Join the Corpus Christi IceRays tonight, April 19th, at 7:05 p.m. from the American Bank Center for Game 3 of the South Division Semifinals against the Shreveport Mudbugs in a series-clinching scenario. Game 4, if necessary, will be played Thursday at 7:05 p.m.

The IceRays return home for the first time in the postseason on the cusp of history following two wins against the Mudbugs to take a 2-0 series lead in the best-of-five set. The two wins were their first in junior franchise postseason history for a single series, and a win tonight would not only cement them in the South Division Finals but also mark just the second time in 19 years that the IceRays won their first playoff series, joining the 2000 Western Professional Hockey League (WPHL) franchise when they played at the Memorial Coliseum. If the IceRays win tonight, they will await their opponents and schedule for the next round, but a loss would set up a second game tomorrow night at the same time.

Thanks to the overwhelming support by the Corpus Christi community this season in reaching two million fans over the franchise's history, the IceRays are bringing back Winning Weekdays for playoff home games. Fans can purchase a ticket at the American Bank Center Box Office or IceRays Front Office prior to tonight's game and get a second ticket for free! This promotional offer is available for tonight as well as the "if necessary" game tomorrow. In addition, former WPHL professional player and all-time franchise leading goal scorer Kurt Wickenheiser will drop the ceremonial first puck prior to tonight's game.

Tickets are available at the American Bank Center Box Office or online through Ticketmaster.com. For group rates and suites, contact the IceRays at 361-814 PUCK. IceRays Full Season Ticket Holders who still need to pick up their tickets for the First Round can do so at the IceRays Front Office until 3:00 p.m. or at the IceRays Will Call window.
