Week 17 Preview

With 7 weeks left in the regular season, the standings are becoming more and more important.  While the playoff picture is far from clear, some teams need to make their move now.

Nightmares (5) v Vaders (6)

These two teams can finish anywhere between 3rd and 6th while the top 2 spots are likely out of reach.  Nightmares have a 3 point cushion but Vaders have the edge in the season series have won 1 and drawn 2.  It’s hard to see Vaders get out of 6th place if they aren’t able to get the full 3 points this week.

Lightning (3) v Emeralds (4)

Last week’s win for Lightning ended their mini-slump.  Unfortunately for them, this slump cost them 2nd place and if they want to get that spot back, a win over Emeralds is crucial. For their part, Emeralds can still reach 2nd but can’t afford any slip-up on Wednesday night.

Direwolves (1) v Red Bulls (2)

It’s a huge game in prime-time to finish off the week.  A win for the Direwolves and they’ll surely finish as regular season champions.  A draw would also be a good result, but would still leave Red Bulls in the game.  A win for Red Bulls and it’s game on for the rest of the season!
