4th Game in 5 nights and I thought it showed on the ice. I thought the Tigers weren't very sharp and it was a bit of a sloppy game from the Tigers perspective. I thought this was a game the Tigers could have won if they had brought a better work ethic, but they didn't deserve the 2 points tonight.
A major factor in tonight's game was the powerplay/penalty kill. The blades were 3 for 4. The Tigers were 0 for 6.
Jake Doty had another highlight reel fight this time with Saskatoon's Jessey Astles. Doty served his penalty played a shift and then wasn't seen back on the ice afterwards. The coaches mentioned on the radio that he sprained a finger and couldn't grip the stick afterwards.
I thought the rookie line showed a lot of spark
