Former Tiger Player Micheal Sauer played in his first and second NHL games this week.
He was called up and played against Minnesota on Tuesday and against Atlanta last night.
On tuesday he recorded 13:33 minutes of ice time with 1 shot, 1 blocked shots, 2 shots that missed the net, and 1 hit. The rangers won 2-1
On wednesday He recorded 12:33 minutes of ice time, with a +1 rating, 1 shot and one hit, with 1 minute of powerplay time. Atlanta won 5-4.
That makes 6 players and counting on the tigers 06-07 roster than went on to play at least 1 games in the nhl.(Keetley, Helm, Schlemko, Sauer, Russel, Dorsett).
Tonight Is game 5 in swift Current...Whoever wins has 2 chances at putting away the other team. I will be here watching on the webcast posting updates along the way.
Matt McCue was suspended 2 games for his Hit ON Bronco Eric Doyle. Bronco fans are saying Doyle is out for the series with a concussion.
That is a pretty big blow to the tigers defense, McCue was eating up quite a chunk of icetime. The tigers will NEED Exceptional efforts from all defenders. I'm Not sure if Cody Carlson is 100% healthy and ready to go. The News has listed him as a healthy scratch, but I remember him being injured prior to the playoffs and when he was healthy getting a regular spot in the lineup.....although I could be wrong
You know the broncos are going to come out flying. Their building is pretty loud and full of energy when they get that siren, music and crowd noise into the game. The tigers will need thier forwards to help out any way they can on the back-end, and make the bronco's pay when they try to get fancy.
