The Danbury Hat Tricks have won eight straight games after sweeping a home series with the Port Huron Prowlers on Thursday (12/16/21), Friday (12/17/21) and Saturday (12/18/21). The team is flying high heading into Christmas with a season record of 13-3-1 and 37 points on the year.

Friday's game was a tense one, coming down to a shootout with the Hat Tricks overcoming Port Huron with a final of 6-5. They were facing a three goal deficit at one point but the Tricks rallied, on the backs of Cory Anderson and Jonny Ruiz.
Head coach Dave Macisaac had this to say after Friday's win:
"We didn't play the way we wanted to for most of the game, but we found a way."
Saturday's game ended with a blowout final of 5-1 and another big night for Cory Anderson to push the win streak to eight games. The Hat Tricks lead the league in points but are in second place in the standings behind the Watertown Wolves based on points-percentage.
Their next game comes this Thursday (12/23/21), at home against the Delaware Thunder, a team that has yet to win a game. After that, Danbury heads out on a five game road trip. Although the Hat Tricks are playing great, there is still a long way to go. This is just about 1/4 of the way through their schedule with the season ending in April of 2022.
I think they are going to push through the long season, I think they are going to climb the mountain and end up victorious because they wear the name Danbury on their uniform, and Danbury is tough. When Danbury comes to town we stand on the throats of our opponents, we come to steal your women and precious metals. We leave opposing cities in ruins, soaked in blood and tears.
This is my dramatic movie style quote that I made up for the Danbury Hat Tricks to say in the locker room before their games:
"There is no tomorrow, only today and today we fight. Today we leave it all on the ice, one last time." - Lou Milano
Boom, did you feel that? I know I did. OK, sure it's extremely derivative but I was raised on sports movies like Rocky and I work in corporate America, when am I going to get to say that?
Whatever dramatic saying you want to use, it boils down to this, no one comes into Danbury and picks a fight without us chipping someone's tooth, because this is the D-Block b----.
Ask a friend about #SYB, I can't tell you about the movement here, it's too foul and makes no sense.
Inside the Premier Party for the Danbury Trashers Netflix Documentary
My name is Lou Milano, I am the co-host of the Ethan and Lou Morning Show on I-95. Recently, I attended the local premier of the Netflix film "Untold: Crime & Penalties" about the Danbury Trashers. The Trashers were a United Hockey League team that were around for a short time in the 2000' s in Western, CT but the team and ownership left a lasting impact.
The premier was open to the public and would take place inside the building where the Trashers played hockey, the Danbury Ice Arena. I decided to watch the movie at my house before going to the event. I wanted to use the time at the arena to interview the people in the film, and give an inside look into the night. This was my night out, with the cast of the film and the Trashers.
A Tour of the Ice Arena for the Danbury Hat Tricks Victorious Weekend
This season is underway at the Danbury Ice Arena and it began in victorious fashion. I was in the Arena for Friday and Saturday's games and I experienced the entire thing for you. Once you are done checking this out, you are going to buy tickets, that is not a threat, it's just what is going to happen.
There is something for everyone inside that arena, even if you don't like hockey. There were a ton of activities to be a part of in the Arena, even if you don't like hockey. That's not my style, if I go for a game I want to watch it but all the extras don't hurt the experience one bit,

12 Signs You're a True American 'Tough Guy'
Our culture morphs and those shifts mean certain types of behavior have an expiration date. What you once thought was "cool" or "tough" may make you look like a straight up D-bag now. The problem is, when our culture pivots, not everyone gets the memo.
You could find yourself in a room with someone born in the 60's, another in the 80's, a man who was born in the 90's and another in the 2000's, they are all going to have different ideas about what makes them a man.
What makes you a "tough guy" today? For starters, the term itself is a punch line, if someone calls you a "tough guy", they are picking on you. This list was supposed to be titled "Top Signs You're a Raging Douche" but my editor nixed that, so these are the "Top Signs You're a Real Tough Guy."
