Tigers goaltender Marek Langhammer made 22 saves for the win. Kootenay's Mackenzie Skapski stopped 32 shots in the losing effort.

Quote of the Day

I loved being in the jerseys again and they worked some magic for us. It was weird in warm-ups, seeing No. 22 in that jersey and thinking he’s [Mike Gartner], and No. 8 reminds you of Danny Briere … every number had me thinking back to the guys who wore them and smiling.
