    There are more than the usual number of links from both teams in this series. Lots of them were from last week but we are still early in the season so preview stuff is fairly fresh.

    The Evil Monkeys are the fastest out of the gate this year, so maybe its not a great time to be facing them. On the other hand, the Bisons went 1-3-0 against them last year after going 3-1-0 the one before that. So if the Bisons get some points in Edmontown they could set themselves up for the balance of the season.

    Both games are on CanadaWest.tv, as are all CW games this year, but there is no radio. The CW live updates are not what they once were when LeagueStat and Hockey Tech were involved. Maybe it will be better this week.


    CALGARY DINOS (1-0-1, 7-1-2, OHT35 #5)
    U.B.C. THUNDERBIRDS (1-1-0, 4-2-0, OHT35 #13)

    The T-irds will host the Bedrock Dinos at their old barn (the Father David Bauer Arena) but will play the balance of their season at the new Mitchell Arena. Both teams split last weekend so this series should be a decent measuring stick for all involved. UBC looked pretty beat up to me after the Bison series. Can the Bedrock Boys take advantage?


    LETHBRIDGE PRONGHORNS (1-1-0, 5-6-0, OHT35 #9)
    SASKATCHEWAN HUSKIES (2-0-0, 3-3-0, OHT35 #11)

    The Hrny nes seem to be getting better and will not be a pushover. The Banjo Mutts are hard to gauge. They continued to stack new recruits without losing anything. However, they were kind of mediocre in pre-season. Was last week's squash of Regina more of a commentary on Regina being weak? Or Sask being strong?


    REGINA COUGARS (0-2-0, 2-6-0, OHT35 #27)
    MOUNT ROYAL COUGARS (0-2-0, 1-4-0, OHT35 #24)

    This Cat Fight sees two very desperate teams. Both were squashed last weekend. The difference is that the Bluegars have been a solid contender in recent seasons. I thought Regina looked like they were coming along nicely. In pre-season they split with the Bisons and split at home, beating Sask and losing to Calgary. Maybe their season peaked in September.
