What a game. Linden Vey continues to dominate with Emerson Etem when they are on the ice. A 5 point game to take over the WHL scoring lead. 17 points in his last 5 games. Vey and Emerson Etem have some incredible mind-blowing chemistry together.
The Wacey Hamilton, Tyler Pitlick, Hunter Shinkaruk also continued to impress. Hunter Shinkaruk was given a ten minute misconduct for not having his mouth-guard in during play. He always has it out and is chewing on it, I guess he was given a warning and they finally nailed him on it.
I thought Reid Petryk also played real well. He sniped a shot in off the crossbar in the first period and he nicely filled in for Hunter Shinkaruk during his 10 minutes in the box.
I thought Sebastien Owuya is playing with more confidence on the ice. He is making the right plays more and more every day. I also really liked the play of Mathew Konan.
The Tigers also got their powerplay going scoring 2 powerplay goals.
I was extremely impressed when the Coaches gave powerplay time to Sebastien Owuya, Sam Dezman, Scott MacKay, Boston Leier and Reid Petryk. While They didn't score they moved the puck around so fluently they looked better than the first powerplay unit.
The Tigers mentioned on the radio that they consulted with their Goaltending coach and gave their forwards advice to shoot high on Brandon Goaltender Liam Liston and it worked pretty well. The Tigers have some pretty hard shots up front that would give any goalie trouble but Liam Liston had difficulties catching up with some of the lasers that beat him up high.
The Tigers are now off on a 6 game road trip through the incredibly powerful U.S division, and Kootenay. The Tigers will play 6 games in 8 days starting on Saturday in Everett.
