Mac Engel and the Spokane Chiefs of the Western Hockey League are down to a best-of-three in their first round playoff series against hated Vancouver.
The Chiefs have rallied from an 0-2 hole to tie the series after a huge OT win last night in Spokane. Game 5 is Friday night in Vancouver.
Here is the rub: Mac Engel was in net for the Chiefs in the first two games of the series, both Chiefs losses. I'm not going to lie - Mac Engel was not sharp in either of those first two games; Vancouver scored seven goals in each of the first two games. The reason? Cough syrup, maybe. Maybe Mac's skate lost their edge. Something had to be wrong with his equipment.
This is what we know: When the series returned to Spokane, Mac Engel was on the bench in favor of the other guy, Eric Williams. Mac Engel has to play games on the road, but the other guy starts at home? Must be nice to be Eric Williams.
