Falcons set franchise record for wins
SPRINGFIELD – The Springfield Falcons earned all six possible points last week, defeating the Portland Pirates on April 11, the Hershey Bears on April 12 and the Bridgeport Sound Tigers on April 13 to reach 47 wins, a new single season franchise record.
The Falcons surpassed the previous mark (45) accomplished in 1997-98 and 2012-13. The team’s 100 points, reached with their win at Bridgeport on April 13, matches a franchise record, previously set in 1995-96.
The Falcons close out the regular season with two road games this weekend – April 18 at 7 p.m. versus the Hartford Wolf Pack and April 19 at 5 p.m. versus the Albany Devils.
The Falcons will host their first two home playoff games on April 25 and 26 at the MassMutual Center. Both games will begin at 7 p.m., although an opponent has yet to be determined.
