WILKES-BARRE/SCRANTON, PA - Hitting the road didn’t seem to faze Charlotte as the Checkers flew by the Penguins 7-3 to secure a sweep of Wilkes-Barre/Scranton and advance to the second round for the first time since 2011.
The Checkers have now advanced to the Atlantic Division Finals. They will play the winner of Lehigh Valley-Providence, a series that is tied at one and has Games 3,4 and – if necessary – 5 scheduled for Friday, Saturday and Monday.
