Espanola – Sudbury quarter-final series schedule released
SUDBURY – The Northern Ontario Junior Hockey League announced Sunday its schedule for the quarter-final playoff series between the Espanola Rivermen and Sudbury Nickel Barons.
Due to a number of arena conflicts and ice availability the best-of-seven affair will actually see No. 6 Sudbury serve as the home team for the opener even though No. 3 Espanola is the higher seeded squad.
Game 1 will go Wednesday, March 12 at McClelland Arena in Copper Cliff at 7:30 p.m.
The Rivermen will in turn then host games 2 and 3 on Friday, March 14 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, March 16 at the Espanola Regional Recreation Complex.
Game 4, which goes at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, March 19, also features another potential ice issue with the contest either being held at the Davies Community Centre in Walden or back at McClelland Arena.
The venue for that match-up will be confirmed as soon as it is finalized.
The Northeastern & the Islands Recreation Centre in Little Current will be the site of game 5 in the series if required. It will be held Friday, March 21 at 7:30 p.m.
If necessary game 6 is slated for Sunday, March 23 at McClelland Arena at 7:30 p.m.
Should a seventh and deciding game be needed, it will be staged back in Espanola on Wednesday, March 26 at 7:30 p.m.
