I’ll admit it, I had doubts. If you read my last blog, you’ll know that I wondered if the latest big round of trades would work. Tonight, they did masterfully.
The Bulls not only kept up with the Idaho Steelheads, but beat them in a Shootout 4-3.
Three big factors contributed to this.
First, not enough can be said about Taylor Nelson’s goalkeeping. He was great tonight, one of his best efforts.
Second, the new players Bryan Cameron and Tristan King scored and helped a lot with the offensive effort. It made a huge difference.
But the third contribution and probably one that won’t be discussed, was the lack of penalties. Jordan Clendenning did get one tripping call, but fortunately, this didn’t lead to any scoring by Idaho.
Tonight we saw how great the team can be if they work together with the immense talent they have without all those nasty penalties that plagued them Friday night. Keep it up!
The next game is in Utah against the Grizzlies this Tuesday, February 26th.
