If Milwaukee gets a point or if Houston loses or if San Antonio loses in regulation, the Admirals clinch. They are currently in 6th place.

Rochester clinches a playoff berth on Sunday with:
(a) a San Antonio regulation loss vs. Oklahoma City, OR
(b) a regulation decision in the Charlotte-Milwaukee game, OR
(c) a Houston loss (reg/OT/SO) or win by fewer than 9 goals vs. Texas

Milwaukee clinches a playoff berth on Sunday with:

(b) a San Antonio regulation loss vs. Oklahoma City, OR
(c) a Houston loss (reg/OT/SO) vs. Texas

San Antonio clinches a playoff berth on Sunday with:

Charlotte clinches a playoff berth on Sunday with:

That's insane for the final day of the season. Houston's scenario is especially nutty.

Milwaukee qualified for the 5th seed today with a 6-1 win over Charlotte in front of nearly 8000 fans. They will open at home on Friday night against Abottsford.

Good luck to Ads in the playoffs. Almost 8,000 sounds like a nice crowd.

I see the AHL has adopted the terrible ECHL first round format that facors the underdogs.

Manchester wins the likely to get railed by Norfolk by finishing the weekend with 3 wins in 3 nights.

Not sure if I was a fan of the higher seends having to be on the road for some of these series for game 5

The higher seed gets the option of whether they want the series to go 2-3 or 2-2-1. So if they lose, it's not like the AHL scheduled it that way, they had the choice.

Is there a mileage rule?? I know in the E if they are after a certain amount of miles apart it's automatically a 2-3.

I know Norfolk has a 2-3 with only the first 2 at home cause the Scope is booked the night of a possible Game 5.

I hate this format. The higher seed gets their choice if the opponent is over 300 miles away - they can get the first two games at home or get the last 3 games at home. The series is 2-3, not 2-2-1.

So the Wolves picked to start in San Antonio. So where is the home ice advantage??

One of the best crowds of the season. Not the biggest they've had but had the biggest fans of the game, so they were loud.

The Indians made the playoffs in Major League and then made it to the World Series in Major League II.
