Broncos 4 Tigers 2
What an atmosphere inside the Credit Union i-plex for the opening game of the Tigers and Broncos best-of-seven set.
Tiger fans were dispersed around the building which only seemed to elevate the passion of Bronco fans.
Despite not selling out, the building was the loudest and most intense it's been all season long. The fans were into it as the Broncos came out hitting everything in sight and getting some early chances.
The teams traded good chances throughout the game as both goaltenders Ryan Holfeld and Travis Yonkman engaged in a pretty good battle between the pipes.
The teams combined for 71 shots in a fast-paced affair.
Keegan Dansereau, the leader in playoff experience with 56 games career in the post-season, finished the night with the hat-trick after putting the game away with the empty-netter.
Tyler Ennis, as a dangerous as ever, had both Tiger goals.
The best part?
We do it all again tonight.
