Warning--this thread makes reference to all 4 first round playoff games. If you don't want to know the results to all 4 games, then ignore this thread. Okay, 3 of the 4 first round games were won by the lower seed--also playing at home. There's still a good chance that LA and Columbus will advance. It isn't even that unlikely for KC to advance. But....when you look at where DCU is right now, we're the only higher seed that isn't going into the next match (even though it's at home) knowing we HAVE to win and like in KC's case, knowing we have to win by multiple goals just to get to OT. DCU is sitting pretty right now. And I know it's no lock. No guarantee we continue the home undefeated streak. No guarantee we take our 5th win against the Metros this year (would that make it an Atlantic Cup chaser?). But of all of the 4 higher seeds, we're absolutely in the best position at this point--not even close. Not just b/c we won and the other 3 didn't, not just b/c we're up by 2 goals just to be forced to OT. Not only b/c of our home record and that we're on a roll (only Columbus had a better roll going into the playoffs), but we're facing the playoff team with the worst defense and definitely on the biggest down streak at the moment (except for Colorado--and if Cannon has a hot night you can forget about their recent dive). Frankly, if any of the other 4 higher seeds could chose a team to play in game #2, any team--they'd probably chose the Metros right now.
