With six games left in the regular season, and four games on last week’s schedule, the Walleye needed a good effort to ensure a spot in the Kelly Cup playoffs. I guess the effort was there, but thank the lort the teams behind the Walleye had even less.
Last weekend was Pink in the Rink for the Walleye, raising money for breast cancer awareness and research. Seeing as they only got four out of a possible eight points last week, thus my punny post title. Eh? EH? Oh never mind, onto the recaps…
The Walleye were rather busy last week, playing four games in five nights. Therefore I have a lot of recaps to write, so pardon the bad pun for a title s’il vous plait.
Due to the ECHL All-Star Classic last Wednesday, the Walleye entered the weekend well rested for a stretch of three games in three nights. Add a few familiar faces back from the “A,” and it was a mostly successful homecoming for the fish.
Hello, hello? Is this thing on?
I know we’ve all been giddy with the NHL returning over the weekend, but contrary to popular belief, hockey never left in some places. So even though it seems as if half the players in the league got promoted, ECHL games continued as scheduled.
Four game winning streak. Three game losing streak. Three game winning streak. Whatever Walleye, just know I prefer streaking on the winning end, please and thank you.
By now I’m sure you’ve all watched the Walleye Holiday Video. If not, please do as it’s better than the recap that will follow.
The Walleye entered this week in first place in the North Division, with three contests versus division foes over the weekend. Add in the throwing of stuffed animals and a visit from three middle-aged hockey players turned “actors,” and it proved to be an eventful week.
The week for the Walleye looked so promising – one last game on the road at Wheeling Thursday night, and then back-to-back games at home vs. North Division newcomers Fort Wayne and Evansville. They should do well, I thought. I should stop thinking.
