One left two times: Friday notes

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:

TEAM Old New
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.
