The Rockford IceHogs erupted for seven goals in their regular season finale, skating past the Milwaukee Admirals at the BMO Harris Bank Center, 7-1.
The IceHogs scored three goals in the first and third periods to pace their 40th victory of the season. Mark McNeill and Vince Hinostroza each tallied two goals while Jonathan Carlsson, Chris DeSousa, and Ryan Hartman each contributed a score for Rockford. Mac Carruth made 26 saves in the victory.
The win insured the IceHogs' Calder Cup Playoffs position as the three-seed in the Central Division. That sets up a first-round matchup with the Lake Erie Monsters. The AHL will release the postseason schedule after Sunday's games conclude.
