MEDICINE HAT, Alta. - Emerson Etem scored his second goal of the game 8:26 into overtime to lead the Medicine Hat Tigers to a 4-3 victory over the Calgary Hitmen in Game 3 of their Western Hockey League second-round playoff series Tuesday night.

With the win, the Tigers cut Calgary's lead in the Eastern Conference semifinal series to 2-1. Game 4 in the best-of-seven is set for Wednesday in Medicine Hat.

Mark Isherwood and Linden Vey also had singles for the Tigers.

Joel Broda scored twice for the Hitmen, while Giffen Nyren had a single.

Tyler Bunz made 28 saves for the Tigers. Martin Jones turned away 29 shots for the Hitmen.

Once again, it shows character in this dressing room. Once again, there's no quitting in here. We all wanted this so bad and we worked so hard to get home-ice advantage and we weren't going to let this one slide.
