The wait is finally over and the time has come.
It is officially the postseason. Back in march, the Rochester Amerks earned their first playoff berth since 2014, and have now locked up the third seed in the AHL North Division standings.
They will now battle second seeded Syracuse in the opening round.
Syracuse has the higher seeding so they will carry the home ice advantage in the best of five series.
That means the first two games, held on the 20th and 21st will be played at the Oncenter War Memorial Arena. Then the teams will travel back here to Rochester to play games three and four at Blue Cross Arena. Both the April 25th and April 27th games start at 7:05 p.m.
If needed, a tie breaker fifth game will be played April 28th in Syracuse.
The winner of this series will advance to the North Division Final and will play the winner of the Toronto - Utica series.
