Hockey Playoff Train Rolls on, Hitmen Bury Wheat Kings
Calgary Hitmen Sweep Brandon Wheat Kings

Calgary Hitmen Sweep Brandon Wheat Kings

The Calgary Hitmen Playoff train has run over another helpless victim in claiming the WHL’s Eastern Conference Championship in four games straight. R.I.P. Wheat Kings.

The Hitmen tied a Western Hockey league record with their 12th consecutive playoff victory by jumping out to a 5-0 lead before the game was even half over and eventually hanging on for a 6-4 victory.

Calgary has now swept through the first three rounds of the WHL playoffs putting together a 12-0 record while outscoring their opposition by 24-14 (Brandon), 19-4 (Lethbridge), and 15-3 (Edmonton) margins.

Calgary will play the winner of the Vancouver Giants and Kelowna Rockets series, which is presently led by the Giants at 2-1.  As unfortunate as it is, Calgary is already on the back of both teams' minds.
