Mem Cup update

Monday, May 14

WHL Final
Game 7: Vancouver at Medicine Hat
Series tied 3-3

OHL Final
Whalers win series 4-2

Maineiacs win series 4-0

Well, we now know who our Final 4 are in the Canadian junior hockey circuit, and strangely enough, two of them this go around are American teams. All that has to be decided is who wins the West, which is going to Game 7 tonight in the bustling burgh of Medicine Hat, Alberta.

Lewiston, meanwhile, really blew the doors off the competition in the Q this year, going 16-1 and sweeping three of their four playoff series en route to winning the league title. Netminder Jonathan Bernier is supposed to be one to watch, which makes the Maineiacs dark horse candidates in the tournament.

Kamloops-based correspondent Cousin BJ says this one is the West's to lose, and given he's our resident WHL expert, I'm going to have to go with him on this one.

Here is my original post detailing some of the notables set to take part in this year's tournament in Vancouver.

The Whalers' organization is flying out everyone in the front office to Vancouver for the tournament (at no cost to the employees). If only I was more than an intern...

Go Whalers!

I'm going to say Go Giants, because the Tigers knocked out my Hitmen in the last round. So...yeah, go Vancouver!

You have to admit, an All American Memorial Cup final would be pretty funny.
