The Eastman Selects are gearing up for the last weekend of regular season play this weekend! With two pivotal games to keep there hopes alive in moving up in the standings.
After a split last weekend the Selects are in need of a sweep this weekend if they are going to have any chance to leap frog the Winnipeg Thrashers for 3rd place.
The team travels to portage la prairie on Saturday to play the struggling Central Plains Capitals, and then return home Sunday afternoon at 2:00 pm to close out the regular season against the Interlake Lightning.
At the conclusion of the regular season there will be a two week break due to the Canada winter games in Prince George, BC. The team would like to wish Brett Davis good luck at the games as he will be one of the members of team manitoba!
With so many teams so tightly bunched up in the standings a first round matchup is still in question. One thing does look good is the Selects are in a good position for home ice advantage in the first round.
