The North Delta Devils now know what the Delta Ice Hawks have been feeling the last two games.

Faced with two must-win situations, the Ice Hawks avoided elimination from the Pacific International Junior Hockey League playoffs and have rallied from a 3-1 series deficit. And with their best-of-seven series with the Devils going to a deciding game, North Delta will also be playing with their season on the line tomorrow night in Vancouver.

The Ice Hawks blanked North Delta 4-0 Wednesday night at the Sungod Arena, getting two goals from North Delta Minor Hockey product Anthony Brito, and one each from Ryan Cuthbert and Grange Gordon.

The Ice Hawks led 1-0 and 2-0 at the period breaks, outshooting the Devils 43-39.

Game seven goes tomorrow (Friday) at the Kerrisdale Arena at 8:15 p.m.
