Dragons Destroy Canucks
The Dragons headed to Calgary tonight to face off against the Calgary Canucks. The Dragons have not been to the Ken Bracko Arena since October. The last time in Calgary the Dragons fell 4-2. The last time these two teams faced each other in Drumheller, the Dragons won 5-3, It would be a close game tonight, or so we thought.
Drumheller opened up the scoring on their first shot of the game as Tyler Kreklewich scored his 12th of the year from Slater Dykema and Marcus Boguslavsky. On the second Dragon's shot, Bradley Stonnell scored his third of the season from Josh Laferierre and Clay Keeley. Drumheller had three power play opportunities but could not score on the man advantage.
The second period started with Drumheller on the power play and they capitalized. Alex Rotundo scored his 13th from Tyler Kreklewich and Bradley Stonnell 24 seconds in. The Dragons got a five on three man adavantage four minutes into the second and scored their fourth goal. Brett Edwards with his 20th from Slater Dykema and Troy Dudley. That would be the end of the night for Calgary goalie Erik Gordon as Kolby Matthews would get the call to go in. The Dragons continued to barrage the Canucks and scored with 4:50 left in the period. Jordan Taupert scored his 24th from Andrew Kartusch. Then 27 seconds later, Markus Boguslavsky scored his first goal since December 16th with assists going to Tyler Kreklewich and Josh Laferierre. Two minutes later was a carbon copy of the sixth goal as Boguslavsky scored from Kreklewich and Laferierre. Drumheller lead 7-0 after two.
Drumheller added to their lead in the third. At 7:08, Bradley Stonnell scored his second of the game from Troy Dudley. Hunter Virostek's shut out bid ended at 9:46 when Zach Webb scored to make it 8-1 Drumheller. The Dragons added a power play goal with just over two minutes left when Andrew Kartusch scored his 10th from Bradley Stonnell and Tyson Scott. Final score Drumheller 9 Calgary 1
