Big game vs Brandon Tonight

With swift Current Losing yesterday to brandon 4-2, It gives the tigers a chance to increase their breathing room with a victory.The tigers take on a dangerous Brandon team tonight at the Arena 7:00 PM gametime.

Lat night Brandon stormed out to a 3-0 lead vs Swift in the first period, then put it on cruise control. Brandon managed to hold onto a late surge from the broncos, even killing of a late game 5-3.

Brandon has 6 forwards who are scoring at over 1ppg rate, the tigers only have 1 player.

The tigers will really need to play sound defensively and make sure that at least 1 if not 2 forwards help out on the back-check. Brandon can and will roll all four lines. The tigers will need big contributions again from the 3rd and 4th lines like they played last game.
