Havoc preps for playoff matchup against the RiverKings


The Huntsville Havoc kick off the 2017 SPHL postseason with a first round bout against the Mississippi River Kings. Hannah Oliveto has a preview. 

The matchup marks the second time in the last four seasons Huntsville will face the Mississippi RiverKings in the first round of the playoffs. During the 2014 postseason, Huntsville went 1-1 at the Landers Center in Mississippi while knocking the RiverKings out of the playoffs. Each contest was decided by two goals with the Havoc seeing five or more powerplay opportunities in each.

Huntsville finished the six-game regular season schedule against Mississippi with a winning record at 3-2-0-1 including one victory at the Landers Center.

Each of the last three contests between the two teams have been 4-2 games after the first two of the regular-season series were decided by a goal.

Huntsville, who finished the regular-season with powerplay goals in two straight and three of their final four games, had four man-advantage goals in the five-game regular season series against Mississippi.

Each team has thirteen players on the playoff roster that played in the first regular season matchup between the two clubs on December 9th.
