The Winter Season II for the Coastal Pirates began this past Sunday and it did not begin well. You know that when the typically mild-mannered captain of the team, Russ Nicolosi, smashes his stick over the crossbar, it has not been a good night.
About the only thing that went right for the Pirates was that Russ did not have to serve the entire penalty and that was only because there was less than 5:00 minutes remaining in the game when Russ was issued the 10:00 minute misconduct penalty.
