Not only does the outcome of this game determine Trenton or Elmira’s opponent (duh), it also determines who would have home ice in the second round.
Cincinnati is the 1 seed, Wheeling is the 4. A Cincinnati win would give them home ice…a Wheeling win would give Elmira or Trenton home ice.
It’s very fitting that both playoff series in this division are going seven games considering how tight the regular season was.
