A major key to post-season success is the ability to win on the road. If that's the case, the Saskatoon Blades are in for a lengthy playoff run.

The Blades own the league's top road record at 28-5-1 and are on the brink of locking up top spot in the East Division.

"When we're on the road, we're usually a pretty loose team," winger Curtis Hamilton told the Saskatoon Star-Phoenix. "We kick the soccer ball around before the game and make jokes in the room."

The Blades' 28 road wins ties the WHL's all-time mark set by the 1999-2000 Calgary Hitmen.

RACE FOR FINAL SPOT HEATS UP

The race for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference is going down to the wire.

The Edmonton Oil Kings led the Prince Albert Raiders by two points heading into last night. Each team has two games remaining.

POSTMA HUGE PLUS THIS YEAR

Vancouver Giants defenceman Brent Regner and Calgary Hitmen blueliner Paul Postma lead the league in plus/minus at plus-63 ... Medicine Hat Tigers enforcer Matt McCue tops the penalty-minute charts with 191 PIMs.
