The Swift Current Broncos start a home-and-home with the Moose Jaw Warriors tonight as the stretch run continues in the WHL season.
The Broncos have eight games left in the regular season and are in the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, two points back of seventh-place Medicine Hat and one point ahead of the ninth-place Calgary Hitmen, who visit the Red Deer Rebels tonight.
The Warriors have won three of the four meetings with the Broncos so far with Swift Current picking up a 4-0 win as the Lake Diefenbaker Slough Sharks two weeks ago.
Face-off is at 7:00pm tonight from InnovationPlex and then two teams will play for the final time this season Saturday night in the Friendly City. Both games will be live on the Eagle 94.1 FM with Living Sky Casino Broncos Hockey starting 30 minutes before face-off.
Bruins hold McDavid and Draisaitl pointless, Oilers win anyway
Darnell Nurse scored the go-ahead goal with 4:49 left in the third period as the Edmonton Oilers edged the NHL-leading Boston Bruins 3-2 last night at TD Garden. It’s the first time this season the Oilers had won a game without either Connor McDavid or Leon Draisaitl scoring a point.
Elsewhere, Alex DeBrincat scored the winner with less than three minutes left in the third as Ottawa beat Seattle 5-4. The Kraken are tied with the Oilers for third in the Pacific Division. And Patrick Kane scored his first goal with the New York Rangers as they beat Montreal 4-3 in the shootout.
The Calgary Flames look to extend their two-game winning streak when they host the Anaheim Ducks in one of two NHL games on tonight's schedule.
