Denver Cutthroats Look to Return to Playoffs
Denver - The Denver Cutthroats will play into the postseason as they clinched a spot in the 2014 playoffs on Monday, March 10, having defeated the Brampton Beast 4-2 in Ontario.
"Clinching a spot in the playoffs gives us great pride as an organization," said Denver Cutthroats President and Head Coach Derek Armstrong. "We have exceeded all expectations this season and now we have a chance to win the Ray Miron President's Cup."
The Cutthroats are the third team to clinch a spot in the playoffs, just behind the Central Hockey League's first seed Missouri Mavericks and second place Rapid City Rush. The 2014 postseason will mark Denver's second playoff stint. In 2013, the Denver Cutthroats battled the Allen Americans for five games in the first round.
"The Fish are excited to come back home to the Coliseum and play the final three regular season home games in front of loyal fans as we prepare to take a run at the President's Cup," said Denver Cutthroats Governor, General Manager and Assistant Coach Brad Smyth.
The Denver Cutthroats have 10 games remaining in the regular season. The team will face the Quad City Mallards in Moline, Illinois on Wednesday, March 12, before returning to the Denver Coliseum for the final regular season home series. Friday, March 14 through Sunday, March 16 the Denver Cutthroats will celebrate their dedicated fans with concourse activities, giveaways, a pre-game pep rally and the chance to win $100,000.
