After melting away the Blizzard, the Bobcats face a new challenge, although it is not the challenge that many people thought it would be. Instead of the Minotauros, it’s the Bruins. On today’s Sheriff’s Patrol, you will hear from Head Coach and General Manager Layne Sedevie, and we got his thoughts on the Bruins. Also joining us will be #7 “Downtown” Willy Brown. You will hear Layne’s thoughts on Hunter Shepard and Kris Carlson.
After the Bobcats were successful in melting away Dan Daikawa and the Brookings Blizzard, they brought themselves within one series of lifting one of the holy grails of hockey. Coach Sedevie is within six wins of his first Robertson Cup, as the bench-boss of the Bismarck Bobcats. But first, he has to get by Kyle Grobowski and his Bruins. Which would mean he would have to beat one of the most stout goalies in the NAHL, #31 Kris Carlson, for the Bruins. The Bruins are without one of their top shooters, Gilbert Gabor, due to a blown-out knee he suffered against Minot. That doesn’t mean that the Bruins are without weapons. They still have Jade Miller, and if you don’t pay attention he will burn you.
When it comes to goaltenders, we can’t forget about #29, Hunter Shepard. According to Layne Sedevie, “He is the best in the league.” Shepard was a little off in game 3, but he was right on when the Bobcats needed him to be. He helped the Bobcats in the process of melting the Blizzard, who are now golfing! When it comes to the series that is before them, coach Sedevie thinks that the coaching staff are still being careful with the Bruins, and what they try to do, even though they don’t have one of their top shooters.
