EHL Teams Goes for 2nd Straight Win Against the 87s

BEDFORD, MA -- The East Coast Wizards hit the ice again this evening, for the back-end of a two-game set with the New Jersey 87s. The Wizards never trailed yesterday afternoon, on their way to a 4-2 victory over the 87s. The matchup was the first-ever meeting between the two organizations. Heading into today's contest the Wizards own a mark of 16-9-1, while the 87s currently sit at 22-6-0.

"That was a fun game to be a part of yesterday," said Wizards head coach and general manager Freddy Meyer. "Obviously the empty-net goal at the end makes things look a little different, but that was truly a one-goal hockey game. I expect the 87s to come out flying tonight, and our guys have to make sure they are ready for it."

Be sure to check back in tomorrow, for a full weekend recap of the two-game series.
