Tigers 5 game winning streak comes to an end
The canes were really fired up at the beginning of the hockey game. They oushot the Tigers by a wide margin early and had sustained periods of pressure in the Tigers end.
The canes scored 2 goals in the last 2 minutes of the first period, as well as 2 goals in the first 5 minutes of the second period to chase Cam Lanigan from the net.
1st goal was a deflected in off the post.
2nd goal Lanigan made a nice save from the high circle, but a pinching Rylan Pilon put the rebound in over a diving Lanigan. PP Goal
3rd Goal was a quick passing play behind the boards out in front.
4th Canes goal was a wider angle shot that Cam left a big rebound right to a Hurricanes player.
After Lanigan was pulled the Tigers started playing a little better. Shinkaruk had a blast from the high slot, and Trevor Cox tipped a point shot by Kyle Becker.
The canes sealed the win with an empty netter after Derek Ryckam bobbled the puck coming out of his own end.
Tigers couldn't fully match the intensity of the Hurricanes at the start of the game. They gave up a couple big rebounds which the canes capitalized on. Canes outshot the Tigers by a wide margin.
The Tigers had a handful of chances, Rimmer shut the door when he needed to.
For once it didn't seem like this game was as chippy as in games past between the two teams.
