For the first time in league history, all ten teams have to fight to get in the playoffs, this in large part thanks to the (2) expansion teams the Cape Breton Highlanders & the Kitchener Waterloo Titans.
In a perfect world, the final spot WOULD be determined on or around the last weekend of the regular season and the teams fighting to "get in", WOULD be doing battle against one another.
Well in this case it worked out perfectly as whoever wins the Cape Breton/Moncton game will secure the last spot in the Atlantic and if Orangeville beats Niagara they will secure the last spot in the Central division.
To get to this point both Niagara & Cape Breton did something they hadn't done all season, win three in a row.
These are exciting plot lines for our fans from across the league to watch & for the fans of these teams it is NERVE RACKING.
These teams will literally win or go home.
Hoping to see record crowds in Sydney & Saint Catharines.
Either way (2) teams who fought valiantly will be booking flights home come Sunday and preparing to do better next season, on Monday!!!
Enjoy this great weekend of competing #nblcanada #thepursuit #nblcommunity
