Fighting Saints’ Backs Against The Wall

By Josh Christensen, KCRG-TV9

DUBUQUE, Iowa -- The Dubuque Fighting Saints’ quest to repeat as Clark Cup champions is in danger.

The Indiana Ice lead their series 2-0, and one more loss would end the Fighting Saints’ season. Now Dubuque has to win three straight games, which is a tall task. The Fighting Saints are glad to be back home and they’re not pushing the panic button.

“We gave up early leads,” Alexx Privitera said. “That was the biggest thing. We lost both first periods there, and we battled hard. We’ve just got to keep playing hard, doing what we do and executing a little bit better and we’ll be okay.”
