Last time they met: In these teams’ last encounter the Wheaties scored two goals in the final 1:05 of regulation to tie the game 4-4 and eventually won out in the shootout at SaskTel Centre on October 6th.

What it means for Saskatoon: The Blades are in a midst of a point-streak (3-0-0-1) currently and another win would add to the bounty.

The stat: 8. All 8 of the Blades’ games this season, win or lose, have been one goal games.

The match-up: Nolan Maier vs Jiri Patera – With a notable goaltender at both ends of the ice, this game has the potential to turn into a goaltender duel.

It’s a big night for: The Saskatoon Blades – the Blades may have something to prove after their sudden loss to the Wheat Kings in their last encounter. Saskatoon had played well up until the final moments of the match when they surrendered their 2-goal lead in just over a minute. A win tonight would right some wrongs of the past – from the Blades’ perspective.
