Listeners will be able to begin listening at 7:15 p.m. for the pre-game show. The game will start at 7:30 p.m. Fans will have the choice of tuning in on the AM dial using their radios or by streaming the audio online with their computers or mobile devices.
The Delisle Chiefs have been enjoying an incredible season in the PJHL after finishing as runners up in last year's playoffs. Currently, the Chiefs are 26-1-0-0 and are rolling on a 13-game winning streak heading into their next game tonight against the Saskatoon Quakers at 7:45 p.m. from Saskatoon's Rod Hamm Arena.
In the other corner, the Rage are in fifth place in the Bob Dybvig Division which they share with the Chiefs. West Central is in a battle for third place with the Saskatoon Westleys and Saskatoon Royals, separated by 8 points from the Westleys.
Although, the Rage are on a 3-game slide and are looking to shake that off with their next games this weekend against clubs below them in the standings — the Prince Albert Titans (Saturday at 7:30 p.m.) and the Carrot River Outback Thunder (Sunday at 6:00 p.m.).
