Toronto ThunderHawks (21-19) vs. Wichita Wings (18-21)

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, a strong restart finisher who posted a team-high 139 points - 31 against Toronto, nine on Saturday - after being tabbed a developmental player in preseason. Toronto, which won three of four at home against the Wings, has weapons of its own. Mauro Biello, Giuliano Olivero, 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.
