Titan dominating. If not for Paddock this could be a blow out already.
Paddock has been incredible.
Holy **** Paddock with another big save.
There's no way this should be a 1-0 nothing game.
The Titan are like the junior hockey version of the Golden Knights. Constantly attacking offensively and defensively, no room for Regina to move anywhere on the ice.
As others have mentioned, Paddock is the reason this game is close on the scoreboard.
Shots 29-8 now after the Pats finally get a few on net in the past couple minutes.
Refs left their whistles at the hotel-lol.
They're going to let them sort this out 5 on 5, which is good to see. These refs are better at their jobs than the NHL refs are.
Okay...I'm convinced on Dobson. Too bad there's a snowball's chance in hell he's not taken before 10.
Damn, Pats hit the post on a 2 on 1, then Steel hit it again a few moments later.
The 3rd will be fun to watch.
**** off the post of the 2 on 1 for then Pats. The
Yeah Dobson will be gone by 10 no doubt about that.
My guess is either Ottawa or Detroit takes him.
Yeah he's definitely going early. If any D will be available I think it'll be Boqvist.
Pats coming on but can't solve the Titan goalie (yet).
Pats pressing. Hopefully they get a goal here soon.
Hebig puts the puck over the glass in the D zone. Pats need to kill this.
into his own net
Well ****, that's probably the game...just after Hebig was robbed.
Monster hit by Fleury
the 'Dub drought continues
one Memorial Cup in 10 years (thankfully the Oil Kings)
Didn't want to see a team from the Q win it, but hats off to the Titan, they earned this national championship. Off to see if Celtics can salvage the evening by taking out Lebron.
The Titan were the deserving Champs.
The WHL needs to step it up, I remember when the WHL used to dominate Memorial Cups.
I'm glad the Titan won, I think it's a joke having the host team in the tournament. Only the best team in each league should be able to win the Memorial Cup imo.
I partly agree with the host team sentiments...could you imagine if a team that failed to make the playoffs in their respective league won the Memorial Cup because they were granted a berth as the host team? Maybe it has happened in the past as I don't know, but that would just be so ass-backwards . Instead of the host city getting an automatic berth, maybe bring back the previous year's champion to defend the title? I'd imagine ticket sales would drop if the host city wasn't involved but it is a different way of a tournament format by giving the host city an auto-berth.
While I agree in principle, name a better way to do a three team playoff.
Also without the host team in it, only a couple cities would ever host it because you wouldn't be able to get the arenas full.
I like this idea a lot better. And honestly they could just have the host city be the team that won it last year as well. So for this year it would have been London.
