continued "It was important for us to keep it serious and stay with the game plan," said Hudak.
Jimmy Brady gave G/M/S a little lift when he scored midway through the third period to end Shaker/Colonie's shutout bid, but by then it was far too late for the Storm to mount a comeback.
Despite the mounting losses, Koivula said his players are happy to be playing.
"A lot of these kids love to play hockey. I don't think winning is their motivation," said Koivula. "They just want to be out there."
G/M/S visits Niskayuna/Schenectady (5-4-0, 6-9-1) next Saturday, while Shaker/Colonie travels to the Lake Placid Tournament -- an event that coincides with the Empire State Winter Games.
