“You can’t complain, it’s just one of those years,” Coach Eigner starts the chat with Mike Pehrson, sharing more news about the injury bug that has plagued the team all season long.
With last of regular season games finishing up, the team has played 3 games in a row with the same line-up (the longest streak of the season due to injuries). It hasn’t been pretty, but the team is finding ways to win and to be relevant as post-season looms.
The keys success in post-season will be to maintain the solid goal-tending and rely on the defense to keep grinding like they have done all year long. With hopes that the injured players will return in time to contribute on the offensive side, Eigner is still optimistic that team has “decent shot” for a deep run in the playoffs.
