It's been a stressful series for both fans, as outside of Game 1, the Firebirds and Wranglers have been pretty even all series, which has carried over from the regular season. The two teams tied in their regular season series at 4-4, with some close games.

The Pacific Division Finals have been more of a highlight of great goalkeeping than high scores.

The Firebirds were shut out in Game 4, but the Wranglers only managed to score one goal thanks to Goalkeeper Joey Daccord, who had 31 saves in the game.

Seattle Kraken players Chris Driedger (goalkeeper), Jasper Frödén (forward) and Tye Kartye (forward) returned to the team for Game 4. Frödén, 28, and Kartye, 22, are among the team's leading scorers. Kartye tallied three goals and two assists in 10 games during the NHL Playoffs for the Seattle Kraken.

They'll look to make a bigger impact in a massive game 5.
