Tigers had a bit of a rough start but I thought Marek Langhamer made a couple really good saves and If it wasn't for his early stops the Tigers could have been down a few quick goals early. I also thought Langhamer showed a lot more confidence playing the puck behind his net.
Jayden Hart was back after his unknown illness and looked really good scoring a pair of goals.
I thought his line of Boston Leier, and Jake Doty played really well together. Doty scored his first goal as a Tiger and also just missed an open net chance.
Boson Leier also had a helluva game with 4 assists on the night. He is finding his game like he did at the end of last season.
The Tigers put Kyle Becker back on the first PP unit and whaddya know their powerplay scored 2 goals, including a goal by Becker. Becker didn't have his best game tonight but as of right now I think he should be a staple on the first PP unit until proven otherwise.
Chad Butcher also scored his first goal as a Tiger.
Elgin Pearce had a 2 point night and is looking like a very good pickup. Getting him for a 5th rounder will make up for the deal when the Tigers gave up a 3rd for Hurley.
I thought PG's forwards got caught up in the rush way too often and their goal-tending wasn't very good. They fumbled the puck around lots and it just wasn't their night.
With the big lead by the second period the Tigers were able to give a lot of ice time to the 4th line, and that should help out fatigue-wise as tomorrow is their 4th game in 5 nights.
