Chad Butcher responded with the Tigers' lone goal, on the power play halfway through the second period.
It's not just going to happen on its own. We have to have guys commit to the areas we need to improve on. We're going to be better than last year but there is still a long way to go. But I really like the pieces and where we're headed.
