Well that had to be the most exciting 1-1 tie going into overtime that I have seen. What an ovation for the BC Division Champion Prince George Cougars!

Such a great night of Cougars hockey. Can’t wait for the playoffs next weekend. GO CATS GO!!!!!!!!

It was a great game, even considering the overtime shootout loss!

Heck, we even got to witness both a pathetic “embellishment” call against us and then very shortly thereafter the complete ignoring of what should have been a tripping penalty against the Loops!

But in the big picture, it doesn’t matter as the boys did what they needed to do and the rest is history!

On to the playoffs! GO CATS GO!

I have to admit. This was the first game I went to since the new owners. Last time I went to a game I sat in section A and I swear I could hear someone cough in section P. The crowd was right into the game last night. Even had good entertainment during the intermissions. Before I could bring a book to read between periods. Thank you to the Cougars for an entertaining night out and good luck in the playoffs.I hope to catch more games in the future
