Rangers in the hunt

By Doug Zywina

Herald Reporter 

The Parkland Rangers are in the thick of the race atop the Manitoba AAA Midget Hockey League standings.

After a week which saw the Rangers win two of three games, Parkland finds itself just two points out of first place.

After sweeping their two games at the Showcase Weekend in Steinbach, the Rangers won their third straight with a 3-2 come-from-behind win over the Yellowhead Chiefs, Wednesday in Hamiota.

The Chiefs held a 2-0 lead with less than 10 minutes remaining on goals from Dayton Heino and Tyler Scantlebury. But the Rangers erased that deficit, thanks to their power play.

Daniel Chartrand, Matthew Greening and Ryland Nernberg all had power-play goals in a five-minute span in the third period to lift the Rangers to the victory. Greening added a pair of assists for a three-point effort.

Brett Evans made 24 saves to earn the win in goal. Brett Friesen took the loss, making 29 saves.

Parkland made it four straight wins with a 5-2 triumph over the Southwest Cougars, Friday in Roblin.

Tyler Derkach, Andrew Bayduza, Riley McKay, Chartrand and Joshua Tripp scored for the Rangers, while Cole Ritchot made 30 saves to pick up the win.

Kyle Elliott and Quin Hobbs scored for Southwest. Jay Pringle had a busy night, stopping 43 of the shots he faced.

The winning streak came to an end, Sunday when the Rangers fell 2-0 to the Brandon Wheat Kings.

Bradley Schoonbaert snapped a scoreless draw 6:11 into the third period and added an empty-net goal with 11 seconds left in regulation.

Josh Petersen made 21 saves to earn the shutout, while Evans made 26 saves in taking the loss.

Chartrand had his consecutive games point streak snapped at nine with the loss to Brandon.

Rangers coach Doug Hedley was pleased with his team’s play, noting players are stepping up at certain points in every game.

“We’re down 2-0 halfway through the third period in Hamiota against Yellowhead and our power play got hot at the right time,” he said.

The Rangers got off to a bit of a slow start Friday in Roblin, but Hedley felt they played well in the final two periods.

And he had high praise for the officiating crew of Trevor Robak, Dave Height and Darren Clinton.

“Kudos to the officiating. It was one of the best games we’ve had officiated on both sides all year. There was no real frustration by the players, because they reffed it consistently and let the guys play. They weren’t a real factor in the game,” Hedley said.

The Rangers outplayed Southwest badly in the second period, but only held a one-goal lead going into the third.

Chartrand scored to make it 4-2, creating some separation, allowing Parkland to put the game away.

Against Brandon, the Rangers created a lot of chances, but the Wheat Kings did a good job of getting their sticks in the shooting lanes.

“Brandon did a good job of getting sticks on pucks. We had some good opportunities that were just deflected at the last moment or just missed the net. Ryland Nernberg hit the post, probably just a couple of minutes before Brandon scored,” Hedley said.

“It was one of those things where we had opportunities to go up. But we can play with those guys. There’s no doubt in our minds. We stuck with them.”

The Rangers are missing two young defencemen due to injury. Hedley said Brayden North and Tyler Jubenvill will make a big difference when they return to the lineup.

With a 6-4 record, the Rangers are tied with the 6-1 Winnipeg Thrashers with 12 points. Leading the pack are the Winnipeg Wild (7-1), Wheat Kings (7-3) and Eastman Selects (7-3) with 14 points each.

“Those close games we lost last year, we’re finding ways to put them away this year,” Hedley said.

“That’s a sign of maturity a little bit and experience and just believing in what we have going on. In the room right now,  it’s a good feeling. The guys know we’re in every game we play and they expect to win. We’re definitely going in the right direction.”

This weekend will see the Rangers make the annual trek north to face the Norman North Stars in Thompson, Saturday at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday at 1:30 p.m.
