ACES win Brabham Cup
While sports fans on the outside cheer on their favorite college basketball teams, Alaskans are celebrating success in a sport we know a little more about, hockey.
Saturday evening the Alaska ACES brought home a 4-1 victory against the Victoria Salmon Kings earning their second Brabham Cup in franchise history. They have also earned themselves a first round bye in the ECHL Western Conference Semi-Finals.
A crowd gathered today at the Anchorage Airport to welcome the team home.
Watch them play April 15th and 16th at Sullivan Arena. Tickets are available here. Or if you're lucky you can probably head here and catch the game with the infamous comedian Bob Lester- Watch his facebook page for details.

Way to go guys! You made Alaska proud!
