Saints to Play for Clark Cup Starting Friday May 13
For the third time in six seasons, the Dubuque Fighting Saints are headed to the Clark Cup Final. Behind a shutout from Hunter Miska, the Fighting Saints slammed the door on the Bloomington Thunder, winning 3-0 in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Final on Tuesday May 10th, and punching their ticket into the Clark Cup Final to face the Tri-City Storm.
In goal, Miska stopped everything he saw. 25 shots, many of the grade-A variety, he denied opportunity after opportunity to keep the hard-charging Thunder, who picked up the Game 4 win in overtime and forced this decisive Game 5, completely off the board.
With the win by the Tri-City Storm in Game 5 of the Western Conference Final, the Clark Cup Final matchup is set between the third-seeded Fighting Saints and the top-seeded Storm. However, due to the standings point advantage during the regular season, Dubuque will receive home ice in the final series of the 2015-16 USHL season.
The Clark Cup Final begins Friday, May 13 at Our House. The puck drops at 7:35 p.m. Tickets are available by calling the box office at 563.583.6880, or by going online to DubuqueFightingSaints.com. Game 2 follows on Saturday, May 14 at 7:05 p.m.
