Tigers Defeat Canes 2-1 SO

Tigers snap their 8 game winless streak. They look liked they won a 7 game series by their celebrations after winning the shootout.

Goaltenders battle tonight. Both 'Tenders played really well.

 The Teddy Bear Toss goal came courtesy of Dylan Busenius with his half court shot from center ice. The puck took a wicked hop over Ty Rimmer to tie the game 1-1.

The Tigers sure missed Jayden Hart when he was out of the lineup. He brings so much poise and makes his line-mates better.

I liked the physicality Curtis Valk showed tonight. I wish more of their forwards would finish their checks instead of taking  half-assed swipes at the puck.

Their was one shift where Ty Stanton knocked the puck out of mid-air 3 times in the same shift, I thought that was impressive.

 I was impressed with Lethbridge Overage Defenceman Daniel Johnston. He was a physical force and knocked a dozen tigers off their skates. He also made 4 rushes up the ice(including 1 in overtime) and each rush was a scoring chance.

Next Up
Brandon comes to town. Brandon has plunged in the standings and has lost 5 straight games.

Your goaltender plays well, stops two of three in the shoot out and the team breaks an 8 game winless streak because of it and the goof giving the three stars gives number one to the opposition goaltender. What a boob. Sheesh.

Absolutely dumb that Lanigan was not first star. What does the guy have to do? More shots faced, more stops in the game, SO win.... whoever the dumbass was who picked the 3 stars should be released. Open your eyes!
