The Okotoks Oilers are coming home with two wins on the road over the Calgary Canucks in the semi-final best of seven, round of the AJHL playoffs.

Forward Regan Doig, says they need to keep the pressure up. "We are not worried, we're just going with it,  it is coming on the right way for us right now."

Going home with two wins is a big advantage in this playoff series.

Doig added it is nice playing only 40 minutes away from Okotoks and in a rink where they only lost one game this year.

"It's just confidence, that's all it is."

Game three is Monday night at the Pason Centennial arena in Okotoks, puck drops at 7 p.m.
