Bretton Cameron was scratched due to injury I assume. Although I heard rumours about a flu grasping hold on a couple players.
I thought Tyler Bunz had a strong game tonight earning his second shutout. He looked real confident out there. His body language gave the impression that he wasn't letting anything past him even more so towards the end of the game.
The Warriors had their chances but couldn't capitalize. The warriors had the Tigers on the ropes at times, however I thought the Tigers defenders were doing an excellent job at whacking away rebounds and tieing guys up.
The Tigers defenseman stepped up at key opportunities to score some timely goals. 3 of the 4 Tiger goals were scored by tigers D-MEN.
I thought that Taylor Gal, and Matt MacKay have struggled as of late. They need to pick up their game to provide that depth the Tigers boasted earlier in the season
I thought the Warriors were really throwing their weight around especially in the second period. Kale Kessey took notice and laid out a Moster hit on a warrior defender and then a fight with Dylan McIlrath.
I thought the Tigers played slightly above average overall. They played a very solid first period. I thought the Warriors won the second period and had about 3-4 prime scoring chances in the third period.
The next 2 Tiger Home Games are against the Ice. You could say this is a do or die for Home Ice. A pair of tiger wins against Kootenay would put them 1 point back with the Ice holding 1 game in hand.
The tigers might as well pretend that this is game 6 with kootenay having a 3-2 series lead. Because its a fight for home ice and the Tigers might very well be in this position later down the road.
