Big 6-3 Win in Lethbridge

I listened to the Hurricanes broadcaster, and they had a former whl official as the color commentator.

Tyler Bunz started in goal for the tigers.
From what i gathered the tigers came out pretty slowly with the hurricanes hemming them in their own zone the majority of the first period.

After that it was all tigers. The canes broadcasters mentioned that the tigers were doing something different in terms of their systems play and the tigers took the game over.

Their was NO fight between Matt McCue and Dwight King. I'm hoping they saved it for the game tonight!!

McCue laid a borderline bonecrunching hit on Lucas Sbisa late in the third in retaliation for Sbisa's helmet popping hit he laid on Tyler Ennis earlier in the game.

Lethbridge Fans were Booing McCue everytime he touched the puck.

It was a much needed victory for the tigers as they create a 6pt gap between them and lethbridge. Swift Current beat Kootenay, so the tigers remain only 1pt ahead for the 4th playoff spot.

Both teams had key guys out with injuries
Lethbridge: Juha Metsola, Benn Wright
Tigers: Bo Montomgery, Wacey Hamilton, Bretton Cameron, John Stampohar, Joey Frazer, Tristan King

Tomorrow night is a pivitol night for Lethbridge's Home Ice playoff Push. A Canes loss would means they would be 8 points back with only 10 games left for them to catch up.
