MEDICINE HAT, Alta. - Trevor Cox scored two goals and Marek Langhamer made 43 saves to lift the Medicine Hat Tigers over the Kootenay Ice 4-1 in Game 7 of their second round Western Hockey League playoff series Wednesday.
Cole Sanford had a goal and two assists, and Steve Owre also scored for the Tigers, who will play the Edmonton Oil Kings in the Eastern Conference final starting Friday.
Landon Peel scored the lone goal for the Ice, just 51 seconds into the game.
I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
