For those who are wondering, I have figured out what Surrey's magic number in relation to eliminating the Express from the playoffs.
According to my calculations, the number is 12. Any combination of Eagles wins and Expess losses adding up to 12 will officially knock the Express out of the race for a Coastal Conference playoff spot.
Heading into this weekend's action, Burnaby has 34 points through 47 games. Surrey has 48 points in 45 games this season.
This weekend, Burnaby hosts Powell River tonight and Trail Sunday afternoon.
Trail will visit Surrey Saturday and Powell River will visit Sunday.
