Hey, hey! Hey, hey! Here, here! Hey! There you go baby. Jingle bells, Shorty! Jingle bells! Pause it. Okay, you can see how everything’s congested on this side. We get the center going in this direction here. You’re going to pull this back, and we’re going to come through. Okay, he comes down, so just put it around the wall and away we go. You have to read where they’re going from and adjust accordingly. You’ve got to get back quick, and you’ve got to look to wheel. Okay he’s a right-shot guy, he’ll swing on their right wings side and our left wing side. What we’re doing when he is out there… Bus will leave at 5.

Sends one in one net, opposite side and a score! On the rebound is Todd Skirving. Powell at the point. Across the ice to Brady Norrish. One-timer from Chase and he scores! Tigers cut the lead to 3-2. How many times already this season have we seen Chase Norrish do that on the power-play? He quickly gets it across to Dan Bailey. Bailey has it stripped by Caleb Cameron. Cameron into the zone, he’ll line up a shot. Still lose, score! The Tigers tie it! Sneaking it in on the opposite side is Ryan Kruper, and that’s his first collegiate goal.
