The Riggers hit the road for Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals when they take on the Colorado Mammoth in the opener of the best-of-three series Thursday at 7:30 p.m. in Denver.

The Riggers took out Panther City 12-9 in the quarter-finals to get to the second round, while the defending champion Mammoth beat the one-seed San Diego Seals 13-12 to advance.

The clubs met three times in the regular season, with Calgary winning two of those meetings.

Riggers forward Tyler Pace knows this is going to be a tough battle.

“I mean, they won the championship last year as the underdogs with a hurt roster,” he said. “They seem to have all their guys healthy right now, they’ve got a strong goaltender, they’re ready to win and so are we. I wouldn’t be surprised if this goes three.”
