Two Down One To Go…. Eels looking to bring out the broom….
The Florida Eels Elite team defeats the Mad Hatters 4-2 in game two of their 3 game series. The Eels won game one 4-1 on Friday evening and came back today once again with an aggressive forecheck and equally smothered the Mad Hatters defensively to thaw any sustained attack on the Eels goaltender. When tested, Eels netminder Jake Mork did what he is known to do – turn away shooter after shooter. The Eels outshot the Mad Hatters 50 to 30 putting 4 behind the Mad Hatters goalie.
The win brings the Eels within 2 points of the first place Tampa Juniors. Both the Eels and Tampa play again Sunday so it is critical for the Eels to take home another win over the Mad Hatters. This will be the Eels and Mad Hatters 3rd game of the weekend series. Sunday’s drop of puck is 9:15 am.
