The Tigers defeated PA 2-1 in OT. Lethbridge got hammered 9-0 by Calgary.
The Tigers will start the playoffs on the road.
Marek Langhamer stopped 37 of 38 PA shots for his 5th win in a row and his 8th win in 9 games.
Hunter Shinkaruk was the overtime hero. According to the WHL site the Tigers failed to get a shot in the third period.
Even though the Tigers won, PA still got a point. To catch them in the standings for a shot at the Rebels in Round 1 the Tigers will have to go undefeated and hope PA only gets 2 of their last 6 points. So its a longshot.
The Tigers have the Tiebreaker over Swift Current. Kootenay has the Tiebreaker over the Tigers.
Kootenay lost tonight so it opens up a 5 point gap, Kootenay with a game in hand. Combo of 4 points gained/Kootenay points lost secures at least a 7th place finish.
The Broncos have 2 games against Regina left. The Tigers face Calgary, and Lethbridge twice.
Kootenay faces Lethbridge twice and Calgary Twice.
The Tigers still control their own fate because if they win out with 3 games left they will face Calgary (outside shot at Red Deer)
