Minot, ND – The Minotauros had to wait until the last day of the regular season to find out who their first-round opponent would be, but the matchup is finally set for the opening round of the 2017 Robertson Cup Playoffs. The Aberdeen Wings were swept by the Brookings Blizzard on Friday and Saturday night allowing the Blizzard to move into the three seed and dropping the Wings to fourth and a series with the Central Champion Tauros.
The schedule is now set for the first round; the Tauros have home ice advantage throughout the divisional rounds of the playoffs due to finishing the season in first place. As a result the Tauros will host Games 1, 2, and 5 (if needed) while the Wings will host Games 3 and 4 (if needed). The full first round playoff schedule is posted below.
