Quarterfinal Schedule Announced

Saint John will open up the second round of the QMJHL playoffs on Thursday night at Harbour Station.

This morning the league unveiled the full scheduled for the best-of-seven series between the Sea Dogs and Cape Breton Screaming Eagles. As expected, the series will follow a 2-2-1-1-1 format with Saint John having home ice advantage.

Here is the full schedule:

Game 1 – Thursday, April 7 at Saint John – 7 p.m.
Game 2 – Saturday, April 9 at Saint John – 8 p.m.
Game 3 – Monday, April 11 at Cape Breton – 7 p.m.
Game 4 – Tuesday, April 12 at Cape Breton – 7 p.m.
Game 5 – Friday, April 15 at Saint John – 7 p.m.
Game 6 – Sunday, April 17 at Cape Breton – 7 p.m.
Game 7 – Tuesday, April 19 at Saint John – 7 p.m.

The Sea Dogs were unable to play on Friday due to a Saint John Mill Rats game at Harbour Station. Saturday will feature a Mill Rats/Sea Dogs doubleheader – which is a first. The Mill Rats will take on the Halifax Hurricanes at 2 p.m. followed by the Sea Dogs game at 8 p.m. That should be something.

If the Sea Dogs win this series, the Mill Rats could also cause some problems for the semifinal schedule.

This will be the fourth playoff meeting between the Sea Dogs and Screaming Eagles since 2009 but the first to happen outside the first round. All three previous series ended in sweeps.
