The 2017-18 season comes to an end Sunday for the Canadian Junior Hockey League, with two teams – the host Chilliwack Chiefs and Wellington Dukes – remaining in the chase for the RBC Cup.

But how did those two teams, and the rest of the CJHL, get to the championship game? And how do the Chiefs and Dukes match up?
