The Tigers came out with a huge first period. 4 First period goals in route to a 5-2 victory.
I thought the Tigers did an excellent job with getting the puck out of their zone on the first try, and creating offense from it.
They chased Andrey Makarov from the net after the first period.
The blades looked to switch up their attack in the second period and scored a couple goals but the Tigers made a small adjustment and continued to get chances. In the second period the blades looked to be playing desperate hockey however looked a little spent in the third period.
Josh Nicholls of the blades is probably likely to be suspended for game 4. He gave Shinkaruk a 2 handed slash to the back of the leg after the game ended. He was given a 5 minute major and game misconduct. If the blades go out in four that could carry over to the memorial cup.
Tigers will go for the series clincher tomorrow night!
The arena was a couple hundred fans short of a sellout.
