2 Big Road Wins

3-2 Overtime victory over Swift Current.
4-2 Victory over Calgary.

Both wins come on the road, both games Ryan Holfeld was named the third star, and both games were very tough wins. Didn't listen to the radio, but from the looks of things the tigers defensive play managed to hold off a surging bronco team in the third period. The tigers let another shorthanded goal in against calgary. Jerrid Sauer looked like he stepped it up, scoring a goal adding 2 assists with being named the games first star, in calgary.

Unfortunately the Kootenay Ice also won both their games so we remain 2 points behind them in 5th with 2 games in hand. Lethbridge managed to gain 2 points out of 4 on the weekend so we creep up to 4 points behind them, with lethbridge having 1 game in hand. Brandon split their weekend games, and fall to 3 points back. Moose jaw took 3 out of 4 points on the weekend and fall to 5 points back with 1 game in hand.

Next UP:
Red Deer @ Medicine Hat

Red Deer managed to take 3 points out of 4 (win and shootout loss) vs Lethbridge without Brandon Sutter,(flu) and Landon Ferraro(ribs), in their second game.

Medicine Hat is 4-0 vs red deer in the season series, but history has shown their no easy team to defeat late in the season.
