The Musketeers start the Western Conference Finals in Waterloo on Friday night.
WATERLOO, Iowa (KTIV) -
The Western Conference finals between the Musketeers and Waterloo starts on Friday. Sioux City was one of the few teams to have success against the Black Hawks.
Waterloo is the top seed and they swept Sioux Falls in round one, scoring an amazing 20 goals in the three wins. The Muskies got past Omaha in four games, clinching on Saturday night.
The Black Hawks went 3-3 against the Musketeers in the regular season, so this should be a great series.
"If you look at the times we stumbled, they did a good job of keeping our offense in front of them," said Waterloo head coach P.K. O'Handley. "We didn't do a great job of penetrating or getting behind their defensemen. I think it's crucial that part of the chess match happens, and we did everything we can to play behind their D and make them turn."
"Every time we play Sioux City it's going to be a tough game," said Waterloo defenseman Brandon Montour. "They want to be a team that beats us. I know they're a physical team . Sometime we had trouble taking penalties and stuff like that. It's going to be a good series."
Sioux City will be on the road for games 1 and 2 on Friday at Saturday. The puck drops at 7:05 and the Sports Fource crew will be there.
The Muskies will host game three on Friday, May 2nd. Game 4, if necessary, will be Sunday May 4th. Game 5 would be back in Waterloo.
The Muskies leave Thursday afternoon for Waterloo.
