My take on Game #1:

  • The Okotoks Oilers Power Play was Powerless Vs Olds last night going 1/8 or just 12.5% ... a surprising fact given the Oilers’ domination vs. Olds with Man Advantage during the Regular Season … Grizzlys willingness to sacrifice bodies by blocking shots (Moore was again sensational in that role) and Jemieff’s sensation play had a lot to do with the Black and Gold’s improvement on the P-K.

PK Regular Season Vs Okotoks = 58.6% (Allowing an Avg. of 2PPG against per Game)

PK Game #1 Playoffs Vs Okotoks = 87.5%

… The Grizzlys would be tempting fate by sitting in the ‘Sin Bin’ as much as they did last night tonight in Game 2.

  • Grizzlys Power Play wasn’t Great going 0-3 including a 5-Minute Major to work with. It was missing the jump that the Grizzlys showed during 5-on-5 Play.

 

  • Grizzlys Physicality lead to Okotoks Frustration … And here's why I suggest just that:

With Olds up 4-2 Tanner Ockey takes an undisciplined roughing minor with 4:16 left in the 2nd Period. Okotoks manages to kill off the Penalty dropping the Clock down to 2:16 left to play, then with 1:49 seconds remaining in the frame Ockey drills Landon Kletke from behind, resulting in an ejection, a 5-Minute Major, 15 Minutes in Penalties and a 2 Game Suspension. … Ockey wasn’t out of the box for more than 27 Seconds before committing another undisciplined, and in that case dangerous, penalty.  

Fine line between Physical Hits and Frustrated Hits … Ockey, and the Oilers, were Frustrated.

 … This is a lose/lose for both teams if Keltke misses significant time. Both Klekte, who was in the midst of his best Game as a Grizzly in my opinion, and Ockey scored for Okotoks last night and both players can make an impact when on the ice.

 

  • I mentioned in an interview earlier that if Olds were to have a chance Vs Okotoks in this series that the Grizzlys would need 2 things; A) A Physical yet Disciplined Approach & B) Scoring Dept. (as Dorowicz & Garrie would be heavily shadowed) … The Grizzlys managed 4-Even Strength Goals (a rarity in the regular season) and not one point from the Top Line of Dorowicz – Garrie – Mappin. (that almost never happened in the regular season and if it did it didn’t result in many wins

 

  • Jemieff was sensational in yet another Playoff Game in Okotoks making 35 Saves, some of his best coming in the 3rd period.

 

  • The Grizzlys managed to repeat last year’s success in Game #1 of the 1st Round Vs Okotoks but in terms of experience Deja-Vu, that’s where they’d like it stop …

A Year ago, again in the 2nd Vs 7th and again in Okotoks, the Grizzlys managed to steal game #1 by a One Goal Margin (2-1) despite going 0 for 3 on the Power Play and having to fend off some less than friendly officiating going for 5 for 6 on Penalty Kill. Jemieff was great in Game #1, making 39 Saves – D’Amico was not making 22 Saves.
