Langhamer makes 38 saves as the Tigers blank the Broncos

MEDICINE HAT, Alta. - Marek Langhamer stopped 38 shots as the Medicine Hat Tigers blanked the visiting Swift Current Broncos 2-0 on Saturday in Western Hockey League action.

Langhamer's second shutout of the season earned him the game's first star and his third win in as many outings.

Curtis Valk opened the scoring for the Tigers (32-28-3) 4:24 into the first period and Boston Leier added an insurance goal into an empty net late in the third period.

Eetu Laurikainen made 23 saves in a losing cause for the Broncos (28-27-7), who dropped their third game in a row.

Medicine Hat went 0 for 3 on the power play while Swift Current failed to score on two chances with the man advantage.

Quote of the Day

I don't think it's really truly going to sink in until we drop the puck, to be honest. I know there's going to be a lot of smoke and mirrors with the media attention and all that. We came [Monday] and it was sort of a light day to get things organized. We just want to focus in on the business aspect, the game itself. That's what we're preparing to do. Get these next couple of days out of the way and it's game on.
