The Red Deer Rebels beat the Medicine Hat Tigers 5-2 on Friday night to eliminate the Tigers 4-1 in their best-of-seven series.

Red Deer hit the road Friday night and never looked back. They scored two goals in the first period to chase the Tigers goalie out of the net after just nine shots and seven saves.

Three more unanswered Rebels goals would have the game 5-0 after 2 and half periods. Medicine Hat would get the 5200 fans going with a couple third period goals but it wasn't enough to win the game and keep the series alive.

The Rebels would once again go the entire game with goalie Chase Wutzke who stopped 36 of 38 shots.
