Kyle Hayton saved 73 of 77 shots in the first two games of the Musketeers' playoff matchup with Omaha.
SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -
The Sioux City Musketeers haven't won a first-round playoff series since 2005.
But after taking the first two games in Omaha, the Muskies sit one game away from moving on to the Western Conference Final.
Now, with two chances to close out the series at home, one of the main questions is what Sioux City will do between the pipes for game three.
Kyle Hayton started the first two games of the series and has been stellar, saving 73 of the 77 shots he's faced in the two wins.
But the Muskies have another capable goalie in Collin Olson.
Olson has saved over 92 percent of the shots fired his way this season with a 2.31 goals against average, and Sioux City went 12-3-1 with Olson in goal during the regular season.
As for who will start game three, the Muskies have yet to make that decision.
"Well, it's the same that we've always done," said head coach Jay Varady. "We'll decide on Thursday evening after practice just like we've done all year. We talked about it before the series started, and now that we're in the series, nothing will change. We have two good goaltenders and any guy could play any night."
Puck drop for game three of the series is 7:00 on Friday.
