MUSKEGON - The Lumberjacks were a bit of a mess heading into the halfway point of the season.
But since the holiday break they have taken off, winning 20 of the last 30 and earning a playoff spot.
Their tournament run begins tomorrow night in Dubuque Iowa.
The best of five series with the Fighting Saints starts with two games in Iowa before heading back to Muskegon.
The two teams split their 4 games this season so they know each other well but the Saints haven't seen the new look Lumberjacks since January, they feel they are a different, better team heading into the first round.
