The Steelheads are headed West to open their best-of-3 playoff series Saturday.

Top-ranked Smithers will play the Ice Demons in Kitimat, a team the fish beat three times in the season.

Head Coach Tom DeVries is isn’t letting past successes get to his head. He knows anything can happen in the post-season.

“Try to take that out of your mind that it’s a different game being in the playoffs. You just got to play hockey and hopefully score more goals than them,” he says.

Puck drop is tonight at 8 PM in Kitimat.

Fans staying in town this weekend can watch Game 2 at the Civic Centre next Saturday at 7:30 PM.
