Just Notes
- Corbin Boes makes his fourth straight start in goal for Brandon. Boes is 3-0 with a 2.00 GAA and .938 SPCT in his last three starts.

- Dominick Favreau (ribs) and Ryley Miller (hand) are Brandon's scratches tonight. D Ayrton Nikkel travelled with the team to Regina, but will be heading back to his club team (Pursuit of Excellence, Kelowna) tomorrow.

- With Matt MacKay's 18-game point streak coming to an end last night, Mark Stone now has the longest current point streak in the WHL at 16 games. Stone has 10 goals and 37 points during his 16-game streak.

- Scott Glennie needs one point tonight to reach 300 for his WHL career while Stone enters play tonight four points shy of 100 for the season.

- Brandon's fourth line of Tyrel Seaman, Jason Swyripa and Jens Meilleur have been playing very well for the Wheat Kings as of late. I talked to Meilleur prior to tonight's game about the threesome being a spark plug for the team...

- Brandon enters play tonight one point behind sixth-place Edmonton in the WHL's Eastern Conference. The Oil Kings visit Medicine Hat in one of the other eight games on the WHL schedule.
