The Moncton Wildcats have advanced to the QMJHL final and the Saint John Sea Dogs are a win away from joining them there.
The Wildcats dispensed of the defending champion Drummondville Voltigeurs on the weekend, winning the best-of-seven final in five games with a 4-2 victory in Quebec.
“Every guy on our team is going to the league final for their first time so it’s pretty exciting,” Wildcats forward Scott Brannon, a Nova Scotian from Churchville, told the Moncton Times-Transcript. “We set our sights high when the playoffs began. We’re proud of what we accomplished so far. We’ll enjoy this feeling, but then we have to get refocused on whoever we face next.”
The Sea Dogs, meanwhile, are up 3-2 in the other semifinal and can close out the series tonight at 7 p.m. when they host Game 6 in New Brunswick.
