CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The Checkers are back in the Calder Cup Playoffs.
Charlotte beat Hartford, 3-2 on Friday night to clinch the postseason spot.
They are still technically the defending champions after winning in 2019, since the AHL did not hold a championship in 2020 and 2021.
This will be the fourth-consecutive season the Checkers have made the playoffs.
The win over the Wolf Pack gave Charlotte five-straight victories, their longest streak of the season.
They have recorded a point in 14-straight games, which is a franchise record.
Charlotte hosts Hartford again on Sunday at 1 p.m. in the regular-season home finale.
