It's been a rough season for the Fort St. John Flyers, but with just one game left in the regular season, that doesn't matter. The Flyers have won three games in a row, and are locked into a first-round playoff series against the Grande Prairie Athletics.
The best of seven series will determine who will go on to the next round. The second-round opponent is to be determined, but will likely be a crossover against an East Division team. The Athletics are a much improved team this season and have given the Flyers all they can handle this year, and the series looks to be a long and gruelling one on both sides.
Below is the playoff schedule for the first round series. All games start at 8:30 p.m.
Game One — Tuesday, Feb. 5: Fort St. John at Grande Prairie
Game Two — Thursday, Feb. 7: Grande Prairie at Fort St. John
