BEDFORD, MA -- The Wizards will look to bounce back at home today with a matchup against the Valley Jr. Warriors. The Wizards, having won 4 out of their last 5, currently find themselves in 3rd place in the Boston Division with a record of 20-14-0. The Warriors on the other hand, are in 3rd place in the New England Division with 24 points. They are fresh off a 4-1 win against the Vermont Lumberjacks this past week and have an overall record of 11-19-2.
"The boys are excited for today's game," said Wizards head coach and general manager Freddy Meyer. "They have been thinking about our loss to the RoughRiders since Saturday, and are hoping to erase that feeling."
The game is scheduled for a 12:00pm puck drop in Bedford and marks the third out of four meetings between the 2 teams. The Wizards beat the Warriors by a score of 3-1 in the previous two matchups as Devin Panzeca lead the way with 3 goals and 2 assists against the New England Division opponent so far this season. The boys have controlled play in the last two matchups as they have outshot the Warriors by a combined total of 92-47. Panzeca has been a force on offense for the Wizards as he is fresh off a hat-trick in last week's game against the Roughriders and is currently on a 6-game goal streak. During the streak, Panzeca has racked up 9 goals and 5 assists (14 points).
