It was thought the WHL final could be a low scoring affair and if Game 1 was any indication, it will be.
The Everett Silvertips took the opener as they walked into Swift Current and beat the Broncos 2-1 in the opener.
Connor Dewar had the winning goal for the Western Conference champs as he deflected one past Stuart Skinner early in the 3rd.
Swift Current outshot Everett 35-25 with the league’s most outstanding player and goalie Carter Hart coming up large for the Silvertips.
They will look to take a 2-0 lead on Saturday night in a 7 PM start.
