Thanks for the update. I really appreciate it!

Not a problem Richard.
Second game was one by Steel City 6-5.
San Jose is running with 5 skaters. With about two weeks notice, it was difficult for their players to get off work in the middle of the week. I still think they can pull out the win, but it won't be easy.
Game two photos might be up later tonight, although tomorrow morning is more likely.
We're going to try to upload some photos during the games tomorrow, so we'll see how that goes.
Thanks so much for the updates. I'm from the San Jose area and am very interested in the games, as a few of the players are coaches for our kids out here. Please keep us updated!! It is appreciated.
Phantoms win 6-5 in OT in game 3.......
Were travel expenses for these teams paid for by the league or not?
Congrats to the SJ Pirates for representing nor cal, it was a tough series and I would have really liked to see these games played on sat/sun and I think the outcome would have been different and the full Pirate squad would have been there. Hopefully next year the powers that be will see this and fix this scheduling issue. No excuses though you play with who you have and the Pirates made the best of it!!
Wild Puck absolutely awesome pictures of the Elite Finals!! Great job. Doug
Well said lets flood the league with letters and or emails to make sure this doesn't happen again!! After all both teams played a full schedule and played hard to get to the finals and a true final would have been 2 "FULL SQUADS", shame on the league for poor planning!! Doug
Well said Billy.
They need to discuss a few things in the off season meetings, such as the playoff schedule, the overtime rule(because no sport should end in a tie game), and maybe next season there should be an all star game to showcase the best players in the league. Just a few topics that should be brought up by the owners this summer. But congratulations to the Steel City Phantoms. They were tough to play against all season especially when they came to play with a full squad. I also give credit to SJ given the fact that they flew across country on about 2 weeks notice and still made a good showing with a couple of close losses. Well to the end of 1 season and the beginning of another with tryouts right around the corner. I look forward to seeing you guys throughout the season.
And good luck in Narch to the Savage Wolves players
