Charlotte Checkers Advance To Third Round Of The Calder Cup Playoffs

CHARLOTTE, NC (News Release) — After earning a first-round bye and defeating Bridgeport in Round 2, the Checkers continue their championship defense against the Springfield Thunderbirds. This is the Checkers’ toughest challenge yet, as the Checkers earned the regular season’s Atlantic Division title over Springfield on a tiebreaker.
