The Tigers kept it pretty close through two periods. I think the Hitmen hit 4-5 posts in the game, and the score flattered the Tigers as the third period was pretty ugly, but through 2 periods it was a pretty close game.
The Hitmen's 2nd goal to tie the game was a back-breaker. Boston Leier tripped himself up and in a panic tried to launch the puck out of the zone. With seconds left in the second period a floating point shot was tipped in.
In the third period the Hitmen made a few adjustments, created a lot of turnovers and their were dozens of odd man rushes down low.
Even though the Hitmen dominated the third the Tigers had a couple opportunities to tie the game.
Next Game: Friday Night in Moose Jaw, Saturday night back home.
