The Rampage finished two points ahead of the Stampeders in the regular season standings with nine wins, three losses, one tie and three overtime losses to tie for first place in the five-team league with the Terrace River Kings (10W, 4L, 1T, 1OTL) and hold home-ice advantage in the series.

Williams Lake wrapped up its regular season (9W, 5L, 0T, 2OTL) with a 6-2 hammering of the Kitimat Ice Demons in Kitimat on Jan. 14.

Puck drop for Saturday’s contest goes at 7:30 p.m.

Game two and, if necessary, game three, will take place in Prince Rupert the following weekend, Feb. 3-4.
