FARMINGTON HILLS - The Central Collegiate Hockey Association's fuzzy playoff picture finally came into focus after Saturday's final night of regular-season action.

Coming off its 2-2 tie with second-place Michigan State, Lake Superior State finished sixth in the regular-season standings and earned home ice for the first round of the playoffs since the 1999-00 season.

The Lakers (15-12-7 overall, 11-12-5 CCHA) will play host to Western Michigan in a best-of-three series beginning Friday at Taffy Abel Ice Arena. The starting time for Friday's game is still pending, but will be either 7:05 p.m. or 7:35 p.m. Saturday's contest and Sunday's if-necessary game will begin at 7:05 p.m.

Miami, Michigan State, Michigan and Northern Michigan finished first through fourth, respectively, and will receive first-round byes.

In other first-round action, it will be Bowling Green at Nebraska-Omaha, Ohio State at Ferris State, and Alaska Fairbanks and Notre Dame.

Tickets for this weekend's series at LSSU are $10 for adults, $3 for LSSU students and $5.50 for all children age 17 and under. Tickets will go on sale at 10 a.m. Monday at the Norris Center Ticket Office.

All season-ticket holders and LSSU students with the athletics pass must purchase tickets. Season-ticket holders' seats will be held through Thursday.
