Heading into last night’s game with the Trenton Titans, the Chicago Express were riding a 4 game winning streak. They were only 1 point behind the Cincinnati Cyclones for the 8th and final playoff spot in the East Coast Hockey League’s Eastern Conference. To make things even more exciting, Cincinnati lost their game earlier in the day. All the Express needed to do was win to be tied for 8th. However that did not happen. Inability to score on offense, miscommunication on defense, bad penalties, and losing the time of possession battle and was the downfall of the Express.
While they don’t lose ground against Cincinnati, they are still in the 9th spot on the outside looking in. The Express are hoping for redemption in a rematch with Trenton later today. Hopefully the Express can get back on the winning track.
Here is the box score from last night’s game:
