EVERETT, Wash. - Stuart Skinner has his team one win away from being crowned Western Hockey League champions.

Skinner made 32 saves for his fifth shutout of the post-season as the Swift Current Broncos blanked the Everett Silvertips 1-0 on Wednesday in Game 4 of their best-of-seven series.

Colby Sissons supplied the game's only goal at 14:35 of the second period, helping to give Swift Current a 3-1 lead in the matchup.

Carter Hart turned aside 18 shots for Everett.

The Broncos went 1 for 4 on the power play while the Silvertips failed to score on five chances with the man advantage.

Game 5 stays in Everett with a 2-3-2 format for the series. The Broncos can win it all on Friday.

Broncos all the way . Here we are in beautiful Saskatchewan. We have Saskatoon, Moose Jaw, Swift Current , Prince Albert and Regina in the WHL and instead of being able to see the WHL playoffs they show the OHL playoffs on TV. What a Friggin Joke.

I thought the Broncos were done, when I saw my twitter feed and they were down 3-0 in Game 2. Against that defense and that goalie, there just (should) have been no coming back. They crawl back, win that game in OT and then go on to win 2 games in Everett.

They are a great team, a great story. Would love to see them in Regina!

But, Go Pats!!!

Pretty sad that this series isn't even televised... sportsnet would rather show the crappy blue jays. And tsn prefers to televise garbage NBA basketball which is basically predetermined entertainment at this point.

You could drive to Swift and watch the game on the score clock - concessions are open, Switzer blows the horn when they score, and they even zamboni the ice each intermission to make it an authentic experience :-)

Being from regina so honestly a "patsie" fan.. more over a whl fan particularly a sask fan. These Broncos make me proud even though it's not done I listen to every radio broadcast . Swift has been national champs in my lifetime (I'm 39) yet do a Google search of chls smallest markets u get owen sound (size of mouse jaw lol) cranbrook but smaller.. swift is half the size with size (and p a ) with twice the heart far as I'm concerned. I really hope your programs continue to attract develop and produce the players for years to come .. what a boone for your community.. makes me proud to be a sasky.. and yes I've been to Pat's games in mj. Pat's fan through and through but might be time I check these other "barns" out myself eventually.. sask needs these teams. I'm on your bandwagen till the memorial cup! Go Broncos go!!!!

Btw I was at the games and watched and listened as my Pats lost to these Broncos.. we were better team in spurts. Then the Broncos ultimately were the better team . hats off to a tremendous coach who gave kudos all around. I just want to mention how lame and unprofessional moose jaw's Tim hunter was .. again.. saying it was his injuries and lame jack crap.. its the dub playoffs . U build your team and go down with it . Never liked him as a player and showed his true colors after being ousted by the better team .. tough as nails east division just go out like a man .. manny v said all the right things this year (last year he sounded cocky to me) . This year he has the goods and the kids to bring to regina to win this thing .. hopefully my "patsies" get they're revenge . We'll see may long folks !! Great to be a sask sports fan!!

Swift Current has now won the WHL Trade Deadline Deals Sweepstakes in hindsight. Gennaro, Estaphan, Malenstyn, Fyten, Nagel, Anderson and Skinner have proved it.

Yes people will bemoan the fact that yes you sold the farm a bit like many other eastern teams and went for it. So did every other eastern team that matters .. enjoy the moment .. Brandon selling was a headscratcher to me but it's what they do... dont care about them they cheat to get players (see nolan Patrick.) Not exactly the London knights for championships so they can do what they do .. I'm really interested to see if p.a. is for real soon .. let's face it I'm a small market sask fan. I read recently the sj is becoming inferior to other provincial rivals.. I say no worries .. look at the teams our tiny markets are putting out in tier 1!! Haha I used to play minor hockey for the pilot butte Broncos and even wore their colors because we thought the world of those old teams with sakic Kennedy holt sysky (my home boy from white city) and jason krywaluck .. sorry if my spelling is off. My favorite minny sticks were swift Broncos and I'm a Pat's fan!! Glad to see the glory times back swift current . Smallest market by far but probly biggest in my heart . Do me a favor and win 1 more so u can make us proud in the memorial cup!!
