The Red Deer Rebels kicked off Game 1 off their seven game playoff series against the Brandon Wheat Kings last night on a high note. The Rebels took a 5-0 victory last night. 

This is the first time in six years that the Rebels met the Wheat Kings in the WHL playoffs. Last year, the Rebels were taken out of the play offs early by the Prince Albert Raiders. This year, the Rebels are looking for their first title in 21 years.  

Game 2 kicks off tonight at 7 PM.
