Adin Hill's second straight shutout lifted the Roadrunners to a 3-0 win over San Jose, winning the playoff series three games to one.

Mario Kempe scored two goals including an empty netter. Conor Garland also notched his first career goal. Andrew Campell had two assists.

The Roadrunners advance to the Pacific Division Finals where they'll take on Texas in a best of seven series. Game one is Wednesday night at the Tucson arena.

"It feels great," said Hill, who made twenty five saves. "We're taking it one step at a time and looking forward to the next series against Texas."

It was the first series win in the AHL Calder Cup Playoffs by a Coyotes affiliate since 2003.
