GAME 4 RECAP: Sacs à main

Pittsburgh_Ottawa_20180414

One nil, the Lilley classic. In a surprisingly chippy match against Ottawa the Hounds come away with another three points. For most of the match it was a bit of a grind, which probably attributed to the heated challenges late in the second half. We may see more of that in the future as Lilley grinds his opponents down. As long as the Hounds keep their noses clean, frustrating the other side is a-ok in my book. Get them off their game, get them uncomfortable. We’ll gladly take some double yellows please and thank you. Much like the other games Ottawa never looked particularly dangerous They only got off 3 shots all night, and the only one on goal only looked more dangerous than it really was. It may have taken the Hounds a little longer than we would have liked to…

Last week was fun, right?

More of the same, maybe?

The weather is going to be nicer. The tailgate grill will be grilling. Beverages will be consumed. This is shaping up be one of those days we all wistfully think about in early January when we haven’t seen that ground in weeks and walking to the mailbox is maybe more of an every-other-day chore. Enjoy today. Respect how good today can be.



Game 9 Recap: Rule of Thirds

Pittsburgh_Ottawa_Hertzog_Kerr
For the third match in a row the Hounds took care of business and came away with another three points. Three consecutive shutouts. +3 goal differential. Third place in the standings. I’d argue the Hounds haven’t even looked that good during this stretch of games- no style points for sure. However they do seem to have found a way to plug the leaky defense and bunkered down into playing the counter attack. All you need is that one wonder strike to seal the deal, and they’ve found it each game. Even though the last couple games haven’t been “big” win’s (Harrisburg aside), they’re important wins in showing the Hounds have turned a corner. Games like the last two against bad teams have been trap games in the past. Not so much this year. If you want to be taken seriously you…

It’s been 10 days since the Hounds were last in action, including a four day break over last weekend. The batteries can be fully recharged and ready to tackle the second quarter of the season. In contrast, Ottawa played on Wednesday in the opening round of Canadian Championship against Edmonton and will, today, compete in their fifth match in 15 days. Will it be rest or repetition…
