We are really pleased with where we are at now sitting half way through the season. Our record can’t be any better than it is right now. Playing 3 games in 18 hours is extremely difficult for anyone at any age. Our depth was vital in allowing us to navigate that stretch in our schedule. Hoping we can get some guys off the injury bus this week and back into the mix.”
