Much like in every game of this playoff series to date, the Allen Americans came out and set the pace of the contest on Monday night, defeating the Denver Cutthroats 4-0 at the Denver Coliseum.
It was 70-degrees and sunny on a nice Easter Sunday afternoon. Hardly hockey weather in Denver, but that didn’t stop the Denver Cutthroats from taking the ice in their first home playoff game in franchise history.
Needing just a handful of points to make the playoffs during their inaugural season, the Denver Cutthroats found themselves in a spot of trouble when they dropped the first two matches in a three game weekend.
What is life like on the road for a professional hockey player skating in the minor leagues? It certainly isn’t the most glamorous lifestyle. There’s no private jets and fancy hotels of the NHL, that’s for sure.
