Waterloo Black Hawks skate into Clark Cup Finals Tuesday night

Posted: Updated:
WATERLOO (KWWL) - Tuesday night is do or die for Waterloo hockey fans.

The Clark Cup Finals Series is tied 2-2, as the Waterloo Black Hawks host the Indiana Ice in Game Five of the series Tuesday night at Young Arena.

The Hawks enter Tuesday night's game with 44 regular-season wins. Ranking second in scoring for the season and third in scoring defense, the team averaged only 11.5 minutes in the box per night -- the lowest in the USHL.

Coach P. K. O'Handley is the winningest coach in USHL history. The Anderson Cup-winning Black Hawks last won the Clark Cup in the 2003-2004 season.

"Now we have the ultimate opportunity on our ice," O'Handley said. "Will it be easy? No, nothing in life worth anything is, and we'll play."

Black Hawk fans are encouraged to bring cowbells to Tuesday's game. The bells were banned at the Indiana Ice's arena during the weekend's games, so now fans share one objective: Make some noise!

Senior Account Executive Tim Harwood with the Waterloo Black Hawks said anyone who brings a cowbell with them to the game will receive a "More Cowbell" sticker. Fans can present the sticker at several local businesses through Thursday to receive specials and discounts.

The puck drops at 7:05 p.m. Tuesday at Young Arena.
