The Manitoba Junior Hockey League announced Monday afternoon that the MJHL championship series will resume Thursday in Virden with the second game of the best of seven finals.

Virden holds a 1-0 lead in the series following their 2-1 victory over the Steinbach Pistons in the opening game of the series Friday night in Steinbach.

Game two was to be played Sunday night at Virden but was postponed due to the catasphrophic tragedy involving the Humboldt Broncos that saw 15 members of the team lose their lives.

The MJHL, in the release, said the league will be holding a ceremony prior to the 7:30 p.m. start of Thursday's game to pay tribute and to support the Humboldt Broncos organization.

Game three in the series will be played Saturday, April 14 at 7:30 p.m. in Steinbach with game five April 16 at Virden. All games in the series start at 7:30 p.m. The remaining games will be played Apr. 19 at Steinbach, Apr. 21 at Virden and then the seventh and deciding game, if necessary, Apr. 23 in Steinbach.
