In the final regular season game of the season Thursday, at the end of the first period, the scoreboard read 2-1. Wrong Stuff was in the lead. Then the Squirrels exploded for seven goals in the second period, four more in the third, and now hope to take the momentum of their 12-2 victory into Sunday’s playoff game.
The game ended as the clock hit 3:50 in the third period as the Squirrels went up by ten. Charles Wolstein, Sergio Balatan, Greg Wenograd and Jon Magi missed the game, while Chi Pham subbed on defense. The game was penalty-free until Desi Richelsen got called for hooking in the third period.
The Squirrels finished the regular season with a 15-5-1 record, good enough for third place pending the outcome of the Mutineers-Syracuse game Thursday. In that case, the Squirrels will play on Sunday, at 8:20 p.m. against Southwest Airlines.
