The Charlotte Checkers enter the first round of the Calder Cup playoffs as the hottest team in the AHL as they have won 7 in a row.
With the Carolina Hurricanes season done, the Checkers line ups are set which means the chemistry developed during the streak can keep developing. This could be a special run for the Checkers who haven't won a championship since an ECHL title back in 1996.
The positive vibes continue as the Checkers take on Wilkes-Barre/ Scranton in the first round-- a team they beat 3 out of 4 times in the regular season.
On the surface, things look good for the home team, but they are taking nothing for granted.
