Eels Elite Also Spoil Home Opener for the Mad Hatters

OT Come back earns Eels a huge win.
The Florida Eels Elite Team Outgun the Madhatters in a 4-3 Shootout Win

The Eels Elite team had to face a bit of adversity going into today’s game having travelled 10 hours from Fort Myers, its bus breaking down for 3+ hours and having very little time to re-group and collect its composure. But those challenges proved trivial as they took the ice at 6:00 pm and stormed to a 3-1 lead going into the 3rdperiod. Big goals were notched by Godbout and two from Di Re. But they were feeling the wear by the 3rdperiod and Atlanta managed to score 2 more times to tie the game up forcing it into OT and a shootout. The Eels somehow got a 2nd wind and came alive scoring 3 big ones in the shootout and putting this one to rest. Nathan Haas was solid in net for the Eels Elite team taking control in net to lock down the hatch, This was Nate’s 4th win of the season.

The win gives the Eels their 10th win of the season for 20 points – sitting in 2nd place in the standings – just one point under Tampa.
