Notes
- the Wheat Kings scratch G Brandon Anderson (undisclosed), F Tyrel Seaman (concussion) and F Dominick Favreau (shoulder). Edmonton product Curtis Honey gets the start in goal in his hometown.

- Not an easy game for the Wheat Kings to try and bounce back in. The Oil Kings lead the Eastern Conference with a 32-11-2-4 record including a 20-3-1-1 record at Rexall Place.

- Had a chance to speak with former Wheat King Klarc Wilson earlier today, and will play that interview during the second intermission of tonight's broadcast on 880 CKLQ or http://www.cklq.com/.

- Did you know that rookie Edmonton defenceman Ashton Sautner is the son of former Brandon Bobcats' captain and current Regina Cougars' Men's hockey coach Blaine Sautner.

- Brandon's 8-16-0-1 record since November 21st in the second-worst in the Eastern Conference over the last two months.  Here's what they look like:
