Denver Cutthroats clinch CHL playoffs

DENVER, Colo -    Thanks to a three-goal rally in the third period against the Quad City Mallards that created a 3-3 tie at the end of regulation last night, the Denver Cutthroats earned a point in the Central Hockey League standings and clinched a spot in the 2013 CHL Playoffs in this, the team’s inaugural season in Denver.

   “Even though we are an expansion team, reaching the playoffs was one of our goals and it is great for our team that we will have another chance to play in front of our awesome Denver fans in the Coliseum this season,” said Cutthroats Head Coach Derek Armstrong.

   The Cutthroats wrap up the CHL regular season with two games in South Dakota against the Rapid City Rush, Friday, March 22 and Saturday, March 23. The CHL’s regular season concludes on Sunday, March 24, and the Playoff schedule will be released shortly thereafter. The highest the Cutthroats can finish in the CHL standing is with the No. 6 seed, so Denver will be on the road to start its quest for the Ray Miron President’s Cup.

   Tickets for the Cutthroats first home playoff game, date and time to be determined, are on sale now at Ticketmaster.com, or by calling 303-688-5297.
