Mayor Sarno Thrilled with Springfield Thunderbirds Calder Cup Run

|   City News

As I was leaving our MassMutual Center, aka the ‘Thunderdome’, after a truly exhilarating late 4-3 comeback playoff victory by our beloved Springfield T-Birds Wednesday evening and the place was packed and the atmosphere was electric.

Workhorse James Neal scored the game winner with seconds left in the game and goalie Joel Hofer once again ‘stood on his head’ stopping a barrage of shots and of course the steady leadership of Captain Tommy Cross too. 

Thank you to our local ownership team led by managing partner Paul Picknelly and ‘wiz-kid’ team President and GM Nate Costa for their dedicated efforts and leadership both on and off the ice.  We are witnessing something truly special.  Are our T-Birds a team of destiny – you betcha!  See you at the games as our T-Birds continue their quest to bring the Calder Cup home – ‘be part of the magic!’

Domenic J. Sarno
