Chiefs still don't know semifinal opponent

The Kelowna Rockets, who lost the first three games of the series, forced a Game 7 in their Western Hockey League opening-round playoff against Seattle by beating the Thunderbirds 4-3 in overtime Tuesday night in Seattle. The second-seeded Rockets and seventh-seeded Thunderbirds will play the deciding game Wednesday night in Kelowna, British Columbia. The outcome will determine the Spokane Chiefs' opponent for the WHL Western Conference semifinals. If Seattle wins, the Chiefs will open Friday and Saturday at Kamloops, B.C. If Kelowna completes the major comeback, the Chiefs will open Friday and Saturday at Portland. Either way, the Chiefs will host Games 3 and 4 on April 9 and 10. Read story
