Game Day

SCOTT FISHER -- Calgary Sun

, Last Updated: 8:41 AM ET

COMING IN:

The Hitmen are coming off a demoralizing 3-1 loss in Game 6 but neither team has been able to sustain any kind of momentum from game to game, or period to period, for that matter. This is Calgary's sixth Game 7 in franchise history, while the Warriors are playing in their second.

HEAD-TO-HEAD:

Each team has won two of three home games in the series while the Hitmen have outscored Moose Jaw 14-13. This is the second time the Hitmen and Warriors have met in the post-season with Calgary sweeping an opening-round set in 2000.

WHO'S HOT:

* HITMEN -- G Justin Pogge has been the backbone of the team all season. For the most part, he's been at his all-star form in the series (2.05 GAA, .931 save percentage and two shutouts).

* WARRIORS -- Win or lose, C Blair Jones has been the MVP of the series. The 19-year-old has been in on seven of his club's 13 goals and has been a dominant force every time he's on the ice.

SPECIAL TEAMS:

POWERPLAY -- Calgary 20.8% (16-77, 3rd); Moose Jaw 9.2% (6-65, 13th).

PENALTY KILLING -- Calgary 88.0% (6th); Moose Jaw 89.2% (4th).

INJURIES:

* HITMEN -- LW Kris Deines (thumb, gametime decision), D Dylan Yeo (wrist, six weeks).

* WARRIORS -- RW Troy Brouwer (knee, indefinite).

NOTABLES:

Moose Jaw has scored just once on the powerplay in the series (3.3%) ... LW Mike Reich (plus-1) is Calgary's only player on the positive side of the plus/minus ledger.
