Justin Schultz and the Westside Warriors take 2-0 lead

The Westside Warriors opened up the BCHL playoffs in exhibition round play against the Trail Smoke Eaters this weekend and won both games.

On friday, Justin had an assist as the Warriors won going away 5-1. Things were much closer saturday night as Justin recorded an unassisted SH goal in the 3rd period, and the Warriors went on to win a come from behind game 3-2 in OT. (maybe Justin can bring some of that comeback attitude to the Badgers next year and break this OT futility streak) For his efforts saturday, Justin was named 2nd Star.

The series could be over tonight as the Warriors hit the road for Game 3.

One correction from an earlier post, Justin won the Interior Conf Top Defensmen award last season as well, not Rookie of the Year. So back to back awards for the young blue liner.

Mark Zengerle and Derek Lee are awaiting their opponents for the conference semis after their respective teams earned byes in the first round.
