Tigers win battle of the cats

I thought the tigers started the game out pretty slow in the first period. They weren't moving their legs and the forwards were doing a poor job of not getting sticks in the passing lanes.

Fight: Travis Dunstall vs Art Bidlevski

The fight was all Bidlevski as he fed Dunstall shot after shot. The only thing that saved Dunstall was that he still had his helmet on which probably deflected a few punches.

That fight seemed to create a spark for the tigers. After that they started moving thier feet, and playing better hockey.

I thought sean ringrose had a good game for himself. He has been one of the few guys who have kept moving thier feet every game, and tonight he was rewarded with a couple goals.

I thought tristan king, Tyler Ennis, and Linden Vey, Colton Grant, Tyler Bunz also had pretty good games for themselves.
Tomas kundratek had a wobbly first period, but played much better in the last 2 periods.

I thought Thomas Carr looked comfortable back on the point. (Minus the minor bloop of punching the puck into his own net)

Cody carlson is struggling, I would like to see him get a couple games off to rebuild his confidence level. He is letting the opponents get position on him in his own end.

Travis Dunstall is one player I still dont like. I sorta wonder why he is getting so much Ice-time. He doesnt move his feet, and he only plays well when both of his linemates have really good games. He should watch game footage of himself, every time he gets the puck he starts gliding.

The tigers game took a step forward tonight, hopefully they can continue that bond and gel together out on the road next week. Lethbridge lost to Red Deer so that makes up the ground that we lost to them earlier. Brandon beat Kelowna in a shoot-out so the Tigers remain 6 points back of them.
