Cougars Update Playoff Schedule
Prince George, B.C. – The Prince George Cougars and Portland Winterhawks have finalized their first-round playoff series schedule.
Game one will still take place this Friday night at CN Centre starting at 7 p.m. However, game two has been moved from Saturday night at 7 p.m. to Sunday night at 5 p.m. (see playoff schedule below)
Considering it’s 14-hours by bus between Prince George and Portland, Cougars general manager Todd Harkins says they moved game two to Sunday to ensure both teams get enough rest between games.
So, how’s the GM feeling about his team’s chances heading into round one?
“I think when you’re are a division champ you should have the confidence going into a series but they are a good team,” he says. “They’ve got some weapons and you just have to be aware of their weapons and try to counter-attack how they try to play.”
Playoff tickets go on sale at 6 p.m. tonight.
