WALPOLE, MA -- The East Coast Wizards return to the ice this afternoon at 12:30pm, for a New England Conference matchup against the Walpole Express. This is the first of 5 meetings between the evenly-matched teams during the regular season, as the 2 squads split their 6 matchups last year. The Wizards are also looking to extend their winning streak to 3 games with a victory today.
"It's always a battle when we play Walpole,” said Wizards head coach and general manger Freddy Meyer. "Looking back at last year, and half of the games were decided by just a single goal. This should be a good one this afternoon."
Today's game begins a big week for the Wizards, as their next 3 contests will all take place at Rodman Arena. It's all about momentum, and for the Wizards, they will look to keep it going today with the first showcase of the season set to take place on Sunday and Monday.
If you can't make it to Rodman Arena this afternoon, you can catch the game live on HockeyTV. Also, be sure to follow the Wizards on Twitter, for updates throughout today's matchup.
Tim Usalis ('99) is off to a solid start in his first year in the EHL, with a pair of goals through the first 3 games.
