Dogs in some trouble!
- The first place Barrie Ice Dogs are off to a very slow start in the
first round of the FHL playoffs. Already down 1 game to 0 against
their arc rivals the Cambridge Ice Pirates, they have also started slow
in game #2. Backed by the strong play of Rick Dipietro the Pirates
will look to close out this series in 2 straight.
Ice Dogs manager Tim McConaghy had this to say...
"This is definatley not the start we wanted. The guys have not been
putting up the big games they need to in the playoffs. We knew the
Pirates would not be an easy opponent and we all need to pick up our
games if we hope to advance"
This series is far from over and the Ice Dogs have came back from 1
game down a few times in the past, but it should also be noted that if
they are upset it would not be the first time it has happened in the
first round after the Rage defeated them 4-5 years ago after the Dogs
won the Presidents Cup.
