According to the Canadian Interunversity Sport website, a Canada West attendance record was set Thursday night at the Scotiabank Saddledome.
For the very first time ever the University of Calgary Dinos played Mount Royal University Cougars at the Scotiabank Saddledome and a Canada West attendance record for hockey was set with 4,275 fans in attendance.
The previous record was 4,109 people at a game in 1971.
Despite a disappointing season in the CIS, the Cougars won the Crowchild Classic game 3-1 on two goals and an assist by Eric Galbraith. Devin Gannon scored the game winning goal for the Cougars, while Tyler Jewitt added two assists.
The Dinos meanwhile got revenge on the Cougars Friday night with a 5-1 win over Mount Royal to close out the regular season. The Dinos will now play the University of British Columbia Thunderbirds in the Canada West quarterfinals next weekend at the Father David Bauer Arena in a best-of-three.
