AIC Head Coach Eric Lang was blunt. He started the line lead by Eric Otto. Lang did so because that group played well in the series opener. Also he did it because “Starting Otto was about setting the tone for how we wanted to play. They were magnificent.” He also added for their starts that “ Discipline was eternities better. I loved our start to every period. ( We had a ) Tremendous intensity.”
Tonight AIC played a much more in character game, getting better chances and limiting Sacred Heart’s . As Lang said “ We were all business in our approach. Our guys are playing for each other. It’s a beautiful thing to watch.”
Lang added on the goals featuring Brian Kramer(BK) and the depth of AIC that “ 1st goal is BK using his tremendous instincts, after we got the puck in Behind them a bit.
Our PP goal was something our players saw in a pre scout. It was high end all the way around.
3rd goal we knew 33 likes to play the puck so we wanted make sure we hurried him.”
Lang went on to praise each of his starting goalies from the weekend. As he said “ AC and Kuch we’re tremendous. They are taking on the personality of our hockey team right. (They bring the) 2nd and 3rd effort, competitive, and calm.”
Now AIC gets ready for a series against a Holy Cross team that has only gotten better since AIC saw them last. The Crusaders will be ready to work to take six points, and Lang’s group will need to bring their best to be competitive. Holy Cross has developed as the year goes on, and they know how to win big games. AIC cannot let off of what they are doing so well. They know how to string wins, they need to keep going and let their play do the loudest talking.
