Bud Holloway, Dwight King and the Manchester Monarchs are going to the second round of the Calder Cup playoffs after finishing off the Portland Pirates in a four-game sweep Tuesday.
The Monarchs’ 7-2 win was the only blowout of the series. Holloway had a goal and King had an assist. Backup goalie Jeff Zatkoff was the third former Reign player in a Monarchs uniform, but did not appear in a game as Jonathan Bernier handled goaltending duties.
Manchester will play either the Worcester Sharks or Lowell Devils in the second round.
