Tigers deserved a better fate in this one. They put on a 2-0 lead and had multiple chances to break the game open further, including a shot off the post but Makarov was standing on his head. Cam Lanigan also played well through the first two periods.
In the third period the Tigers took some penalties and Saskatoon all of a sudden got some puck luck scoring a couple fluky goals, and a couple powerplay goals.
I thought the Tigers got quite a few good scoring chances in the game, just a frustrating ending. Saskatoon is a team the Tigers could have a good chance playing against in the first round if they make the playoffs and the Tigers showed that if that happens its not going to be an easy series.
Up Next: A struggling Prince Albert Hockey Team Wednesday Night at Home. Ever since Christmas PA has been struggling and dropping in the standings. A couple weeks ago I would have said catching them in the standings would be near impossible, but if the Tigers can win their would only be a 4 point difference between them.
