  • Alright, Game 4. Unlike a lot of the previous ones, 6 members of the Admirals scored. It was not a good night for Coachella Valley.
  • Fedor Svechkov got 2 goals last game and was the 2nd star.

Game Preview

So Game 4 was…bad. Just all around bad. The Admirals showed up huge to stay their execution, and the Firebirds mostly had no answer for it whatsoever.

So tonight!…Let’s see if they have an answer.

The Firebirds can definitely put things away, but the big thing they need to do is keep their heads above water when it comes to penalties: they spent a lot of time chasing the Ads around trying to cause trouble, and as a result, the game got away from them in a bad way. They need to take full control of the game early: control the shot count, make sure Driedger’s netfront is clear, and keep the penalties to a minimum. While they are VERY punchable…There’s no reason to get sucked into their game.

Hershey befell the same fate if it makes you feel any better, so even if they couldn’t sweep it, there’s still a couple more chances left to get this over with and get vengeance once again.

Let’s ACTUALLY finish this out right! Let’s go Firebirds!
