It’s too big of a game to let your opponent get that first goal. You don’t want the opposition thinking they’re going to win; you can’t let them get confident. An early goal can set the tone for the rest of the game and break confidence. Whoever scores the first goal will carry the courage for the rest of the game and win.
The game will begin Wednesday, February 26 at 11:00 am EST and will be broadcast live on AHLTV.
