SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) - The Sioux City-Omaha rivalry will heat up on the ice this weekend. The Musketeers and Lancers play Game One of their best-of-five playoff series on Saturday in Omaha. Sioux City was 3-2 against Omaha during the regular season.

Over the last ten years, Sioux City has missed the playoffs four times, and hasn't gotten past the first round since losing the Clark Cup Finals in '05.

That's something they want to change.

"The older guys that were here last year, who had a tough season at times, turned it on in the end and their reward now is to play in the playoffs," said head coach Jay Varady. "I think it's a process that the coaching staff previously started in terms of getting those guys going in the right direction and now those guys are able to get a playoff berth."

Game one on Saturday starts at 7 o'clock. Game 2 on Sunday is at 5:00. The series comes back to Sioux City for game 3 next Friday.
