“Blizz win! Blizz win!” |  Blizzard win series 4-3
In one of the most tightly contested playoff series in MJHL history, the Blizzard scored in triple overtime to send the crowd into a frenzy and the club into the second round. Playoff hockey is often referred to as a war of attrition but this series was much more than that. In the span of 7-games the teams combined to score 36 goals,  put 539 shots on goal, and play an astounding 30 periods of hockey totaling 567:41 of playing time. Keep in mind, the Blizzard were down 2-0 after the first two games of the series and won in double overtime during game four to avoid going down 3-1 in the series.

It’s a series that will be talked about for years to come. One team had to win and the Blizzard showed a lot of heart and used the home crowd to energize them, pushing them to victory. Sebastian Hamming’s point shot was blocked before Riley See buried his third playoff goal sending the roof off the Roy H. Johnson and keeping the journey to the Turnbull Cup alive for the Blizzard. It goes without saying that the Kings, and especially Cole Sheffield, have nothing to hang their heads about. They showcased incredible heart and determination throughout the series. There’s no time to soak in and enjoy one of the most emotional wins in franchise history as the Blizzard will have a very quick turnaround and head to Southeastern Manitoba where the Steinbach Pistons have been waiting and watching for days.
