Although you can never say that the second game of a best of five series is a must-win situation, it's very close to that for the Airdrie Thunder as they prepare to meet the Blackfalds Wranglers tonight (February 23).  

After losing the opener at home 3 - 2 on Wednesday night, another loss tonight would put the Thunder in a tough, uphill battle with games three and four set for Blackfalds.

Tonight's game goes at the Ron Ebbesen Arena starting at 8:15 pm. 

Also on tonight's Heritage Junior Hockey League playoff schedule, the Cochrane Generals travel to Okotoks for their first game of a best of five against the Bisons.

Game two of that series is also set for Okotoks tomorrow night. 

The Coaldale Copperheads take a one game to none lead into tonight's contest with the High River Flyers in Coaldale.
