2011 MasterCard Memorial Cup – Semifinal
Kootenay Ice vs Mississauga St. Michael’s Majors
Tonight, May 27, 2011 at 8:00 pm
MISSISSAUGA, Ont. – The Saint John Sea Dogs will find out who their opponent is for Sunday’s MasterCard Memorial Cup final tonight.
The Western Hockey League champion Kootenay Ice face the host Mississauga St. Michael’s Majors tonight at 8:00 pm at the Hershey Centre in the tournament’s semifinal game. The winner will advance to Sunday’s final while the loser will have their season come to an end.
The two teams faced each other last Sunday with the Majors coming out in top by score of 2-1.
The Ice, who started the tournament off with a 0-2 record, have staved off elimination in both of their last two games. They beat Saint John 5-4 in overtime on Tuesday and then eliminated the Owen Sound Attack 7-3 in the tiebreaker last night.
Mississauga has lost just one game in the Memorial Cup and that came in the tournament opener one week ago against the Sea Dogs.
Saint John has not played since Tuesday and will be much more rested than either team they face.
Tonight’s game can be seen on Rogers Sportsnet and RDS.
