Tigers @ Kamloops

I will only be able to recap one period... WOWZERS I've missed 2 periods all year and the tigers go and score 10 goals.

Matt Konan Is Dressed
Josh Koper is Dressed
Cody Carlson scratched for a second straight game.
COle Grbavac was also scratched (A stipulation of the trade perhaps?)
First Period
Score 4-2 Blazers

Blazer Goals
1.Created off a bad pass, a gift pass to the middle of the ice. Either Isherwood or Businius was hit in the corner and tapped the puck into the middle of the ice.

2. Jace Coyle didn't cover his man in front, and allowing a cross ice onetimed shot, to easily beat Bunz

3. On the PP a mad Scramble in front Tigers had 3 guys in front of the net but couldn't control a bouncing puck as it landed at the side of the net with Bunz on his knees, and Blazer Shayne Wiebe would pot his second of the game.

4. Blazer Brendan Ranford Would Undress Trison King from the half wall. He would shoot at the same Time Bretton Cameron would try to knock the puck away. The pucked ended up dribbling toward the goal and would Suprise Bunz who went down early.

Tiger Goals
1. On the Powerplay Jace Coyle would wrist a shot in at the point. Wacey Hamilton was screening the goalie and he didnt see the puck.

2. On the PP Matt Konan would get the puck off a faceoff and blast it at the net. It would hit a Blazer in front and Beat Leclerc 5 hole.

The tigers had alot of good chances in the first period. However Justin Leclerc played well and stood his ground. I thought the Tigers are playing hard but their making the same kind of Defensive Mistakes in their own zone. Blazers look like they have a pretty quick transition game.

So I was busy having turkey with some relatives today, and couldn't believe my eyes when I saw a 12 on the scoreboard. I thought my uncle was kidding when he said the tigers won 12-5. Based on they way they have been coming back I was thinking they would be in for a comeback but I didn't expect a 10 goal outburst.

DID the Tigers miss Mathew Konan??
Well he was only a +7 in the game. I'm not sure whats more impressive that or Emerson Etem's 4 goals. Emerson was absolutely crunched near the Blueline in the first period, I guess he wanted some payback. Out of the 12 goals 8 of them were even strength, with 2 shorthanded.

I'm looking forward to watching some of the highlights, and reading some of the fan reactions as to what exactly happened.

Since you could only recap the 1st period, I think you're in for a surprise when you see the final score!!!

the Tigs need to figure out how to keep it out of their own net. Hopefully Bunz grabs some confidence after giving up 4 in the first and then shutting the door in the last two periods. Most people including myself thought the team would have trouble scoring goals this year but so far that's not the case. Near the lead in both goals for and against and I'm sure Willie won't be happy with the latter.

off topic but would anyone know the tigers warm up songs?

I never get their early enough for the warm-up. So maybe someone else knows?

Maybe ask the question on the Tigers Roarrs and purrs message board.
