Flyers with big hill to climb after game two loss to Grimshaw

first_imgShots in the contest were 35-29 in favour of the Huskies.Game three goes Thursday night in Grimshaw with the series returning to Fort St. John for game four on Saturday night. FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Fort St. John Flyers have their work cut out for them if they plan on advancing to the North Peace Hockey League finals. Following a 3-1 loss to the Grimshaw Huskies Tuesday night the Flyers find themselves down 2-0 in the best of seven semifinal series with two of the next three games on the road in Grimshaw.The Flyers got off to a solid start in game two as they converted on a two on one rush early in the first to take the lead. They’d hold the advantage for most of the period but a late goal off of a couple of deflections tied the game for Grimshaw.With the momentum after the late goal in the first the Huskies went out in front in the second as they capitalized on a two on one rush of their own. A defensive lapse by the Flyers late in the frame put Grimshaw up by two at 3-1.- Advertisement -The third was a struggle for Fort St. John as they tried to get back into the game. Issues with breakout passes and an inability to create scoring chances did the team in as they were unable to get any closer.Considering the offensive outburst by both sides in game one, Flyers head coach Andrew Leriger felt the tone of game two was dictated by the teams making a more concerted effort to lock down defensively.“I think after Saturday’s game when it was more of a run and gun style game, both teams clamped down a little bit in their zone. We fell victim to a little bit of puck luck. [We] hit a couple of posts. It could have been either way at the end of the night,” he said.Advertisement For as well as Fort St. John did on the road in the regular season it’s been the complete opposite for the playoffs. The team is 0-3 on the road in the post-season so far, a stat that will clearly need to change going forward.“We’ve got to learn how to win a game on the road. We went from having our best record on the road in the regular season to not winning a game on the road. They have to figure out a way to win on the road; we’re going to have to win two in their barn now,” Leriger said.Travis McLean got the surprise start in goal for game two and the argument could be made he deserved a better fate as he made a number of difficult saves from in close throughout the contest. Leriger said it was the plan regardless of game one’s outcome to give McLean the start, and added considering his performance it’s up in the air who will be between the pipes in game three.The lone goal for the Flyers was scored by Jeff Shipton.Advertisementlast_img read more

Easier norms may help Indian firms go global

first_imgThe proposed Outward Direct Investment (ODI) policy may contain provisions to make it easy for many Indian firms, envisioning ambitious plans to transform themselves into multi-national companies (MNC), to go global and expand.Approval requirements and other norms would be simplified in a manner that would encourage ‘internationalisation’ of Indian companies. However, sources, privy to the developments, also said the ODI policy was expected to tighten regulations to prevent round-tripping structures, where funds are routed by India-based companies into a newly formed or existing overseas subsidiary and then brought back to India to circumvent regulations here. They said the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) and the Finance Ministry (tax department) were concerned about such structures.Read it at The Hindu Related Itemslast_img read more
