Saturday's Morning Skate 5/16

Saturday, May 16, 2015
Manchester will face Hartford in the Eastern Conference Finals starting Thursday night.
EDITOR'S NOTE: First off, stay tuned here all summer long for the latest off-season news surrounding the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins and Lehigh Valley Phantoms. I'll be working on putting together an off season post with a preview of what's to come this summer and all the dates you need to remember, etc. I have decided to bring back Monday's Catch Up & Links weekly feature that I will run throughout the off-season starting next Monday, May 18th.

Last night, the Eastern Conference Finals match up was set as the Hartford WolfPack ousted the Hershey Bears 6-3 in Game Six and will face the Manchester Monarchs in the third round - four wins away from the 2015 Calder Cup Finals.
