TURNING POINT:

With the visitors nursing a one-goal third-period lead, Tommy Maxwell slid the puck harmlessly towards the net from the corner that hit Scott Bowles' skate and trickled in for the eventual game-winner.

SAVE OF THE GAME:

Hitmen import Konstantin Pushkarev picked up a loose puck in the first period, showed great patience as he went around a pile-up in the crease and had Tigers starter Kevin Nastiuk at his mercy. But Nastiuk reached back and got a glove on the puck to steal a sure goal.

HIT OF THE GAME:

It was more comical (or embarrassing, depending on your point of view) than devastating. Hitmen rookie Brodie Dupont was attempting to gain the Tigers' zone during a Hitmen powerplay but was run over by teammate Konstantin Pushkarev at the blueline. Honourable mention goes to Calgary C Shaun Landolt, who steamrolled Roman Psurny in the third period.

HARDEST WORKER:

Calgary LW Derek Werenka has been solid in his short stint with the club.
