PostSubject: WEEK 24 (FINAL)   Sun Apr 12, 2015 5:51 pm

The final horn having sounded, team captain Claude Giroux is both happy and relieved, his Boulder Flyer team fending off the Wild Ducks to win their third FHL championship.

The Battle for the FHL Cup

The Boulder Flyers are the 2014-15 FHL Cup champions.

Heading into the final day of the season the Boulder Flyers were nursing a 10.1 lead over the Wild Ducks. With three players resting for the postseason, the Flyers collected only 3.0 points on Saturday, getting assists from Turris, Tatar and Duchene. Both goalies lost.

The Flyers were ripe for the picking but the Wild Ducks were hurt by the loss of Tyler Seguin, benched by his coach earlier in the day for missing practice on Friday.

With Seguin out and Shea Weber resting for the playoffs, the Wild Ducks brought ten players to the final dance of the season.

Ovechkin scored in an afternoon contest but Mason, Couture, Marleau, Schwartz and Yandle would all walk away empty-handed. Defenseman John Klingberg recorded an early assist but couldn’t add to his point totals.

With only the Mike Smith card left to be played, the Wild Ducks needed a shutout (or goalie assist) - something remarkable - to catch the Boulder Flyers.

Despite playing extremely well, Mike Smith’s Coyotes would fall to Anaheim, handing the championship to the Boulder Flyers.

The Boulder Flyers finished the season 4.3 points better than the Wild Ducks.

Having won the FHL Cup in 1997 and 2001, this year’s championship is the third for GM Morgan; a number that places the Boulder Flyers behind only the Bluiners (4) and Wild Ducks (7) for most championships won in the 22 year history of the league.

The Battle for 3rd Place
The Polar Bears enjoyed one of the better finals days - pocketing 13.6 - but their deficit was simply too large, the Ice Hogs holding on to finish in third place, 16.6 points better than the Polar Bears. Having already been awarded $30.00 for winning the H2H title, for finishing third, GM Henry will pocket another $100.00.

The Battle for the Laughing Bag
Lead by the performance of Jamie Benn (3g, 1a) the Ice Cats netted 25.4 on Saturday, but alas, it was not enough as the Cats close the season in last place, 14.3 points behind the 9th place Timbers.

Boulder Flyers: 61.7
Polar Bears: 56.5

The Boulder Flyers defeated the Polar Bears to claim a share of second place in the H2H division. Tied with the Wild Ducks with a record of 16-8, GM Morgan and GM Collard will share the $10.00 prize.

Wild Ducks: 52.7
Ice Hogs: 44.3

The Wild Ducks were better than the H2H champion Ice Hogs, improving to 16-8, and will add another $5.00 to their 2015 winnings. Having claimed the H2H title last week, the Ice Hogs will finish one game better than the Flyers and Ducks, their record 17-7.

Bluliners: 49.0
Timbers: 44.1

The 8th place (overall) Bluliners improved to 9-15, a record that will pay GM Hamilton $18.00. The Timbers also draw the curtain on 2015 with a record of 9-15.

Misconducts: 79.2
Ice Cats: 46.0

The 5th place Misconducts were the best team of the final week, a number that allowed them to beat the Ice Cats but placed them 2.8 behind the 4th place Polar Bears. The Misconducts finish the season with a record of 8-16; the Ice Cats, also 8-16.

Redliners: 38.0
Dream Team: 36.2

The 7th place Redliners depart 2015 with a mark of 11-13 ($22.00). In 6th place overall, the Dream Team's record of 12-12 will yield $24.00.

Congratulations to the Flyers.. Well played, sir.. My estimation I only left about 70 points on the bench from bad mismanagement, so I still couldnt catch you guys..

Great job as always, Scotty.. Hoping we are golfing this summer..
