Meanwhile, the Calgary Roughnecks beat the Colorado Mammoth at home in overtime and now take on the Edmonton Rush for their Battle of Alberta series in the West Division Finals.
New to the postseason format, the Division Finals and Championship both expand to a two-game series from the previous single-game elimination setup.
