Just like I didn't know there was a Jr. Canes team, there is also a jr. Checkers team, they won their league and advanced to the USA Hockey National Championships (becoming the first team from Charlotte to do so). They were eliminated yesterday I think but still cool to see.

As for the "sr." Checkers team, it looks like we'll be playing Hershey in the first round with Hershey having the home-ice advantage.

Not as tough as it would have been last year, but still very tough. The goaltending is the best part of their team now. With Groulx being part of the Edmonton organization now and several forwards that played key roles now playing up in Washington or gone (Chris Bourque, Mathieu Perreault, John Carlson, Karl Alzner, Kyle Wilson, Bryan Helmer, etc.), the main point is going to be scoring as opposed to having to score 5 or more per game to win.

Another oddity is that scoring seems to be WAY down in the AHL this season, for whatever reason. No 100 point scorers. Only one player with better than 74 points. Only 5 players that hit 70 points. Last year there were 15 that hit 70 points. 2 players that hit 100 points. 7 players who had 75 or more points. 13 players that scored 30 goals.

That makes what the boys did in Charlotte all the more remarkable offensively.

The Checkers did win the season series against Hershey so beating them in the playoffs isn't impossible, but they're still the team to beat.

Good thing the Checkers have already clinched a spot, because they laid an egg tonight against Norfolk. Sanguinetti took a hit in the 3rd and was limping off the ice. Really hope he's ok.

Pogge gets frustrated easily.

Weird, the Checkers win 6-2, Canes lose 6-2. Too bad it couldn't be swapped since Checkers already in playoffs and had their opponent set with last night's win.

1st round schedule

Quote:
Game 1: Thursday, April 14 at Hershey, 7:00 p.m.
Game 2: Sunday, April 17 at Hershey, 5:00 p.m.
Game 3: Tuesday, April 19 at Charlotte, 7:00 p.m. - Time Warner Cable Arena
Game 4: Wednesday, April 20 at Charlotte, 7:00 p.m. - Time Warner Cable Arena
*Game 5: Friday, April 22 at Charlotte, 7:00 p.m. - Time Warner Cable Arena
*Game 6: Sunday, April 24 at Hershey, 5:00 p.m.
*Game 7: Monday, April 25 at Hershey, 7:00 p.m.

*if necessary
Unfortunately it looks like game 5, if it were the happen is the best chance most people would have at coming to a game. So this means the Checkers should win at least game 1 or game 2, preferably both, but being realistic here.

He suffered an upper body injury about a month ago. No word on if he'll return during the playoffs.

That really stinks. I hope we haven't seen the last of him. He's restricted at the end of the year, but rumors have been swirling about the KHL.

Side note, but Jordan was a +4 tonight.

Anybody in NC, do yourself a favor and get to these games! Game 1 was fantastic- 2 very evenly matched teams playing gritty, fast hockey. This one has game 7 written all over it. I still like the Bears, I just think the experience wins out if it comes to game 7, but I think every game is going to be a battle and it truly is a toss up each night. The only Checker I thought stood out in a bad way was Sanguinetti- he just looked really off all night. And Fitzgerald seems like a total headcase. Watch for the Souray/Blanchard match up- that looks like it's ready to explode.

The fact that that's even a matchup to look for shows how far Souray has fallen

On the whole, as a Bears fan, I'm thrilled to have Souray. He's huge, has an absolute cannon for a shot (and sometimes it's even on net), and can be a truly shut down guy in the AHL. Last night, he kinda sucked. Since I don't care about the Oilers, I'm fine with him staying in Hershey making 6 mil a year. Blanchard and he really seem to hate each other, pretty much constant jawing after the play with random cross checks and slashes mixed in.

For the Bears, you're probably going to grow to hate Boyd Kane. He seems to be taking the role as the physical force for the Bears. The usual knock everybody near Holtby on their ass after the whistle kind of game.
