WEEK AT A GLANCE Another strong week for the G-Men, tallying a record of 8-1, with the lone loss of the week coming at the hands of the Spokane Chiefs on Monday night. Key wins over the Royals, Rockets and Blazers ensured Vancouver’s spot at the top of the B.C. division for another week. In total, the Giants outscored their opponents 41-14, backed by a great week between the pipes by all three netminders who appeared for the G-Men. GAME OF THE WEEK Tough choice, but the final game of week 4 gets the nod as the Giants game of the week. The Kamloops Blazers, who are currently holding onto the final playoff spot in the WHL gave the Giants a run for their money. Don’t let the final score fool you, the Blazers pushed Vancouver to their limit and had to come up with their best play all week to come out with the victory. Cobra Dan came up huge for the Giants with a 4 goal, 5 point performance up front and the first star in the win, but overlooked is the TC goaltender filling the void for the team, likeabosspie2, who made 11 crucial saves to seal the win. The best part? These two teams go right back at it to kick off week 5 on Sunday evening. B.C. DIVISION OUTLOOK The B.C. Division race has turned into a three-headed dragon, with the Royals, Giants and Rockets all vying for the division banner while holding onto the three playoff spots within the division. Not to say the Cougars or the Blazers are out of the hunt yet, but these three teams have definitely got the jump on the bottom two teams. The Victoria Royals are still clinging onto that 1st place spot after a red hot start, but have seen their lead vanish over the past two weeks. The Royals are also 14-1-1 in one-goal games. Skill or luck? It’s a heated rivalry between the Giants and Royals, with the G-Men taking the latest encounter this week by a whopping 7-1, but these teams of course reacquaint themselves on Monday to rekindle the fire. The Rockets are the dark horse team of the division, and the Blazers won’t go down without a fight, while the Cougars look to end a rough skid and get back into the race. STAT SHEET GCampbell continues his race for the league scoring title, but a forfeit game really hurt his chances this week, allowing his competition in the OHL to take a sizable lead heading into the weekend. The 1-2 punch of Exodus and Freezor continue to be a huge contribution up front, while Kaliser, Thrice and Bacon are all making contributions on their respective lines. On defence, there’s still some getting used to after the week began with some big moves, but ownership believes they now have the right combination on defence to make a run at the Memorial Cup. Newcomers Ebola Granola and Zeblaf have paired up nicely on the top unit, forming a strong chemistry coming from seperate transactions. The hidden gem of the Giants so far this season has been their terrific goaltending from both Qwikfinger and Jimmy, who are both near the top of the league in both goals against average and save percentage, with Jimmy earning Player of the Week honours after his outstanding Week 4 performance. GIANTS ON THE MOVE Like the previous weeks, Bacon continued to shuffle the defence around to begin the week, but has seemed to find his fit of who he likes on the back end. Acquiring Ebola from the Sherbrooke Phoenix has paid instand dividends on the top line, while the return of Perfect Sean has bolstered the bottom pairing with TBennz finally having a recurring partner. The biggest splash of the week came when Bacon moved blossoming D-man Bulging Twine to the London Knights as part of a 3-for-1 trade for Merson. After some initial backlash from within the organization and abroad, things have seemed to settle down after no more moves were made for the rest of the week. After dropping to #11 in the power rankings last week, the Giants came out and showed why they’re considered one of the top teams in the WHL and the entire CHL, and will look to overtake the Royals atop the B.C. Division come week 5.
