On this episode of Crusaders Pregame, hosts Zach Marks and Dawson Petryshen look back on the weekend struggles in Fort McMurray, and decide what the team needs to do to begin their rise against the Spruce Grove Saints.
Reminiscent of the home opener against the Saints, Sherwood Park went into the third period up 2-1 over the Oil Barons, thanks to goals from Jaron Desnoyers and Caelum Dick. Unfortunately, also like that first game, the Cru gave up four unanswered goals in the final 20 minutes to finish off 5-2. Saturday was a game to forget, dropping that one 7-1, and Gus Bylin was in net for all 7 goals after Marek Pocherewny made the start the night before.
Dawson had a chance to chat with assistant coach and assistant general manager Jeff Woywitka about how the team has performed in the first couple of months, and what the team needs to do to win more games. Also a guest on the show is Cale Ashcroft, making his return over the weekend, and talking about his road to recovery as well as his nomination to the NHL’s Central Scouting.
Tune in to HockeyTV for all of the action tonight in Spruce Grove, at 7:00 p.m.
