We could be one day away from a Calder Cup Final matchup. Two blowouts tonight left both series with a 3-1 lead for the home teams. Syracuse bombarded Providence 7-2; four more points for Cory Conacher. Grand Rapids took care of San Jose 6-2 behind Eric Tangradi’s three points.
Both series continue Saturday night.
Closer to home, Kieffer Bellows, the Islanders’ first-round pick last June, is reportedly leaving BU for the WHL.
Coaching change in Rochester:
|RCK||Ted Dent (4/25)||Jeremy Colliton (5/18)|
|UTI||Travis Green (4/26 – VAN)||—|
|HFD||Ken Gernander (5/16)||—|
|ROC||Dan Lambert (5/26)||—|
And a fond tip of cap to Seth Lakso, departing the Penguins beat after two years.
