Down On The Farm, Apr. 10
The Portland Pirates are the 2010/2011 Atlantic Division champions! The division title was earned via Derek Whitmore’s goal in the shootout.
The 2nd-seeded Pirates will take on the 8th-seeded Whale in the first round.
You may have noticed that the playoff bracket isn’t quite finished yet.
Replete with meaningless games (including the Pirates’ game versus the Falcons), the final games of the regular season today will shake out the rest of the match-ups in the Western Conference and which teams cross over into the Eastern Conference.
In the coming days, look out for a small interview with Chris Roy from the Maine Hockey Journal about the Pirates’ season and their first round match-up.
