The Trail Smoke Eaters host the hottest team in the BCHL tonight when they take on the Vernon Vipers at the Cominco Arena.

The Vipers have won five games in a row including a 4-3 win over the Penticton Vees on Saturday, after clinching  a playoff spot in a 3-2 victory over Salmon Arm on Friday.

Who they face in Round-1 of the playoffs is still to be determined with the Vees and West Kelowna Warriors tied for top spot.

The fourth seed will likely be the Merritt Centennials who hold a five point lead over Salmon Arm.

Trail will finish the season on a positive note, as the organization will honour long-time public address announcer Tiger Milburn in a ceremony before the game Friday against the West Kelowna Warriors. Milburn has been on the mic for the Smokies for 50 years so come early and show your appreciation for Tiger.

The puck drops against Vernon tonight at 7:30 p.m.
