Chiefs aim to end series on the road

The Spokane Chiefs are one win away from advancing to the second round of the Western Hockey League playoffs. The Chiefs lead the Tri-City Americans 3-1 with Game 5 ready to begin in 30 minutes at Toyota Center in Kennewick. The Americans will have to make due without goaltender Luke Lee-Knight, their Game 3 winner. Lee-Knight made 41 saves Thursday during Game 4 before he suffered a shoulder injury in overtime during a collision with the Chiefs' Adam Helewka. Troy Trombley, who lost Games 1 and 2, replaced Lee-Knight and allowed Blake Gal's winning goal in overtime. Trombley will start tonight. All four Western Conference first-round series stand at 3-1 and could end tonight. The Eastern Conference has completed its first-round series. In the next round, Calgary will play Red Deer and Edmonton will meet Medicine Hat.
