There’s no way to put a good spin on this.
Th Stockton Thunder trailed the Alaska Aces 3-1 in the best-of-seven ECHL Western Conference semifinals, and could be playing its last game of the season on Saturday at Stockton Arena. The Thunder has been an odd team this season, fluctuatiing between great and awful at times, and there’s no way to predict what we’ll see in Game 5.
The guess is that Stockton will start strong, but the key is sustaining the level of play. Perhaps the players will relax and just give everything they have, since they have little to lose.
It’s gut check time, Thunder.
