Rassell dazzles as Tigers take third win in a row

By Medicine Hat News on October 3, 2016.

Mark Rassell broke open a 1-1 tie in the third period wit his second shorthanded goal in as many days to lead the Medicine Hat Tigers to a 3-1 victory over the Broncos Saturday in Swift Current.

The Tigers shook off a slow start and rallied to their third victory in a row after Broncos forward Arthur Miller put Medicine Hat in an early hole with his second goal of the season.

David Quenneville got the ball rolling midway through the opening frame with his first of the year on a power play marker from Chad Butcher and Mason Shaw and Rassell stole away the lead after a scoreless second with his fourth of the year.

The Tabbies managed to tack on some insurance after Broncos winger Calvin Spencer landed himself in the box for a cross-checking infraction. Matt Bradley and John Dahlstrom set up Max Gerlach late in the man-advantage and the 18-year-old Texan beat Broncos netminder Taz Burman to the mesh to seal the victory.

Burman finished the night with a loss despite 41 saves, while Tigers goaltender Nick Schneider improved to 2-0-0-0 with a 27-save performance.

The Tigers (3-1-0-0) return to the Canalta Centre Wednesday to host the Moose Jaw Warriors (2-0-1-0) at 7 p.m.
