Tigers Pound Broncos 7-2

Very good game by the Tigers tonight. They controlled the game from the get go. They fired 20 shots in the first period and Bronco's goaltender Mark Friesen stood on his head in the first period. Their only negative was that their powerplay was 0/8.

The Broncos I thought looked very flat, there wasn't any push-back in the second period, and they couldn't maintain any sustained pressure. They had an off night.

I thought the Tigers defense did a better job at head-manning the puck, making good crisp sharp passes.

Cole Grbavac won a very one-sided fight against Jordan Peddle after Peddle took offense to Grbavac crashing the crease.

Linden Vey is on an absolute tear. 11 points +12 in his last 3 Whl games. He had another 4 point night tonight.

I didn't see Vahe Zakaryan on the ice late in the game. He took an awkward hit in the first period, so I assume he suffered an injury.

The broncos Stepan Novotny left the game and did not return after crashing into the goal trying to stop Linden Vey's hat-trick goal.

Bronco Defender Joel Rogers didn't see ice time in the third period.

Hunter Shinkaruk. This guy has improved tenfold since the start of the season. He was born in October so his draft year isn't until he reaches 18. Including this year he has 3 seasons to hone his game before the NHL draft. To say he will be a future 1st round NHL draft pick is very premature but he is something special to watch.

Hopefully the Tigers can keep this momentum going against the P.A Raiders Sunday. P.A was hammered tonight 6-1 by Kootenay.

I found a blog called Mayors Manor that Interviewed Linden Vey after the games against Russia. They talk about his games in the Super series, his expectations with medicine hat and other kings prospects he has played against. Interesting read check it out.
