Ducks and Tigers skate to a 4-4 draw.
The green Ducks needed a late goal from
Trevor Hanson to tie the Tigers on Friday.
Sometimes bonus hockey is a good thing, but not when it involves the
last place team, Steve Hardy, or Mike Saia. When it contains all
three, you just wanna shut out the lights.
The Tigers got goals from Jimmy D, Mark D, and George Anderson to
take a 3-1 lead into first recess.
This writer wasn't at the game, but there was only one goal, so can
only assume there was one shot. Trevor had the goal to cut the lead
In the third the Tigers went up by a pair as Mark Kramer got his
seasonal goal out of the way early this season. But with 2 minutes
to play with a 2 goal lead, the Tigers looked like the MLB Tigers.
The bullpen failed these Tigers too.
Rick Murphy had just arrived, so he was fresh, and with 1:58 left to
play cut the lead to 4-3. Then in the dying moments, Hanson scored
again to force OT.
"We obviously did not have the proper personnel on the ice in that
final minute," said Tiger captain Rick Armand. "I gotta find a way
to get Dan McCarthy more ice time early in the game so we can keep
him on the bench later in the game."
In OT, a good time was had by all, but no goals were scored. A link
to the OT video is below.
