BEDFORD, MA -- The East Coast Wizards will return home this afternoon, in search of their fourth consecutive victory. Today's matchup brings the Seahawks Hockey Club to town, in a huge divisional showdown. Entering the contest, the Wizards own a record of 26-12-1, which gives them a very slight edge over the Seahawks (23-12-4) at the top of the division. With a playoff berth clinched, all the focus for the Wizards now points towards earning a First Round bye. A win today would go a long way towards making that happen.
"We need to get out to a quick start this afternoon," said Wizards head coach and general manager Freddy Meyer. "It goes without saying that playing from ahead is a much better spot to be, but that is especially the case with the Seahawks."
As Meyer mentioned, scoring first is key today, especially because in the season series to date, the Seahawks have scored first in all three matchups. Following today's meeting, the Wizards will host the Seahawks for one final showdown on Saturday, March 2nd.
