One of the key storylines entering the Atlantic Division semifinals between the Springfield Thunderbirds and the WBS Penguins was how the Penguins would fare against Springfield’s #1 goaltender, Charlie Lindgren, who they had not seen all season. Lindgren showed why he was one of the best goalies in the AHL this season, stopping an amazing 50 of 51 WBS shots to backstop his Thunderbirds to a 4-1 victory in Game 1.
