It’s game three tonight between the West Kelowna Warriors and Vernon Vipers in the first round of the BCHL playoffs, with both sides looking to take a stranglehold.
Vernon was able to win game one on the road at Royal LePage Place in front of a four-figure crowd on April 1 by a score of 5-2, before West Kelowna tied the series with a 5-2 win in game two on Saturday.
It was a record night for one Warriors skater, namely Charles Alexis Legault, who tied a franchise record for most points by a defenseman in a playoff game with three.
Though lineups for the two squads remain much the same for game three, West Kelowna will receive quite a boost in the return of Felix Trudeau, who is returning from a five-game suspension.
Puck drop is set for 7 p.m. at Kal Tire Place in Vernon, who is hosting its first game of the 2021-22 postseason. Game broadcast will be available on the Shaw Spotlight Channel, BCHLTV.
Game four will go April 6, also in Vernon.
