Des Moines finished the season tied for first in the East Division, while Lincoln finished tied for second in the West. The Stars, however, closed out their season by winning seven straight games and go into the playoffs as the hottest team in the United States Hockey League. Lincoln will open their playoff series against Omaha. Des Moines, meanwhile, will face the Green Bay Gamblers in the opening round, with Game Three scheduled for the Resch Center (potentially interesting backstory, eh).
In his three games last week, Justin Milo scored one goal and added an assist. Justin also picked up the game's 2nd-Star in his regular season finale. Troy Davenport only played in one of the Bucs' final three games, a 4-2 loss to Waterloo. Troy played 59:25 and gave up three goals on 24 shots.
