Just a couple of notes to pass along:
-Last time I wrote, the AHL Conference Finals were just getting started. Tomorrow, the Finals begin in Austin, Texas, where the Stars will be taking on St. John’s for all the proverbial marbles. So how did they get there?
(4) St. John’s eliminated (6) Wilkes-Barre/Scranton 4-2
(1) Texas eliminated (3) Toronto 4-3
Again, oh what could have been. A few people had told me they thought Albany would be a dark horse in the Eastern Conference, but the IceCaps probably should have got more credit. It’s going to be an interesting matchup between these two teams.
Side note: unless Texas gets amazing attendance figures this round, Albany will win the playoff attendance wars, averaging just shy of 7300 for the two home games. Considering this team’s regular season attendance history, this is an awesome feat. Even though it was just two games.
-And another Devil has moved on, as defenseman Alexander Urbom has signed a 2 year deal with the KHL’s Severstal Cherepovets. No truth to the rumor that I was doing this upon hearing the news.
