GAME SUMMARY

 

The Tigers and the Pats renewed their rivalry on Saturday night in Medicine Hat. Last season the Tigers struggled against the Pats going 1-2-1-0 including dropping both on home ice. The Tigers came out prepared and made a statement winning 5-1 in the first meeting between the two clubs this season.

 

The Pats got things started in the second period with Lane Scheidl scoring his second goal of the season only 4:05 into the frame. It took until the end of the period but Kyle Becker responded with his first WHL goal on the power play coming off passes from Tyler Lewington and Boston Leier. The goal sent the teams to their locker rooms all tied up at one a piece.


In the final period the Tigers came out and took control of the game scoring four times. Curtis Valk scored his first of two on the night on 45 seconds in on the power play. Miles Koules followed up with another power play goal at the 6:01 mark. After assisting on both of the previous goals, Hunter Shinkaruk decided to get a goal of his own. Shinkaruk scored his second of the season unassisted to give the Tigers a comfortable three goal lead. Only 37 seconds later, Curtis Valk iced the game with his second on the night and third of the season. Shinkaruk picked up his third assist and fourth point of the night on the goal.


Marek Langhamer had a great game saving 20 of the 21 Pats' shots to pick up his second win of the season and first on home ice.


The Tigers' special teams had a huge game going 3 for 9 on the power play while killing off both power plays chances for the Pats.
