After five games in three provinces over the past 10 days, the CHL Subway Super Series will be decided Thursday when Team WHL faces Russia in the finale of the six-game showdown at the Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre in Victoria, British Columbia.
Team WHL's 1-0 shootout win Wednesday in Vancouver gave the CHL stars an 8-7 lead in points through five games, but a regulation win by either side will decide the series. If Russia wins in a shootout, another shootout will be held to decide the series champion.
The game can be seen at 10 p.m. ET on NHL Network in the United States and Sportsnet in Canada.
Ten players who were part of Wednesday's win for Team WHL will skate in Thursday's game, including goaltender Laurent Brossoit, who stopped all 30 shots he faced in regulation and three more in the shootout.
