The Fort Saskatchewan Junior B Hawks dominated on home ice to start playoffs.
Friday night (Feb.9), the Hawks topped the Strathcona Bruins 8-1.
Fort Saskatchewan got on the board twice in the first two minutes thanks to Dylan Dorval and Jarrel Pinchuk.
The scoring wouldn't stop there as Dorval finished off the hat trick, Justin Ferris added two, Gavin Phelan and Darren Tardif each netted one.
Offence was highlighted by a massive five point night by Tardif, who had a goal and four assists.
"Things are starting to come together. The biggest thing is have four lines going, we're confident throwing any line out there," said Tardif. "Basically we just have to play Hawks’ hockey, just keep playing the way we've been playing is key."
Micah Bonneville had one of his best outings of the season, making 37 saves in the win.
"Lately, we've been giving it everything we got headed into playoff and things have been working out for us," added Tardif.

The Hawks now lead the best of three series 1-0, game two goes Sunday afternoon at the Strathcona Olympiette Centre, puck drop is 3:30 p.m.
