It was an emotional start to the 2022 WHL Playoffs for the Red Deer Rebels over the weekend. They now head off to Brandon with their round one series tied.

Friday night they kicked everything off with a 5-0 win against The Wheaties.

Saturday night, it was a different story and a much different outcome. Although the Rebels outshot Brandon 39-30, had more scoring chances, and even had a penalty shot that was denied, they still ended up losing the game 2-1 in overtime.

That means the Rebels will now hit the road for a couple games in Brandon with the series tied at one game apiece.

Game 3 goes Tuesday night at 6pm, and game 4 on Wednesday. They will return home to play game five Friday night back at The Peavey Mart Centrium.
