If one-goal hockey games are nailbiters, we're down to a single finger before we start chewing the cuticles on our second hands.
Four of our first seven games have been decided by one goal, which has made for an exciting start to the season. Not as exciting a start as it's been for, say, fans of the Washington Capitals or Dallas Stars. Both of those teams opened their seasons with five consecutive one-goal games -- which makes them quite possibly the only hockey teams on the planet who have played more nailbiters (and have fewer undined-upon digits left) than the 14U Tigers.
The excitement continues this week, with a Saturday Night Showcase that starts our Hudson Valley A Metropolitan Division schedule.
