The Buffalo Bandits edged the Toronto Rock 15-13 in the East Semifinal and now face the Rochester Knighthawks for the Thruway Rivalry series. Meanwhile, the Calgary Roughnecks advanced past Colorado Mammoth in the West Semifinal with a 16-15 overtime win for the right to take on the top-seeded Edmonton Rush for their Battle of Alberta series.

Buffalo hosts Game One of the East Division Finals at First Niagara Center on Saturday, May 10th at 7:30 p.m. before the series shifts to Rochester for Game Two at Blue Cross Arena on Saturday, May 17th at 7:30 p.m.
