Ice Playoffs: Squirrels 3, Whalers 2

The Squirrels avenged their loss to the Whalers in the playoffs last season with a 3-2 win on Thursday to advance to the finals.

David Chung got the scoring started for the Squirrels, but the Whalers tied it up with just about a minute to go in the first period.

The Whalers took the lead in the second period but coincidental minors involving Mario Constantinou and the Whalers’ best player gave the Squirrels momentum. Bryan Chiang crashed the net and scored to make it 2-2, then scored again less than a minute later to give the Squirrels a 3-2 lead, holding on to win.

The championship game is Saturday at 7:10 p.m. against top-seeded Wolfe Pack, who beat Meltdown 3-2.
