Western Conference

1-Oklahoma City Barons vs. 8-Houston Aeros
2-Toronto Marlies vs. 7-Rochester Americans
3-Chicago Wolves vs. 6-San Antonio Rampage
4-Abbotsford Heat vs. 5-Milwaukee Admirals

Eastern Conference

1-Norfolk Admirals vs. 8-Manchester Monarchs
2-St. John's IceCaps vs. 7-Syracuse Crunch
3-Bridgeport Sound Tigers vs. 6-Connecticut Whale
4-Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins vs. 5-Hershey Bears

Many of the games start on Thursday. Norfolk is the easy favorite but being the best in the regular season often comes at a cost. It'd be great to see an Amerks vs Crunch finals.

It would also be great to see Hershey in the finals as well. I remember they were our fiercest rival many years ago. This team did a great job getting into the playoffs. Hopefully they can figure Toronto out.

Just got tix for Saturday's game in Toronto. Is anyone else going? Is there anywhere for the fans to meet before the game? Also, does anyone have any feedback about the Ricoh center?

I plan on going. It's a nice building, perfect size for AHL Hockey. Parking is a little steep last I remember. Not sure where fans could meet before the game.

We are going to be staying overnight. Hotel parking is usually around 25 dollars. Looks like the arena is right next to the Gardiner xpway so it looks pretty easy to get to.

Boy I am happy that I was wrong about the club making the playoffs. !! To bad that we did not get a home weekend date but we cant have everything I guess. For those going to the Ricoh either take the subway if staying at a hotel and get off at the Exibition grounds or park for free on the street across the xway bridge and walk the 5 minutes and save big $$ for parking.

If the weather is nice could all meetup in the parking lot for a pregame, there really isn't any place simple and nearby. Parking is $10-15 from what I remember.

Its by the lake isn't it? Lots of stuff to do there?

I'm in for Game 5 if necessary for sure. This Saturday is a little tough.

Was thinking of bringing the family. Anyone know what ID a kid needs?

I think if they're under 16, just the original birth cert. should get them in.
