Just a couple Notes:
Devan Dubyk looked unbeatable until a shot hit him in the mask. He seemed a little shaky afterward and let in 2 goals he would have normally stopped. He stopped a 2on1 and a 3on1 in the first period to keep it a tie game.
Reid Petryk played his first game in three weeks(healthy scratch). He had a couple shifts on the 4th line then was benched after a giveaway....sorta wondering sometimes why that benching rule only applies to 16 year olds. Ha!
I thought Emerson Etem had more jump in his game tonight.
The players that stood out tonight for me were Kundratek
(minus the 1st period pinch),
Zdenik Okal(because he got alot of clear shots on net that produced rebounds), Emerson Etem (had more hustle to his game and almost scored a couple.
I thought Matt MacKay had a slightly better game, Taylor Gal had a real good first period, and Tyler Bunz handled the water bottles like a pro....just kidding on that last one.
Red Deer lost, the Tigers are now tied for 5th, Red Deer with a game in hand.
I still think the Tigers aren't playing up to snuff.
I think once the playoffs come around though you will see a more aggressive team. As to who their opponent will be probably wont be decided until the last couple games.
Calgary Hitmen Vs Swift Current Broncos
They are on sportsnet tonight at 7:000 PM mountain.
The Hitman have locked up the central division and are guarenteed at least a 2nd seed in the first round. However they are still competing to win the regualr season title.
The broncos are competing to stay in the lst playoff spot, they are 5 points up on Prince ALbert with 6 games remaining. It is possible that this game is a potential first round playoff preview. Although that could very esily change.
