Hart 1 - O'Connor 0

We all know that the Stars and Bombers have a bitter rivalry on the ice.. But what you may not know is that the Flin Flon radio guy and the Battlefords radio guy... ME... have a rivalry too.

We decided to have a little fun and settle a score on the ice this morning with a shootout. We each took turns shooting on Flin Flon netminder Randy Graham, and let's just say that it's obvious why I call hockey and don't play it professionally.

The shootout went seven rounds, with Rob Hart scoring on a sweet back-hand deke to take the lead. I tried going forehand upstairs, and was denied by Randy Graham. "He
protected his net really well. I thought I had him beat a couple of times fore-hand, but he came up big. Rob beat him with a nice move," I said after the shootout.

10 disappointed North Star players went home for their lunch, and nap after watching the voice of the North Stars fall in the shootout.

In the end, it was all in fun. And truth be told.. There is no REAL rivalry between the radio guys. And I've got a newsflash for Flin Flon - There are no shootouts in the playoffs! Haha.

Congrats Rob on a great shootout! Thanks to Randy Graham for making me look bad!
Enjoy the game tonight, and the series.
