Madison @ Green Bay 3/19 (Sunday)

Green Bay taking advantage of the schedule down the stretch, could win out and be a factor in the playoff push after all. 5 games left, 2 with Omaha, 2 with Madison, one with Bloomington, they really shouldn't lose

Green Bay is behind the 8 ball with only 5 games remaining. Youngstown and Dubuque have 7, Muskegon 6.

Muskegon has 70 points and seem to good a team to head into a tail spin to the point Green Bay would catch them

Youngstown has 1 point lead with 2 games versus Cedar Rapids and 2 more to finish the season versus USA-17.

If Green Bay wins out they finish with 74 points. If Youngstown wins the 4 games above they will have 73 with 3 games in hand; 2 vs Lincoln, 1 vs Chicago.

Hard to see them catching Youngstown.

Dubuque has 69 points and murderers row next weekend. 3 games. Host Chicago then at Waterloo and at Sioux City.

For fun sake lets say they lose all 3. Still have 69 with 4 games remaining. 2 vs Cedar Rapids, 1 vs Madison and 1 vs Omaha. All winnable which would give them 77. Enough cushion to lose a game in regulation or 2 in OT/SO.

With the way Dubuque is trending this is the best way for Green Bay to make the playoffs.

It's a stretch for Green Bay to make it..but for your example, the Saints have done nothing to close the door. From everything I've read/seen the Saints played well this weekend, just got beat by the most talented team in the league. If they keep playing well I don't see them getting shutout on points next weekend, even though it is a ridiculously tough weekend.

This Aaron USHL guy is a must follow and the U-Show he co-hosts every week is a must listen. These guys are paid to follow the league and IMO they'd do it for free. Tons of objective info from around the league. .........I can say for sure I know a lot more about the league since I've found these two, Kevin is the other guy.

Solid analysis. Yes GB has pulled to within 1 point of YT but YT has 2 games in hand. And I'd add that Omaha and Bloomy have not quit and are playing solid hockey, these two total 3 games for the Gamblers. Last weekend Bloomy took MUS to OT twice at MUS and took 1 of 2 this weekend at LIN who's battling for a playoff spot. .....BLM is playing a faster and more skilled approach than I've seen from them and it's working.

 

Let me ask this. GB is 6-4 last 10, if Mittelstadt wasn't in the hood playing with his homies and was back with GB 3-4-5 games ago do they make the playoffs?

Casey Mittelstadt now with 6 points (2-4–6) in 3 games since returning to @GamblersHockey

  1. Aaron Westendorf @USHLAaron 2h2 hours ago

    The @GamblersHockey are now just one point shy of playoff position after going 3-0-0-0 on the weekend

Huge win for Dubuque last night over Chicago. Looks like magic number to clinch playoff berth is 4 points (Dubuque W or OTL or Green Bay L or OTL)

 

Dubuque with 71 pts and 6 games (12 points to earn) remaining; Green Bay with 66 points and 4 games (8 points to earn) remaining.

 

Huge game tonight for Youngstown at Cedar Rapids. 67 points and 6 games (12 points to earn) remaining including 2 versus USA 17's.

 

Shaping up to be great finish here in the east.
