Games Six and Seven of Calder Cup Finals to be Carried on WSWB-38
WILKES-BARRE, PA - Games Six and Seven (if necessary) of the Calder Cup Finals between the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins and the Chicago Wolves will be carried locally on WSWB-38 (The CW), it was announced on Monday.
Game Six of the series will take place this Tuesday, June 11, at 8:00pm. Should the Penguins win that contest, Game Seven will take place on Thursday, June 13 at 8:00pm. Scott Stuccio will call the action for both games, which take place at the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, IL.
The Penguins trail the best-of-seven series, three-games-to-two, but have won each of the last two games after dropping the first three games of the Calder Cup Finals. In the process, the Penguins became the first team to win two games when they faced elimination since 1949, and became the first team ever to force a Game Six after losing the first three games of the series.
This is Wilkes-Barre/Scranton's third trip to the Calder Cup Finals in their nine-year history. The Penguins fell to the Saint John Flames, 4-2, in the 2001 Finals, and were swept by the Milwaukee Admirals in 2004.
