Tigers take a quick 2-0 lead. Some good work behind the net by Hunter Shinkaruk as he found Etem in front who snapped it home. 1-0 Tigers
Ten minutes later the Tigers would increase their lead as Boston Leier made a nice fake, went short side and roofed it on a 2 on 1 play. 2-0 Tigers
The Hurricanes would get on the board as Juraj Bezuch snapped one past Tyler Bunz. Bezuch snuck his way into the slot and Russell Maxwell made a perfect pass to him.
Jayden Hart was hugging the boards with the puck. Hurricane Tyler Kizuik laid a hit and Hart dropped to the ice. The replay showed Kizuik finishing his check hitting Hart in the back and Jayden's head snapped off the glass. The Lethbridge player was not penalized besides the 5 minutes for fighting after Brendan Hurley came to his defense.
The hit didn't really look that bad, however it was still clearly from behind, and I was a little surprised that their wasn't at least a minor for checking from behind.
Kale Kessy would also receive a game misconduct for presumably trying to teach the ref of his experiences with hits from behind.
Hart was taken out of the game in a stretcher...I would suspect at the very least he has a concussion.
Etem hit the post shorthanded in the opening minutes of the period.
Late in the third with the Goalie pulled Lethbridge hit the post after intercepting a pass from Matt Konan. Dylan Bredo would fire a shot down the ice off the post in an empty net attempt.
Emerson Etem would pot his 60th of the season on an empty net goal.

Tigers Clinch Home Ice
