NAHL Robertson Cup Playoffs: What You Need To Know

Just one weekend remains in the 2014-15 NAHL regular season and the question heading into the playoffs beginning next week is not so much WHO will be a part of it, but WHERE those playoffs will be and WHEN. Out of the 18 possible playoff spots to be clinched this season (four in the Central, Midwest and North, six in the South), 17 spots have been claimed.  The one remaining spot yet to be clinched is the 4th and final seed in the North Division. The Johnstown Tomahawks hold a three-point lead over the Michigan Warriors with just two games remaining.

However, the big remaining question for the weekend is who will win the NAHL Midwest and South Divisions and what will the opening round series be?

Soaring Eagles seek second
Randy Russon

Soo Eagles are on a mission.

With five games to play in the 2014-2015 North American Hockey League regular season, the Eagles are in sole possession of second place in the six-team North Division.

“We want to finish second, that is our immediate goal,” Eagles coach-general manager Bruno Bragagnolo said evenly.

With a record of 9-2-1 over their last dozen games, the Eagles are three points ahead of the third-place Keystone Ice Miners in the battle for home-ice advantage in the first round of the NAHL playoffs.

“We’re playing really well right now,” Bragagnolo said of the Eagles, who have 62 points from a record of 30-23-2. “The guys are doing all the little things well.”

Soo Eagles 4, Keystone Ice Miners 1 - Saturday, March 14, 2015
Trevor Cope scored twice to help the Soo Eagles salvage a weekend split with the Ice Miners and clinch a playoff spot in the process, on Saturday night at Pullar Stadium. The Eagles were fueled by three goals in the 1st period including two from Cope and another from Denver Pierce. The Ice Miners got their lone tally early in the 3rd period from Michael Maiden, but a late goal from Soo’s Darren Brady added some insurance. Chad Catt made 25 saves in the win for the Eagles.

Keystone Ice Miners 4, Soo Eagles 1  - Friday, March 13, 2015
The Keystone Ice Miners scored two goals each, in the second and third periods, and defeated the Soo Eagles, 4-1 on Friday Night at Pullar Stadium. After a scoreless first period, Brad Pung put the Eagles on the board at the 3:35 mark of the second period, but that would be all the scoring for the Eagles on the night. Tommy Horn and Noah Batis would counter for the Ice Miners in the second, and Keystone took a 2-1 lead into the second intermission. Jacob Coleman would add an insurance tally for Keystone in the third period, with Austin Romzek adding an empty netter. Alex Blankenburg made 39 saves for Keystone in the win. Chad Catt had 30 saves for the Eagles.

Soo Eagles 2, Keystone Ice Miners 1, - Friday, March 13, 2015
There was no scoring at Pullar Stadium, in the resumed game from last month in Keystone, and the Soo Eagles earned a 2-1 victory. Matt Menta and Brad Pung scored in the 1st period, which would be enough for the Eagles. Matt Jones had the lone goal for the Ice Miners.
