TIgers Defeat Wheaties 2-1 SO

 The Arena was a bit empty tonight. Officially it was a sellout but It looked a little over half full.

Brandon was without their top blueliner Ryan Pulock out with an upper body injury.

 Quick Summary
The Tigers Dylan Busenius scored on the powerplay with a rocket of a shot top corner to give the Tigers a 1-0 Lead late in the second period.

The lead would stick until 52 seconds left in the game with the goalie pulled, Brandon's Eric Roy would let a high shot go from the point. Amid the bodies in front, the puck beat Langhamer and forced the game into overtime. Neither team managed to score.

In the shootout Hunter Shinkaruk, and Curtis Valk beat Corbin Boes, while Elgin Pearce's shot rang iron. Nick Buonassisi had Langhamer beat but hit the post, Alessio Bertaggia scored stick side, and Jayce Hawryluk shot was stopped by Marek Langhamer's glove...and with the Victory Marek Langhamer pulled out a Teemu Selanne....throw your glove in the air and shoot it with the stick type celebration.

It was a bit of a dull game.

I thought the Tigers forwards did a real good job back-checking. The Tigers probably should have won the game outright as they developed quite a few good scoring chances in the third period, but were getting a little too fancy trying to score on perfect plays.

The Victory leapfrogs the Tigers over Saskatoon into 8th place.

The Tigers have 4 games left before the christmas break, with the only road game in Lethbridge which comes this Friday.

Again, total garbage that Langhammer was not first star. Who is the yahoo picking the stars? Both our goaltenders should have been first stars this weekend!

I would rather watch paint dry then another game like that, they really miss that spark without Labelle and Penner in the line up but it would be nice to see them upgrade a dman throw in a prospect and get a mean physical dman back there..........but how about these Tigers fans the team does good for 10 years straight and they have one bad season (every team does) and the fans bail on them. Every game the entire row behind my season tickets is empty, just pitiful to watch but not surprising

It's good too see langhamer playing with confidence! It's starting to look like the tigers have a good 1,2 punch in net

I thought Miles Koules was playing a little better this past weekend.

He is still a little hesitant getting dirty and putting himself in good position when battling the puck with other players.

Langhammer was great in net and deserved the first star! I felt bad for him that he didn't get the shutout but loved his celebration after the shootout.

Good game by Langhammer good to see him settling in. Nice to see Broadhead stirring it up. Koules and #2 are Brutal on pp defense cant get it out or keep it in. Cox has got to quit looking over his shoulder and keep on trucking full speed ahead!
