NORWALK — Coach Eric Lind called it another milestone for the organization.
Western New England commit Jimmy Buckingham scored two goals Friday as the Connecticut Oilers earned their first playoff series victory in franchise history with a 6-3 win over the Boston Junior Rangers at the SoNo Ice House.
The Oilers completed a sweep of the best-of-three series after defeating the Junior Rangers by the same score on Thursday.
The eight remaining teams in the Eastern Hockey League playoffs will be re-seeded according to their regular season point totals so the Oilers won't know their quarterfinal opponent until the other series are completed.
"It's a credit to the players, all the hard work they put in and their compete level, their mental toughness, and our coaching staff," Lind said. "My hat goes off to everyone in the organization."
