Things did not start well for Vaughn Watterodt and the Saskatoon Blades in their second round series against the Red Deer Rebels, as they lost the first three games. Fast forward a week later, and the Bridge City Bunch has a chance to complete a historic comeback on home ice this evening.
The team stayed alive with a 6-3 win on home ice this past Friday, and a 5-3 win in enemy territory on Sunday to force the seventh and deciding game.
Some unfortunate news has come for Delisle's Jhett Larson, as he will not play in game 7 for the Rebels tonight, after receiving a one game suspension for his instigator penalty in the last five minutes of Sunday's game.
The Rebels and Blades kick off game 7 at 7:00 this evening.
