USHL Concludes Regular Season

Indiana and Omaha swept their final two games of the regular season, which seemed fitting for the two divisional winners. Cedar Rapids, meanwhile, was swept in its final weekend of play.

Indiana fell behind Cedar Rapids, 4-0, on Friday, before scoring the final six goals of the game. The Ice followed that up with a 7-0 blanking of Ohio on Saturday. Locke Jillson picked up an assist in Friday's win for Indy.

The Ice opens its playoffs on Thursday when it hosts Chicago.

Omaha defeated Sioux City, 7-1, on Friday. Keir Ross had an assist in the Lancers' win. Keir also scored a goal on Saturday to help Omaha to a 5-3 victory over Des Moines.

The Lancers will entertain Sioux City on Tuesday in its playoff opener.

Cedar Rapids dropped a 6-4 decision to Indy, as mentioned above. The RoughRiders also fell to Waterloo, 3-2, on Saturday. Vince Mihalek did not play in either game.

The 'Riders visit Waterloo on Friday in their opener.

Congratulations to Keir for finishing the regular season with a league-leading +38. Chicago's Brian O'Neill (Yale) was second with a +29.
