Mount Pearl Blades first into SJJHL semifinals

Perhaps not surprisingly, the Mount Pearl Blades are the first team to advance to the second round of the St. John’s Junior Hockey League playoffs.

The first-place Blades, who lost just one game in the regular season, defeated the visiting Northeast Eagles 9-2 Tuesday night at the Glacier to claim their best-of-five quarter-final series 3-0.

The CBN Stars can become the second team to claim a semifinal berth if they defeat the St. John’s Caps Friday night (7:30) at the Bay Arena in Bay Roberts. The Stars hold a 2-0 lead in that series.

There is action in another quarter-final Friday. That will be at the Southern Shore Arena, where the Breakers take a 1-0 series lead into their 7:45 p.m. matchup with the Avalon Capitals.

Play in the final quarter-final resumes Saturday. In that one, the Trinity-Placentia Flyers and CBR Renegades are tied 1-1 heading into Game 3 (7 p.m.) at the Conception Bay South Arena.
