For the second time in this year’s playoffs, the Moose Jaw Warriors and Swift Current Broncos will play in a Game 7.

Both teams needed seven games to dispatch of their first round opponents and now they will meet for their own do-or-die deciding game on Monday night at Mosaic Place.

The Warriors forced the seventh game with a comeback 3-2 win in triple overtime on Saturday night in Swift Current. They overcame a 2-0 deficit in the third period before Jayden Halbgewachs won the game with his fourth of the playoffs.

“We’ve got the momentum right now and we’ve just got to build off that,” said Halbgewachs after Game 6. “We just need to find a way to score goals, we’ve been a little slow getting going and these guys block a lot of shots, so just getting pucks through to the net and getting bodies there and we’ll be fine.”

This is the sixth Game 7 in franchise history for the Warriors, who have a 2-3 record all-time in those decisive games.

One of those three losses came at the hands of the Broncos in their first round series last season, with Swift Current winning 3-2 at Mosaic Place after the Warriors had won Game 6 at the Credit Union Iplex.

Coming into this season, the only other Game 7 win for the Warriors came in the same season that they made their only appearance in the WHL Final.

Three of the six games so far in this year’s series between the Warriors and Broncos have needed extra time, including double overtime in Game 4 and Saturday’s triple overtime thriller in Game 6. The top-two teams in the regular season have not disappointed in this second round series.

“Game 7 going to be another fun game, another test and we’re looking forward to it,” said Warriors goalie Brody Willms, who made 58 saves in Game 6’s win.

Tickets sold-out for Game 7 in under 40 minutes on Sunday morning.

Puck drops at 7 p.m. The Pre-Game Show will be on the air at 6:40 p.m. on Country 100.
