The Oil Kings are hoping the fans come out in waves for game six tomorrow night against the Portland Winterhawks. Edmonton has a chance to close out the series and take home their second Ed Chynoweth Cup.
“I think it’s exciting,” Oil Kings Head Coach Derek Laxdal said. “Anytime a championship series comes to a city or a town I think it’s important for the city to jump on board and support the program. That being said, it’s three years in a row now where we’ve had great fan support and we’ve had great fan support on short notices. I hope everybody brings their mothers out for mother’s day to watch the game tomorrow night.”
The Oil Kings said as of 1 p.m. Saturday that they had sold over 8,000 tickets.
