Only 3 games and 9 points to play with.
Marauders got the SO win against Miners last night and clinch a playoff spot. Still a tough battle for them to stay in 5th though.
A Sabercats victory of any kind in any of the next three games will eliminate Elite from the playoffs. But Elite have bigger problems, playing 13th place Miners who are only 2 points behind them and have outscored them 11-4 so far this season. But if Elite can manage to win any points tonight, Breakouts can do no better than 13th. Any point by the Breakouts puts Tomahawks out for good.
Tonight's key matchup:
Sabercats (8th, 83 pts) vs Volcano (9th, 81) with 8th place on the line! If Stray Cats stumble against Vandals, winner could jump to 7th!
Over in the SHL......
In last night's key matchup, Leopards (7th, 93) continued their winning ways against Dynasty Heroes (3rd, 106) to stay alive, but Bangers (5th, 97) and Musketeers (6th, 93) also won to keep their places. Currently the difference between 6th and 7th is only 2 goals in the differential, so every goal is crucial!
Tonight's Key Matchups:
Thundering Herd (2nd) at Admirals (1st). An Admirals win and they all but guarantee themselves the SHL League Championship this year. But the Herd have won 2 of 3 so far this season, so expect some fireworks!
Another marquee battle will be Musketeers at Dynasty Heroes. Heroes have little to lose, but Musketeers have everything to gain in their quest for the playoffs. In their 3 games this season, 28 goals have been scored by the two teams, so have the fire department on the ready because I expect another barn burner tonight!!!
