On this episode of Crusaders Pregame, hosts Zach Marks and Dawson Petryshen review the first set of February against the Drayton Valley Thunder, look at the North division playoff picture, and preview the next set against the Bonnyville Pontiacs.
Reeling from a 5-2 loss to Grande Prairie, the Cru were hoping to jump on a road-weary Thunder. Game one of the set started off in Sherwood Park’s favor, seeing goals from Mitchell Joss and Michael Lovsin, but two powerplay markers from Hunter Price tied It up and Drayton Valley took the extra point in the shootout. The following night, the Crusaders rebounded and Gus Bylin made 34 saves to ensure a 2-1 win at home.
Dawson had a chance to speak with Bylin and defenceman Cade Christenson ahead of this weekend’s matchups, about additions Lochlan Gordon and Juliano Santalucia and what the team needs to do to continue their momentum.
