The road to Brandon goes through Windsor, Ont. as the Spitfires become the first league champion to join the host Wheat Kings for the MasterCard Memorial Cup. The Spitfires head to the tournament after sweeping the Barrie Colts on Tuesday night for the second consecutive Ontario Hockey League title. The Calgary Hitmen are hoping to be the next to join the Spitfires by claiming their first Memorial Cup ticket since 1999.
Yahoo! Sports will be at the tournament along with our guest on this week’s CHL live chat, Sportsnet’s junior hockey analyst Sam Cosentino.
