The Chicago Steel clinched the top seed in the Eastern Conference for the 2022 USHL Clark Cup Playoffs with a 6-5 win over the Muskegon Lumberjacks on Saturday at Mercy Health Arena.

The Steel scored four consecutive goals to earn a first-round bye and face the winner of a best-of-three series between No. 4 Youngstown and No. 5 Madison.

Sam Lipkin (Arizona Coyotes) scored two goals and Luca Fantilli had two assists for Chicago, which will look to repeat as Clark Cup champions. Jack Harvey and Jayden Perron each had a goal and assist. Jack Stark made 19 saves in his first start since April 15, 2021, after a lower-body surgery last fall.
