DU Alum On The Brink Of AHL Title

From: Chicago Wolves Website

DU Alum Kevin Doell and the AHL Chocago Wolves are on the brink of winning the Calder Cup. Doell had an assist on the game winning goal and has 4 goals and 5 assists in 21 playoff games this Spring.

After slipping into an early 1-0 hole, the Wolves set a postseason franchise record with five goals in a span of 10:59 during the second period and never let up, en route to a 6-1 win over the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins in Game 3 of the Calder Cup Finals at Wachovia Arena at Casey Plaza Wednesday night.

The Wolves lead the best of seven series, 3-games-to-0, and are just one victory shy of claiming the American Hockey League championship for the second time since joining the league in 2001. Game 4 will be played in Wilkes-Barre on Friday at 6:30 p.m.
