Cambridge RedHawks hope to keep season alive in Game 4 tonight

The RedHawks trail the Elmira Sugar Kings 3-0 in their first round series
The Cambridge RedHawks look to avoid being swept tonight in their first round series against Elmira.

The Cambridge RedHawks' backs are against the boards.

Trailing their first round Midwestern Conference series with the Elmira Sugar Kings 3-0, they need a win tonight to keep their season from being put on ice.

Despite dropping the first three games, there's reason for optimism with the team returning home for Game 4.

Every game so far has been decided by two goals or less, with Game 1 ending in overtime after the RedHawks hit the post and Elmira scoring the game-winner seconds later.

During the regular season, all six games were decided by a goal with two going to a shootout and one ending in overtime.

Hometown forward Matt Fries leads the team in playoff scoring with three goals and three assists in three games.

The team will certainly be hoping for the same fan support they received for Game 2 when 744 people made their way through the doors of Galt Arena Gardens.

Should the RedHawks win, Game 5 is scheduled for Wednesday at 7:15 p.m. in Elmira at Dan Snyder Memorial Arena.

Game 6, if necessary, is back in Cambridge on March 16 with Game 7 in Elmira on March 17.
