Win and you’re in, that’s the message tonight for the Penticton Vees in their BCHL Double Round-Robin game against Chilliwack at the SOEC. A win tonight over the Chiefs and the Vees will be the first out of the remaining three teams to book a spot in the Fred Page Cup Final.

“We have to treat it like a Game 7,” Vees GM / Head Coach Fred Harbinson told the Penticton Herald Tuesday morning. “We’d love to wrap it up at home where we’ve had so much success this season.”

The Vees find themselves at the front of the three-team field, after a 4-3 overtime victory in the Fraser Valley on Sunday. Demico Hannoun scored the game-tying and game-winning goals to push the Vees record to a perfect 2-0. Patrick Newell setup Hannoun eleven and a half minutes into overtime, on a great pass from behind the net.

Connor Chartier and Matt Serratore also scored for the Vees in the win and Hunter Miska stopped 31 of 34 shots for his 10th playoff win.

All three meetings between the Vees and Chiefs this season have gone past regulation; the Vees win two of them and both coming in Chilliwack. The two teams tied 1-1 in the only meeting at the SOEC and that was back on December 14th.

Monday the league announced Vees rear-guard Miles Gendron was named the BCHL Player of the Week, for the week ending March 29th. The Ottawa Senators third-round selection in 2014 had four assists in the Vees two wins last week. Gendron picked up three assists and first star honours in the Vees 4-1 Wednesday over Nanaimo, and assisted on the game-winning goal Sunday in Chilliwack. Gendron is the second-highest scoring defensemen in the BCHL playoffs, two points behind Nanaimo’s Nic Gushue. Demico Hannoun was given an honourable mention after tallying two goals and three points last week.

The Chiefs will be a desperate team tonight, as they’re trying to avoid going 0-3 in the Double Round-Robin. Chilliwack is playing their second road playoff game since March 18th in Prince George, when they swept the Spruce Kings in the Mainland Division Final; the Chiefs are 3-1 away from Prospera Centre in the post-season. They started their Double Round-Robin with a 7-3 loss in Nanaimo.

The Vees won’t have any changes to their line-up from Sunday, as Lewis Zerter-Gossage is still rehabbing an upper-body injury. Chilliwack were without Luke McColgan, Liam Ferguson, Kurt Black and Mark Esposito on Sunday; no word if any of the four return tonight.
