The NAHL has announced the dates and times for the Central Division Second Round Series between the St. Cloud Norsemen and the Austin Bruins.
Austin finished as the Central Division #1 seed and gets home-ice advantage in the series, guaranteeing themselves Games 1 and 2 in Austin and a deciding Game 5 would be back at Riverside Arena if needed. Games 1 and 2 will be this Friday and Saturday May 5th and 6th with the puck dropping at 7:05 each night.
St. Cloud, the #3 seed in the Central, hosts Game 3 for sure and Game 4 if needed, and both of those games would be back at the MAC in St. Cloud on Friday, May 12th and Saturday, May 13th with the game start scheduled for 7:00 each night. If the teams split the opening four games the decisive Game 5 back in Austin would be played Sunday, May 14th, with the game being moved up two hours to a 5:05 game time start.
