[TALE OF THE TAPE: NASL Playoffs] The 2012 playoffs begin with the single-game quarterfinals this weekend when the Carolina RailHawks host the Ft. Lauderdale Strikers on Saturday and the Puerto Rico Islanders welcome the defending champion Minnesota Stars on Sunday. For a look at the matchups ...

The RailHawks, the 2011 regular-season champions, went winless in their first nine games to open the 2012 season but are 10-4-5 since then. The Strikers tied Carolina 3-3 twice at WakeMed Soccer Park and won 1-0 and 2-1 at home against the RailHawks.
