I hope that the Blades can pull a couple of tricks out of their own hats tonight against the Tigers. After a 7-2 loss to the Wheat Kings on Wednesday. I am pretty sure that the Blades coaching staff got their message across in practice/ the post game meeting and hopefully the team responds with a better effort tonight.
The Tigers are 2nd in the central division and Linden Vey and Wacey Hamilton lead the Tigers in points.
For the Blades Captain Derek Hulak and Walker Wintoneak continue to lead the Blades in points.
This game will be the 2nd meeting between the Tigers and Blades,in the last game the Blades defeated the Tigers 7-2.
The Arena in the gas city is a rather difficult facility to play in (I have watched 2 games there although they were playoff games) but I think IF the Blades can score on the Tigers and keep the lead that should take the home crowd out of the game...they will have to do it without two key players... Jyri Niemi and Curtis Hamilton who are both injured right now.
