Change of Momentum

Early in tonight’s contest, I wondered what had happened to the Elmira squad that had skated so well with Middlebury last spring. St. Thomas was blowing right past them up the ice and it was looking like a long night for the Soaring Eagles. That late power-play goal by Ryan Arnone seemed to stem the tide. Three unanswered here in the second seems to have ignited the crisp passing and quick transition game that characterized Elmira’s storybook playoff run.
