CHL Playoff Notebook: April 28, 2019


Only one series is left to be decided following Sunday playoff action in the Canadian Hockey League:

Ontario Hockey League

The Guelph Storm set up a winner-takes-all contest versus the Saginaw Spirit after coming away with a 5-1 victory in Game 6 on Sunday. Leading the charge for the Storm was left-wing Pavel Gogolev, who tallied two goals en route to second-star honours. After climbing back from a three-game deficit last round, the Storm will look to complete the comeback versus the Spirit on Monday in Saginaw, with the winner moving on to the OHL Final for a date with the Ottawa 67’s.

Quebec Major Junior Hockey League

The 2019 Memorial Cup presented by Kia host Halifax Mooseheads will compete for the President’s Cup after ousting the Drummondville Voltigeurs in six games in third-round action. The Mooseheads, who will now face the first-place Rouyn-Noranda Huskies in the QMJHL Final, eliminated the Voltigeurs on Sunday thanks to a 2-1 overtime victory in which left-wing Xavier Parent played the hero for the winning side.

Western Hockey League

For the first time since 1985, the Prince Albert Raiders will compete for the Ed Chynoweth Cup, going up against the Vancouver Giants, after defeating the Edmonton Oil Kings in six games in the WHL’s Eastern Conference Final. The Raiders sealed the series Sunday following a 4-2 win that saw rookie centre Aliaksei Protas net a hat-trick for the second consecutive game.
