Moose Lose Heartbreaker

Last night may have been the final game the Manitoba Moose ever play as part of the city of Winnipeg. With the possible relocation of either Atlanta or Phoenix to the ‘Peg’ the Moose seem to be on the way out. If Winnipeg were to get an NHL franchise it is rumored that the Moose will be relocated to Ontario’s Thunder Bay. If indeed it was their last game, as apart of Winnipeg, our boys did not go down without a fight. The 7th game of the series needed three overtimes to determine a winner.

"The question everyone is wondering now is whether or not the Moose have played their final game in WInnipeg?"

After an impressive round one come back, where the Moose were down in the series 3-1 to the Lake Erie Monsters, the Moose fell just short in round two. They fought hard all the way against their rival Hamilton Bulldog counterparts. They started their series against Hamilton buy falling into a 2-0 hole. Just to once again battle back out of it and to ultimately force a game 7.

Last night in Hamilton the Bulldogs and Moose battled for a spot in the third round of the AHL playoffs. We ended up getting a match that went down into the record books. As it turned out this was the longest game 7 in AHL history! The game was intense, full of hits, shots, and great saves by both teams.

Unfortunately for Moose fans the game ended just 6 seconds into the third overtime when Bulldogs forward Dustin Boyd banked in his own dump in off Moose goaltender Eddie Lack. The goal was disappointing and also brought an end to a great run by our Moose. The question everyone is wondering now is whether or not the Moose have played their final game in Winnipeg?

  1. It’s a shame that the Moose may get bumped for an NHL team but I suppose that’s the way life is in the AHL. The relationship between the City and the Moose is/was great. The City and Moose fans did a great job in supporting the team and in return, the Moose logged a number of very nice seasons. It’s a shame to see their run come to an end.

    I do also want to comment on the possible relocation of the team to Thunder Bay. To me, this seems like an incredible fit. I can’t believe nobody has considered this before. It’s great to see the amount of care and attention given to this franchise and my hat goes off to all those people.
