Stars Fall 3-2. Season Over.

A disappointing season came to a disappointing end Tuesday with a 3-2 loss to the Flin Flon Bombers in Game Four of the Bauer Conference Survivor Series. Ashton Bernard's first goal as a Flin Flon Bomber clinched the series at 9:31 of the third and P.J. Musico did what he had too in goal to help send Flin Flon to the next round.

Over the next few days, players will have their 'exit meetings' with the Coaching Staff and an Awards Banquet will be held before everyone parts ways for a little while.

A depressing time indeed for players, fans, coaches, volunteers and broadcasters who would still rather be in the thick of things. Such is life in hockey though.

Over the next few days I will keep sprinkling the blog with updates. I did my best to reflect and thank the necessary folks after the game, but obviously there is a lot more still to be said in lew of this seasons conclusion.

But right now it is 3:00 A.M. and we are still a few miles from home. For now it's simply about embracing the final hours together on the bus.

I really like our future.... Looking at the other teams rosters in our division, i think we're gonna be very deep... We're gonna have an off year every once in a while.. I really like what Ken has done with the future... Ive seen that Zimbalauk kid play that a guy mentioned earlier, hes a good player. Hes already played with the Swift Current Broncos. Hes the guy we got for Perrault. Swensen who we got for Leclerc in the Folstad deal was one of the top defencemen in AAA with the Mintos.. Forbes is gonna be good... Young hometown product Samborski lead the Saskatoon Blazers in scoring..... The list goes on... I really like the guys coming back too... Tatchell,Miller, Hall, Schwab, Rollins, Klassen,Luhning,Sparrow, Zach, Fortier... HIldy... I really think we're in good shape..
