Ants loose before game

Just got back to my seat after spending some pre-game time inside the Mad Ants locker room.

The group is loose, and Rod Wilmont was singing, trying to keep everyone up. But Ants coach Joey Meyer says he’s starting to feel the discomfort of a five-game losing streak.

The Civic Center in Erie is also a hockey rink, and there is ice beneath us. The difference is that the dasher boards are still up, which makes things a bit odd.

Meyer said the emphasis for tonight’s game will be the big guys getting back on defense, and reversing the ball on offense. He said he wasn’t “asking,” but instead “telling” them.

Check in later.
