Well game 1 was fun to be at. Got a little out of hand in the last 10 minutes of the 3rd but I like it. Itll add some fire to the series and make it more fun.

Going to game 2 tonight as well. Hope it picks up right where game 1 left off.


I heard on facebook that some kamloops fans got spit on

Looking like last years playoffs, hopefully we can push it to 7 again.

It all started with that penalty shot?

Say what? As a Portland fan i'll apologize if thats true. There are a lot of redneckish people at the Winterhawks games so i'll blame them if that is the case. I was a huge Kamloops fan growing up before moving to Oregon so this series is hard for me lol...

Got advance tickets for game 5 from a contest on the Winterhawks FB page. Im assuming there will be one, no way Portland will sweep, still think it will go to 6 or 7.

Ironic how Smith and Bozon return and all of a sudden the offence dries up...hopefully it's just a mini two game slump and the secondary scoring (as well as top two lines) come back in full force at the ISC! Would LOVE to see Carruth yanked.

I was just going to say that. I just have this funny feeling that we will win both games at home, don't know why.

I really hope that's not true. I always see fans from other teams and as far as ive ever seen, none have had a rough go.

It only takes one drunk idiot to ruin a party though. personally sorry if its true.

Alright boys, tonight is the night. We CANNOT gp down 3 games to noe, this is essentially a game 7. I belive that without that portland crowd it'll be a two completely different teams. We need to come out fast and score right away, get our crowd into it, and then score again.

Big big win, even with some penalty trouble early. I felt we were lucky to be out of the first period tied, what happened in the second floored me, four more unanswered goals? Lots of fun to be there, some nice goals and big hits!

Hopefully tomorrow night is actually sold out.

That they did! We need to keep this momentum! If we keep working hard on our forecheck The hawks will get frustrated because this series is not going the way they thought it would. That is exactly what we want!

Chevy is a big-ol-pain in the rear! haha. We had so many great opportunities and Chevy was like "Not in my house sukkahs!"
If you guys keep capitalizing on your chances, and we cant get anything on ours, were gonna be in trouble.

Is he an over-ager or do you guys get to keep him next year?

He's turning 20 this summer, I'm hoping we get to keep him on board next year! We'll see what happens after the NHL draft though.

Tonight's game is even bigger than last night - we lose tonightt, and we're on the brink headed back to Oregon. Basically a death sentence. I'm expecting a LOUD crowd, a fired up team, and a Blazer WIN tonight!!!! Tie the series, and ultimately win it 6!!!

Got tickets and am excited to go!

The game will be at the rose garden, so the feed should be good for those of you that might be interested in the steam.
Just stay close to your volume control, as our guys cant seem to figure out how set volume levels between the games and commercials.

If we score a goal, the commentators are bound to scare your cat/wife/children half to death.

Good series guys. Was a lot of fun to watch and be at here in Oregon. Who was that dude in the games at ISC that was running around getting the crowd pumped up? Wish all the best to the team and the fans. Hope the Hawks will see them again in the playoffs (assuming both teams get there) next year.

BLAZERS AGREE TO EXTENSION WITH VP / GM CRAIG BONNER
Kamloops, BC – The Kamloops Blazers ownership group consisting of Tom Gaglardi, Shane Doan, Jarome Iginla, Mark Recchi and Darryl Sydor is pleased to announce that a multi-year contract extension has been agreed upon with Vice-President and General Manager Craig Bonner.
“Craig has done a tremendous job improving the Kamloops Blazers over the past five seasons,” commented President / Governor Tom Gaglardi. “Craig has built a solid foundation and has positioned us for continued success moving forward. He has provided the stability, leadership and foresight necessary to create a program that will continue to allow the Blazers to be competitive year after year.”
Bonner joined the Blazers as the team’s Vice-President and General Manager on April 25, 2008. Under Bonner’s leadership, the list of accomplishments include: B.C. Division Championship in 2011-12, back-to-back 47-win seasons, 16 playoff victories over the past two seasons, advancing to the Western Conference Championship series this past spring before falling to the WHL Champion Portland Winterhawks.
This will be Bonner’s 16th season with the Kamloops Blazers during three different roles as a player from 1989-93, Assistant Coach 1996-02 and General Manager 2008 - Present. Bonner won two WHL Championships as a player with the Blazers in 1990 and 1992. He also won a Memorial Cup with the Blazers in 1992.
As an Assistant General Manager and Assistant Coach with the Vancouver Giants from 2002-08, Bonner won a WHL Championship in 2006 and a Memorial Cup in 2007.

Also, how about Quinn Benjafield? 132 points in 70 games in Bantam, better numbers than any of the current roster players, aside from Colin Smith.

So Guy Charron steps down as coach and Dave Hunchak takes over. Now the Blazers are actively pursuing a fresh face for the assistant coach position. Wonder who that'll be?

Also, Colin "Toledo" Robinson gets a multi-year extension. Best trainer in the biz.
