The Nelson Junior Leafs and Castlegar Rebels have known for a few weeks that they would be matching up in the first round of the playoffs, now they know exactly when the puck will drop.
The Leafs finished third in the Neil Murdoch Division after the regular season wrapped up this weekend. The Rebels finished 13 points ahead in second place and will hold the home ice advantage in the seven game division semi final.
The puck will drop on the series on Friday night at the Castlegar Community Complex. Game two will be the next night in the Rebels home barn.
The series will shift to Nelson on Monday and Tuesday for Games Three and Four. If necessary Game Five will be March 1 in Castlegar, Game Six March 2 in Nelson and Game Seven March 3 in Castlegar.
