The Gulls join Toronto (4) as the only AHL clubs to advance to the Division Finals on three or more occasions (Grand Rapids, Hershey and Syracuse have done so twice each and are currently still in the midst of their respective First Round series').
The Gulls Pacific Division Finals schedule will be released by the AHL at a future date with San Diego hosting a minimum of two games. More information will be released at a later date, including opponent, dates and times, and ticket on-sale dates and times.
