The Maxwell Devonshire Realty Pregame: Crusaders vs Bobcats

Sherwood Park, AB: The Sherwood Park Crusaders head home for the Family Day game against the Lloydminster Bobcats. The Crusaders go into the game seeking revenge, having lost 5-2 to the Bobcats in last week?s reverse fixture.

The Crusaders responded to that defeat with a 5-4 shootout win against the Fort McMurray Oil Barons. The victory guarantees a first-round bye in the playoffs and has secured the number one seed in the North Division.

The two teams last played in the Park back in November. The Cru left the ice 4-0 winners thanks to goals from Michael Benning (University of Denver), Jarred White (University of Alabama-Huntsville), Blake Sydlowski and Brett Wieschorster.

Monday?s game could be memorable for forward Carter Savoie (University of Denver), who needs one more goal to hit 50 for the season. He also needs eight more points to reach a total of 100. Captain Arjun Atwal had a three-point night in Fort McMurray, and this means that he is now two points shy of the century mark.

Fans who are heading to Sherwood Park Arena can hit the ice for a post-game skate. Puck-drop is at 2:15 P.M.
