Ice Hawks and Sockeyes set for PJHL semifinals on Tuesday
The Delta Ice Hawks will face the Richmond Sockeyes in the Pacific Junior Hockey League playoff semifinals after the Sockeyes 4-3 win over the North Delta Devils Wednesday at Minoru Arenas.
The best-of-seven playoff begins Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. at Ladner Leisure Centre. The winner will go on to face either the Abbotsford Pilots or Aldergrove Kodiaks for the PJHL playoff title.
This will be the second year in a row the Sockeyes and Ice Hawks have met in the playoff semifinals. Richmond won the opening game last year, 4-2, but lost Game 2 by a 3-2 count in overtime and eventually the series in six games. The Ice Hawks then went on to defeat the Pilots in the playoff final.
Delta finished two points behind Richmond in the 2012-13 regular season.
