The wild playoff picture

No one ever said the SUNYAC was an easy conference. It's well known in hockey circles about how competitive it is. Case in point -- consider the playoff picture.

3 weeks ago, Brockport was in a position to host a first-round playoff game with a record that was good for fourth place in the conference. Going into Friday's game, Brockport was out of the playoff mix in seventh place. After securing two wins over the weekend, Brockport is again in a position to host a playoff game as the Golden Eagles are in fourth place yet again.

3 games remain -- Cortland, Oswego, and Geneseo. The last two teams are #1 and #2 in the conference and have already clinched playoff berths. They will make for a tough end to the season, but if Brockport can win 2 of 3, we're likely looking at a home playoff game on the 21st.
