Gallery+Story: El Paso Rhinos set to take on OKC Blazers in WSHL Division Final Series

The El Paso Rhinos continue their journey to defend their Thorne Cup title as they head into the Mid-Western Division final of the Western States Hockey League playoffs on home ice starting Friday night.

This weekend, the three-time champion Rhinos, in front of a possible record 22nd consecutive sellout crowd, will battle longtime rival Oklahoma City Blazers in a best-of-3 series at the El Paso County Coliseum Events Center (4100 East Paisano.)

The Rhinos (42-8-3) shut out the Dallas Snipers this past weekend, winning two straight games, 11-0 and 3-0, to move into the final. Meanwhile, the Blazers (39-11-1) earned their spot after defeating the Northern Colorado Eagles, 2-3, 3-2 and 5-1.

The Rhinos have beat the Blazers three of their five matchups this season.

Game one is set for 7 p.m. Friday, March 29, followed by Game 2 at 7 p.m. Saturday, March 30. If a third game is necessary, it will take place at 4:30 p.m. Sunday, March 31. The winner moves on to the Thorne Cup Finals in Ogden, Utah, April 9-13.

Tickets start at $5 and are available at the El Paso County Coliseum Box Office, all Ticketmaster outlets, by phone at 800-745-3000, online and at the Coliseum Events Center Ticket Booth, which opens one hour before game time.

Free ticket vouchers also are available at several of the team sponsor locations, including Rudy’s Country Store and Bar-B-Q and Lube ’N Go.
