The recent four-game losing streak saw the Renegades in 8th place in our Division, and currently out of playoff contention. Last night we played a game against the first place Maulers. This time we were much more focused and played a stronger and smarter hockey game. We jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first period. The Maulers got one back late in the 1st period and then another later in the 2nd to tie the game. We scored one early in the third and then shut them down to hang on for a 3-2 victory. It was a very close, hard fought game, with the shots even at the end. We now have to wait and see how some of the other teams in our division make out in their games this weekend. This victory should put us back into playoff contention. If we can carry some momentum from this and start a streak for the last nine games of the regular season, we should be in good shape come playoff time.
