Chad Labelle was scratched after making a hit yesterday, but ended up worse for wear.
Curtis Valk rang a shot off the iron, and Boston Leier just missed a backhanded attempt.
But minutes later the Tigers Strike First. James Bettauer made a nice bank pass off the boards over to Hunter Shinkaruk as the warriors were changing. Shinkaruk walked in shot the puck to the far-side, and it beat Luke Siemens
Late in the third Shinkaruk was coming out of his zone and his knees were taken out by a charging warrior...no call.
5 minutes in Shinkaruk would ring a shot off the iron.
Midway through the period Quinton Howden would score 2 quick goals. Bunz was screened from a point shot that was tipped. 1-1 TIE
The second one there was a scramble high in the slot and Dylan Bredo put the puck right on a warrior Defencemans stick. Mcfault's shot went off the backboards to James Henry who hit the post, and Quinton Howden Slapped in an easy rebound. 2-1 Warriors
The Tigers looked a little worn out in the 3rd. Bunz misplayed a high glove shot, and Eric Arnold was Johhny on the spot. 3-1 Warriors
The Tigers would get a couple chances courtesy of Brendan Hurley. Hurley had a breakaway and a 2 on 1 but both were stopped.
After that the flood gates opened as Moose Jaw would pot 3 more goals. Kenton Miller scored on a 2 on 1. Justin Kirsch scored on a one-timer from the point on a 5 on 3 powerplay. Cody Beach would scoop up a rebound and put it past Bunz.
Final 6-1 Warriors
The Tigers just aren't the same team without Etem in the lineup. The warriors Defence were able to jump up in the play and make it much harder for the Tigers to breakout of their zone. The warriors looked like they had a lot of jump throughout most of the game. It will be do or die Tuesday and Wednesday back in the hat. Hopefully Etem will be back in the lineup. Already Missing Dieno,Hart,Kessy, and Now Labelle its just too much in the playoffs missing Etem against good teams.
