Last Two Weeks Should Be Interesting

The last 17 days of the WHL regular season will be interesting as teams continue to battle for the sixth, seventh and eighth place in the Eastern Conference.

Here's what's remaining on the schedule for Edmonton, Brandon, Prince Albert and Lethbridge. I didn't include Regina, not because I'm discounting them from sneaking into the playoffs, but with the Pats now 12 points behind Brandon I don't see them as a threat to the Wheat Kings playoff chances. Perhaps they still can be to the Raiders and/or Hurricanes.

Edmonton Oil Kings (29-29-2-5, 65 points; 7 games left)
Home (3): Mar.4 vs. Medicine Hat; Mar.15 vs. Lethbridge; Mar.18 vs. Red Deer
Away (4): Mar.5 at Medicine Hat; Mar.11 at Prince Albert; Mar.12 at Saskatoon; Mar.19 at Red Deer

Brandon Wheat Kings (28-29-1-7, 64 points; 7 games left)
Home (5): Mar.4 vs. Regina; Mar.9 vs. Saskatoon; Mar.11 vs. Saskatoon; Mar.12 vs. Prince Albert; Mar.19 vs. Moose Jaw
Away (2): Mar.5 at Regina; Mar.18 at Moose Jaw

Prince Albert Raiders (26-33-2-3, 57 points; 8 games left)
Home (4): Mar.5 vs. Kootenay; Mar.9 vs. Regina; Mar.11 vs. Edmonton; Mar.18 vs. Swift Current
Away (4): Mar.4 at Moose Jaw; Mar.12 at Brandon; Mar.16 at Calgary: Mar.19 at Swift Current

Lethbridge Hurricanes (21-30-5-8, 55 points; 8 games left)
Home (3): Mar.9 vs. Moose Jaw; Mar.12 vs. Medicine Hat; Mar.18 vs. Kootenay
