It’s the calm before the storm. After the doors close at Brewster Ice Arena tonight, we’ve got a couple more quiet days, and then we get a normal schedule. Quite a few teams have been playing a limited slate early on, filling in the lulls with scrimmages. It’s a clever way around the 20-game rule. Most of the programs looking to make playoff runs don’t want gaps in the schedule in the second half because it’s proven disruptive, ask Mamaroneck.
Leave a score if you’re out, I’m taking a vacation day to get a few things done around the house.
