The Florida Eels Elite team had to win this morning to keep alive in the playoffs and they did just that with a 2-1 win over the Madhatters. The playoffs are best of 3 so now they go to game 3 Monday
In Period one, we still did not look like ourselves We were in neutral and had to step it up a bit.
Period two we looked much better finding our grove but in the 3rd period the Eels looked much like the Divisional winners. We had to elevate our pace and drive hard to the net
But in the end we looked like ourselves and came out victorious
