Canadians taking care of business at home
by Randy Pascal

For the time being, at least, the Rayside-Balfour Canadians are winning the games they need to be winning.

Following a brief stumble in a home and home set earlier this month with the Blind River Beavers, the Canadians have re-calibrated. Thursday night in Chelmsford, the locals made it four straight wins, stopping the French River Rapids 5-1 and increasing their lead atop the NOJHL West Division to three points over the Soo Thunderbirds.

Rayside wasted little time in taking control of the contest, scoring three times in the first period as Evan Krassey, Matt Neault and Christian Gaudreault all hit the mark for the homeside.

Donny Schulz would get one back for French River in the second, before the Canadians countered with a pair in the final frame, courtesy of James White and Neault, into a vacant cage.

Jean-Marc Brisson registered the win in net for Rayside, turning aside 32 shots, while Andrew Rocha was saddled with the loss, posting 28 saves. The Canadians must now make two trips in a five day span, across the border, facing the Soo Eagles, who sit in fourth place, nine points back of the locals.

Rayside-Balfour does not play again at home until Thursday, March 1st, when they host the Thunderbirds to kick off the final week of regular season play.
