Huskies put forth strong game from start to finish to defeat Grande Prairie 4-2

first_imgTravis McLean was solid as per usual between the pipes as he turned aside 36 of 38 shots. He said the win over Grande Prairie was big in building confidence going forward.“It’s huge. It means that we can beat any team in the league. on any given night no matter what the standings say, if you’re first and you’ve lost only two games this year and we’re one of them that means that any team can win,” he said.Scoring in order for the Huskies last night were Josh Robinson, Cayle Bell, Josh Robinson, and Jerome Thorne.Next for the Huskies is a game on the road tonight in Beaverlodge. The team will next be on home ice on January 30 as they host the Beaverlodge Blades in a make-up game from before the new year. The Fort St. John Huskies were rewarded for a strong showing last night as they faced off against the Grande Prairie JDA Kings. The Huskies won the game 4-2 and handed Grande Prairie only their fourth regulation loss in 23 games.Fort St. John got off to a great start in the game as they opened the scoring just past the three minute mark of the first period. In what could have changed the direction of the game however, Grande Prairie was able to tie the game with 32 seconds remaining in the frame.Not shaken by giving up the late marker the Huskies continued their strong effort and were rewarded mid way through the second. The team found the back of the net 11:06 into the period, and increased their lead to 3-1 just two minutes after that.- Advertisement -Entering the third the Kings were pressing the action trying to get back into the game. They got within one on the power play with just over ten minutes left in the third, but that’s as close as they would get as Fort St. John tacked on an empty netter with 1.6 seconds left on the clock.Head coach Gary Alexander said after the game that the team played well from start to finish and having a near full roster played an important part in being able to do that.“We had a pretty full complement of players which helps a whole bunch. We put 60 minutes of hockey in tonight and that’s a big difference from 20-25. You have to start out like you’re going to finish. If you don’t start out good you’re not going to finish good either,” he said.Advertisement The win was an important one in the standings as it allowed the Huskies to keep the pressure on the Dawson Creek Junior Canucks for home ice advantage in what seems like an inevitable first round playoff series.“We’ve got two games left with them, one here and one there and that will make the difference between home advantage in the first round. It’s important that we close the gap each and every night now,” Alexander stated.The team has added three new players over the past week and a half and it’s played a big part in roster flexibility for the Huskies as well as improving the squad overall when it comes to talent.“We just didn’t have the numbers before and we’re finally getting to a complement where somebody misses and we can still have a full line-up. I can’t remember many times this winter that we actually dressed 20 junior hockey player,” Alexander explained. “Whenever we dressed 20 we had two or three midgets mixed in amongst us. We had a real young club to begin with and it’s taken a long time for them to transition from midget hockey to rougher and tougher junior B.”Advertisementlast_img read more

Manuel suggested for top IMF job

first_imgProfessor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Sloan School of Management and former IMF chief economist, Simon Johnson, told Fin24 Manuel was hotly-tipped as a possible successor. He said if the Brics group of emerging countries (Brazil, Russia, India, China and SA) agreed on a candidate, that person could become a front-runner to head the IMF. On Tuesday, Fin24 reported that National Planning Commission head Trevor Manuel could emerge as a candidate to replace International Monetary Fund (IMF) chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn. Although Strauss-Kahn had not formally stepped down, he was arrested for allegedly sexually assaulting a hotel cleaner in New York. The only way that could happen, was if it reflected the interests of “all countries”. He said there were candidates from several developing countries who were “credible” and “eminently suitable” to run the organisation.center_img “South Africa calls for a candidate from a developing country to be given the opportunity to be the managing director of the IMF. Such a candidate will bring a new perspective that will ensure that the interests of all countries, both developed and developing, are fully reflected in the operations and policies of the IMF.” “Institutions such as the IMF must reform so that they can become credible,” Gordhan said in a statement. 20 May 2011The International Monetary Fund’s new managing director should come from a developing country, South African Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan said on Wednesday.last_img read more
