The Hartford Wolf Pack will face the Providence Bruins in the Atlantic Division semifinals of the AHL’s Calder Cup playoffs Friday night, after sweeping the Springfield Thunderbirds 3-0.

The game, which starts at 7:05 p.m. at the Amica Mutual Pavilion in Providence, is the first match of the best-of-five series. If the Wolf Pack win the series, they would advance to the Atlantic Division finals.

The Wolf Pack have seen higher-than-average attendance this season and have made the playoffs for the first time since 2015.

The Wolf Pack beat the higher-ranked Thunderbirds in the First Round of the playoffs, despite losing four of their top players, including veteran goaltender Louis Domingue, to the New York Rangers, which are playing against the New Jersey Devils in the NHL playoffs.

The second game of the Wolf Pack-Bruins playoff series is set for Saturday, also at 7:05 p.m. at the Amica Mutual Pavilion.

The Wolf Pack are scheduled to play the Bruins at the XL Center at 7 p.m. on May 3. If necessary, the fourth game will be held at 7 p.m. May 5 at the XL Center, and the fifth game will be at 7:05 p.m. at the Amica Mutual Pavillion.

Attendance at home games at the XL Center this season has regularly exceeded 5,000.

The Bruins ended their regular season in first place in the Atlantic Division with a record of 44-18-8-2. The Wolf Pack ended in fifth place, with a record of 35-26-4-7, following a surge during the second half of the season.
