NLL changes conference finals to sudden death single-elimination games.
The National Lacrosse League has tweaked its playoff format beginning this coming season.
The Division finals will now be single elimination games. They were two-game total goal series with the possibility of a 10-minute mini-game tie-breaker at the end of the second full game.
The Champions Cup final remains a best two-out-of-three series.
There is no change to the conference semifinals which remain single elimination games.
The Saskatchewan Rush are preparing for training camp and their pre-season game Sat. Nov 18 against the Georgia Swarm. The game at SaskTel Centre is a rematch of last season’s Champions Cup final as the Swarm dethroned the Rush who were two-time defending NLL champions.
