In the last two years the Broncos are 0-4 with a chance to finish a series in game 6 - hopefully they can figure out a way to change that on Monday. If they play like they did last night and avoid stupid penalties they should have a pretty decent chance (and hopefully the Americans can extend their series to 7 games).

Swift Current might be up 3 - 2 but the Hurricanes of Lethbridge will prevail to take this series.

What a horrible thing for those Memorial Cup organizers if either Everett or Lethbridge represent the WHL. They can't even sellout the upper ends on east side for any game, and that's with Swift still in this thing.
