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 mean, hockey had to change the rules because of Marty, and that's impressive. I got two Stanley Cup rings because of the guy. Look at the banners of [Scott Niedermayer, Scott Stevens and Ken Daneyko] and Marty is right up there when you think about the New Jersey Devils; he was part of the core group and he'll go down as one of the greatest goalies ever.
