Boston Globe Breaks Down Today's Burlington-Needham Super Eight Game

From today's Boston Globe regarding tonight's Super Eight matchup between Burlington (the team in the Super Eight with the highest winning percentage) and Needham (the team with the most wins).

From Boston Sunday Globe-

Needham vs. Burlington The final game is between No. 2 Needham (18-3-1) and No. 7 Burlington (17-2-1) at 7:45 p.m. This is a matchup of league champs, with Middlesex winner Burlington facing off against the Bay State winning Rockets. This is their first meeting of the season.

Needham has beaten tournament foes Xaverian, Hingham, and Malden Catholic and won more games this season than any other Super 8 team.
Needham's challenge will be to handle Burlington's depth. In their preliminary round victory over Arlington Catholic (a 6-1 win), the Red Devils got goals from four different lines.
That kind of offensive firepower will be tough for Needham to stop, not to mention the play of Ben Irwin, Burlington's steady senior goaltender.
