With Norfolk beating Connecticut Sunday, the Binghamton Senators clinched the 3 seed in the Atlantic division.
They will play the second seeded Manchester Monarchs in the opening round.
So with the who what and where decided, the only question remains....how will the BSENS win?
Well obviously with some help.
Today Ottawa officially sent down 8 players, a group that combined played 184 NHL games, scored 27 goals with 34 assists.
Most also spent some time in Binghamton and coach Kurt Kleinendorst has already started figuring how to work them all together.
"I'll give you an example...Wick, O'Brien and Condra might just very well be a line. When Corey Locke is back, I think we all know that it's going to be Greening, Corey Locke and Bobby Butler. Those are 2 pretty good lines. I think we know right now that Daugavins has been playing with Potulny and Keller, and they've got something going, so there's another line. And then it just depends on how I want to go with the other line."
The series starts Thursday in Manchester, then Friday on the road before returning home for games Sunday, Tuesday and Wednesday.
If necessary it goes back to Manchester the following weekend.
Tickets go on sale tomorrow at noon at B-sens offices.
