Kootenay Defeat Tigers 3-0

The Ice take a 2-0 Series Lead.

Well the Ice Dismantled the Tigers tonight, left right and center.

The refs put their whistles in their pockets for most of the game and it really frustrated the hell out of the Tigers. Their was a ton of interference being thrown by both teams.

The Tigers will have to go back to the drawing board and change their systems up. Having Cole Grbavac out of the lineup was a big blow as he was suspended 1 game for his hit on Steele Boomer.

In game 3 The Tigers will need to cut out all this retaliation stuff, and find away to generate more offense. Interestingly enough the Tigers were in this exact same position last year before winning 4 straight games to take the series.

Game 3 is in Cranbrook on Tuesday.

News flash. The Tigers have played 72 regular season games and now 13 playoff games with the same systems in place for all of them. Don't think there going to change it up now.

I disagree, hearing it from the players themselves how they changed their systems up during the Brandon series.

It was pretty obvious during tonight's game they went back to the fire it up the boards approach which didn't work out all that well.

It will be very hard for the Tigers to comeback, but its still possible. They will have to play an incredibly smart game.

From what I saw tonight Kootenay played an nhl like game with their systems. The only thing that beats prefect systems is smarts and skill.

The Tigers have the skill but do they have the smarts?

Let's not forget, this has been a tremendous season already. These boys have had a great year. Anything from here on in, is a hell of a bonus.
