The Victoria Grizzlies must win tonight or they will be eliminated from the playoffs. If the Grizzlies are going to win this series it will have to take the full seven games to do so and four consecutive wins. Coming off a win in game four, the Grizzlies will look to feed off of that success in game five Friday night at The Q Centre in Colwood.

Ryan Nolan

Ryan Nolan has been a key player for the Grizzlies, he has taken on that energy player role that has been key to the team’s playoff run. He has been in this role all season but he has really stepped it up in the playoffs, much like the regular season, his stats don’t show how important his play is to the Grizzlies.

Chap Is Back:

Kurtis Chapman returned to the team for game three, in Alberni Valley and gave the Grizzlies a fighting chance and as the game went into overtime, he made many key saves to keep the Grizzlies in the game but eventually lost. In game four, however, Chapman earned the second star honours as the Grizzlies won  4 -1 to force game five.
