Daily Dose of the Dub: Giants force Game 7 in WHL Championship Series

WHL Championship will have a Game 7 on Monday

If you had told people after Game 3 of the Prince Albert-Vancouver series that we would be seeing a Game Seven you would have been called crazy, but that is exactly what is happening after a 4-2 win for the Vancouver Giants over the Prince Albert Raiders on Sunday night.  It’s the first time the WHL Championship series has gone to Game 7 since the Edmonton Oil Kings beat the Portland Winterhawks in Game Seven of the 2014 WHL Championship Series by a score of 4-2. Those Oil Kings went on to win the Memorial Cup in London, Ontario. The Giants and Raiders won’t get a break before Game Seven as they head back to the ice on Monday in Prince Albert.
