Quick Clicks: Charlotte Checkers stunning comeback

The crowd was filled with Hurricanes and Checkers fans in equal measure at Charlotte's Time Warner Cable Arena last night to watch the AHL prospects stage a shocking third period comeback to defeat the two-time Calder Cup Champion Hershey Bears. While many were speechless, except for a loud chorus WOOHOOS!, there were a few who managed to pen some words and get the players to share their thoughts. Here ya go:


After the jump, stories from Hershey and what happens next, if the Checkers hold on to take the series.

 

 

Hershey's Perspective

 

Game 6 will be at 5pm Sunday afternoon in Hershey. If the Checkers succeed in their efforts to win one of the next 2 games taking the best-of-7 series, they would advance to play the winner of the other East Division semi-final between the Norfolk Admirals (Tampa Bay Lightning) and Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Baby Penguins. The top-ranked Pens dropped the first 2 games, but have since won 3 in a row, in Norfolk, to take the series home to Pennsylvania with a 3-2 series lead. 

During the regular season, the Checkers were 1-6-1  vs the Penguins and 7-3-2 vs the Admirals.
