You’re looking for something more specific than “don’t lose” here?
Any Reading Royals point eliminates the Trenton Devils.
Reading must lose in regulation to both Wheeling and Trenton, and Trenton must first beat Elmira and then, obviously, Reading.
Trenton hosts Elmira at 7 PM on Friday night, Reading has to go to Wheeling for a 7:30 game on Friday.
Trenton then has to go to Reading for a 7 PM game on Saturday night…if Trenton beats the Jackals and the Nailers beat the Royals in regulation, Saturday night’s game amounts to a play-in game. Again, Trenton MUST win that game in regulation if it gets that far.
