Tigers Defeat Pats 6-4

I really liked the line combo's used tonight. The Tigers finally found a good flow to go with. They were able to pen the Pats in their end for a good chunk of the game and took pressure off the Tigers defense. Their offensive gameplay has turned a corner.

3 in 3
With their 3rd game in 3 nights, the Tigers showed up tonight with some very good energy. Everyone was moving their legs and skating.

Tigers defense is banged up a bit. Jace Coyle was not 100% as you could tell by his skating and Ridley mentioned it on the radio. They also said Matt Konan was out after blocking a shot in Moose Jaw yesterday. Their pk and defense will be glad for the week off to get back on track. It is still a work in progress.

Linden Vey
Linden Vey lead the way with a 4 point night. He has been so good lately the opposition's top lines are having trouble keeping him off the scoresheet. He is averaging 2 points a game in the month of November, and has vaulted up to 3rd in the WHL scoring race with games in hand on everyone.

Strictly offensively speaking 20 year old Thomas Frazee, 16 year old Chandler Stephenson and 18 year old Jordan Weal caught my eye for the pats. Frazee the former Tigers looked very big and had a real quick snapshot. Stephenson had a pretty quick set of wheels and Jordan Weal looked incredible quick. Weal could dart one way or another lightning quick and for a small guy he had a pitbullish demeanor. Although Weal looked frustrated during parts of the game.
