In an odd twist, the Phantoms will open the playoffs at home tonight, despite the fact that they are the number four seed playing the number one seed, Hershey. The Bears' home, GIANT Center, is hosting Disney On Ice this weekend and cannot hold games one or two, so the Phantoms get a bit of an advantage.
Hershey still holds home ice edge, though. They will host games three, four, five, and seven. If anybody is heading to the Spectrum tonight and wants to write a recap of the game for BSH, shoot me an email.
