The critical Game 5 of the Avalon East Senior Hockey League final goes 7:30 tonight at the Danny Cleary Community Centre in Harbour Grace.

The Tapper’s Northeast Eagles and Harbour Grace Ocean Enterprises CeeBee Stars are tied 2-2 in their best-of-seven series, meaning whichever team wins tonight is only one win away from the league championship.

The Eagles evened things up last Friday night at the Jack Byrne Arena in Torbay with a 4-3 decision on Chris Sparkes’s third-period power play goal.

Game 5 had been set for Saturday night in Harbour Grace, but was postponed because of the windstorm which hit the province.
