    For those wondering why the first two games are away, the Roadrunners had choice of format and this was their selection.

    Meep Meep mother****ers, get us that Calder boys. Hopefully Strome enters playoff beast mode, and Crouse continues his recent form.

    Anywhere to watch these games beside buying the AHL pass?

    I think it’s very dumb that FSA can’t/won’t pick up the Calder Cup playoffs for the Tucson team. What else is going on in local sports?

    Is the ahl pass strictly only online/mobile? Also, seems like none of it is in HD? Majority of the clips I’ve seen look like a Jumbotron screen with the commentators yelling half of the time..

    11 points for San Jose, 7 for Tucson. They also come into the playoffs with a record of 7-2-1 in their last 10 games. That's identical to our record in our last 10, and to top it off, the Barracuda are on a 6-game winning streak that lifted them into the playoffs on the ROW tiebreaker over San Diego. Won't be an easy matchup for the Roadrunners by any means.

    I'm so nervous. I want Strome to absolutely crush these playoffs and prove that he's just too good for the AHL. He's not going to prove he's good enough for the NHL but he can prove he's too good for the AHL. I'm crossing every damn finger I've got that he goes beast mode.

    How huge would it be for this franchise if this kid actually pans out and lives up to expectations? None of us have much hope left that he'll actually end up a legit number 1, but it's not like it's completely out of the question or anything. What if he just needed time to grow and mature? That would solve so, so many of our problems. Problems we've had since the first time Roenick left.

    It is odd they would forego potential revenue. If the dates were mandated by the league, then it's possible they yielded the first two games to SJ, due to a scheduling conflict on 4/21 at TCC.

    nope, if you look at the other matchups, it looks like all of them are 2-3. 2-away games and then 3-straight home games. Very odd that it wouldn't be 2-2-1

    It is a weird format. I guess this way, no matter what, the elimination games are in your own barn. Just trying to think , "out loud" to wrap my head around it.

    2018 Calder Cup playoffs - Wikipedia

    Bruins-Phantoms, Marlies-Comets, Crunch-Americans, and Stars-Reign are 2-2-1. Wolves-IceHogs is 1-1-1-1-1, what the hell? I mean, at least BMO Harris Bank Center and Allstate Arena are only 75 miles apart.

    With Moose Jaw eliminated I wonder if AZ calls up Burke to help solidify C position for playoffs. Great puck distributor.

    Nervous? Needed time to grow and mature? This is only his first full pro season. If he's going on 23, 24 then maybe there's reason to worry. The skating, if anything, could be his downfall. I know Tocc harps on his defensive game but that's not something that worries me at this time.

    They do not. It's a 2-3 format. Final 3 games are in Tucson.
