Tonight’s Matchup: @ Virden 7:00pm: The Wolverines are a win away from securing home-ice advantage in the first round of the MJHL Playoffs. It is not official that the Wolverines and Oil Capitals will square off in that series, but a Wolverines win will give us where that Game 1 will be played.

Last Game: 5-2 Win vs. Virden: It was a nice bounce back win for the Wolverines who lost six of seven heading into the game. A big third period propelled them to victory, with Joey Moffatt scoring two goals in the third.

Tonight’s Matchup: Vs. Waywayseecappo 7:00pm: The Oil Capitals know who their first round matchup will be now, and it’s the team they will face off against for the last time in the regular season tonight. Virden will need a miracle to secure home ice in that series, but it starts with a win (regulation win even better) over the Wolverines.

Last Game: 5-2  Loss @ Waywayseecappo: The Oil Capitals were able to tie the game at two different times but the third period was where the game got away from them, letting three goals past them.
