Pre-Game Report: Giants vs. Blazers

The Vancouver Giants (30-26-7-3) will host the Kamloops Blazers (13-48-2-3) in the eighth and final meeting between the two teams in their season series on Wednesday at the Pacific Coliseum. The Giants are 7-0 against the Blazers this year.

Heading into Wednesday's action, the Giants sit in seventh in the Western Conference, seven points behind the sixth place Everett Silvertips. Vancouver is coming off back-to-back losses to the Kelowna Rockets last weekend. However, the G-Men did officially clinch a playoff spot on Saturday by virtue of the fact that the Prince George Cougars lost to the Victoria Royals. The Giants have now qualified for the post-season in 11 of their 13 seasons in the WHL.

The Blazers are dead last in the Western Conference standings, sitting 29 points behind ninth place Prince George. The Kamloops squad has dropped four in a row and six of the last seven games. The Blazers have only picked up one point in the season series with the Giants after a 4-3 shootout loss back on November 2nd. Kamloops is in the midst of a 10 game road trip as their home rink, the Interior Savings Centre, is currently playing host to the Canadian men's curling championships.
