Outlook -- The Blast goes for a sweep of the Major Indoor Soccer League quarterfinal series at an arena where it went 1-1 this season. If the Ironmen win this game, the series will be decided by a golden goal (the first goal in overtime). The Blast will meet second-seeded Milwaukee in the next round if it wins; New Jersey would play top-seeded Detroit. The Blast has won 14 of its past 18 games. New Jersey, which has been riddled by injuries and is the only team in the playoffs with a losing record, has dropped five of its past six and seven of its past nine. The Ironmen were 8-7 at home. The Blast went 7-8 on the road.
