Key players: Spokane: C Trent Whitfield (32 goals, 41 assists), RW Marian Cisar (29, 33), C/RW John Cirjak (31, 50), LW Greg Leeb (26, 54), D Hugh Hamilton (7, 37), GK Aren Miller (3.26 goals-against) or Nolan McDonald (1.00), LW Joe Cardarelli (33, 36), D Adam Magarrell (5, 23), D Brad Ference (5, 19).

At a glance: The good news is the Chiefs can clinch third in the West by winning two of their last three games. The bad news? Two of their last three are with the surprise team of the WHL, the T-Birds, who have wrapped up second place in what was supposed to be a transition year. Seattle should be even better next season.
