Hockey fans rejoice more hockey championship action is coming to the DCU center. Worcester recently got a chance to host the BC eagles on their way to the Frozen Four championship now the Worcester Sharks kick of their finals series against the Manchester Sharks here this Sunday.
If you were lucky enough to stay tuned to the Boston Bruins last night you would have gotten a dose of hockey finals intensity. In double overtime the Bruins won against the Sabres 3-2 bringing them to a 3-1 lead in the series. The Worcester Sharks will hopefully bring that level of intensity to their series against the Manchester Monarchs.
Tickets have gone on sale for the first 2 games here in Worcester. The first game will be an afternoon game on Sunday which is always great as a family event. The second game will be on Wednesday evening. This is the second round of the Calder Cup finals. Both Manchester and Worcester have been on a winning streak in the finals so the first game may cause a momentum shift.
Thankfully the Worcester Sharks continue to draw good attendance which is a must for local teams like the Worcester Tornadoes which are back this season after trading hands. The Lowell Devils for example have not been able to get the attendance needed and may change hands.
