  1. And Macon's lone post-season home game reported 3,742, so who knows?
  2. No 5-game series. And no home ice for the first game. Some comedian at the Auditorium prevents the Mayhem from playing in the Coliseum that night?!?
  3. Add to that, Friday night in Peoria and Sunday/Monday in Macon. Looks pretty good for Peoria with their 4,000+ average attendance vs. Macon's 1,800+.
  4. Wow. Predators finish Blackhawks in style
  5. The Ice Bears are proud to host the 10th Annual Charity Classic Golf Tournament at Three Ridges Golf Course on Friday, May 12 from 12:00 - 6:00 PM. Proceeds will benefit JDRF East Tennessee (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation). Lunch starts at 12:00 noon. Shotgun start will begin at 1:00. Price (same as last year): $125 for an individual or $400 per foursome. Call the Ice Bears front office at 525-7825 for sponsorship information or to sign up your team!
  6. Good reads. Thanks for the links, SASRACE.
  7. Opinion on the second round re-seeding? I'd say the format makes obvious sense, just not the application. The "reward" is lessened since the spread is smaller between the remaining opponents. It's the "one bad game and you find yourself in the one-and-done situation" that I (and many others) object to. Three 5-game series (or even a 3-game 1st round followed by two 5-game rounds) would put the SPHL on par with the ratio of playoff to regular season games the NHL employs. And a team could have 2 bad games and still have a chance to mount a comeback to advance. Of course, arena availability and getting the post-season done by a desired date will alway work against pulling that off. At least, I assume, until the league gets bigger and more attractive to the venues. Does anyone know how much trouble ECHL teams have getting post-season dates?
  8. Pointstreak just blew up. After switching to a Carleton Place/Ottawa game for a minute. Is it still 0-0?
  9. I'll never like a playoffs format that awards the lauded President's Cup to the first team with 6 wins - at least 2 of which could be against low-performing opponents; all while winning the Coffey Cup requires having the best record after 56 matchups against the entire league to some degree.
  10. Who's first? And don't you dare say M&M!
  11. You called it!
  12. The News Sentinel article actually wasn't terrible. Ice Bears season ends after 5-1 loss in playoffs By Phil Kaplan - News Sentinel
  13. Ice Bears season ends following playoff loss to Peoria By Rick Russo - WVLT Ch 8 Peoria eliminates Ice Bears from postseason By Marshall Hughes - WATE Ch. 6
  14. 2015 - just 2 years ago. Also, 2nd round of the Playoffs in 2012, 2013, 2014.
