Springfield Falcons playoff series set

SPRINGFIELD, MA (WSHM) -

The Springfield Falcons are in the playoffs for the first time in a decade, and we now know which team they will face in the first round of the AHL post-season.

The second-seeded Falcons will square off with the seventh-seeded Manchester Monarchs.

It is definitely a match-up in Springfield's favor.

The Falcons posted four wins, one loss and a shootout loss against the Monarchs during the regular season.

Springfield's 45 total wins this season tied a franchise high.

Here is how the first round best-of-five series shapes up:

- Game one is next Saturday at 7 p.m. inside the Mass Mutual Center.

- Game two is next Sunday at 4 p.m., and it is also at the Mass Mutual Center.

- Game three will be played Thursday, May 2, in Manchester.

- Games four and five will take place the following weekend, if necessary.

- The fifth game will be back in Springfield, if necessary.

The team says tickets are still available for each of the playoff games.
