SAINT JOHN, NB The Quebec Major Junior Hockey League has unveiled the schedule for Round Three of the 2011 President’s Cup Playoffs, with the top-seeded Saint John Sea Dogs set to continue their quest for a league title on Friday night versus the No. 8 Lewiston Maineiacs.
It’s the third appearance in the semifinals for the Sea Dogs in the past four seasons, as they look to return to the President’s Cup final for the second straight year.
