First things first: When Ryan Rehill fought Austin Carroll last night vs. Victoria, I saw something happen that I've never seen before. Rehill landed a haymaker that shattered Carroll's visor! It truly was something.



Now: Tonight's game was a true character game! Three games in three nights, three wins, WOW. Unreal that they travelled all through the night after playing two games before that and were able to grind one out.

Think before you act, act before it's too late.

Did we implode yet?

Always been a Blazers fan, but just moved to Kamloops a year and a half ago so follow them a lot closer than I used to.

Better do it. It's only going to get bigger.

And yeah, parking is unbelievable. Last year I liked to park up on Battle St. and walk down, can barely do that anymore. Usually I just carpool now. Not that I'm complaining, no parking = fuller building :)

It's a very exciting time to be a Blazer fan! I can't wait for Portland to make the trip down to the Tournament Capital. It's almost a guarantee that the building will sell out that night, and I know the game will be full of energy! Portland looks good again this season.

You have trouble finding parking for the games? I park in Riverside Park over by the Japanese gardens and the tennis courts and have never had trouble parking. Plus it's a nice walk through the park before and after the game :)

Hey! That's where I park sometimes too :)


I really like the way they've constructed the front of the ISC. Looks great. The area is going to be beautiful once that new hotel is done!

Yea, if i drive that is where I park, but most of the time when I went i would just bus it. was easy, usually get downtown a bit early, have a couple brews at BP then head down to the game.

Whooooo!

Dan Russell on SportsTalk was talking about how this streak doesn't match up with all the Blazer streaks because of the one shootout loss...what he fails to realize is that this was a 14 game win streak after that loss...what an idiot.

I used to like him, too...

Well he was referring to our shoot out wins. Back in the day there were no shootouts, it went to overtime and then if there was no winner it was a tie. So what he is saying is that our shoot out wins would have resulted in ties thus ending our streak. IMO you can't compare any stats from the older era's of hockey, to the new era. Stats are just calculated too differently, especially the standings.

It was kinda shady that he was taking something away from this streak tho, very unfortunate. I too usually like Dan, just not last night.

Seriously? They're winning this much and there's still tickets available?

I lived in Kamloops for one winter a few years back (when the Blazers had Iginla, Doan, Tucker, Domenichelli, and Baumgartner on the roster) and it was nearly impossible to get tickets. I could only ever get standing room tickets. Those were good times!


I lived there back then too, the glory days with 3 memorial cups in 4 years, including one hosted in kamloops. It was standing room only for every game.

coliseum was built in 92, so the 95 memorial cup was there

I think that the new arena was a requirement for hosting (just guessing though)

edit: I remember going to one of the games that year, must have been round robin. Can't remember who they played. they won though ahahha
