The P.E.I. Rocket final regular season home game will see the Saint John Sea Dogs come to town on Wednesday night.
Game time at the Charlottetown Civic Centre is 7 p.m.
The team are coming off a big 5-3 victory over the Moncton Wildcats on Sunday in a game which attracted a large crowd.
The playoff picture is still a little up in the air, but it looks like P.E.I. is most likely to face Acadie-Bathurst or Gatineau. However, the final three games will be important for the final placement in the standings.
Going into Wednesday’s game P.E.I.’s top three scorers are Ben Duffy with 77 points (35 goals, 42 assists); Andrej Nestrasil with 64 points (19 goals, 45 assists) and Philippe Paradis, 53 points (23 goals and 30 assists).
Saint John’s big three include Jonathan Huberdeau with a whopping 100 points (41 goals, 59 assists), Zack Phillips, 92 points (38 goals and 54 assists) and Michael Kirkpatrick with 79 points (29 goals and 50 assists).
