Tigers jumped out to a 3-0 first period lead on the Hitmen today, and I was thinking about how the Tigers have been playing unreal and may be better than I initially thought. Then the Hitmen took control of the game completely, and have just dummied the Tigers ever since.

6-3 with time winding down.

I was worried in the first that they were still suffering the turkey hangover like they were in the Thanksgiving day game vs Edmonton.Then they came back and were playing more like they're capable of. Peters was incredible in his relief duties.

If this team keeps their feet moving and stops taking lazy penalties, they can play with any team in the league.

On a side note, Carl Stankowski isn't with the team right now, though the Hitmen still retain his WHL rights. I suspect it has to do with the fact that he has ab autoimmune disorder called ankylosing spondylitis, which presents like
Rheumatoid Arthritis but in the spine. Article

Oliver Okuliar looking like a heck of a pick up for the Canes.

Goals in 7 straight now, including back to back hatricks. He leads the WHL in goals now.

Canes are 8-0-0-2 in their last ten, although mostly games vs weaker teams.

Still impressed by them so far.

Bah. Canes just had a 10-0-0-2 streak come to an end where they out shot TC 49 to 16.

Listened to a podcast where they said the Canes are the 2nd youngest team in the WHL and have the lowest amount of collective WHL game experience on their roster. Pretty impressive to be sitting where they are a quarter of the way into the season.

Also, despite being the 2nd youngest, they are the tallest and heaviest team in the league. Just thought that was interesting.

Around the league Kelowna is getting worked tonight by Spokane. They do not look like a legit Memorial Cup contender so far this year. Barely above .500 and 7 of their 9 wins have come against 500 or lower teams. Going to be interesting to see if they can turn it around and not have to back into the memorial cup as a super weak host team.
