Hooray For the Rays

Congratulations to coach Jared Bednar and the South Carolina Stingrays are in order this morning. The Rays blanked the Columbia Inferno 2-0 last night in Game 5 of the best-of-five South Division finals at North Charleston Coliseum. They’ll now move on to face the Cincinnati Cyclones in the American Conference finals. The Cyclones won Game 7 of their series with the Reading Royals last night by a 6-1 score.

Game 1 is in Cincinnati on Friday, and Game 2 is in the same location. The next three games would be in South Carolina, and Games 6 and 7 (if necessary) would be back in Cincy. 

After missing the playoffs for the first time in their history last season, the Stingrays are now headed to the conference finals for the first time since 2001, when they won their second Kelly Cup title. 

As was the case with Bruce Boudreau and the Capitals’ run to a playoff berth, superstition has played a part in South Carolina’s springtime run.
