Hey Stealth fans! Not much to report on the Stealth this week since the NLL has the weekend off before playoffs start on Friday but we did get together to catch an Oakland A’s game on Friday night. It was FREEZING cold and they got pumped by the Rays but it was good to have a night out with the team before the real reason we got together, an afternoon practice on Saturday. We went over our gameplan for Portland this weekend and got a good workout in to keep our sticks and our minds sharp.
Since there’s not much lacrosse to report on, let’s talk playoff hockey. The Sharks lost last night to get eliminated from the postseason by the Anaheim Ducks. Very disappointing for a team that was the best in the league for the majority of the regular season. I think if the Ducks can get by the Red Wings in the 2nd round, they’ll be representing the Western Conference in the Finals. In the East, my Senators didn’t make the playoffs so I’ve got to root for my former favourite team, the Pittsburgh Penguins. They took care of Philadelphia in 6 games and will now play either Washington or Boston in the 2nd round. I’d much rather see them play Washington but as I’m writing this, the Devils are up 3-2 with 15mins to play in game 7 vs Carolina which would lead to a match up with the Bruins. Either way, just like the last week or so I’ll be glued to the TV to catch as much action as I can.
