Rimmer stops 37 shots as the Tigers snap eight-game winless streak

MEDICINE HAT, Alta. - Elgin Pearce and Curtis Valk both scored in the shootout as the Medicine Hat Tigers edged the visiting Lethbridge Hurricanes 2-1 on Saturday in Western Hockey League play.

The victory snapped an eight-game winless streak for Medicine Hat, which hadn't earned a victory since a 5-2 win against the Moose Jaw Warriors on Nov. 9th.

Dylan Busenius scored in regulation time for the Tigers (13-16-2), who are 8-5-0 on home ice.

Craig Leverton scored the lone goal for the Hurricanes (14-14-4), who had defeated Medicine Hat three times already this season.

Ty Rimmer picked up the win and the game's first star by making 37 saves as Cam Lanigan earned the game's second star after turning aside 41 shots in a losing cause.

Medicine Hat went 0 for 4 on the power play while Lethbridge failed to score on either of its chances with the man advantage.

Quote of the Day
