Game #51 - Brandon at Calgary (January 27, 2013)

35. Curtis Honey
33. Jordan Papirny

3. Tyler Yaworski - 2. Ryan Pulock
25. Nick Walters - 7. Eric Roy
5. Colton Waltz - 9. Rene Hunter

29. Nick Buonassisi - 20. Chad Robinson - 24. Jens Meilleur
22. Marek Kalus - 23. Tim McGauley - 8. Jayce Hawryluk
19. Taylor Cooper - 15. Jack Palmer - 14. Jason Swyripa
26. Geordie Maguire - 28. Quintin Lisoway - 17. John Quenneville

- Same lineup for the Wheat Kings today as it was for Saturday's loss in Edmonton. G Corbin Boes (lower body, indefinite), F Richard Nejezchleb (hand/thumb, indefinite), F Tyrel Seaman (concussion, out for season) and D Kord Pankewicz (healthy) are the Brandon scratches.

- It's a quick turnaround for the Wheat Kings as they play their third game in three nights on this Alberta road trip.  It's not an ideal scenerio for Brandon against a home team that did not play last night.

- Brandon's power-play is continuing to struggle, and have misfired on 19 straight power-play chances going into tonight's contest.  The Wheat Kings are 2/10ths of a percentage point from being last in the WHL in both power-play and penalty-kill success rate.  Brandon's power-play is 14.7%, just ahead of Prince George's 14.5% success rate.

- Brandon defenceman Eric Roy has scored in back-to-back games, with last night's tally in Edmonton being the 100th career point for the third-year blueliner.

- The Wheat Kings have allowed 187 shots against in their last four contests, and average of 46.8 against per game.
