Just four comments.

1) Thanks for posting all of this!

2) I can't believe that Chicago and Grand Rapids are going from a Monday to a Saturday (5 days) between games.

3) I can't believe those lazy California teams have only played 2 games, while the above have played 4 games.

4) Ditto for Hershey and Providence. Play 2 games and take 4 days off. Is the circus in town? Go around NYC and avoid the traffic. It is less than 350 miles on your buses.

It takes time to get enough Dunkin' Donuts ready for that big playoff crowd in Providence.

As I feared, the Griffins were just too much for the Wolves to handle.  So the Western Conference finals match-up is set ... Barracuda, Griffins to meet for West title

 

Meanwhile in the East, Hershey & Syracuse hold 3-2 semifinal series leads.

ETA: Make that a 3-3 series.

At least Chicago got more than one home game in the playoffs!

I am surprised that the finals don't start until Friday. Is the AHL waiting to get more games on the weekends or is it an arena scheduling problem?
