Playoff Positioning

Kootenay Lost tonight which means they CANNOT pass the tigers in the standings.
Any tiger point, or lethbridge loss of a point and the tigers clinch 5th.

Another Note: Saskatoon lost in overtime to P.A. That implicates that Saskatoon will finish 2nd. So the Brandon, and Swift remains the only teams that are possible first round matchups for the tigers.

Game Tomorow
I don't see Calgary resting any players in the game tomorrow. Calgary will need to win both games to earn the regular season title. Lets see how a moderately healthy tiger team can play against the best team in the chl.

Last time these two teams met at the arena the tigers played fairly hard, but the Hitmen kept snipping perfect shots off the post and in. Calgary's broke the game apart in the second after the tigers tied the game 3-3, and crused to an 8-4 win.

As of March 10th, the WHL lists Bretton Cameron and Tristan King as out for 1-2 weeks.
The news reported Tristan King was a game time decision last game, but did not take the re-game warmup

Like I mentioned on the tigers message board

Sean Ringrose
Brennan Bosch
Mark Isherwood
Colton grant
Jayce Coyle

If they play tomorrow they will all have played in a full 72 game season.

With this injury plagued season i find it incredible that this will be the most players playing in a full season since at least 96-97.

*The whl stats on their site only goes to year 1996-1997 so I don't know if this is the most ever, or a previous year has them beat.
