In what can only be described as at least a slight surprise the Texas Stars managed to beat the Hamilton Bulldogs twice at Copps Coliseum to win the Western Conference Championship. Now they get the other top team in the league, the Hershey Bears.
The series schedule looks like this...
Thursday, June 3 - Hershey - 7:00
Saturday, June 5 - Hershey - 7:00
Monday, June 7 - Texas - 8:30
Wednesday, June 9 - Texas - 8:30
Friday, June 11 - Texas - 8:30 (if necessary)
Monday, June 14 - Hershey - 7:00 (if necessary)
Wednesday, June 16 - Hershey - 7:00 (if necessary)
Fair schedule. Only one two day break after the start and considering the travel that is pretty good.
It will be 12 days between games for the Bears which in this situation might be okay because that was a physical Manchester series that left multiple Bears nursing injuries. Most notably right wing Andrew Gordon who will likely be back for the the finals.
I will have plenty more about this unknown team in the coming days so check back often.
