Wolverines hanging on to fifth seed

A bit of a surge by the Swan Valley Stampeders last week, and a slight stumble by the Waywayseecappo Wolverines, has all but eliminated Wayway from fourth place and home-ice advantage for next month’s playoffs.

The Wolverines, though, remain very much in the hunt for the fifth seed. With a month left in the season, the importance of every game seems to get more and more magnified.

Swan Valley pulled nine points clear of Wayway and clinched a playoff spot in the process Sunday night with a wild 7-6 regulation victory over the Winnipeg Blues – a night after the Wolverines dropped a road decision to the same high-scoring team.
