Hitmen defeat Tigers 4-1 || Calgary leads Series 3-1

Well I thought the Tigers gave it everything they had tonight. They got a couple fortunate calls by the refs early only to have everything turned against them later in the game.

Even though the Tigers lost I was proud of their efforts. The Tigers elevated their game and I thought they played better than the previous night. When the score was 1-1 they had a few chances to take the lead but Jones made some nice saves.

The Tigers played almost the first half of the second period short-handed, and managed to kill of 3 Hitmen power-plays including a lengthy 5 on 3.

Unfortunately lady luck wasn't on the Tigers side as Sylvester would pot his 6th of the playoffs a few minutes after.(Is it just me or does every team have a Sylvester? lol).

The Tigers muscled and hustled but just couldn't blow the house down. Now the Tigers will have to come back from being down 3-1 like the Hitmen did in their first series. The Hitmen have a very good hockey club, hopefully in Game 5 the Tigers can work like they did tonight, and bring out a good fight.

I disagree with your comments. Not everyone gave their best effort. I am very disappointed in some of our older players, they just didn't seem to be able to must much energy or leadership. Very proud of guys like Frazer, Kessy, Bunz, Etem and Vey.

I agree. It is very frustrating as a fan to sit and watch some of the players give it all they have and certain others consistently play with the puck, not go into corners, not finish checks, etc. One particular player comes to mind and he needs to go!!
