BTW, this season, the Ice Bears are 4-2-1 against the Rivermen - with 3 of those wins in Peoria (while losing 2 of the 3 games in Knoxville).

I never complain about officials, but in the Antz-Huntsville game Saturday night I witnessed the worst officiating performance by a ref in a good many years, Andrew Bruggeman was absolutely horrible, Huntsville used the same tactics Peoria uses and it sure worked with this guy. Numerous slashes, elbows and illegal hits went on with no calls whatever, checks to the back and you name it, he lost total control of the game and the way it ended with the Havoc player blasting the puck at the goal seconds after the game ended could have resulted in suspensions for the Antz. I want ya'll to knock Peoria out and you better be sure Bruggeman is kept out of your arena, good luck. Also no sour grapes cause we won the game, it could have gotten real dangerous though.

I notice he left out the part where the Ice Bears beat the Rivermen 3 out of 4 times in Peoria this season.

Notice both teams - KNX 4-2-1, PIA 3-1-3 - made 9 points apiece out of the seven games.
Notice all the other reasons I made the pick I did.
Next 4 days will tell us if I am right.

What determines who advances in the playoffs, points or wins?

Dang, Shaun. I forgot that was you that wrote the article. We will see.

qwacker2, you could say both. First team with 2 wins outs of 3 games advances. And they would have 4 points to a maximum possible of 3 points for the loser.

I guess that explains why the SPHL can't have a best of 5 series.

Because the League office can't count that high?  :hmm:

Happy to see Da Bears used you as their T-shirt model this year, Mac.  Too bad they couldn't wait until you put your face on that morning.  :huh:

Which is something I point out. Rivermen lost a LOT of games in OT this year. That is NOT a virtue in the playoffs.

I was going to say "hick". But at least they're covering the Bears - unlike the local fish wrapper.

Don't encourage Mr. Bill, Mac.  He's already convinced he's the second best sportswriter covering the Rivermen.  ;)
