73s Have Home Ice Advantage

The Essex 73s have home ice advantage in a series where the victors have all played at home.

The Jr.C quarterfinal series is tied two games apiece, and the Dorchester Dolphins are in Essex for Game 5 in the quarterfinal series.

Despite the obvious advantage, Essex head coach Gail Langlois isn’t leaving anything to chance. “Well they’re a very aggressive team. They’re a big team. They finish their checks,” he says. “Very fast team. They’re very physical.” Langlois says the 73s challenge tonight will be tightening their defence and staying out of the penalty box.

Game time is 7pm at Essex Memorial Arena.
