We are almost to the halfway point of the ECHL season and I think it would be fun to analyze each team’s remaining schedule by seeing which opponents they play, their head to head record, and whether the games are home or away. From there I will predict if they make the playoffs or if it is too close I will put the chance I think they have of making the playoffs.
