Prospects Update 1: May 1, 2016: Do or Die for the Portland Pirates

It’s Game 5 in the AHL Series between the Florida Panthers affiliate the Portland Pirates and the Washington Capitals Affiliate the Hershey Bears. In the AHL Game 5 is an equivalent of an NHL Game 7. The Pirates are coming off a rough 2-0 loss in which they were shutout by the Hershey Bears. Now I don’t have AHL Live due to the ridiculous prices but I listened to the online radio and it sounded like the Pirates were not doing well.  They came close a few times. The Pirates have a few good players. I think they should dress Hunt and Crouse so we can see what they are made of. Game 5 is tonight. You can listen online. The Pirates are on the road at 5pm.
