Milwaulkee Wins Calder Cup, Idaho Wins Kelly Cup

My Penguins couldn't quite do it tonight and got blown out despite a sold out white-wearing Wachovia Arena at Casey Plaza.
Milwaulkee Admirals are the Calder Cup champions of the American Hockey League. Their veteran-enhanced roster blew out the Rochester "Amerks" and took care of Scranton in timely fashion, winning that series 4-0.
The Admirals are the third IHL team to win the Calder Cup since the IHL disbanded and the AHL welcomed the additional teams with open arms. (Chicago and Houston are the other two teams)

I forgot to keep you all updated on the ECHL - the "AA" of minor league hockey.

Idaho Steelheads are this year's Kelly Cup champs defeating the Florida Everblades on May 22nd. Another hockey team from Florida? Wow. Hockey has really grown into a North American sport, reaching for fans from all over.
