Two rounds in the books, two more rounds to go for the Westman High School Hockey League's Neepawa Tigers. The Tigers swept away Virden in a best-of-three A-side second round series this past week, outscoring the Golden Bears 16-3 in two games (9-1, 7-2). "The Virden series went pretty well for us," said Tigers' head coach Mike Adams. "We started a little slow in both games, but got better every period." With the series win, the Tigers have advanced to the third round where they'll meet the Major Pratt Trojans (Russell) in another best-of-three affair. The Trojans finished the regular season third overall in the league, seven points back of second-place Neepawa. "One of the things we have stressed this year is to play our game regardless of who the opponent is," he said. Adams says the coaching staff will continue with their "wait and see approach" when it comes to who gets the nod in net each game. Brady Plett and Grant Graham have shared the duties this year and wound up winning the top goalie award in the WHSHL, allowing only 35 goals in 18 games. Adams says the goalie rotation may continue for the foreseeable future. "Our goaltending has been very good this year. I don't know if we will continue to rotate all the way through the playoffs. Brady (Plett) has played well and is getting some great experience, while Grant (Graham) has been through these playoffs before and is two years older, so that may factor in later on in the postseason. "They both need to prepare for every game and earn their starts," he continued. As the playoffs continue, Adams says playing a complete 60 minutes and not having any lapses during games will be key going forward. "With the slow starts we've been having, our goalies (Brady Plett, Grant Graham) have been there to bail us out until we get our legs going," he said. "That's something we are trying to change and we will continue to focus on every game." Game 1 of the series is scheduled for Wednesday night in Neepawa at the Yellowhead Centre. Game time is 7:15 p.m. Game 2 meanwhile, will be played in Waywayseecappo on Saturday due to a set-back in the new Russell arena project. The $8-million multiplex was supposed to open in August 2011 but construction problems have kept the doors closed. Game time for Saturday's tilt is set for 7:30 p.m. Game 3 (if necessary) will be played in Neepawa on Sunday. For more on the article that was posted on myWestman.ca Click Here.
