Catching Red Deer or PA is pretty much out of the question now. 7 points back with 7 game remaining. The Tigers would have to go undefeated to stand a chance.
On the plus side Red Deer beating Kootenay ate one of their games in hand.
Swift Current beat Calgary so they tie the Tigers with 69 points.
Swift Current has a lot of OT losses so the Tigers stay in 6th with the tiebreaker.
Lethbridge lost in overtime so the Magic Number to clinch a playoff spot is 9 points gained/ Lethbridge points lost.
Tigers have a big game against Kootenay Saturday Night. A loss would put then pretty much even with Kootenay, a point up but Kootenay would have a game in hand. A win would put them 5 points up Kootenay having a game in hand.
Kootenay is by far the least penalized team in the league.If the Tigers can play like they did in the second half of the game against Kootenay like they did during wednesday's game eventually they will crack Mackenzie Skapski.
Injury Note: Apparently Blake Penner had a skate cut during practice friday. It sounds like he will be out of the lineup for a while.
