1-BATTLEFORDS NORTH STARS (1) 41-8-2
On cruise control and trying to ensure everyone is healthy for the first round of the playoffs
2-FLIN FLON BOMBERS (2) 33-11-5
One big difference from this team compared to Bomber teams of the past is their road record (17-5-4, league best).
3-NIPAWIN HAWKS (3) 28-19-3
Now that they’ve latched on to the three seed, one has to think they are favored to keep it down the stretch.
4-YORKTON TERRIERS (4) 28-19-1-1
It’s like beating a dead horse, but if they could keep the shots to less than 40 a night, they’d be almost impossible to defeat. Bond has seen 40 or more in a game 15 times this season.
5-LA RONGE ICE WOLVES (5) 26-18-3-2
It looks more and more like they’ll play Yorkton or Melfort in round one, but who will have home ice advantage?
6-ESTEVAN BRUINS (7) 24-21-3-1
Bruins have won three straight and have the inside track on finishing 7th and a first round date with the team furthest away from them geographically, Flin Flon. With some help, they can still place higher than that.
7-MELFORT MUSTANGS (6) 24-16-6-3
Winless in four, two wins in their last ten, and it’s the worst time of the year to play your worst hockey.
8-HUMBOLDT BRONCOS (8) 22-20-7-2
They’ve dropped two in a row and have played two more games than Estevan and hold a tenuous one point advantage in the standings.
9-KINDERSLEY KLIPPERS (9) 20-23-6-1
Still hanging on to hopes of a playoff spot, but five points back of the Bruins and Estevan isn’t opening the door.
10-WEYBURN RED WINGS (12) 19-28-1-2
A win and a shootout loss this past week but it’s going to be too little too late.
11-MELVILLE MILLIONAIRES (11) 15-27-2-4
Magic number to be officially eliminated is two.
12-NOTRE DAME HOUNDS (10) 17-27-3-2
Have dropped three in a row and only math is keeping them in the playoff mix.
