NEW GLASGOW – The Amherst CIBC Wood Gundy Ramblers lost 5-2 to the Weeks Crushers Saturday night in New Glasgow and, just like every other game in the series, it’s been the home team that has won each game.

If the current trend continues, the Ramblers will win Game 6 in Amherst, and the best-of-seven Maritime Hockey League playoff series be will be decided in Game 7 in New Glasgow, and anything can happen in a Game 7.

In Saturday's game the Ramblers were up 2-0 after the first period.

Brett Shute opened the scoring at 6:32 into the first period off passes from Cam McDonald and Willie MacDonald, and then Brock Morrison put the Ramblers up 2-0 at 16:18 into the first off passes from Ryan Caswell and McDonald.

The second and third periods were all Weeks Crushers. They scored two goals in the second period and three goals in the third period.

The Ramblers were outshot 50-37.

    WINGMAN, I totally agree with what you have said, having viewed most of these last Rambler vs Weeks games, it is very obvious that the Ramblers are in the referees bad books (for some unknown reason) that I know of. Yes they do take some penalties that are called for, however on many occassions they get called for something that is very questionable that the other teams get away with. Hope the Ramblers win on Friday night and bring their A game to New Glasgow on Saturday night. "GO RAMBLERS GO"

    This league does not want Amherst to win and will do anything to prevent it. Why is it Amherst always seems to take double the penalties as the other team. It reminds me of when Toronto plays whenever they fall behind you can bet the other team will be on a steady march to the penalty box until TO either catches up or goes ahead.
