Well I thought tonight the better team lost, and I think that is a really good sign considering Kelowna is rated the #1 team in Canada.
The Tigers got more prime scoring chances than the rockets. They buried a couple but were still a bit snake-bitten around the net. Marek Langhamer in his first game back had an up and down night stopping a couple really good shots, but let in 2 weak goals that he knows he should have had.
I thought the Tigers could have used a timely powerplay goal. They have fallen to 19th overall on the PP.
Their were 2 firsts tonight. Newcomer Anthony Ast scored a goal on his first shot on net, making it his first goal as a Tigers. Kyle Becker got into his first WHL fight against rocket Carter Rigby who got the better of Becker is a very short fight.
I thought a lot of guys played really well tonight, except I thought Tommy Vannelli played like he was tired.
The Tigers built a 3-0 Lead after one period, but let off the gas, and let Kelowna back into the game. Kelowna scored 5 straight goals until the Tigers scored their 4th and were pressuring very heavily as the game ended.
