KAM Chase Suoto (13) - C. Ully, K. Kornelsen (1:42)

Second Period:

KAM Dylan Willick (13) - T. Hansen (0:29)

KAM Cole Cheveldave 0 GA, 24 SVS

Three Stars of the Game:

1. KAM 19 Brendan Ranford

2. KAM 9 Colin Smith

3. KAM 3 Sam Girst

This game started off with a bang, as Flyers prospect Brendan Ranford scored just 10 seconds in, and Chase Suoto scored a minute later. Even though it wasn't the results the Giants fans wanted, it would've been a helluva game to go to. Orban and Houck each had 12 PIMS, and captain Wes had 15. On the Kamloops side, Joel Edmunson had 15 PIMS and projected 2013 first round pick JC Lipon had 31. At the 13:37 mark of the second period, Vannieuwenhuizen got 5 for boarding and a game, Lipon got 5 for fighting and 2 for the instigator, and Orban got the fighting major. And at the 18:37 mark of the third, Lipon got 2 for kneeing, 2 for roughing, and a 10. Houck got 2 for roughing and a 10, Edmundson got 10 and Orban and Willick each got fighting majors. There were two other fights in the game, Geertsen vs Edmundson and Atwal vs Macklin. Somehow, no Kamloops player ended up getting more than 2 points and no Giant was worse than -3

The Giants get back on the right track with a win against a bubble team in the Seattle Thunderbirds. After a fun, fight-filled game against Kamloops, the boys toned it down tonight and got the two points. There were a couple roughing scrums, Blake Orban found himself in the middle of most of those. Cain Franson and Brendan Rouse each had 1G 1A for 2 points, as Franson hopes to top the 30-goal mark this season.

Three Stars of the Game:

1. VAN 33 Jared Rathjen

2. KAM 12 Chase Suoto

3. VAN 21 Brendan Rouse

The Giants finally had their luck turned around against the red-hot Kamloops Blazers. Kale Kessy's luck against however, continues to go against his former team. I have no official stat but I'd bet that he's gotten at least a point in every contest against the Giants since he was traded. Arvin Atwal got into it with Chase Suoto and got 15 PIMS. The Giants had a couple of multi-point nights, Brendan Rouse (2G), Cain Franson (1G 1A), and Carter Popoff (2A). As he nears 30 goals, one wonders if Franson gets another call to prospects camp and maybe a contract this time around. I remember reading an article by Drance before the season started, hoping that Franson could do what Jordan Martinook did last season by hovering up and down for a few years then going out and getting a 40-goal season and was drafted in the second round. Franson won't get 40 goals, but he also didn't have Brendan Gallagher on his wing. 30 should be a good goal for the last 8 games of the season. Either way, I wish all the best to Cain, would be nice to get both Franson brothers ;).

Game was in Kamloops

I was at the game in Vancouver last Friday, and I was really expecting this game to be pretty chippy, but it wasn't near as bad as I thought it might be.

In other news, Minnesota wonderboy high schooler Alec Baer will make his Giants debut tonight, on Gordie Howe night. There are a number of former NHL stars in the vicinity, including Marcel Dionne and Brett Hull. The Giants are expecting close to 10 000 people tonight!

Gordie Howe night at the Pacific Coliseum was a good one, with the Giants getting their third straight win! After Michael Bublé sang happy birthday to the man of the night, things went going right away. Arvin Atwal had another fight, his second in as many games. A couple Giants had multi-point games, Carter Popoff (2G 1A), Arvin Atwal (2A), Taylor Vickerman (1G 1A), and Dalton Sward (1G 1A). Russell Maxwell of Lethbridge also had 2G 1A. A couple Giants have gone on big point streaks during this streak, with Popoff getting 6 points (4G 2A) in 3 games, Travis McEvoy (3, 2G 1A), Cain Franson (5, 2G 3A), Brandon Rouse (4, 3G 1A). Rookie Alec Baer played in his first WHL game, getting no points and going -2. Only thing that's not going right now is that I would like to be Houck get more points, especially if he wants to get drafted this summer. In honor of Gordie Howe night, Marcel Dionne, Bobby and Dennis Hull, Orland Kurtenbach, Jim Robson and Jonny Bower were also in attendance.

As the Giants 3-game winning streak comes to an end, so do their mathematical chances at the playoffs. Rookie Alec Baer got his first WHL point in his second game, and assist on Cain Franson's goal. Kale Kessy again scores against us. Flyers prospects Brendan Ranford now holds the franchise record for most games played at 342 as a Blazer. This wasn't as chippy a Blazers-Giants game you'd expect, just a few roughing minors.

Overtime:

VAN Blake Orban (4) - B. Kulak, B. Rouse (1:47)

3. VAN 13 Alec Baer

Vancouver absolutely dominated today's game, and the shots will already tell you that. Everett had only 2 shots in the second period. Blake Orban played the hero in overtime with a clean slap shot past 2013 draft-eligible goalie Austin Lotz. Payton Lee wasn't super busy in net with only 13 shots against, but made some big saves when he needed to including a five-hole breakaway stop on Manraj Hayer

When will this turrible season end.

Sadly, there isn't even anyone looking all that good on the horizon.

As much as this rebuilding season has been a tough one. The Future is bright. Giants fans have seen 15 year old forwards Alec Baer and Jakob Stukel. Both players have shown offensive upside. Payton Lee has played well considering he is the only 16 year old starting goalie in the WHL.

There are rumblings that Marek Tverdon could return next year and play as an overager.

And don't forget the 8 picks in the first 3 rounds this year, and will probably be the first overall pick.

I am not forgetting about the draft picks. But next season NONE of those players will be on the roster. I would not be surprised if the Giants were in the mix for home ice in round one next season.

3. VIC 10 Ben Walker

The Giant lose the first in a home-and-home worth the Victoria Royals in, judging by the boxscore, looked like a feisty matchup, with Blake Orban leading the way with 12 PIMS. Rookie Alec Baer scored his first WHL goal in hos fifth game! Again, I have no highlights and I didn't see the game, but judging by the scoring of a line of Baer-Franson-Kieser was flying out there tonight. Tyler Morrison also had two points, and Franson had 3. The Giants and Royals play again tonight at the Coliseum, then only a few more games left before the end of the season. One more loss and the G-men are guaranteed last place in the league.

Shots: 40-20 VAN

Goal Scoring:

First Period:

VAN Carter Popoff (14) - B. Kulak (3:53)

Second Period:

Three Stars of the Game:

1. VAN 1 Payton Lee

2. VAN 27 Jackson Houck

3. VAN 2 Brett Kulak

The Giants ended this home-and-home much better than they started it. They controlled the game almost fully, apart from the one powerplay goal 34 seconds in, doubling the Royals shot total. That would be the only powerplay in the game for both sides, just fights (Cooke) and offsetting minors (Vannieuwenhuizen). Jackson Houck scored a pair of goals including the game winner and the empty net goal. On Houck's initial shot, the goalie Vollrath made a great diving stick save but then the puck trickled across the line. Brett Kulak also had two assists. Payton Lee made 19 saves and allowed only the one goal. Also, with a Cougars win tonight the Giants are mathematically stuck in last place.
