WALPOLE, MA -- The East Coast Wizards hit the ice for the final time this week, as they take on the Walpole Express at Rodman Arena. The Wizards have controlled the season series so far by winning each of the first three matchups. However, every contest has been close, with the Wizards coming away victorious by scores of 2-0, 2-1, and most recently a 3-2 win in overtime. Following today's meeting, the Express will travel to Bedford to take on the Wizards in one last regular season game on February 20th.
"It goes without saying that we are in for a good one today," said Wizards head coach and general manager Freddy Meyer. "Every time we take on Walpole things are tight, and often times the games are decided by just a single goal or two. This whole season is a perfect example."
Today's matchup is key for the Wizards, as the team won't hit the ice again until next Thursday, when they take on the Philadelphia Little Flyers. That matchup with the Little Flyers is the first of three more games for the Wizards in Philadelphia, a weekend trip that the team would love head into while riding a two-game winning streak.
