Prince Albert, Red Deer to play tiebreaker to determine last playoff spot in WHL

CALGARY - A tie-breaker game between the Red Deer Rebels and the Prince Albert Raiders will be played in Red Deer on Tuesday to determine the final playoff position in the Western Hockey League's Eastern Conference.

The Raiders and Rebels finished the regular season in a tie for eighth place in the Eastern Conference with 75 points each.

The WHL used points between the clubs in head-to-head competition to determine the host site for the tie-breaker game. Red Deer won three of four games against Prince Albert this season by a margin of six points to three.

The winner of the tie-breaker game will meet the first place Edmonton Oil Kings in the first round of the WHL playoffs in Edmonton on Saturday.

Quote of the Day

I first met him when I was 19 years old and he coached me for 13 consecutive years. I don't know how many athletes who have had that pleasure. Al Arbour was a man that left us not only feeling like champions, but left us with a lot of great memories that we can carry on through life.
