Go Cats Go!!!!!

Most PIM in the league, more than double the 5th place Everett. Cougars were short handed for almost 22 games! If they stay out of the box and they’ll be fine.

    Agreed, partly …. I’ve been at 95% of the home games this season and at a majority of the games the reffing was awful, at the expense of the Cougars. I’ve walked out of games early due to the bad reffing spoiling the the games and making people angry, and many others did the same. From what I’ve seen during the last part of the season the Cougars were playing very disciplined hockey and were not taking unnecessary penalties. They’ll be fine if the reffing is better!
