4-2 'winners' vs. Arlington in the Super 8 play in game. Lose, scrappy game, not too structured, position play lacking but they bring a lot of players. 4+ lines 6-7 defensemen. Next up is Pope Francis
Come on boys! Give them a game!
Over/under is 10 total goals in game. Any takers? I've got the over--9-2.
Kind of a head scratcher. Earlier in the season they played out in Springfield and it was a competitive game. 2-1 then a phantom penalty call which you always expect out there, PP goal 3-1 and then an empty netter 4-1. Now you watch them play and the forwards are all over the ice chasing the play, the defense is simply puck-watching and packing it in in front of the goalie, the goalie is seeing nothing but quality shots, everyone is losing every battle along the boards. Where did they go? Seems the lacrosse season has started early for the boys.
Isn't the game today @ 5:00pm? I know some of the parents in the town were chatting last summer that they thought last years success saved the coaching staff their jobs after some pretty horrible seasons and they might be right. The word was the style of play that they expect doesn't fit well with what the kids learn at the various programs they play the rest of the year. The old 'throw it off the glass and chase it' isn't exactly what Boston Advantage teaches.
Game was switched to Thursday.
