What a season it has been so far for the Adirondack Thunder.  In just his second year as head coach, Pete MacArthur has his Thunder team deep into the ECHL playoffs.  The crowds have been awesome in Glens Falls at the Cool Insuring Arena.  They continue to sell out and even games six and seven which were during the week, it was packed and both were near sellouts.  They currently find themselves down two games in a hole against Norfolk who is a really solid team.  Now the Thunder must win at least two games on the road.  Below is my quick take on this as seen in The Times Union:

The Adirondack Thunder of the ECHL have been a great success story and reminds me of the glory days in of the Adirondack Red Wings 32 years ago when they won Calder Cup Championships. The Cool Insuring Arena was sold out 16 times during the regular season and now the Thunder have advanced to the second round of the playoffs which means more sellout crowds. Head Coach Pete MacArthur has done a phenomenal job and fan base is enormous in Glens Falls for hockey. Some things never change.

I hope the special run and season can continue but either way fans, players, and staff will not forget this season, I know I certainly won't.  The Thunder are a talented team and can still pull this comeback as their roster goes very deep.  Multiple different guys have had big seasons and as Coach MacArthur always says, they play together as a team.
