Tigers Snap Winless Streak

Tigers Defeat P.A 6-1. A win they needed badly after a 5 game winless skid.

Interestingly enough Emerson Etem was held without a goal for each game that the Tigers lost during thier winless streak. One positive to come out of this was that 4 of the 5 loses were 1 goal games(minus the empty netters)., 2 of them were in Shootouts.

During the last two games the Tigers were really experimenting with thier line comboz on both Offense and Defense. They split up the Bettauer/Busenius combo and Lewington and Jensen received lots of ice time, and Scott Mckay saw the odd shift on the point. Patrik Parkkonen was scratched Wednesday Night. Not sure if he is injured or a healthy scratch.

The forwards were juggled throughout the P.A game and saw some juggling during the saskatoon game.

Curtis Valk has been on fire lately scoring 7 goals in his last 7 games. Shinkaruk also has 4 goals in his last 4 games. Rhyse Dieno scored his first ever whl goal against Saskatoon.

CHL Top Ten
Tigers were dropped from the honorable mention spot, but thats not suprising.

The Tigers still have 2 tough Road Battles against Edmonton and Red Deer this weekend before they take on a struggling Lethbridge Hurricane Team at home on November 30th.
