WEEKLY RECAP: Belleville Sens split busy week as the pursuit for the Calder Cup playoffs continues

April 12, 2022

The Belleville Senators’ (33-27-4-0) pursuit of the Calder Cup playoffs continued this week after a strong start that saw the club earn a pair of wins over the Eastern Conference-leading Utica Comets.
