In a WHL game seven, Tyler Ennis (+3) had a pair of assists as Medicine Hat advanced past Swift Current, 4-1. An Ennis shot on goal was pounced on at 1:29 of the first period to get the Tigers running, 1-0. His second helper came on the clinching empty netter with 1:48 to play. The Tigers move on to face either Brandon or Calgary. In the night's other game seven, Drew Schiestel (+1) had an assist as Niagara closed out their first round series with a 4-3 OT win over Ottawa. After getting beat on the first 67's goal, the Hamilton native shot on goal helped cash a power play with :19 left in the first period for his fifth point of the series. After a two-goal comeback in the third, 2009 eligible Andrew Agozzino ended it with a wrister just :13 into overtime. Fellow '09 Andrew Shaw also put forth a solid effort for Niagara. With the career of 67's coach Brian "Killer" Kilrea coming to an end, the Dogs start preparing for the Belleville Bulls in round two. On Monday, the 67's shut the Dogs out 4-0 to set up the loser-goes-home showdown. Schiestel was even in the loss.
