    The regular-season champion Checkers, who advanced to the third round of the playoffs by completing a four-game sweep of the Hershey Bears, will begin the series against the Toronto Marlies by hosting games 1 and 2 at Bojangles’ Coliseum May 17-18.

    The best-of-seven series then moves to Toronto for as many as three more games, with Charlotte set to host games 6 and 7 on May 26 and May 28, if necessary.

    Individual tickets for all four scheduled home games are on sale through Ticketmaster and at the Bojangles’ Coliseum ticket office.

    All third-round playoff games will feature concession specials, including $2 hot dogs, popcorn and domestic draft beer and $4 craft beer drafts.
