Tiger beat Rebels 3-1

Gonna keep it brief

A solid effort tonight by the tigers. They played pretty well for the full 60 minutes. They had one little lapse in the third period but it was just for 1 shift. They were definitely hitting waaaaay more, which was good. IT made for shaky rebel hands out there.

I couldn't help but notice the rebels goaltender Darcy Kuemper. He looked huge in net, and seemed pretty calm and always square to the shooter. He also almost scored on himself.

One thing I keep forgetting to write about is, the tigers are always standing up on the bench. They are allowed to sit during radio time outs and whistles, but during play they have to stand up. I'm not sure if it has always been like that, or if its a new thing they are trying out?

Tigers needs to shoot the puck more....allot more.

John Stampohar started showing more hustle in the later stages of the game.

Colton Grant has been the unsung hero lately. I wouldn't doubt he has won the most 1v1 battles during the last 3-5 games.

I think Ryan Holfeld is still a little shaky. Tonight he didn't know where his rebounds were. That is one thing he has to improve upon is his rebounds control. He doesn't let out the big rebounds but there are tons of small rebounds that are being left near the crease.

Edit: Oh yeah another thing. They gotta cut down on those unnecessary penalties.

Last Game of the year on saturday, sheesh that went by fast. We will have to see if Calgary will rest some players.
