What an ignorant view. You clearly have no clue as to the injuries some of our key players were dealing with... i.e. Wes Goldie couldn't (and still can't, if I understand correctly) feel his right hand. Gentile, one of the Aces best d-men, didn't play in the series. These are just two examples of the injury situation Alaska was facing. So injuries, combined with an extremely tired team (remember, they played through the end of May last season... a total of 85 games) spelled their doom when they ran into a Las Vegas team that was peaking at the right time and, like it or not, was the better team. Saying the Wranglers weren't the better team is ridiculous, and quite frankly disrespectful of a deserving Las Vegas team.

Congrats to the Wranglers... now go make sure the Cup stays out West!

Didn't even know the ECHL playoffs were going on until I saw a billboard for Kelly Cup tickets

congrats to the Wranglers. Going to catch a few games for sure.

..and sorry for the double post, but you know what, you're absolutely right. It was more emotional than anything, and I wasn't really thinking. Yes, Vegas was the better team. They outworked us in the offensive zone and shut us down. Fallon was great and if anything, Vegas does deserve the cup championship.

Mike Tyson sounds the siren to start the Kelly Cup Final series in Vegas.

Wranglers take game 1. Hope they lose at least one so I can watch the championship clinching game in Vegas.

Well they did lose 1 and hard 7-2 ouch. but they need to lose another and win another for you to get a chance at watching the clinching game as the next 3 are in Florida. If a team sweeps those 3 you get nothing.

Go Blades!

I was kind of wondering what happened when I saw the box score. Vegas had a 2-0 lead at one point, did they just fall apart?

Florida is a win away from the cup now, as they have picked up a 3-1 win over Vegas.

Congrats to the Florida Everblades. Shows just how tough the ECHL South was this year.

It was a good division. South Carolina wasn't that good tho really, they were just the right matchup for Gwinnett. Gwinnett was built for regular season success. If Greenville didn't play Florida in the 1st round I think they would have met in the Conference Finals.

What do they need to take the next step? More grit? Offense? Have to wonder how a healthy Jakaitis would have changed things.

More grit. Watch Florida and you will see. The forechecl was unbelieveable. I nwould say their goaltending was weak but when you spend 80% of the game in the other teams zone you can cancel that out.
