Updated to show Game 3 of Breakers-Eagles series is Wednesday night
Home-ice advantage? What does that amount to?
Maybe not that much, at least going by the opening weekend of playoff action in the East Coast Senior Hockey League.
Visiting teams won all four games as the best-of-seven semifinal got underway.
The Conception Bay Hickman Chrysler Blues and St. John’s Green Sleeves Caps are at 1-1 after two contests that had vastly different looks. The Blues took Game 1 at Twin Rinks in St. John’s 2-1, only to lose at home on Sunday, dropping a wild 8-6 decision to the Caps at the C.B.S. Arena.
There was plenty of drama in the second game of the other semifinal matchup between the Northeast Eagles and Southern Shore Puglisevich Breakers. That one, played Sunday at the Southern Shore Arena in Mobile went to double overtime, with the Eagles emerging with a 3-2 win.
The Breakers had triumphed 6-2 in the series’ opening game, played at Jack Byrne Arena in Torbay.
Both series will be unknotted in the comming days. The Caps and Blues meet up at Twin Rinks at 7:15 p.m., while the Eagles host the Breakers at Jack Byrne Arena 8 p.m. Wednesday night.
