Tyler MacKenzie and Shane Smith brought the Tigers to 3-0 before the third period.

A couple of firsts for a couple of Hitmen:

Ben Kindel netted his first WHL goal to put Calgary on the scoreboard in the third period.

And Kindel was assisted by Sawyer Mayes, giving the latter his first WHL point.

MacKenzie would score one more time for Medicine Hat before the game was over.
