Weeknight short recap.
The Tigers had one of those games where nothing seemed to click. It was almost comical at times when they would develop a good chance and then pucks would stick to the ice, hop over sticks, or just plain missread good passes and made bad decisions. 4 Days off and a full moon, its a little weird that the Tigers have a better record on the road this year, as in years past they have been dominant at home.
The Ice played really well in the first two periods and then the Tigers started coming back in the third but things still weren't 100% clicking right. The Tigers got on the board late in the third when Emerson Received a cross ice feed and elimated Nathan Lieuwen's shutout bid with Bunz pulled and an extra attacker on the ice.
The Tigers had one glorious chance where I dont know how they didn't manage to score on. They shot the puck inches wide through the crease, then another tiger picked the puck up and shot it inches wide through the crease again when Lieuwen was down scrambling....one of those games.
Tigers play Kootenay on Friday down in Cranbrook. With the loss tonight calgary remains just 2 points back, and Kootenay is 5 points back.
