TNT Bantam A, Silver Medalists in Montreal...We Think.
Submitted By Webmaster on Tuesday, November 28, 2017
TNT Bantam A travelled to the city of Montreal this past weekend. Home of the Canadiens who have won 24 Stanley Cups and 10 Cups since the Leafs last won it in 1967...that's 50 years ago or half a century.

Anyway, back to TNT news...

The team left Thursday morning on a luxurious coach bus driven by John from Denny's who also took us to Pittsburgh last season.

There were only 4 teams in the division so the chance of coming home with some hardware was pretty good. We lost to the Hamilton Huskies who we played in a previous tournament. Our second game was against the Ottawa Sting, who was coached by Daniel Alfredsson who's son plays on that team. I guess having a retired NHLer on the bench helped, we lost to them 5 to 1. We then played the Brampton 45's (nothing like driving 7 hours to play a team that is less than hour away from you, eh?) and took them down 3 to 1.

In the gold medal semi final we faced the Huskies again and lost to this very strong team...again.

That put us in the Silver medal game against Brampton. We had a 2-0 lead going into the third but Brampton battled hard and tied it up. Overtime was 3 on 3. Josh assisted by Brandon scored the winning goal shortly into the OT period.

As for the medal...we definitely played in the silver medal game, however the medal we received is gold and does state "champions" on the back...so I don't know, you be the judge.

Congratulations to players of this team who battled very hard against some tough teams. As usual this group of parents also had an outstanding time together. There was even a heartwarming rendition of Bohemian Rhapsody performed by two of the dads...that's all I'm saying about that! Our hotel was smack dab in the middle of Old Montreal. Many parents and kids had time for some site seeing which included the Notre-Dame Bassilica.
