— The Janesville Jets are postseason bound for the second straight season, but navigating the NAHL playoff road will be a tough task.

Janesville lost 2-1 to the Michigan Warriors on Sunday in the regular-season finale for both teams.


With the loss, Janesville finished fourth in the NAHL North Division. The Jets are tentatively scheduled to open an NAHL North best-of-five playoff series Friday at the St. Louis Bandits. The Bandits (41-13-4) had the second-best record in the NAHL and defeated Janesville in four of seven meetings.


Game 2 of the series is Saturday night in St. Louis, with game three tentatively scheduled for Friday, April 8, at the Janesville Ice Skating Center. Game 4, if necessary, would be Saturday, April 9, in Janesville, with a Game 5 being played, if necessary, on Sunday, April 10, in St. Louis.


Dates and times for the best-of-five series will be announced today.
