Wranglers season on the line in the desert
Wednesday night is do-or-die time for the Calgary Wranglers.
The team is in the California desert, preparing for the fourth game of their best-of-five series against the Coachella Valley Firebirds in Palm Springs.
The Firebirds took a 2-1 series lead with a 3-2 win in triple overtime Monday night.
Calgarian Ryker Evans scored the game-winner for Coachella Valley.
The Wranglers had plenty of chances against the Firebirds Monday, but after jumping out to a 2-0 lead, they couldn't get a single puck past Firebirds goaltender Joey Daccord, who they pelted with 61 shots on goal.
As a result, the Wranglers now need wins tonight and in a deciding fifth game Friday if they want to move on.
Puck drop tonight is 8 p.m.
