The Florida Eels Premier Team Overtake the Typhoon 10-1 in Sunday’s Home Game

The Thanksgiving break was furthest from the Eels players mind when they took on the Palm Beach Typhoon this past week as they defeated the Typhoon in Palm Beach 6-2 and then overran them at home 10-1. Over the years the Eels struggled with games this weekend as the boys are preoccupied about returning home to their families and friends and lose sight at the game in front of them. “we hate these preholiday games for that very reason” echoed GM Scarpaci.  They often lack the focus and it has traditionally cost us every season.


This season the boys were dialed in. They understand how important every game is and the 2 valuable points are on the line. We went over the term complacency and hollow games where the effort is wanting. Anyone watching the game in Palm Beach would see the focus and will to win. The way these boys fight for every inch of the ice. To own the real estate so to speak.  To battle for every inch and to out work their opponents every time they hit the ice. Shift by shift period by period.  But this effort cannot be turned on game by game. It has to be present in every practice and every day in the gym.


This was ever so present on Sunday when you saw from the first minute of play and every minute as the game went on. All 4 lines were firing with all cylinders. The dedication was prevalent throughout the rink. It was a systematic and continuous demonstration of will determination and execution. The Eels did not let up for a second. 10 goals for clearly reflects this. You never would have known 28 players were heading home 2 hours after the game. The focus was there throughout.


The boys are heading home for a well deserved rest and to reenergize.  To be with family and friends and enjoy the time off. They have 3 games upon their return and then hit the December Showcase. Those will be tough games and we will be prepared for them. The Eels sit in first place in their division. So they have a bullseye on their backs. They know this . Every opponent gets up for their games. So, things never get easy.
