The Eels Elite team were in game mode. All dialed in. Ready for playoffs . They were not underestimating the Jr Blades. We did in prior games and were on the back end of a win. The Eels finished the regular season by capturing the Divisional title and wanted to make a statement to their cross town rivals who was on top.
This was a very physical game. The Blades came out hitting everyone who sported an Eels jersey. But the Eels kept their cool. You cannot win by hitting alone. You need to put the puck in the net and that is what the Eels did: 4 times and the Eels goaltender blanked the Blades denying shot after shot. And the defense did their job as well getting the puck out with precision passing and maintaining the blue-line.
The Eels had their eye on the big picture: Playoffs so they played discipline and solid hockey. In the end the boys had all smiles. Great job
Next up practice and prep for playoffs. March 11-13th at the Skatium
