I thought it was a game where the Tigers could have won if the bounces went their way. A few players had off nights. It also seemed like their was a lack of emotion on the ice tonight from both sides.
I thought the tigers top line of Hamilton and Vey couldn't get anything going. Chipping pucks a little too short and just couldn't get the timing down right.
I thought Tristan King's teammates set him up beautifully 3 times, to no avail. The one play was frustrating to watch I'm not sure why he choose to kick the puck up to his stick instead of doing a little one timer with an open net.
I thought Tomas Kundratek had a horrible game. I think his play has been slipping. On Spokane's first goal he did one of those half pinches where he doesn't fully commit but moves up then a quick pass and the other team has an odd man rush. Then for some reason he decides to throw a hit on Spokane's defenceman all the way up at the blueline, taking him out of the play a second time. His poor decisions led to about 3 odd man rushes for Spokane, and they scored on 2 of them.
Tyler Bunz also had an off night. 2 of the 3 goals he let in were of the weaker variety.
On the positive Note Emerson Etem had a really good game. I saw good things from Cole Grbavac, and Joey Frazer played well. I also thought Mark Isherwood has played well lately.
The tigers also cracked the CHL Top 10, placing at number 9 this week.
