Here we are: the final stretch. After a season that started so well with so much promise, we’ve come down to this: 3 points out of the final spot in the playoffs, and playing every healthy player we have left.
Considering how well stacked we thought we were, we are now playing 2 defensemen on the 4th forward line. Our defense is weaker than ever with Ellement gone (at least Manson wasn’t hurt in the Beanpot).
And now we play Vermont in a series that likely makes or breaks us. 3 Points or better will put us in a good position for the playoffs, while anything less than that will doom us to missing the playoffs yet again.
It’s a sad state of affairs for the Huskies. They need to go out and win this series, if not for themselves, then for their fans, who haven’t seen a home win since the first month of the season. At least give the fans some sort of hope to hang on to.
