SASKATOON — The Western Hockey League showdown on Wednesday night is a big one for both the Saskatoon Blades and the Portland Winterhawks. A win by the Blades would put them straight through to Sunday's final, while a loss would have them play the London Knights in a tie-breaker on Thursday. Conversely, a Portland win would allow Halifax to move to the final, while the Winterhawks would get a berth in the semifinal and Saskatoon would play the heart-break game.
It might sound confusing, but at least there's no math involved.
Please join the Buzzing The Net crew of Cam Charron, Terry Doyle, Kelly Friesen, Steve McAllister Sunaya Sapurji, Neate Sager, Scott Sepich and a cast of many at 8 p.m. Eastern/6 p.m. Saskatchewan time when the action gets underway.
