Green Bay -- the defending Clark Cup champion -- and expansion club Dubuque will open the Clark Cup Finals on Friday in Green Bay's Resch Center.
Green Bay swept the Ice in three games in the division semifinal, then ousted Anderson Cup champion Cedar Rapids in four games in the division final. Dubuque won the West Division in the regular season, and recently defeated Sioux Falls in four games to advance.
The first four games will take place on successive weekends. Games 1 & 2 will be this Friday and Saturday, May 13-14 in Green Bay. Games 3 & 4 will be the following weekend, May 20-21, in Dubuque. A potential Game 5 would return to Green Bay on Tuesday, May 24. The series is a best-of-5.
Green Bay won the title in 2010, rallying from a 2-0 deficit to beat Fargo in five games. The Ice defeated Fargo in four games to win the Clark Cup in 2009.
