The Winnipeg Wild (39-5-1-1) will look to do their part in securing first place when they take on the Yellowhead Chiefs in their final home game of the regular season this afternoon at Bell MTS IcePlex. They would lock up first place with a victory this afternoon to go along with a Brandon loss on the road this afternoon against the Pembina Valley Hawks. After today, the Wild will head down the highway to close their season tomorrow afternoon in Beausejour against the Eastman Selects who could, pending results today still be playing for home ice advantage in Round 1 of the playoffs.
For the Yellowhead Chiefs (25-19-2-0) their playoff seeding is a little more complicated, they can finish as high as 5th, but could also in theory slide to the 8th and final playoff spot. Yellowhead will close out the season tomorrow in Tuelon against the Interlake Lightning.
As the saying goes, lots at stake in the final weekend of the season should make for some good hockey.
