Sea Dogs To Face Titan In First Round

It’s official: the Saint John Sea Dogs will face the Acadie-Bathurst Titan in the first round of the QMJHL playoffs.

The Titan were locked into the 14th overall spot today, meaning they’ll face the No. 3 seeded Sea Dogs in the opening round.

Game one of the best-of-seven series will take place on Friday night at 7 p.m. at Harbour Station. Game two will be on Saturday at 7 p.m., also in Saint John. The series should follow 2-2-1-1-1 formula, meaning games three and four would be in Bathurst before the series shifted back to Saint John for game five, if needed.

The two teams had some close games throughout the regular season. The Sea Dogs were 6-1-2-0 against the Titan. Bathurst was 3-5-0-1 against Saint John.

This is the second time the two franchises will face each other in the playoffs. The Sea Dogs defeated the Titan in six games in the second round of the 2008 playoffs.

Here is the full QMJHL playoff picture:

The Halifax Mooseheads and Baie-Comeau Drakkar missed the playoffs.

The league should announce the full playoff schedule shortly.
