WHL Roundup: Sanford scores four times as Tigers win Game 5 to stay alive

MEDICINE HAT, Alta. - Cole Sanford had four goals and two assists as the Medicine Hat Tigers kept their season alive for at least one more game by defeating the visiting Kootenay Ice 9-2 on Saturday in Western Hockey League playoff action.

Trevor Cox scored once and set up three more for the Tigers, who scored six unanswered goals in the third period, and Curtis Valk had a goal and two assists. Miles Koules, Chad Butcher and Chad Labelle added a goal apiece to round out their club's offence.

Levi Cable and Landon Peel supplied the goals for the Ice, who lead the series 3-2.

Medicine Hat's Marek Langhamer made 23 saves for the win as Wyatt Hoflin stopped 44-of-53 shots for Kootenay.

The Tigers went 2 for 3 on the power play while the Ice failed to score on three chances with the man advantage.

Quote of the Day

There was a lot of talk off the ice. From a player's standpoint, that's not the talk in the room. GMs make decisions, coaches make decisions, but as a team you have to come together and be ready to go, and we are.
