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

What we expected is what we got. Very mature young individual that's focused. He is on the right track. He's not only a great hockey individual, but he's a good person off the ice. He seemed to take a leadership role with this group right off the hop and ran away with it, and was vocal, was respectful, was everything it takes to be a Panther. His future looks bright.
