Mudbugs Soar Over Eagles in Game 5, Take Series Lead

BOSSIER CITY, LA – David Rutherford scored a hat trick and linemates Nick Layton and Justin Aikins accounted for three more goals as the Bossier-Shreveport Mudbugs blitzed the Colorado Eagles 7-2 in Game 5 of the Ray Miron Presidents’ Cup Finals Friday night at the CenturyTel Center.*The Mudbugs now lead the best-of-seven series 3-2 and will have a chance to clinch the CHL Championship when the series shifts back to Colorado for Game 6 on Wednesday.
*
Rutherford became the first Mudbug to score a playoff hat trick since Chris Brassard in 2005 and added in assist to lead the way with four points for Bossier-Shreveport.*Layton scored twice and had an assist, while Justin Aikins rounded out the line with a goal and two helpers.*At the other end of the ice, Ryan Munce finished with 32 saves to earn the win in his first start since April 15.
*
The Mudbugs started quickly in the game, jumping ahead 1-0 on their first powerplay chance of the night when David Rutherford stickhandled through traffic just inside the Colorado blueline before skating free into the right circle and beating Kyle Jones top-shelf at 7:23.*Four minutes later, another Bossier-Shreveport powerplay produced the same result when Travis Clayton and Justin Aikins combined to get a pass into the low circle to Rutherford, who slid a backhander into the net to give the ‘Bugs a 2-0 advantage through one period.
*
Layton banged home a centering pass from Rutherford at the top of the crease early in the second to make it 3-0 for the Mudbugs.*Jim Jorgensen got into the act at 11:37, picking up a puck that bounced off Brett Smith in the high slot and beating Kyle Jones to put the lead at 4-0.*Jones was then replaced in goal by Andrew Penner for Colorado.*Layton’s second goal was set up when the Eagles coughed up the puck in their own zone, allowing the amateur forward to skate in unopposed and beat Penner stick-side to give the ‘Bugs a 5-0 lead through 40 minutes.
*
Dan Sullivan tapped in Scott May’s perfect cross-ice pass at 4:18 of the third to get Colorado on the board, but Rutherford answered with the hat trick goal three minutes later.*Rutherford broke in down the left boards and used defenseman Aaron Schneekloth as a screen before firing a laser over Penner’s glove to put the lead back to five.*Aikins beat Penner over the right shoulder to make it 7-1 later in the period before A.J. Hau tacked on a late goal to provide the final 7-2 margin in the Mudbugs’ last home game of the season.
*
Ryan Munce (3-2) earned his second win in as many nights by making 13 saves in both the first and third periods on his way to 32 stops in total.*Kyle Jones (4-5) took the loss after making 19 saves on 23 shots in the first 31-plus minutes, while Penner turned aside ten shots and gave up three goals in relief.*Bossier-Shreveport outshot Colorado 36-34 and scored on 2 of 7 powerplays, while the Eagles went 0 for 3 on the man-advantage.
*
With the ‘Bugs now leading the best-of-seven series 3-2, the teams will have four days to pause as the series shifts to the Budweiser Events Center in Loveland, Colorado.*The Mudbugs will then have a chance to clinch the President’s Cup Championship Wednesday in Game 6, which is set for 8:05 pm Central time.

I guess we'll try one more time Friday night.

Bugs Falter in Colorado as Eagles Force Game 7

05/25/2011 11:00 PM -
LOVELAND, CO – Game 6 of the CHL Ray Miron Presidents’ Cup Finals got off to a rocky start and didn’t improve much for the Bossier-Shreveport Mudbugs in an 8-1 loss to the Colorado Eagles Wednesday night at the Budweiser Events Center. With the win, Colorado has evened the best-of-seven series at three games apiece and forced a decisive Game 7 in which a CHL Champion will be determined Friday night in Colorado.

Steven Crampton notched the only goal for the Mudbugs, who also had a Jamie Milam tally disallowed after it was ruled that the puck was kicked into the net. The ‘Bugs went 0 for 5 on the powerplay and used both goaltenders as they surrendered eight goals in the playoffs for the first time ever on the way to the most lopsided defeat in franchise history.

Colorado jumped on the Mudbugs early in Game 6, starting with Scott May’s powerplay goal from the right circle less than three minutes in. Aaron Schneekloth followed later in the period, cutting into the slot and beating Ryan Munce over his right shoulder. Kevin Ulanski’s shorthanded goal just over two minutes later signaled the end of the night for Munce, who was replaced by John DeCaro as Bossier-Shreveport trailed 3-0 after one.

Adam Chorneyko scored another powerplay goal early in the second frame that was followed by Daymen Rycroft’s tip-in of a Jason Beatty shot from the point to make it 5-0. The game then turned ugly as the teams combined for 45 total penalty minutes in the second period alone. After the officials ruled that Milam illegally deflected a Shawn Limpright pass into the net with his skate, Steven Crampton got the Mudbugs on the board with a rebound goal off a backhand shot from Brett Smith at 12:32 of the period.

With the game firmly in hand, Colorado extended the lead in the third with goals from Chorneyko and May before Chorneyko completed the hat trick with just 1:30 left in the game.

Ryan Munce (3-3) took the loss after giving up three goals on seven shots in the first 17 minutes, while John DeCaro made 11 saves and surrendered five goals in the last 43 minutes of play. Kyle Jones (5-5) stopped 24 shots as Bossier-Shreveport actually outshot Colorado 25-23 in the contest. The Eagles scored two powerplay goals on four chances while holding the ‘Bugs scoreless on five opportunities.

With the Presidents’ Cup Finals now tied at three games apiece, the 2011 CHL Champion will be determined by one final game at the Budweiser Events Center. Game 7 of the series is set for 8:05 pm Central time on Friday night, with radio coverage beginning at 7:45 pm on AM 1130 KWKH.

The game will also be shown live on CHL-TV, and don’t forget you can join your fellow ‘Bugs fans in watching Friday’s Game 7 at Archie Hebert’s Sports Bar & Grill (located at the Villagio in Bossier City), for the official Mudbugs playoff watch party.

*
Finishing with a 14-3 shot advantage in the third period, the Eagles finally broke through with 1:04 remaining when Adam Chorneyko fired a perfect shot over DeCaro’s glove hand to make it 2-1.*Colorado would not threaten again in the final minute however, as Bossier-Shreveport held on to win the game 2-1.

Ok, here it is, the 2011 Central Hockey League Ray Miron Presidents’ Cup! It's been a long hard season, but worth it. Thanks you guys for not ragging me for putting my Mudbugs stuff up here. It's been fun.

Now that the season is over, I have to find myself another avatar.





















Until next year!!

yea, Mudbugs! Thats fun stuff, Hulka. Hockey is an awesome game, and I'd go every game, if I could.

Here in Houston the Calder Cup Series is tied 1-1 / Aeros vs. Binghamton, NY. Game 3, 4, 5 will be there, then the Series comes back to Houston, if still on.

Really the support from Houston fans is pathetic, but not surprising. Houston is quickly becoming a SOCCER city. Yes, it is that bad.

Thanks Mike! We've had a good time this year and especially during the playoffs. I may even have my wife talked into season tickets for me and my little girl. We'll see. LOL
Good luck with the Aeros. You need to go to every game you can. Take someone who's never been to a hockey game before. Make sure you say something on the radio every chance you get. People need to get out and support the local teams. The Mudbugs is a quality team in a quality league, but the support at the games could be a lot better. We may not even have the Mudbugs next year. I think it's just because they are hardly ever mentioned on air, tv or radio. People hardly ever hear about them. They need someone to talk about them, get excited about them, and make other people want to go. That's what I do every time I tell someone about the Mudbugs game. People just need to go. They won't be sorry.

I pretty much mention the Aeros now every newscast, plus I talk them up on the station's facebook. Those boys deserve support and love. They play their hearts out. I think theyre finally getting some crowds, but in a city of 4 million, I just have to say Houston is a pathetic sports city. 40 times the size of New Orleans, and yet when the Texans play, you barely know there's an NFL event going on. I can understand nobody going to see the Astros, or at least I could, when they had a lame duck owner-- but then look at the Cubs fans support in Wrigley, and what have the Cubs ever done?

The only thing here getting rabid support is soccer, if that tells you the state of Houston.

ANYWAY, GO AEROS!!!!
