Malden/East Boston Youth Hockey Update (10/28/2015)
Malden/East Boston Youth Hockey
MEB hockey continues to roll on this fall, with some teams finding their way and
others looking for the winning combination - not unlike the Bruins these days...
Midgets found themsleves with a short bench on Friday night facing a full
Everett/Revere team at the Veteran's Memorial Rink in Everett. With only a

the final buzzer. Their wininig strategy was simple - stay out of the penalty

tournament, which draws teams of at least 10 "adults" to compete for the honor
