I thought the Tigers played really well tonight. I thought the Tigers out-played the Oil Kings for the last two periods, they just couldn't bury those chances, and Laurent Brossoit shut the door. Shinkaruk looked liked he was trying to force that 50 goal mark taking quite a few shots on goal himself.
Kootenay had a 4-0 lead and a 5-3 lead with a minute left in the game. Calgary scored 2 goals in the last minute to tie Kootenay. Calgary then won the game in overtime. With the Tigers loss it means the two teams are now tied. Calgary holds the Tiebreaker in wins, which means the Tigers slip down to 4th, and need to 1 more point than Calgary in the final game to overtake them.
With 1 game left in the season the possible first round playoff match-ups are still clear as mud. The Tigers could still end up playing Saskatoon, Kootenay, Regina.
The Tigers cannot play Brandon anymore as Brandon can only tie Saskatoon and Saskatoon has more wins.
If Brandon defeats Regina in extra time and Calgary defeats Kootenay in extra time, with a Saskatoon loss their would be a 4 way tie for 5th place.
Tigers play Lethbridge
Calgary plays Kootenay
Saskatoon plays Swift Current
Brandon plays Regina
