"We got a few bad bounces and we've lost those games. Give credit to them you know they've worked hard and they deserve those wins. We got to find a way to when we get in those situations to find a way to get the job done," forward Brendan Shinnimin added.

The other Western Coference semi-final between the Kamloops Blazers and Portland Winterhawks is also tied at 3-3.
