Humboldt Knocks Off Penticton In Overtime:

Penticton is 0-2 at the RBC Cup with a tough loss in OT to the host Humboldt Broncos on Sunday evening. Andrew Johnston scored with just under 5 minutes to go to give the Broncos' a 3-2 win and a 2-0 start at the tournament. Penticton will play Woodstock(love their jerseys) Tuesday at 6:30 while Humboldt will play Soo(nice uniforms, too) at 2 PM.

See below for the official Hockey Canada release!

They used a re-design of these at one point, why not modernize and stick with it?
PS- I am a jersey junkie and love to check out teams uniforms. I think Woodstock has the nicest jerseys of any I have seen in Junior A over the years! Unique, with a very sharp look. Humboldt, on the other side of things.... I'm a little disfigured as to who made up the 'HB' logo. All there is to say about that. Might as well discuss the others as well... Soo has some pretty sharp uniforms as well, the grey really gives them a nice touch; these uniforms are pretty nicely well done. Penticton, Penticton, Penticton... I can remember a time when I did like the teams jerseys, but that was when they were named the Panthers. The teams color scheme has a LOT of potential for nice jerseys, but they are 0-for-4(or 0-for-5?) since the days of the Panthers.

Hockey Canada Article:

HUMBOLDT, Sask. – Andrew Johnston scored at 4:57 of overtime, in the dying seconds of a power play, as the Humboldt Broncos handed the Penticton Vees a 3-2 defeat on Sunday night at the 2012 RBC Cup.
Johnston’s goal, which came with three seconds left in a five-minute checking from behind major handed to Penticton defenceman Kyle Beaulieu as regulation time expired, means the Broncos sit alone atop the standings after two days with an unblemished 2-0 record.
The Vees, meanwhile, dropped to 0-2; it’s the first time all season Penticton, which lost 2-1 to the Soo Thunderbirds in Saturday’s tournament opener, has been on the losing end in back-to-back games.
Matt Glowa and John Lawrence had the goals in the regulation time for Humboldt, which has started 2-0 for just the second time in five trips to the National Junior A Championship – it also won its first two games at the 1987 tournament, which the Broncos hosted.
Glowa had an eventful first 28 seconds – he opened the scoring just seven seconds after the opening face-off, poking a loose puck past Penticton netminder Michael Garteig, and received a checking from behind penalty and game misconduct just 21 ticks later.
Wade Murphy scored both goals for the Vees, which had not lost two in a row since dropping Games 2 and 3 of their Interior Conference semifinal to the Salmon Arm Silverbacks during last year’s BCHL playoffs.
Garteig finished with 40 saves, including a couple of huge stops in overtime before Johnston’s winner, while his counterpart in the Humboldt goal, Matt Hrynkiw, kept Penticton’s high-powered offence in check with 29 saves.
Both teams will enjoy an off day before returning to the Elgar Petersen Arena ice on Tuesday – Humboldt goes for a 3-0 start when it faces the Soo Thunderbirds in the matinee (3 p.m. MT), while Penticton takes on the Woodstock Slammers in the evening game (7:30 p.m. MT).
