Game Preview: Medicine Hat Tigers at Moose Jaw Warriors
The home stretch for the playoffs is fully underway now. These two clubs are right in the thick of that race in the WHL Eastern Conference. The Tigers and Warriors will both be looking to gain ground in the pursuit of first place in the Eastern Conference tonight. The Warriors hold the trump card by controlling the top seed in the East Division. The Warriors possess a nine point lead in the division, by defeating the Saskatoon Blades on Wednesday night, and are now chasing the Edmonton Oil Kings for top spot in the Eastern Conference. The hunt for first place in the conference continues as the margin is only five points and the Warriors hold a game in-hand on the Oil Kings. The Tigers are also looking to hunt down the number one seed trailing Edmonton by nine points. Thus, the importance of this back-to-back set between these clubs is of the utmost. The two teams also possess a couple of the WHL`s hottest players right now.
