Pulling positives from a loss is generally a loser’s game, so we’re not going to go there.

The Hamilton Tiger-Cats went into Vancouver looking to keep a three-game winning streak alive.

On that front, they made the return flight to Hamilton a disappointed bunch.

A 29-26 loss to a B.C. Lions team that was reeling after a stunning meltdown in Montreal the week before had to hurt. This Ticats team is just finding its legs at this point in the season and confidence was sky high.

The loss to B.C., even a close loss, is going to eat into that confidence.

The schedule though will give the Ticats another shot to get whatever confidence was lost, back immediately as they two teams renew hostilities Saturday at Hamilton’s temporary home at Alumni Stadium in Guelph.

Here’s a look at what went right, what went wrong and what has to change if the Ticats are to get a split in this home and home series:
