Canes play well, but lose...

Canes lost their game against the Bruins last night 4-2.

I didn't think that the Canes played that bad, really. I thought they had a pretty good pace for most of the game - they just didn't capitalize on the chances they had and they ended up losing.

The first goal was a Matt Cullen tip-in of an awesome Chad LaRose shot - maybe this is the beginning of another streak for my man LaRose? Hopefully.

The second Canes goal was a wicked shot by Anton Babchuk. He's another one I want to go on a scoring spree - he definitely still has his slapshot.

And, Tuomo Ruutu was a hitting machine last night - pretty much, if it had a Boston Bruins jersey on, he wasn't skating around it, but through it. I get more and more impressed with this guy as the season goes on - how could Chicago give up on him?

Hopfully the Canes good play will transfer into more wins against the big teams like Boston soon.

Next game is New Year's Eve against the Thrashers.

Chad LaRose: 1 assist
On the season: 8 goals, 3 assists

I was looking for information about Okanagan Hockey Academy and I stumbled upon some information that caused me great concern. It's a blog called Okanagan Hockey Academy. I was thinking about sending my 14 year-old boy to OHA but if the information on this blog is true, I would never send him there.

What can you tell me about OHA? Do they really have a crack house on campus? What are some good hockey schools in Canada where my son can develop and be relatively safe from harm?

Is it true Kerr was fired from Port Alberni due to favouritism of his son?

Thanks for any help or comments on this subject.
