Tigers Take 2-0 Series Lead


Again the Tigers weathered a Red Deer Storm in the first period. They Took a 1-0 lead through the first period despite getting outshot 12-4. Apparently the Tigers first goal was offside according to the rebel broadcasters.

The Tigers then scored 3 goals in the second period, including 2 more power-play goals to take a commanding 4-0 lead into the third period. The Tigers would add one more in the third period and Tyler Bunz would get his first playoff shutout, for a 5-0 Final

The Rebels broadcaster were saying they felt that the Rebels looked like they lost their confidence, after trying so hard at the beginning yet finding themselves down a couple goals.

Special Teams have been dynamite for the Tigers in the first 2 games. You can bet the Rebels will be working on that heavily in their practices sessions.

Take some Advil with you to the rink on Tuesday and Wednesday because the Arena is going to be louder than a rock concert!

Game 3 is on Tuesday at the Arena!

Looked back at all the games between the Rebels and Tigers this year and Nugent-Hopkins doesn't have an even strength point against us all year. He hasfive assists all on the pp.

Got to give the Tigers Defense credit as well. The offense has obviously been great, but many questions were asked about the defense after round 1 and they have responded well. Also, many tigers fans have been hard on Coyle this year but after watching the last 4 or 5 games in the playoffs I have to say he is playing the best hockey I have seen him play. Keep it up boys
