Well... I'm over it now.. The good news is that I can still watch and listen to hockey..

The bad news is , the doctor says I can take hockey in small doses only...

damned Rockets...

That was an amazing game that I could have only dreamed of being at ...with portable defibrillator ..

Go Rockets !!
I payed attention in High school....But not to what they were trying to teach me..

Tonights game:

Kelowna has the advantage of playoff experience.

imo keys stay away from penalty box & use our speed, dictate our style of hockey.

Kelowna average height 6'1"
Seattle average height 5'11"

Kelowna average weight 183lbs
Seattle average weight 197lbs

With this not being on Shaw, is there any other way to watch it at home? I see a site called "WHL Live" but it seems to have mixed reviews as far as quality and has no app for our smart TV or chromecast.

WHL Live @ $7.99 per/game or $29.95 for round 3, is about it for watching (or take your chances with walk up). Free to listen to 1150 am radio (my preferred choice) via computer/tablet or cellphone.

Last time these two teams met in the playoffs the Rockets lost the first three and then stormed back to win four straight. They'd better not be counting on doing that this time though because this Thunderbird team is far better than the one that coughed up the 3-0 lead a few years ago.

Exactly, looking at Landon Bow (Seattle goaltender) was brought in on a trade at deadline from Swift Current. To help Seattle go deep into the playoffs.

GAA of 2.49 4th in WHL
Save % .923 2nd in WHL

Kelowna has its work cut out for them in this round, those numbers are regular season. Usually goaltenders step it up a bit more in the playoffs.

What a crappy goal to lose on. Going down 2-0 heading to Seattle is not good. Need to win game 3 now. Positive is rockets have not been playing bad, just Seattle has been 1 uping us.

Well down 3-0 now in the series. I don't think we are going to be making the comeback against Seattle like they did a few years ago.

As much as I want to see Kelowna move on to WHL finals, there chances of winning 4 straight is slim. Hey anything can happen, at this point I rather not see a swept by Seattle.
