National Conference

Wichita Wings (18-21) at Toronto ThunderHawks (21-19)

Tonight: Opener of best-of-three series, 7:35.

Regular-season series: T-Hawks won, 4-3.

Outlook: The Wings took two of the teams' last three meetings, including a 19-13 victory in Saturday's regular-season finale. Task for Toronto? Stop Wichita forward Dino Delevski, who posted a team-high 139 points - 31 against Toronto, nine on Saturday - after being tabbed a developmental player in preseason. For Toronto, which won three of four at home against the Wings, Mauro Biello, Giuliano Oliviero, and Chris Stathopoulos each reached the 100-point plateau. The teams played one of the season's most peculiar games on Oct. 28, a 23-20 Wichita win. The Wings led 17-0 before the ThunderHawks' rally ended on a three-point shot off a goalpost at the buzzer.
