Anybody know if Shaw is still showing this game? It's listed on the Shaw CHL schedule but upon viewing the TV guide today, it's not listed. :confused:

Well that was the tale of two halves. It looked the Rockets would run away and hide up 2-0 but Vancouver came back and tied it.

Speaking of running away and hiding, Prince George is all over Kootenay like a cheap suit - 4-0 after 1. Dakers is starting for the Ice but after allowing 4 goals on 7 shots you have to wonder how long his night will be.

Rockets starting to drop the hammer. 4-2, shots 34 (thirty four) to 12 (twelve) about half way through the second.

Kootenay still losing! 4-1 now.
