Game 3 is slated for John Rhodes Community Centre in Sault Ste. Marie this Saturday at 7 p.m.
Meanwhile, no. 2 seed Kapuskasing heads to Sudbury down 2-0 after the Flyers stunningly lost a pair of home games to the third-ranked Nickel Capital Wolves on the weekend, by 4-3 and 5-3 margins.
Game 3 is scheduled for this Saturday night at 7:00 at Gerry McCrory Countryside Arena in Sudbury.
