Tigers Defeat Lethbridge Without Vey and Hamilton

In tonight's game against Lethbridge, Wacey Hamilton, and Linden Vey sat out, along with Cole Grbavac, Tyler Pitlick, Scott Ramsay, and Sam Dezman.

Despite Having a huge chunk of offense of the lineup, the Tigers came away with a big 5-1 win over the Lethbridge Hurricanes. Ridley mentioned that the whole team played really well again.

I'm assuming the Vey/Hamilton thing was just giving them some healing time for bumps and bruises. As Vey looked pretty good scoring that overtime winner to end the game last night. I noticed Wacey Hamilton took a weird hit in second period against Red Deer and it seemed to slightly affect him, Although he did play the rest of the game so hopefully its nothing too serious.

Edit: Linden Vey has the flu, and Wacey Hamilton has an Upper Body Injury

Ridley mentioned that Cole Grbavac should be good to go for Tuesday's game against the Kootenay Ice. Dezman is out for the year, and it sounds like Scott Ramsay may be out for an extended time period as well, its unknown if he will be able to recover in time to help for the playoff run.

Scoreboard Watching
Unfortunately Red Deer defeated the Broncos to keep 2 points up on the Tigers. Rebels play Calgary tomorrow for their 3rd game in 3 nights.

The Tigers need a combination of 1 Tiger victory or 1 Kootenay loss to clinch at least third place.

Edmonton lost, and Brandon won tonight, Giving Brandon a 3 point cushion on 6th place, however Edmonton has a game in hand.
