Tigers Defeat P.G 4-1

The game on the webcast was a slideshow so I didnt watch much of it.

Hunter Shinkaruk capped an empty netter for his hat-trick scoring his 43rd,44th, and 45th goals of the season. Brendan Hurley scored his 2nd as a Tiger giving the Tigers a 2-1 lead at that point.

The same callups Blake Penner, Chad Butcher and Kyle Becker all played again.

Playoff Spot Clinched
With the win tonight the Tigers officially clinched a playoff spot.

Scoreboard Watching
Kootenay lost to Edmonton, Regina lost to Red Deer. Calgary squeaked by the Broncos

Calgary remains 4 points back with a game in hand. Kootenay has dropped to 9 points back with a game in hand.

The Tigers travel to Vancouver for a game friday and then face Kootenay for a Home and Home which could be huge in deciding Home Ice Advantage.

Interesting tha Blake Penner was in the lineup for both games. Thought he was going to school and playing hockey in Ottawa.
