End Of Period
Well The bronco's I thought played pretty well in the first. Aside from the first couple minutes, and last couple minutes the bronco's were all over the tigers. The tigers got a couple good breaks off of rebounds and take a 2-1 lead into the second period.

Linden Vey was hammered from the side along the boards . However the broncos will now get a penalty as Joel Rogers took a unnecessary shot at Brennan Bosch. Tigers would keep some good pressure on the bronco's with numerous shots that went wide, officially but didn't get a shot on net.
The tigers put the joey Frazer, gal and Carr line on and again the broncos manage some good chances.
Bo Montgomery caught bronco Jan Dalecky, with his head down and dangling near the blueline and looks to be in a great deal of pain. Looks to be OK as he skates off on his own power. 1:01 left in the second period. John Negrin looks frustrated as he is starting to trash talk after the play.
End Of Second Period
Well the tigers got a big breakaway goal from Zdenek Okal to put the tigers up two, and then broncos looked like they are starting to sit back a little. The tigers are doing all the simple plays, and not putting themselves out of position. The shots are 31-17 in favor of the broncos, i think that figure may be generous. Broncos are getting allot of shots but the tigers are doing a good job at clearing rebounds, and Ryan Holfeld is doing a good job at gobbling those shots up. This last period is going to be difficult to watch. The last game the tigers were up in swift, the broncos dominated period 3.
The refs have let the boys play and have only called 2 bronco penalties. No doubt the Bronco's will be throwing all they can at the tigers, lets hope they can hold the fort.
Third Period Underway. Tigers keep pressure in the broncos end, and their is a little scrum. Lots of whistle at the start. Bo Montgomery hammers another bronco at the blueline. Matt McCue hit from behind by John Negrin and the broncos are getting a penalty. McCue limped off the ice. Geordie Wudrick hammered by Thomas Kundratek, knocked his helmet off. Powerplay over.
