Wranglers cap improbable comeback


CALGARY, Alta. – A most improbable series comeback has vaulted the Calgary Wranglers into the VHL’s North American Conference final. After a 72-game slate where the Wranglers scored a league-high 298 goals for, none of that seemed to matter to their rivals from Toronto as the Legion held the high flying Wranglers in check en route to a surprising 3-1 series lead.


As sports always tells us, no lead is safe. With the Wranglers facing elimination at home in Game 5, it would wind up being the Legion who dominated the offensive play, outshooting Calgary 37-22. As star goaltending Alexander Labatte kept them in the game, Michal Wozniak finally ended it in the first overtime frame and sent the series back to Toronto.


Game 6 would be one of the ages, a thrilling affair that needed almost three full overtime periods to determine a winner. With the final shots giving a 77-60 edge to Toronto, the Wranglers once again would emerge the victor on another overtime goal by Wozniak – his sixth of the series. With the series heading back to Calgary, the momentum had undoubtedly switched sides and Calgary cruised to a 3-1 victory in the decisive seventh game to cap what will go down as one of the best playoff series’ in VHL history.
