Short Recap, Weeknight.
Silvertips had a flu ravaged dressing room, they had 4 regulars scratched.
Tigers had very strong jump right from the get-go, and never let up. Everett was keeping a very close eye on Etem, but he still managed to get 5 points. Shinkaruk was hanging on the puck a little too long in the first period, but managed to score 3 in the third period + 3 assists.
New Tiger James Bettauer scored a howitzer from the point on the powerplay, hes got a cannon back there.
It was nice to see Rhyse Deino step up for Patrik Parkkonen when Parkkonen was hit from behind into the boards.
The young guys got a little more ice-time and even some powerplay time with the score well in hand. The silvertips were getting frustrated and things started getting rough later in the game. If the fights pop up on hockeyfights I'll post them here tomorow.
THe Tigers will play two games this weekend in Brandon and Regina. Regina beat the TIgers in an earlier matchup at home, and the Game between Brandon 2 weeks ago was a very high spirited/emotional game. SO this weekend will be a good gauge on how they have improved entering the second month of the season.
Adam Rehak has left the team to take care of family/personal issues back home. It is unknown how long he will be gone for.
