North Delta Devils start Junior B playoffs tonight in Ladner

Starting tonight (Tuesday), the North Delta Devils are playing games which mean something.

After a string of mean-nothing games to wrap up the regular season, the Devils travel to the Ladner tonight for the first game of their Pacific International Junior Hockey League best-of-seven quarterfinal series against the Delta Ice Hawks.

Game two is tomorrow night, also in the Ladner Leisure Centre, with the Devils hosting games three and four at the Sungod Arena at 7:30 p.m. Friday and 6:45 p.m. Saturday.

The Devils played their last two games of the regular season last week on home ice at the Sungod Arena.

The North Vancouver Wolf Pack blanked the Devils 2-0 on Wednesday night, scoring both goals in the second period.

On Saturday, Stefan Burzan scored two goals, including the winner in a 4-3 victory over the Aldergrove Kodiaks. affiliate player Julian Feljo and Stephen Campbell also tallied for the Devils.
