Hitmen Defeat Tigers 2-0

The Tigers just couldn't get anything past Martin Jones, he is playing like a brick wall that absorbs every puck thrown at him.

The Tigers outshot Calgary 11-2 in the third period, but Jones made every stop look routine. It looks like the Tigers used all their goals up beating up on Edmonton and Prince Geeorge last week.

With the loss tonight it puts the Tigers 2 points behind calgary, and Calgary has 4 games in hand.

If Calgary keeps up their .685 winning percentage the Tigers would have to go undefeated to close the season to catch and pass them. It basically means that the Tigers chance of winning the division is now very faint. (We can Hope that Calgary goes on a losing streak)

It now looks like its more of a question of trying to take Home Ice Advantage from kootenay. Kootenay is essentially just 2.5 games in front of the Tigers, and the Tigers still get to play them 3 times.
