Rockets' tickets available
Tickets for the first two games of the Kelowna Rockets second round Western Hockey League playoff series with Seattle went on sale Monday morning through Select Your Tickets.
As they did in the opening round, the Rockets have home ice advantage in this second round series with the Thunderbirds.
The series opens Thursday night with game two Saturday.
Both games start at 7:05 p.m. from Prospera Place.
Tickets can be purchased online at the Prospera Place box office, or by phone at 250-762-5050.
This marks the second straight year the Rockets and T-Birds have met in the post season.
Last year, Seattle took a 3-0 series lead before the Rockets roared back to win in seven, becoming just the second team in WHL history to complete the rare come-back.
Five of the seven games in the series went to overtime, including the seventh and deciding game, won by a Tyson Baillie goal.
The Rockets and Thunderbirds both needed five games to get past the first round this year.
Kelowna beat Tri-City in five games with a 4-1 win on Friday night while Seattle ousted Everett in five games, ending that series on Saturday night.
