MARINERS WEEKLY: MORE THUNDER IN THE FORECAST

Jan. 27, 2020 – The Mariners and Adirondack Thunder have already played 12 times this season, but it’s the final six that could very well decide a playoff position between the two teams which have been flip-flopping between fourth and fifth in the North Division standings for the better part of the 2019-20 season. Right now it’s the Thunder with a two point lead on the Mariners, but Maine has the inside track on the playoff spot with more wins, a better point percentage, and four games in hand. The teams will play three times this week – Wednesday and Friday in Glens Falls, and Saturday at the Cross Insurance Arena.

The week that was:

Fri, Jan. 24th – WOR: 1, MNE: 8

The Mariners had a historic game offensively, putting up a season and franchise high eight goals in a rout of the Worcester Railers. It was only a 2-1 game at the end of one period, with Mariners goaltender Adam Huska off to a stellar start in his ECHL debut, stopping 16 first period shots. The Mariners broke the game open with three goals between 6:02 and 7:00 of the 2nd and pulled away from there. Ty Ronning had a hat trick, while six other Mariners had multi-point performances. Huska made a total of 43 saves.

Sat, Jan. 25th – MNE: 1, WOR: 2

In a much lower scoring affair, the Mariners and Railers went into the 3rd period scoreless until Barry Almeida finally gave Worcester the lead at 6:43 of the third. Marc-Olivier Crevier-Morin scored a clutch goal at 14:07 to tie it up, but Ross Olsson’s game winner at 18:22 put the game away in heartbreaking fashion. Worcester netminder Evan Buitenhuis robbed the Mariners of numerous scoring chances, bouncing back from his shaky performance on Friday.
