For the Charlotte Rush, they came into the South Showcase undefeated and day one did not change that with both the Elite and Premeir team notching wins. The Premier team came back from multiple deficits to beat the Florida Eels in over time with an Aian Flynn breakaway goal. Since coming to the Rush Flynn has developed his game even more and is showing why he earned a division one look from Alabama Huntsvlle before the program suspended operations. If Flynn can keep showing what he can do, look for more Division One interest this year. Read more from Head Coach of both teams Troy Schwab here.
I felt like we were a little slow today. We Didn’t play at a pace we should be playing at and didn’t compete at a level that is required in this league. We were able to get off to a good start and as we knew they would, Atlanta kept coming and took advantage of our mistakes. We can’t keep giving guys opportunities on the power play.
Common theme this year has been contributions from everyone up and down our lineup.
Going into tomorrow, look for us to raise that compete level and play at a higher pace.
As you would expect when the Rush and Eels play I thought this was a very good hockey game. Fast paced, emotional, physical, back and forth with very good goal tending.
The Eels forced us to play at a pace we hadn’t played at yet this year. Once we were able to adjust I felt our guys settled in and started playing very good hockey. We had our chances to score early and We knew if we kept getting those opportunities we would eventually get ourselves back into the game.
Aidan Flynn has been very good for us on and off the ice this season. He put himself into position to be successful and it’s nice to see him get that one.
Tomorrow is a tough day. Two games in one day is never easy. To be successful We need our special teams to be special. it’s only a matter of time with our personnel until our Power Play gets going.”
