SHAWINIGAN, Que. — The London Knights are out to win their second MasterCard Memorial Cup in eight seasons, while the Shawinigan Cataractes are out to become the second team to ever win the tournament after being forced into the tiebreaker game.
Please join the BTN crew of Cam Charron, Sunaya Sapurji, Terry Doyle and Neate Sager for a livechat of all the action at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT. The game is nationally televised on Sportsnet and TVA Sports.
Shawinigan seems to have come into its own and doesn't seem like a tired team. London is only tired of having been in a holding pattern since Tuesday.
Shawinigan beat London 6-2 in their round-robin meeting on May 21. However, no team has been able to beat another club twice in this tournament. The Cataractes avenged earlier defeats to Edmonton, in the tiebreaker game, and Saint John, in the semifinal, to reach the final. The Knights have been off since Tuesday.
See you soonly. Please remember to BYOP — bring your own peanuts — since Shawinigan's Kirill Kabanov will be playing his final game of junior hockey.
