It would have been a clean sweep had the Pirates taken Game One of their twin bill against Colorado. As a bonus, the Hershey Bears also won their playoff game at the Giant Center in overtime. What a night!
AND the Washington Capitals completed their 1st round upset of the defending Stanley cup champions
A perfect addition to our list! The Caps put the cherry on top of a victorious midweek evening for our “local” teams by taking Game 7 to advance to the next round of the NHL playoffs.
