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.
With only a month left in the season, being in the middle of the pack in terms of securing a playoff spot would be a good time for the Walleye to get it together, eh? No one ever listens to me.
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.
The Walleye played three games in three nights last week. I was in attendance for the game in the middle. Did I bring them good luck? Of course not! But hey, I had a good time at least.
Yes again, I know it’s supposed to be “Walleye Monday” but I wasn’t even in the state Monday, so Mea Culpa. Hearing about the last four games for the Walleye was worth the wait wasn’t it? On second thought, don’t answer that.
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.
First off, apologies for missing Walleye Monday last week – I know all 7 of you regular readers were heartbroken. I actually moved last Monday, meaning my computer and my brain weren’t completely hooked up until mid-week. Damn you real life!
The Walleye have actually done very well since I last wrote a post – perhaps this is a sign? Anyway, after the break enjoy catching up on the last two weeks of Walleye hockey. Now in bullet point form with a bonus highlights video so you don’t poke your eyes out by the end of the post!
Sadly, I’d prefer a banana split, but the season’s still young.
After playing their season opener on the 13th, the Walleye had to wait nearly a week to play game number two on the year. Go ECHL scheduling, go! Toledo finally laced up the skates again last Friday at home vs. the Cincinnati Cyclones and traveled to Kalamazoo on Saturday to take on the Wings.
