The Brandon Wheat Kings will try to draw on their track record at home to get back into their Western Hockey League playoff series with the Edmonton Oil Kings.

After losing the first two games of the best-of-seven Eastern Conference semifinal in Edmonton, being shut out both times, the Wheat Kings host Game 3 tonight and Game 4 on Wednesday at Westman Place (7 p.m., both nights).

The Wheat Kings clinched their first-round playoff series against the Regina Pats with a pair of home-ice wins and head coach/general manager Kelly McCrimmon hopes the same formula will give Brandon some momentum in this series.

"We’ve been good at home all season," said McCrimmon, whose team went 21-12-2-1 at Westman Place for 45 points during the regular season, only two points less than Edmonton managed on home ice. "We were good at home the two games that we played versus Regina, and you look for whatever you can to give you energy or give you momentum, and that’s what home ice can do."

As of Monday afternoon, a little more than 2,500 tickets had been sold for tonight’s game.
