Game 3 was a back a forth battle with both teams trading goals early. The game was broken open in the 3rd period, when the Tigers scored 4 third period goals, two of them while being down 5 players to 3, on way to a 8-4 victory. This game was a hard fought, chippy, penalty filled affair. The Tigers played strong and battled until the very end to ensure the victory.

The Coaches are very proud of the players and how hard they worked during this series. The players played as a "team" an every player was a contributing factor in their victory.
