An Up and down game from the Tigers....They had the rebels on the ropes, and at the end of the second period it looked like the rebels were gassed with a 5-2 Tiger Lead.
The rebels managed to score a couple goals to make it close, but the Tigers prevailed.
The rebels played their backup goaltender Bolton Pouliot and he had an up and down game letting in a couple weaker goals including the first shot of the game, but he also made a number of highlight real saves in the second and third periods.
I was impressed with Rebels 16 year old Connor Bleakly he had 2 goals and was thorn in the side making a number of solid body-checks.
For the Tigers Curtis Valk inched closer to the whl goal scoring lead with a hat-trick and is only 3 goals off the goal scoring leader Brendan Leipsic from portland.
I thought Zach Hodder had another good game and has stepped up his game up a notch.
The win puts the Tigers within 3 points of PA, and 5 points of Red Deer
With Lethbridge losing tonight the magic number to clinch a playoff spot is now a combo of 10 Tiger points or Lethbridge loss of points.
