The Warriors alumni have been making themselves known during the NHL playoffs and have already been making noise on the long path to hoisting the coveted prize.
A couple game 7's are on tap tonight, the big one... 1st vs 8th seed, Canucks vs Blackhawks, Favorites vs Under Dogs.... Warriors former Captain Troy Brouwer will take on the Vancouver squad filled with twin fire power and one of Canada's best goaltenders in Roberto Luongo.
The Warriors have one former player wearing the blue and green in Aaron Rome who was in Moose Jaw for the 03/04 season and played in 8 playoff games, banking 6 points for the tribe. Rome came from Swifty in a trade.
Pittsburgh and Tampa will meet up tomorrow night. The Pen's Deryk Engelland played his whole WHL career in the Jaw. Tampa's Pavel Kubina made only a one year stop in the WHL and that stop was in Moose Jaw for the 96/97 season. Game 7 goes Wednesday in Pittsburgh.
