If you are a fan of the New England Black Wolves, you have been on the edge of your seat all season.
New England has not made things easy this year, keeping just about everything close. Several games have come down to the wire and the team didn’t know its playoff fate until very late.
Combine this with a number of midseason trades and an East Division in the NLL where every team has spent time in first and last place — and heading into the final week of the season no team was more than 1.5 games out of first place — and you get one exhilarating, unpredictable ride.
"It’s been a year I have never seen," said Black Wolves coach Glenn Clark, who played in the NLL for nine years beginning in 1998 and began coaching in the league immediately following his retirement. "Nobody is in and nobody is out."
Prior to the April 29 regular-season finale against the Georgia Swarm, the Black Wolves played three overtime games, which is the most in the league. They also have played four one-goal games.
