CORNER BROOK The journey towards a repeat continues on familiar ice for the Colemans Western Kings this weekend.
The Kings will be looking to put the St. John’s Maple Leafs on the brink of elimination in Game 3 Friday 8:30 p.m. at the Pepsi Centre.
The Kings won the first two games of the Newfoundland and Labrador Major Hockey League best-of-seven semifinal series last weekend in the capital city.
Jamie Penney’s goal at 11:35 of the second overtime period gave the defending champions a 5-4 Sunday afternoon at Rogers Bussey Arena.
Jordan Richards, chosen the league’s most gentlemanly and effective player, had a goal and two helpers for the Kings in Sunday’s win.
The Kings opened the series with a 5-4 win over the Maple Leafs one night earlier at Feildian Gardens.
Game 4 of the series is scheduled for Saturday 8:30 p.m. and Game 5, if necessary, will be played Sunday 1:30 p.m. at the Pepsi Centre.
The other league semifinal featuring top speed Central IcePak and fourth-place Tri-Pen Osprey resumes this weekend with the series tied at one game apiece.
