Flyers Looking To Ground Rockets
The top-seeded Leamington Flyers have a chance to advance to round two of the Greater Ontario Junior Hockey League playoffs with a win at home Thursday night against Strathroy.
The Flyers dropped game one, but have rallied back with three consecutive wins to take command of the series.
The Flyers have outscored the Rockets 14-7 so far in the series.
Leamington head coach, Cam Crowder tells AM800 Sports his young club is learning as they go.
"We're such a young group of kids we need to learn and go through it. When you get into playoff hockey it's a total different thing than the regular season so for us you learn what that expectation was and what need to bring forward"
Crowder says they are appreciative of their loyal Leamington fans.
"We've got a great fan base that supports us at home and we feel some pressure to make sure we give them a good brand of hockey at home."
Game time is 7:10 p.m. Thursday.
If the Rockets are able to force a game six, it would be Saturday night in Strathroy.
