3W, no. 6; newsletter by h.s.)
Early 7pm games always throw us either we are missing guys who can't get down in time or our warm-ups are cut short or Russ is running late. This time all of those happened. The Jags B (who it seems like we've played every week of the season) scored on their first run down ice and then added a second soon after. Fortunately, Russ arrived around mid-period and on his first shift put the puck in to make it a 2-1 game.
As the game went on we were moving the puck better, but a defensive turnover proved costly in the 2nd period and the Jags extended their lead back to two goals.
Trailing 3-1 in the 3rd we started putting the pressure on, but the closest we came was a post that Russ rang at the 9-minute mark. The Jags took advantage of our 4-man press and added another score on breakaway, but we held them after that even though they kept the puck moving with a few odd-man rushes late in the period.
