Congratulations to Erzac on a good series. Every game was very close and decided on one goal.

Cheers. A much more even series than what the wins show. Could've easily been a sweep the other way.

Good luck to the remaining teams in the playoffs.  The Leopards will be watching from the golf course.  Actually, I hate golf. 

 

Just be aware that the 1st round exit has lit a fire under our a$$es are the Leopards are angry heading into Season 2.

You've all been warned.

Leopards out and both top teams (point-wise) are now 2-2. Big night tonight for me :)

Both relegation playoffs are going 5 games.  That's gotta be emotionally intense.

My vote for Manager of the Year goes to Steven Bennett, Eldred Elite.

 

Sitting at 8-3-3-32 over half way through the season and well into relegation, he somehow turned his team around and clawed his way back into the GHL relegation playoffs and won a decisive Game 5, 1-0, to stay in the big leagues.

 

Well done, Steve.

Gratz to bouncer and West Chicago Hawks. Game 5 and series win 3-2 for them. Nothing miraculous about losing to Hawks but the series was a bit of a weird one and I can't but be a bit of annoyed about the very ending.

 

Series breakdown:

Shots:

WES 169

ENI 138

 

This number shows edge on Hawks. They won shots in 3 games and the rest of the 2 were tied.

 

Power play:

WES 5/29

ENI 4/10

 

These numbers tell several tales and there I also see one factor to my demise. I scored all my 4 PPG during one 5-minute major, and went 0/9 after that. Hawks on the other hand had me taking too many penalties and I was playing half of the games 3 and 5 in the penalty box. Both teams also scored one shorty.

 

Individual games:

 

Game 1:

Dream start for Rage, 4 power play goals during one penalty. Pettigrew didn't know what hit him and Hawks never recovered. 0-5 and series 0-1 for Rage.

 

Game 2:

Gibazov is injured and is replaced by Lantaigne in the first line. Line gets butchered with -4 alongside -3 by 1st defense pair. 5-2 Hawks and series tied 1-1.

 

Game 3:

Penalties ruin the game for Rage. Spineless effort from them. Shutout for Pettigrew and showdown for Hawks powerplay. 3-0 Hawks and they take the series lead 2-1.

 

Game 4:

Hawks powerplay continues strong, but Rage wins this one due to even strength domination. 4-3 Rage and series tied 2-2.

 

Game 5:

Penalties again troubling Rage, who take first 6 penalties of the game but still manage 2-0 lead but Hawks quickly make it 2-2. The downfall of Rage comes in the third, with a total meltdown, losing shots 17-4 and allowing 4 goals, two of them by an unexpected hero Ventura, who only had 4 goals in the entire regular season. Rage is beaten and Hawks advance to 3-2 series win with 6-2 game 5.

 

For Rage the series started like dream and ended like a nightmare. But in conclusion, the better team won. I took way too many penalties and Hawks depth players stepped up (Journeau 25 points in the regular season, 7 in this series). Regular season was 2 wins each (one of mine overtime) and this one went to game 5 so I managed to fight as the underdog in the playoffs too. And game 4 win was by strong even strength effort, so I was not only one-powerplay-wonder in this series.

 

Season over. Now a breather and focusing on next season. Good luck to all the remaining teams.

Thanks a lot guys.  Not sure if that is worthy of "manager of the year" since I'm going to assume it is partly my fault I was in that place to begin with, but I'm back for Season 2, so that's all that matters!

Great summary, Wendel! Especially after our last game in the very last game of regular season, I started to worry. You were really strong opponent.

Maybe it is a hang over from Biscuit days, but I can't fully cheer for Hawks!  haha.  Although, I will say I am wholly behind Wolverines in their matchup.  Off to a great start.

Wish I had more time to do a more in depth analysis, but here's the round 1 matchups.

 

EAST

 

#1 Union vs. #8 Duhawks (Union won season series 3-1)

#2 Leopards vs. #7 Bulldogs (Leopards won season series 3-1)

#3 Stray Cats vs. #6 Minutemen (Stray Cats won season series 3-1)

#4 Red Tide vs. #5 Nightmares (Nightmares won season series 3-1)

 

WEST

 

#1 Prairie Stars vs. #8 Tomahawks (season series tied 2-2)

#2 Hawks vs. #7 Rage (season series tied 2-2)

#3 Ricochet vs. #6 Outlaws (Ricochet won season series 3-1)

#4 Pirates vs. #5 Wolverines (season series tied 2-2)

 

The #1 Union sweep the Duhawks and the #4 Red Tide sweep the Nightmares, which sets up a Battle of the Titans in Round 2.  Union currently lead 2-0, but I'd be surprised if the Tide don't make a push in game 3 to extend the series.

 

The other matchup is #7 Bulldogs vs. #2 Stray Cats, where the Bulldogs look to continue their domination over feline teams.  Series currently sits at 1-1.

 

Out West we have the #1 Prairie Stars, who won the President's Trophy facing off against the red hot Wolverines.  The P-Stars just evened the series at 1-1 in an offensive slugfest.

 

And the #2 Hawks (Legends of game world Biscuit) take on the #3 Ricochet.  The Hawks continue their defensive domination and lead the series 2-0.

It is certainly an enjoyable run - the Union is a strong team that directly counters my playstyle, so while we will fight until the last drop, it is a tough matchup.

That said, my team was built to win in the next 3-4 seasons, all key players are signed long-term, and I am impressed with their play (and balls) this year. The offence has been dominant throughout the entire season. If we fall here, I will still consider it a success.

Oohhhhhhhh.  Well this is awkward.  We are also planning to win in the next 3-4 seasons.

Of course we first need to figure out what those balls are that you speak of.

You both can rest easy, for the 'Cats are built to win *for* the next 3-4 seasons.

Make that Season 21 as we just lost the last game of the promotion playoffs after going up 2-0 in the series. Lost my top defenseman for 2 games though so that may have played into it a bit. Oh well, this year I can actually put my team together as most inherited players are out.
