The winner of Thursday's contest will move on to play in the Memorial Cup semifinals on Friday, May 26.

The Petes dropped a 3-2 decision to the Giants on Tuesday night, with Shantz making 33 saves in the losing effort. Shantz has appeared in all three games for Peterborough during the Memorial Cup going 1-2 with a 3.00 GAA and a .925 save percentage.
