BURLINGTON, VT -- The East Coast Wizards hit the road for a matchup with the Vermont Lumberjacks, this afternoon at 12:30pm. Entering today's contest, the Wizards own a record 16-5-6 through 37 games, which would make them the #7 seed in the New England Conference Playoffs. On the flip side, the Lumberjacks own a mark of 28-8-1 through their 37 games, and they would be the #2 seed if the postseason started today.
"We are definitely coming off of a nice week last week, but today is a different test," said Wizards head coach and general manager Freddy Meyer. "It almost goes without saying since they've beat us all 3 times we've played so far this season."
As Meyer mentioned, the Lumberjacks have controlled the regular season series, with victories by scores of 4-3, 3-2 (OT), and 4-2. Every matchup has been close, and the same should be expected again today.
