It seems like just yesterday the 2012-13 ECHL season had just started, and I was still struggling to spell (much less pronounce) a bunch of the Walleye players’ names. Alas, the Kelly Cup playoffs start this week, and through force of will, luck and playing the Wheeling Nailers a billion times, the Walleye have made it to the postseason.
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.
Get your mind outta the gutter folks – that post title does not mean what you think it means.
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.
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 blessed (or so we thought) with a three game homestand last weekend, with two of the games versus divisional opponents. Although somewhat solidly in playoff position, a good weekend would’ve gone a long way in gaining some breathing room.
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.
The Walleye played only two games last week, riding high on a five-game winning streak. I approve of this because I am under the weather and don’t feel like writing much.
Riding a two-game winning streak (woo?), last week the Walleye looked forward to a singular game on the road before returning for some home-cooking on Friday and Saturday night.
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.
