A Few Observations
Leadership seems to be coming from the Coaches. A perfectly placed Timeout after two quick Blades goals got the Tigers out of their funk and they recovered from a 3-1 deficit.
I thought Chad Butcher had a helluva game, and I like the Improvement that Matt Staples is showing. Scott Allan was dressed for his second game but didn't see very much ice-time.....Spenser Jensen was scratched.
It was good to see Curtis Valk Scoring. I feel like he is not playing up to standards compared to last season. He doesn't have that oomf in his game......and a guy like him should be leading the charge every night. Even though he has 17 points in 13 games I feel he is capable of more.
Back into the lineup after missing quite a few games with an injury. I feel like he was missed back there. He can slow the game down, and knows how to get shots on net on the powerplay.
Was scratched for his "Lower body" day to day injury...
Overall I liked that they got back on track with a win.
In Prince Albert Tuesday, and a rematch with Saskatoon on Wednesday.
Lipsbergs wins it for Seattle
