ELMIRA, N.Y. – Do or die, backs against the wall, one and done.
All clichés – but all apply to the Elmira Jackals.
One more loss to the Cincinnati Cyclones and Elmira’s season is over. Starting Friday at First Arena, the Jackals must accomplish something they’ve done once this season – win four in a row – to advance to the ECHL American Conference finals.
“I have to see if 18 guys show up to play a more intelligent game,” Jackals coach Steve Martinson said after Thursday’s practice at the arena. “In this series, they’re making it harder for us than we’re making it harder for them.”
