Ins and outs: Springfield postgame

No, look, the shots were weird: Shots on goal may have been 13-4 after one and 21-10 after two, but the Thunderbirds had chances on which they misfired. Ironically enough, in the third, when

Scratches: Springfield pregame

No shots in five games for Josh Ho-Sang, no points in four… “It’s not about points,” Brent Thompson said in a quick chat in the hallway tonight. “It’s about effort and play away from the puck. (From
