The New England Black Wolves are currently in last place in the eastern division standings. After going 2-0 to start the season they’ve struggled mightily. They are two games out of a playoff spot behind a Buffalo Bandits team with a lot of talent.
So it makes sense to question if they will be a playoff team, right?
Not to Bill O’Brien.
“Are you’re joking? That’s a joke, right?” he replied in an article on Lacrosse Magazine. “We’re going to make the playoffs. We’re going to make a run.
“This is the best team in the NLL. I’m sure of it and I think everyone in this locker room is. It’s just a matter of putting it all together. We made some good acquisitions this week. Last night was a tough physical game so it was good to get in there and mix it up. Tonight we came to Buffalo, one of the best barns to play in, and we get the win.”
Bill O’Brien, who got semi-famous this season thanks to his brawl with Stephen Keogh, predicted the Black Wolves in the playoffs.
