  2. The provincial rivals meet in the postseason for the first time since an epic conference finals in 2014.
  3. The 2014 Finals featured eight extra periods after games of two, four and two overtimes.
  4. Saskatchewan's 2-1 series win in 2014 is the only conference championship the Huskies have won.

By The Numbers

2 - Huskie forward Kaitlin Willoughby has returned her scoring touch to the lineup with 2 goals last weekend. Willoughby missed 4 games while at the FISU Games. 

4 - Regina recorded just 1 win in its last 4 games of the season.

9 - Saskatchewan can look forward to playing at home in Rutherford Rink where they posted 9 wins this season. 

15 - The series could turn into a battle of who gets out to the early lead. When leading after 20 minutes, the two teams have combined to win 15 games, while losing just 3 times.
