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

It's really exciting. I'm pretty sure that when I play my first game I'm going to be emotional. To be back on the ice playing a game, being in game situations, with all the routines and rituals I do before games and during the game, I feel like I'm going to be emotional. I'm going to be really happy.
