THE STORY COMING IN
The Medicine Hat Tigers look to keep the momentum rolling as they play host to the Prince Albert Raiders Friday night at Co-op Place. The Tigers are coming off a much needed 5-4 overtime win as the Tigers completed the comeback against the Swift Current Broncos. Owen MacNeil scored his first of the season and Corson Hopwo and Teague Patton also notched their first goals of the campaign to help lift the Tigers to victory.

 

TIGERS VS RAIDERS
The Tigers will be looking for a bit of redemption tonight as the last two times these two foes met, Prince Albert came away with the 3-2 shootout win. The Tigers powerplay started clicking this week and the boys in orange will look to try to continue to fill the net on the man advantage. The Tigers powerplay is now 5/29 (17.2%) after going ¾ on the PP on Tuesday. Prince Albert is 3/28 (10.7%) on the powerplay this season. The Tigers are 4th in the Central Division and 7th in the Eastern Confernce, while the Raiders are 6th in the East Division and 12th in the Eastern Conference.

 

PRINCE ALBERT RAIDERS
This is the Raiders first game since getting the extra point in the shootout with the Tigers last weekend. This is the beginning of a mini 2 game southern Alberta roadtrip that will stop in Medicine Hat tonight, then in Lethbridge to do battle with the Hurricanes on Saturday.

WHO TO WATCH – TIGERS
Oasiz Wiesblatt is highly skilled, creative forward who is currently playing in the top 6 on a line with Owen MacNeil and Ashton Ferster. The 5’8 sparkplug from Calgary, AB has 1 assist on the season, but Oasiz generates opportunities regularly. Look for him to be in the middle of the action all night long.

WHO TO WATCH – RAIDERS
Ozzy Wiesblatt is Oasiz’s older brother and currently leads the Raiders in scoring with 6 points (4G, 2A) through 6 games this season. The elder Wiesblatt has scored in three consecutive games and has only been held off the scoresheet once so far this season. Tonight marks the second time in a week these Ozzy and Oasiz have faced off against each other.
