SCHL Play-off Format

Teams battle for the SCHL Champion's Cups

SCHL  February 28th, 2014 at 2:19PM  February 28th, 2014 2:26PM

Soon the play-off schedule will be posted.  For D1 & B we will play a best 2 of 3 series. For D2 each team will play 4 games and the top 4 teams will move on and play single elimination games.  I know I told many of you that we would play 3 games and have every team play elimination games, but that scenario isn't possible.  Having an odd number of teams play an odd number of games left one team short a game.  I apologize for any confusion this may cause moving forward.
 

Play-off notes
For teams fighting for the top 4 spots in D2 we will proceed as follows for the weekend:
  • Point system is the same as regular season:
    • Win- Regulation/ OT/ Shootout- 2 pts
    • OT or Shootout loss- 1 pt
    • Regulation loss- 0 pts
  • During the preliminary 4 games we will follow regular season overtime rules
  • During elimination and during all D1 & B games we will play full 12 minute sudden death overtime until a winner is determined.
  • Tie breakers
    • Most regulation wins
    • Fewest goals against
    • Most goals for
    • Fewest penalty minutes
  • If there is still no clear winner we will have a play in game to determine which team moves ahead.
    • This game would follow elimination game overtime rules
    • If the B game 3 is not needed we will play that game at 1pm on Sunday
    • Otherwise we will open a spot at 2pm and move games as needed

Good luck to everyone during play-offs.
