It will be an all-South Island final in the New Zealand Ice Hockey League after wins in the weekend for the Southern Stampede and Dunedin Thunder.

The Canterbury Red Devils are already guaranteed of a finals berth and two wins apiece to both the Thunder and Stampede mean one of those teams will meet them in the championship game.

The Thunder completed the sweep of the Botany Swarm with 5-3 and 9-2 wins, while the Stampede extinguished Auckland's finals hopes with a 5-3 win on Saturday, and followed it up with a 6-4 win yesterday.

The Thunder have now finished their regular season, while the Stampede head to Christchurch to face the Red Devils in two games this weekend. The two sides split their previous two game this season, the Stampede winning 6-5 in a shootout and the Red Devils winning 5-3.

One win for the Stampede will see them playing for the title, while two wins will guarantee them a home final in Queenstown.
