Your Drumheller Dragons continued their playoff series with the Canmore Eagles on Sunday and Monday.  These two teams continue to battle going into the games on the weekend tied at one game a piece. 

Drumheller came out ready to play in game three.  The Dragons scored two power-play goals in the first period on goals by Troy Dudley and Markus Boguslavsky.  They added to their lead in the second period with a goal by Roc Truman and a short-handed marker by Hassan Akl.   The Eagles would get one later in the second period to make it 4-1 Drumheller going into the third period.  Cue the comeback as the Eagles would score three goals in the first ten minutes of the third period on goals from Tian Rask, Mark Drohan, and Taden Rattie.  The game would go to overtime, just as game one and two did.  This is the first time since the Dragons joined the league in 2003-2004 that the first three games of a series have gone to overtime.  Early in OT, Drumheller would get the game winner.  The game-winning call by Jason Blanke and Dustin Edwards is below. 

With the goal by Eric Martin, Drumheller would take the series lead 2-1 into the game on Monday night.

Canmore came out fighting for their playoff lives on Monday.  Just as the other games have been, it was close once again.  Canmore would get on the board first in the first period when Tian Rask would score his second of the playoffs.  The Eagles would take the lead all the way to 13-minute mark of the third period where Dragons Scout Truman would score to tie the game at one.  Drumheller had their chances to end the game in regulation but the post and Eagles goalie Thomas Davis would shut the door.  For the fourth time in this series, overtime would be needed.  Dragons forward Hassan Akl would have a breakaway opportunity early in the period.  He beat Davis but could not beat the post.  There was a scramble where Davis was lying on the ice but the Dragons couldn't get the puck over the outstretched Eagles goalie.  On the counter play, the Eagles would streak into the zone and Tian Rask would wire one from the top of the left circle that Dragons goalie Daniel Allin didn't see.  The Eagles would win the game and force a game five in the series on Wednesday night in Drumheller.  

We will have the game for you starting with the Riverside Value Drug Mart Pregame Show starting at 6:45 with Jason Blanke and Ron Bell.  Puck drop will be at 7:00 pm.
