The Moose Jaw Warriors are moving on in the WHL Playoffs.
Brayden Burke’s power-play goal at the 16:10 mark of the 3rd period was the winner as Moose Jaw held off a stubborn Prince Albert Raiders squad with a 5-4 win.
The victory sets up a much-anticipated battle with the Swift Current Broncos in Round 2 that starts Friday at Mosaic Place.
The other Round 2 matchup in the East has Brandon versus Lethbridge.
In the West, Portland beat Spokane 3-1 to take that series in 7 and set up a matchup against Everett in the next round. Cody Glass had a goal and two assists for the winners.
Victoria beat Vancouver 4-3 in Game 7 of that matchup to send them to the next round against Tri-Cities. Matthew Phillips had two goals and an assist for the Royals.
