TRI CITIES, Wash. - As expected, the Western Conference Championship series will be a long one, and as expected, neither team has given the other much room to move.
By splitting the first four games of the series the Spokane Chiefs and Tri-City Americans have guaranteed that it will go at least six games. Game five will be in Tri-City on Saturday and six in Spokane on Monday.
Three of the four games have gone into overtime and three have produced shutouts. There have been two combined power play goals, both scored in Tuesday night's win by Tri-City in game four. The American's victory has turned the series into a best-of-three. A potential game seven would be played on Tuesday, April 29th in Kennewick.
The tone the series has taken on isn't much of surprise considering three of their regular season games went to overtime and the Americans won the season series by just one point.
Game five will be played on Saturday at 7:30 p.m.
Chiefs fans can follow the action by tuning into either the home of the Chiefs, 1510 KGA or watching it live on Comcast channel 78.
