The Sea Dogs advanced to the semis after sweeping the Baie-Comeau Drakkar in the quarterfinals, a series that ended one week ago tonight. The Sagueneens are coming off a stunning series win over the Memorial Cup host Shawinigan Cataractes that went the full seven games.
Chicoutimi has seen plenty of action so far this post-season. They were the only team unable to sweep their opening round playoff series, needing six games to eliminate the Acadie-Bathurst Titan. The Sags have played 13 playoff games this year compared to Saint John’s eight.
The Sags had a 2-1-0-0 record against Saint John in the regular season while the Dogs were 1-1-0-1 against Chicoutimi. This should be a great series.
Tickets to Games 1 and 2 are already on sale. Seats for Friday’s game are listed as “limited.”
