Brandon, Regina & Kelowna could move on to second round with a win tomorrow. Based on the current playoff standings:

Brandon would meet Regina
Kelowna would meet Victoria, unless PG comes back.

Good grammar has went.

First line of the story about Kelowna defeating Victoria in game one of their series:

"Leon Draisaitl started Friday's second round series opener with Victoria slow."

Well, of course, with Victoria playing slowly they'd be in trouble playing against Leon Draisaitl.

Slow is an adjective, not an adverb. Use slowly. It doesn't modify Victoria.
It should look like this:
"Leon Draisaitl started slowly in Friday's second round series opener with Victoria."

Bump

So post season road to 2016 Memorial Cup in Red Deer Alberta is about to start:

Round 1 matchups

Eastern Conference of WHL

Medicine Hat Tigers(8) @ Brandon Wheat Kings(1)
Regina Pats(7) @ Lethbridge Hurricanes(2)
Calgary Hitmen(4) @ Red Deer Rebels(3)
Moose Jaw Warriors(6) @ Prince Albert Raiders(5)

Western Conference of WHL

Spokane Chiefs(8) @ Victoria Royals(1)
Prince George Cougars(6) @ Seattle Thunderbirds(3)
Kamloops Blazers(4) @ Kelowna Rockets(2)
Portland Winterhawks(7) @ Everett Silvertips(5)

Without Jackson Whistle in the lineup imo Kelowna maybe very lucky to get past Kamloops in first round.

My WHL Finals prediction has Brandon vs Victoria (would rather see Kelowna against Brandon)

Sad to see the Rockets blow a one-goal lead with 31 seconds and go on to lose by one goal. I know they miss Merkley and Whistle but there's more to it than that. I'm not convinced they'll make it out of the first round but if they do and face Victoria I don't give them much of a chance.

The disadvantage of a young defense & goaltender with a lack of playoff experience.

Due to the IIHF Women's Championship, playoff games in Kamloops are being played at old Kamloops Memorial Arena.

Later: overall ice size is small & blue lines are closer to each other.
