Regina Cougars Communications
REGINA - The University of Regina women's hockey team is at home for the second-straight weekend, with a pair of big matchups with the Alberta Pandas.
The final regular season meetings between the Cougars and Pandas have plenty of playoff implications, with the fourth-place Cougars just two points back of the Pandas and four off of the second-place Manitoba Bisons.
Home-and-home weekend crucial for Pronghorns
LETHBRIDGE - With their playoff lives hanging in the balance, the Lethbridge Pronghorn women's hockey team faces another home-and-home series this weekend, squaring off against the Mount Royal Cougars in a pair of virtually must win games.
The weekend series starts Friday night in Lethbridge, puck drops at 7:00pm at Nicholas Sheran Arena. Game two of the home-and-home series will go Saturday night at the Flames Community Arena in Calgary at 6:00pm. Both games will be streamed live on www.canadawest.tv.

CALGARY - Coming off a productive 1-1 weekend, the University of Calgary Dinos look to build on their strong play as they play two consecutive home games this weekend against the University of Saskatchewan Huskies.
Despite currently being outside of the playoff picture, the coaching staff and the players plan on fighting until the very end. "At the end of the day, were not out of the playoffs. As long as we have hope, were going to keep going" said head coach Danielle Goyette. "We have a lot of character on this team, we have to make sure we keep working hard and improving. As long as you're improving that's what matters."
