Great news for graduating members of the Swift Current Broncos over the weekend. Colby Cave, Carter Rigby and Brett Lernout all received opportunities to turn pro after the end of the Broncos’ season. I would expect the same will come for the signed Dillon Heatherington soon and one would imagine Coda Gordon is likely weighing pro vs. college options at this stage though I don’t know that for certain. All of those guys were/are terrific Broncos and hopefully they are able to follow this career as far as they want to take it.

Steve Mah of the Booster and I scrummed with the guys the day after the season ended late last week.

You can click here for my recap of game 3 and click here for video highlights on the Broncos website. Game 4 goes tonight in Swift Current with the season on the line. As Josh Dixon said it’s just one step at a time now. Every game has been winnable and the Pats have come through in the clutch. All the Broncos can do is win tonight and go from there. Hopefully Dillon Heatherington and Jake DeBrusk are good to go because those are enormous losses if they aren’t.

It’s almost another must-win situation for the Swift Current Broncos as they host the Regina Pats in game three of their first round WHL playoff series.

Regina leads the best of seven series 2-0 after 4-2 and 3-2 wins over the weekend.

“The first two games I think they outplayed us (and) they outworked us,” said Broncos defenceman Brett Lernout. “But I think all the guys we feel confident.”

“We weren’t laying the body, we weren’t playing physical and I think that has a big part in the game and has a big part in how we play.”

Game 1 Audio: Pats 4 Broncos 2

You can click here for my recap of game 1 over at Swift Current Online. I thought the Broncos played a very strong game. They outchanced and out-possessed the Pats while playing a structured defensive game. Unfortunately a couple of break downs at the end of the first period were all the opportunity Regina needed. That’s playoffs. There isn’t much room for error especially when Daniel Wapple has the kind of game that he had last night.

It’s just the first part of what should be a very good battle. No one expected this series to be a quick one. The old saying is you’re never in trouble in a series until you lose at home. Regina held serve in the first game. Now it’s on them to try to do that again. Our pre-game show is back live at 6:30pm on The Eagle 94.1 FM.
