Eagles 3rd, Warriors 4th in NAHL North

By Randy Russon – Hockey News North

A wild weekend ended the 2014-2015 North American Hockey League regular season in stunning fashion.

Desperately needing to sweep two road games from the Soo Eagles and just as desperately needing the Johnstown Tomahawks to lose a home-and-home series with the Keystone Ice Miners to make the playoffs, the Michigan Warriors got all of that.

Good-old-school coach Moe Mantha and his relentless Warriors staged a pair of come-from-behind, shootout victories at the Soo while Keystone took two from Johnstown that sidelined the Tomahawks and vaulted the Ice Miners past the Eagles into second place and home-ice advantage in the first round of their playoff series.

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?
