Next year this will have to be rectified.
I'm not sure how they do the schedule and which comes first, but to me it looks like the SEL teams involved in ET play have gotten SEL breaks around those dates. Not break breaks, but no back-to-backs. I.e. a normal SEL game day is Tuesday, but when Brynas played ET on Monday they played in the league on Wednesday. And FBK didn't play on Saturday(another official game day) because they had ET on Sunday. And so on. Which leads me to believe that the ET schedule comes first, and the league(team?) has to adjust it if they want to.
