For the second consecutive season, the Seattle Thunderbirds and Kelowna Rockets will compete for the WHL’s Western Conference crown.
The Thunderbirds advanced upon completing a clean sweep of the Everett Silvertips, while the Rockets needed five games to get past the pesky Portland Winterhawks. Both second-round series came to a close Friday night.
The Western Conference Championship series will begin south of the border as the Thunderbirds play host for Games 1 and 2 at ShoWare Center on Friday, April 21, and Saturday, April 22, respectively. From there, the best-of-seven affair moves north to Prospera Place in Kelowna for Games 3 and 4 on Tuesday, April 25, and Wednesday, April 26, respectively.
