Tigers maul Rebels in Medicine Hat

Red Deer allowed eight straight goals in the loss

It was another ugly one for the Red Deer Rebels in Medicine Hat Saturday.

The Tigers pounced on the Rebels early and often and rolled to an easy 9-1 victory in front of 2,912 at the Canalta Centre.

After Josh Tarzwell scored his fifth goal of the year just 1:48 into the game, the Tigers rattled off eight straight goals to sink the Rebels.

It was the second straight loss for Red Deer after winning three in a row last week.

Daniel Baker, Cole Sillinger and Caleb Wilms each notched a pair of tallies in the win, while Mads Sogaard stopped 19 shots for the win.

Ethan Anders was pulled for the second straight night in the Rebels net, he allowed six goals on 29 shots. Byron Fancy made eight of 11 saves in the third.

Just 33 seconds into the game, Baker let a seeing eye point shot go that eluded Anders, but Tarzwell managed to help the Rebels climb back in.

Baker did the same thing at 4:06 of the first, again beating Anders with a shot through a screen. Wilms added a goal at 12:46 of the frame.

In the second, James Hamblin, Ryan Chyzowski and Sillinger buried for Medicine Hat. Sillinger, Nick McCarry and Wilms had third-period goals.

The Tigers had two power play goals and a short-handed tally in the win.

Medicine Hat outshot the Rebels 40-20 in the contest.
