mound, Texas native Sean Keuhn (pictured above)  had 31 saves to get his 1st SJHL victory while Brett Lewchuk had 22 saves in a losing cause.

These teams will go right back at it on Friday night this time in Estevan.
