Weyburn is still buzzing with excitement after the dramatic finish to game four of the Richardson Pioneer Weyburn Red Wings series with the Humboldt Broncos. A back-and-forth game wrapped up with an overtime winner from Nick Kovacs to even the series up at 2-2.  

“For a middle-of-a-week game, I think we had close to a thousand people there,” said Nick Nielsen, the voice of the Red Wings and the team's office and public relations manager. “I know at one point, I think they actually helped call a penalty that wasn’t going to get called.” 

Loud is probably the best way to describe the crowd Wednesday night, and it is expected the crowd Sunday will be even louder as the Red Wings play one of the biggest games for the franchise in the past 10 years. While game five is Friday night in Humboldt, game six in Weyburn Sunday will either be to clinch the series or to force a game seven.  

"We’re looking forward to it,” goaltender Dazza Mitchell said of game six. “If we can go into Humboldt (Friday) and take that one, then that makes game six here even bigger. But either way, coming back here for game six is going to be huge. I hope everyone comes out again.” 

Nielsen is hoping for a big crowd as well, and the team will be doing what they can to make sure tickets are available. Tickets for game six will go on sale in the Red Wings ticket office from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. today. The office will be closed for Good Friday tomorrow, but will then be back open Saturday from 11:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. The office will re-open Sunday from 9:00 a.m. until the start of the game.  

“If you’re a season ticket holder, and you want to reserve your seat, you need to do so by 5:00 p.m. on Saturday,” Nielsen added. Aside from the reserved seating for season ticket holders, all other tickets will be rush seating.  

There are also some festivities planned for the game Sunday as well. There will be the Chuck-A-Puck during the second intermission, with proceeds going to the Muscular Dystrophy Association. As well, the Canterra Seeds Cup will be in the building, with clappers being handed out to the first 300 fans through the door.
