Shreveport Mudbugs Set to Return to Home Ice This Weekend
It's been several weeks since we got to enjoy a Mudbugs home game at George's Pond.
Now, the wait has come to an end. The Mudbugs went on quite the streak of away games over the past several weeks, putting together a nice little win streak while they were at it. The 'Bugs are currently riding high on a six-game win streak. That's not all, as we wrote about a couple of weeks ago, the Shreveport Mudbugs also managed to secure a spot in the playoffs during their current win streak. After sweeping the Wichita Falls Warriors in Texas, the Shreveport Mudbugs became the first team from the South division to clinch a playoff spot.
I know, we're spoiled when it comes to playoff hockey. Believe it or not, the Mudbugs have only missed the playoffs one time in the history of the organization spanning over two decades. That's impressive, to say the very least. However, any time our 'Bugs make the playoffs it feels special for a multitude of reasons. Of course, the main reason is that the 'Bugs are one step closer to winning their second Robertson Cup Championship.
The second reason is that we fans get to enjoy extra hockey in Shreveport Louisiana.
Now, the playoffs won't start for about another month, and we still have a handful of regular-season home games to get to before the playoff stretch begins. The first of those remaining regular-season home games come this weekend as the Mudbugs take on the Odessa Jackalopes Friday and Saturday night.
