’25-’26 Pirates Will Represent Extinct Pittsburgh Franchise Again, After Defeating Top-Seeded ’27-’28 Pirates in Six Games

The series got off to a great start for the reigning Pirates representatives. The ’25-’26 Pirates took Game 1 “on the road” in a dominating 7-0 win. The top-seeded ’27-’28 Pirates rebounded with a 4-2 win in Game 2 on the back of Bert McCaffrey who posted two goals and one assist. However, the ’25-’26 Pirates took Game’s 3 and 4 with Hib Milks totaling six points over the course of those two games. When the ’27-’28 Pirates faced elimination in Game 5, their goaltender Roy Worters posted a 31 save shutout. Worters is also the starting netminder for the ’25-’26 Pirates and he allowed just one goal on 27 shots in that game. Then, in Game 6, Duke McCurry totaled three apples on the way to a 5-1 win for the ’25-’26 Pirates. So, we have another repeat representative for the upcoming Ultimate NHL Playoff. The ’25-’26 Pirates will once again be the tournament’s 42nd seed.
