Boston Blazers Dominate Colorado Mammoth

By Melissa Dafni

At the beginning of the season, many people picked the Boston Blazers to finish number one or pretty close to it.  With a talented offense compromised of Casey Powell, Dan Dawson, Josh Sanderson and now Ryan Powell, they're certainly a force to be reckoned with.  The Mammoth kept Sanderson to three goals, and Dawson and Casey Powel to one goal each. (Ryan Powell was a healthy scratch.)

One would think that if your defense can put the kibosh on your opponent's leading scorers, you stand a pretty good chance of winning.  Unfortunately, once again, the Mammoth offense didn't do their part.

Einstein defined insanity as doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.  

Apparently the Mammoth offense suffers from insanity.  How else can you explain their same predictable play every game?  They play flat, pass the ball around a few times and as the shot clock expires pretty much shoot at the goalie's chest or 5-hole which as you'd expect the goalie blocks every time.  They don't work as a team to make things happen.  They don't cut, they don't pick and roll, they don't move.  Yet they expect to score. Yep, this team must be insane.
