The Canadian Press' take on Seattle's crucial win vs Spokane:
Quote:
SPOKANE, Wash. - Burke Gallimore scored the winning goal with less than five minutes remaining in the third period as the Seattle Thunderbirds edged the host Spokane Chiefs 4-3 on Friday in Western Hockey League action.

Colin Jacobs and Luke Lockhart each had a goal and an assist for the Thunderbirds (25-43-2), who are tied for the final playoff position in the Western Conference, while Seth Swenson added a single goal.

Blake Gal, Dylan Walchuk and Marek Kalus scored for the Chiefs (37-25-9), who are fifth in the West.

Calvin Pickard made 36 saves for the win as Eric Williams stopped 25 shots in a losing effort.

Seattle went 1 for 5 on the power play while Spokane went 2 for 5.

Victoria Royals will play Kamloops Blazers in the first round. Everett wins 6 - 4

Seattle needs a win tomorrow to have a playoff game against Everett on Tuesday, otherwise Everett has 8th place.

So Seattle has to beat Portland to make the playoffs...

With Baertschi back, I don't like their odds.

Round 1 - Victoria and Kamloops

and

Royals enter WHL playoffs against heavily favoured Kamloops in battle-ready condition

Rain Man was named best picture and the Berlin Wall was still up the last time a Victoria team played in the Western Hockey League playoffs, during the spring of 1989.

That was followed by five consecutive seasons of missing the post-season before the hapless Victoria Cougars franchise was moved to Prince George in 1994. Nothing has changed much for the latter the Prince George Cougars are still missing the playoffs. But the Victoria Royals, the former Chilliwack Bruins before moving to the capital this season, are in and will meet the Kamloops Blazers in a Western Conference best-of-seven opening-round series starting Friday and Saturday in the Interior.

Games 3-4 are Tuesday, March 27, and Thursday, March 29, at Save-on-Foods Memorial Centre. If required, the remaining games would be Friday, March 30, in Kamloops, Monday, April 2, at the Memorial Centre and Wednesday, April 4, in Kamloops.

Here's my first round predictions.


Edmonton vs Kootenay - Edmonton 4 games to 3
Moose Jaw vs Regina - Regina 4 games to 3
Calgary vs Brandon - Calgary 4 games to 1
Medicine Hat vs Saskatoon - Medicine Hat 4 games to 2



Tri City vs Everett. Tri cities - 4 games to 0
Kamloops vs Victoria - Kamloops 4 games to 1
Portland vs Kelowna - Portland 4 games to 3
Vancouver vs Spokane - Vancouver 4 games to 3



I don't see any upsets in the West - but the East - any team can beat each other on any given night.

Spokane will upset Vancouver and take them in 7. The leadership they have led by Darren Kramer will prevail.

Tri-cities in 6
Kamloops in 5
Portland in 5
Spokane in 6

Edmonton in 6
Moose Jaw in 5
Calgary in 7
Medicine Hat in 7

Anyone who thinks Kelowna takes more than 1 against Portland needs their head checked.

The amount of times Kelowna has advanced in the playoffs in the past, with average teams is incredible. I will not count the Rockets out until the final buzzer sounds.

Its interesting how so many people are saying that Spokane will take Vancouver in 6. Anybody got reasons behind this, or is it just a hate for Vancouver as a city in general?

I picked Vancouver to win that series too.

On a side note
