Odds and Ends
The Ghostriders haven’t seen the Storm since November and both teams have made several changes since. The biggest change Kamloops made was in net and they now have all-star goalie Anthony Manfredi back in net again….. The Ghostriders have also made changes in net. When the Riders played the Storm in September Nigel Nolan was in goal and in November Devan Hartigan was between the pipes for the Riders….. You may remember Hartigan in the last series with Beaver Valley when new Rider goalie Jason Greenwell out dueled him and sent em to the golf course…..Greenwell is at 8-5 with a 906 save %…. Lundy Trenaman 15, David Gore 15 and Jassi Sanga 14 pts. are the Storm’s top scorers in the playoffs so far. Sanga was fourth overall in the KIJHL in the regular season…..With 19 points Scott Traverse is the Top P/O scorer in the league so far….. Dave McIvor has 15 and Richard Small 13 …..Brett Lyon is right behind them with 11 pts. and had 5 goals in the last series and 2 of them were game winners, one in overtime in game 4 and 2 including the game winner in the final game.
