St. Cloud Norsemen To Host A Pair Of Playoff Games This Weekend
The St. Cloud Norsemen swept the Aberdeen Wings in the first round of the NAHL Robertson Cup Playoffs to set up a second-round matchup with top seed Austin.
That series began last weekend in Austin, with the Norsemen stealing home ice advantage with a game one, overtime win on Friday. The win was a bit controversial as a Bruins skater was down on the ice during the scoring of the winning goal. After a few minutes of conversation among themselves, the officials decided the goal would stand.
The winner was scored by Anthony Ruklic:
The Norsemen didn't get to celebrate the win for long before falling 6-1 on Saturday, which tied the series at a game apiece.
The Norsemen will come home for games three and four Friday and Saturday at the MAC. If necessary, a deciding game five would be played on Monday in Austin.
The winner of this series advances to the Robertson Cup Finals in Blaine, which is a best-of-three series.
Puck drop is set for 7 p.m. on both Friday and Saturday night at the MAC. Tickets for the game start at $5 and all youth hockey players wearing their team's sweater will get into the game for free.
