The last time the Kodiaks needed to win three straight playoff games to continue their season was 2011 and it was against the Okotoks Oilers. That post-season, led by the goaltending of Dalyn Flette and the timely scoring of John Lidgett, the club won games 5, 6 and 7 to advance past the Oilers in the best-of-7 AJHL South Division Final. After a 7-1 loss in Okotoks on Friday night, as the Oilers kept home ice advantage in the first round best-of-5 series, the team will face an elimination game for the 26th time in the franchise's 19-year playoff history. The Kodiaks are 12-13 when facing elimination, 8-6 on home ice with their season on the line and 3-1 vs Okotoks in that position.
