Oil Kings - Knights minutes away

Edmonton takes on London at the Mastercard Memorial Cup tonight and there is so much on the line.  Basically it's like starting over as all teams are 1-1, and each team still has a shot at going straight to the final or ending up in the tie breaker.

These teams are pretty similar, I give the individual talent to Austin Watson of London, but the depth of talent to Edmonton.

London has Scott Harrington and Jared Tinordi as the best shut down pair in the tournament and both goaltenders, while they have yet to do it, can steal a game.

But all the talent won't matter if the ice is bad again.  It rained all day here, meaning the humidity could be worse, and the fog was halfway up the glass when we arrived.

Puck drop in 20 minutes, listen to Corey Graham and Kent Simpson with the call on the TEAM 1260 or watch on Sportsnet.  And of course, Global Sports has all your hilites and post game reaction.  I'll be going live at 6:45 pm mst with an update on the game, and some clips from Kevin Lowe who addressed the media this afternoon.
