Augusta 3 vs. Charlotte 4
The Charlotte Checkers, playing their third game of a six-game home stand, were looking to remain undefeated at home in 2005. Standing in their way was American Conference East Division rival the Augusta Lynx. These teams have met four times already this season, and the Checkers needed a spark from their power play, which had been ranked 19th in the league coming into the game, to take out the Lynx. After a hard fought battle, the Checkers came away with three power play goals to nab the victory, 4-3, maintaining their place atop the East Division.
