Tigers Defeat Thunderbirds 6-3

Very short recap.

The first period was entertaining, some wierd goals scored. What was being hyped as a goaltenders battle turned out nothing like it. I thought Boston Leier showed a lot of hustle tonight, picked off numerous Seattle breakout passes.

Emerson Etem made up for his lack of goal scoring against Regina with 2 goals tonight. He increased his point lead to 6 points, as Brandon's Mark Stone was held pointless. Hunter Shinkaruk has vaulted to 7th with 3 points. Shinkaruk has 14 points in the last 4 games. Teams have been keying soo much on Emerson Etem and Hunter Shinaruk has no qualms about that with some extra room.

That line has scored 57% of the Tigers goals and together have scored more goals than 3 whl teams. Impressive, but also a little worrysome, regarding production from other lines.

With the win tonight the TIgers lead the whl in points with 29 but have games in hand on other teams.

The TIgers play 2 very good teams this weekend in Tri-City and Saskatoon. Both games will be Big tests.

I agree hole heartedly. Etem and Shinkaruk arent't going to keep this pace up for the whole year. Someone else needs to start chipping in on a regular basis.
