HUGE 8-3 Win over Lethbridge

Tonight was the most exiting games to watch all year. IF you missed this game it sucks to be you.

The tigers were very shorthanded tonight.

Out with Injuries were: Bo Montgomery, Cody Carlson, Tristan King, Bretton Cameron, Wacey Hamilton, Joey Frazer, John Stampohar.
7 regulars out, the tigers had 2 call-ups and still handed Lethbridge their lunch.

I thought Lethbridge's goaltending was their downfall. They didn't make the big saves when they needed to. The tigers forwards did an awesome job of crashing the net.

TO be honest whoever reffed the game tonight was in for a very tough job.
However I thought the reffing was a big reason why the game got so out of hand. Kirk and the other ref were calling every single borderline penalty, which resulted in everyone including the fans being frustrated.

I thought Brennan Bosch, Tyler Ennis, Thomas Kundratek,Tyler Bunz, Sean Ringrose really stepped their games up a notch. They were just outstanding this weekend.

The tigers showed a lot of guts tonight.
Zdenek Okal who is 5'9 challeneged Mitch Versteeg who is 6'2
The new guy Mike Forsyth challenged ashton Carter from Lethbridge.
THomas Kundratek didnt like a high elbow hit by Mitch Versteeg and challeneged versteeg to a fight. It was all Versteeg early but Kundratek kept throwing punches and dropped a bomb which buckled versteeg's knees.
McCue handily beat Lucas Sbisa, and Kyle Beach.

Kyle Beach jumped Brennan Bosch in the third period,which started a line brawl. The tigers ended up with a 5:00 5-3.

Tyler Ennis is probably a front runner for player of the week with 5 goals and 7 points in 2 games!

More good News is that Swift Current Lost tonight which gives the tigers a 3 point lead for 4th place.
