Rats season finale -- playoff preview

The Albany River Rats concluded their regular season today with a 3-2 loss at Philadelphia. This is also going to be their opponent in the first round of the Calder Cup playoffs. The AHL uses an oddball 1-2-2-2 format as opposed to the 2-2-1-1-1 format used in the NHL. As the #3 seed in the East Division, Albany will be the "road" team, and will host games 1,4 and 5.

Game one will be Wednesday night in Albany. For the full schedule of Calder Cup playoffs, click here.
