Yes, the dates are set, so start scheduling/rescheduling your lives around the following. Family Reunion? Nope. Kids' piano recital? Forget it. Your only concern at this point is getting out to the Mel and making a ridiculous amount of noise as the Ice Wolves try to move on in the battle for the Cup.
Don't go to work either! Head down to Melfort for more ridiculous noise-making. I mean really, who needs to make money? Easy to say for the guy who gets paid to go to the games. Enough of my ridiculous demands of your time and lives.
Here are the dates:
Game 1 - @ La Ronge - Friday, March 18th, 7:30 p.m. - Webcast on L.S.
Game 2 - @ La Ronge - Saturday, March 19th, 7:30 p.m. - Webcast on L.S.
Game 3 - @ Melfort - Tuesday, March 22nd, 7:30 p.m. - MBC Radio
Game 4 - @ Melfort - Wednesday, March 23rd, 7:30 p.m. - MBC Radio
Game 5 - @ La Ronge - Friday, March 25th, 7:30 p.m. - Webcast on L.S.
Game 6 - @ Melfort - Sunday, March 27th, 7:30 p.m. - MBC Radio*
Game 7 - @ La Ronge - Tuesday, March 29th, 7:30 p.m. - Webcast on L.S.
*There is network Bingo on MBC on Sunday nights starting at 9:00. So there will be a conflict. I'll have details on how MBC will deal with said conflict leading up to the game. Two likely results, the game will be cut to during breaks in Bingo and/or the game will be on the online feed once bingo starts.
Should be a great series. These teams put on a really good show in their second last meeting of the season in an Ice Wolves 3-1 win. They went to overtime twice and there is a ridiculous amount of talent featured on the ice.
Can't wait for it to get going. I'll have the Game 1 preview up Friday morning!
