The winner of that series will take on the winner of the Revelstoke-Kamloops series to decide which team advances to the Conference finals.

The Grizzlies have won their last four games against the Storm.

Revelstoke has two games remaining in the regular season. They take on the Osoyoos Coyotes (31-10-2-2) Friday at 7 p.m. at the Forum and the Summerland Steam (26-15-1-3) Saturday night at 7:30 p.m. also at the Forum.
