It’s game day for the Cougars. Expectations are high as the team heads in to game 1 of their first round series with Portland tonight at the CN Centre. It’s the first time since the 1999-2000 Season that the Cougars have started a playoff series at home. It should be a tight series considering the teams split their season series 2-2, with 3 of the 4 games decided by 1 goal. The Cats looked pretty loose at practice this morning, but playoff time always brings about a few nerves.
