The Blades and Wheaties return to Brandon for the back half of a home & home series. Brandon took the first meeting of the mini-series 5-1 on Wednesday night in Saskatoon. A win for the Blades would move them into a tie for 61 points with Brandon. It’s the first stop of a short weekend road trip as the Blades visit the Swift Current Broncos tomorrow night.

It’s an important game in the standings for both clubs as the East Division race continues to heat up. As of Friday, the top four teams in the East are spread by just six points.
