After eliminating the Rockford IceHogs and Milwaukee Admirals to claim the Central Division’s postseason crown, the Chicago Wolves have advanced to the Western Conference Finals of the 2022 Calder Cup Playoffs. The best-of-7 series begins Friday, June 3, at Allstate Arena against either the Stockton Heat or Colorado Eagles.
The Wolves own home-ice advantage throughout the postseason after producing the American Hockey League’s best regular-season record and setting the franchise’s single-season mark for highest points percentage (.724). In addition to Game 1, the Wolves are assured of hosting Game 2 on Monday, June 6, and two more games, if necessary, as they pursue the organization’s fifth league championship.
The current schedule for the Western Conference Finals:
|Game 1||Friday, June 3||Allstate Arena||7 p.m.||Game 1 **$3 Beer Night**|
|Game 2||Monday, June 6||Allstate Arena||7 p.m.||Game 2|
|Game 6*||Tuesday, June 14||Allstate Arena||7 p.m.||Game 6 (if necessary)|
|Game 7*||Wednesday, June 15||Allstate Arena||7 p.m.||Game 7 (if necessary)|
The Wolves await the winner of the best-of-5 Pacific Division Finals. Top-seeded Stockton, which posted the AHL’s second-best regular season points percentage, owns a 2-1 series lead over third-seeded Colorado. They’ll meet in Game 4 Sunday at Colorado. The Wolves did not face either team this season.
The winner of the Western Conference Finals will meet the winner of the best-of-7 Eastern Conference Finals in the Calder Cup Finals. The Atlantic Division champion Springfield Thunderbirds and North Division champion Laval Rocket will open their series on Saturday, June 4.
