The Essex 73’s are gearing up for game two of their OHA quarterfinal tonight in Dorchester.

The team came away with a 7-0 win on home ice, Tuesday, but Essex Head Coach Gail Langlois believes Dorchester’s a lot better than what they showed.

“I think there’s going to be a totally different team when we see them up in Dorchester, in their own rink, where they had a pretty dominant record through the regular season.”

With game three scheduled for tomorrow night in Essex, Langlois says the two teams will be tired, making tonight’s game that much more important to win.
