Tigers beat Rebels 5-1

I thought the tigers put forth the same effort they did vs Saskatoon, they got lucky with some weak play by the rebels net-minder in the first period. The young rebels lineup really only have one line that is a threat on the ice, and to boot their leading scoring was out with an injury.

It was about time that Bosch was put back on Tyler Ennis' line. Bosch has been underperforming/struggling. Prior to tonight he had only had 2 goals in his last 20 games. I am wondering if his job as "captain" is affecting his on ice performance, Or if playing with a floater(dunstall) has something to do with it.

Dunstall has been struggling pretty badly as of late as well. 1 goal in his last ten games, doesn't cut it for a 19yr old. He needs to get his ass in gear and learn to skate when he isn't in the offensive zone.

Joey Frazer has been catching my eye. He has been battling pretty hard, and his skating has improved allot. He has been an exciting player to watch, winning allot of one on one battles. He sort of reminds me of Brandon Kozun of the Hitmen, a small but powerul forward.

The Isherwood vs Cullen Morin fight was a pretty good one. It was a fairly lengthy bout and both guys got some good punches in. The linesman stepped in too early. Isherwood has been playing better defensively than he had been playing before Christmas. I could hear a roar from each bench whenever a player landed a good shot.

McCue had another bad game tonight, he is taking too many unnecessary penalties.

Game on Tuesday vs Chilliwack.
Chilliwack just suprisingly knocked of calgary!
