Just Notes
- No changes in the Wheat Kings' lineup for Game #2 tonight. That means D Spencer Galbraith (healthy) and F Dominick Favreau (healthy) are Brandon's scratches.

- The big news Saturday is that Medicine Hat all-star goaltender Tyler Bunz is out of the Tigers' lineup. Bunz apparently aggrevated the same upper-body injury in Game #1 that caused him to miss the final two games of the regular season last weekend against Calgary.

- Deven Dubyk makes his first career playoff start for Medicine Hat. Dubyk, who was originally selected by Brandon in the 11th round of the 2006 Bantam Draft, is no stranger to facing the Wheat Kings. He's started six of the eight regular season games between the two teams over the last two seasons including three of four this year.

- Alex Theriau (groin) returns to the Medicine Hat lineup tonight after he missed Game #1. Theriau had one goal, nine points and was +16 in 15 games with the Tigers after being acquired from Everett at the WHL trade deadline.

- One of the keys for the Wheat Kings in Game #2 tonight will be their start. Obviously, that's important every game but Brandon needs to be prepared for a very hungry Medicine Hat team out of the gate tonight.
