Stanley Cup Finals Excitement: Edmonton vs. Florida

The Stanley Cup Finals have been a rollercoaster! Edmonton is poised to force an incredible Game 7 against Florida, defying the odds and keeping cardiologists in business! The Oilers have shown incredible resilience, coming back from a 3-0 series deficit with plans to tie it up on Friday.

Review of the Series:

  • Games 1-3: Florida dominated, taking a commanding 3-0 lead.
  • Game 4: Edmonton turned the tide with a crucial win.
  • Games 5: The Oilers continued their comeback, dragging FLA back to Edmonton.

Odds and History:

  • Current Odds: Slight edge to Edmonton at 125.
  • Historical Context: The last team to come back from a 3-0 deficit in the Stanley Cup Finals was the Toronto Maple Leafs in 1942. Can Edmonton make history repeat itself?

Get ready for an epic Game 7, as the Oilers aim to complete their stunning comeback and clinch the Stanley Cup!

Rink & Ice Time Update

Rink & Ice Time Update

Crystal Fieldhouse

A Zamboni driver rammed into the NW corner of the South rink, pushing it out a couple of inches. The good news is that it is repaired and the corner now does not have the feature of deflecting the puck out the center ice when you rip it around:)

The North Rink ice will be taken out to make repairs in June. A bunch of sand needs moved out to make line repairs, then clean sand brought in and a thin layer of ice to be set in order to paint. This all will take a few weeks to accomplish, so we will be down a sheet over the summer.

Summer Ice Time

The Friday night skates are attempting to continue through the summer thanks to Ian Roulleau. Please join Ian’s Beers & Benders list on – Beers & Benders of Davison.

Ian of Beers & Benders has a number of 1 hr 15 min. Friday nights at 7:30 pm setup.

Easy to join his Open list by clicking the Menu and then Skater Dashboard to click Skate Lists.

Scrolling down under Potential Lists hit the green symbol in corner to join the list.

Then go back to Skater Menu and hit Skates to find the available skates and Book.

Open Drop In Wednesdays

Wednesday afternoon at 3PM is an open drop in. Mostly older skaters, but no restrictions as we can always use a few more bodies! If you can work it out in your schedule it is a great workout. To give some perspective, I wear an Apple Watch only when I skate to monitor my heart and such. During a game I’ll skate .5 mile. One Wednesday I typically rack up .75 miles or more. Lots of ice time!

Playoffs start next weekend

Playoffs start next weekend

The Eclectic Hockey League (EHL) is gearing up for its postseason showdown, with the regular season closing on March 10th. The playoffs, unfolding over the following two weeks, promise intense competition as four teams vie for the league championship. Here’s a detailed look at the playoff schedule, ensuring fans know what to expect at each turn.

Week 1: The Opening Round

  • 9:30 AM Game: The playoff opener features the 6th seed against the 5th seed.
  • 10:45 AM Game: Next up, the 3rd seed faces the 2nd seed.
  • Noon Game: The day’s final matchup sees the 4th seed taking on the 1st seed.

Week 2: The Decisive Battles

  • 9:30 AM Game: The action resumes with the loser of the Week 1 9:30 AM game playing against the lowest-seeded loser from the 10:45 AM or Noon games.
  • 10:45 AM Game: This game features the winner of the Week 1 9:30 AM game against the highest-seeded loser from the 10:45 AM or Noon games.
  • Noon Championship: The championship game is the apex of the EHL playoffs, with the winners of the Week 2 10:45 AM game and the Week 1 Noon game facing off. This is where the season’s champion will be crowned, in a match that promises to be a memorable climax to the tournament.

The Run For Stanley Pints

This playoff format is designed to maximize competition and suspense, ensuring that every match is pivotal. Each team will enjoy a case of beer on Commissioner Dave.

Key Dates

The playoffs start on March 17th and conclude on March 24th, allowing the EHL to crown its champion before the Easter holidays and the start of various tournaments.

Wrapping Up

As the EHL playoffs approach, we look back at a season with a few surprises. Teams that were at the bottom of the rankings last season are now contenders. The team managers are greatly appreciated as they help make the league work. Big thanks to Ty Burt, Jeff Rouse, Jeff Weiler, Eric Schauwecker, Gerald Edwards, and Tony Endicott.

This season we asked a bit more of our team managers with the task of player check-in. The rosters and game check-in are a big part of keeping this league fairly organized. A few teams did great with the task, but it was less than perfect. Next season we will go back to having a check-in person and I’ll run the scoring and provide a “more colorful” player experience. This will help with our stats, and a little rock n roll will liven up the games.

The draft concept was floated, but the response was not overwhelming for the adoption. We will stay with bringing teams and the plan is to petition for one more sheet to expand to eight teams if possible.

Thanks for being a part of the league, it is an honor to skate with you.

Feb 23 Hockey Update

Feb 23 Hockey Update

A brief update on the week in local hockey.

Sad News

Monday night there was a ceremony at center ice for Eric Schroeder who passed recently. Eric’s long battle with cancer is over. Our condolences to his brother Devin and the family.

I tried to attend the ceremony, but a deer had other ideas for me. Have a good cheap car for sale:)

Greg Parker showed up Monday night with a huge card for Jimmy Desantis. Yeah, cancer took Jimmy on Wednesday. Jimmy was the inspiration for my goalie award I call the Tall Boy. He will be missed.

The week isn’t over yet. On Thursday, Gary Nehring passed away at 58. A brain aneurysm took him out.

I’m a firm believer that we increase our odds of longevity by staying active. According to John Bishop, ice hockey is the type of exercise to reduce your chance of neurological issues. John is my idol at what.. 78 and still playing!

Keep your head up and stick on the ice!


EHL News

2024 CCWHA (Central Collegiate Women’s Hockey Association) playoff tournament runs through Sunday. Our league is running while they play a game and there may be a shower issue.

The showers between 4/5 and 9/10 could be our teams and 1/2 and 6/7 could be the ladies, but that would put opposing teams and coaches in a shared shower area with close proximity to competitor locker rooms.

I’ve been told that it would be a bad idea by some. Be prepared for drama on Sunday.

Draft League

I’ll decide on whether to convert to a draft league or stay the same by the end of the season. What I need is your feedback.

Tell me if you like or don’t like this idea and if you would consider running a team and helping with the ranking and drafting of players. If there is enough interest and support I’ll proceed, otherwise we will drop the idea.
