In the eight games between the Eels and the Typhoon, the Eels came out on top. The Eels simply had too much depth this season for the Typhoon. With the many veterans in their line up the Eels had multiple weapons from high flying wingers to punishing wingers along the boards and shut down defensemen in the D Zone. Let alone two incredible goaltenders who were able to steadfastly close the barn door. But credit to the Typhoon whose players did not quit. They pushed the Eels in every game. This week was no exception, as the Typhoon scoring 4 goals on Tuesday and another 5 today. This was a new expansion team that had a full squad competing in every game. With an excellent coaching staff, they have set the seeds for a very fruitful future.
We saw today where the Eels are headed. They are focused 100% on the playoffs. They are fine tuning the team to take on their opponent in the playoffs. Take no team for granted. Not to look too forward to Nationals. The boys looked impressive today and their firepower for lethal. We still have some work to do. Very exciting. This week we still have games against the Jr Blades. Friday night 9:00pm at Hertz and Sunday at home 1:00 pm
