My girlfriend and I are taking a few days of vacation this week, thanks to light work schedules and no home games this weekend. As a result, the blog and the new Twitter will remain in stasis for the next few days, but I'll be back Friday to set up a pivotal matchup between the Rebels and the Osoyoos Coyotes.
Bits & Bites: One of the Coyotes' top scorers, Brandon Watson, has been suspended for one game (misconduct rule). He will be eligible to play Friday, though. Taking a peek at Grand Forks' roster, I note with interest that forward Brett Basnett has been placed on reserve. Basnett had 8 points (2-6) in 20 games with the Border Bruins, after attending camp here in Castlegar.
