Atlanta Gladiators Weekly: Week 2

AG L2

The Atlanta Gladiators (0-4-0-0, 0 Points) opened the 15th anniversary home schedule at the Infinite Energy Arena on Friday, October 20 against the same Florida Everblades (4-0-0-0, 8 Points) club that hung a pair of road losses on Atlanta on the opening weekend of the 2017 ECHL season just a week prior. The Gladiators were looking to even the mark with the Blades on the second weekend of the season, but Florida headed back home with two more wins after Atlanta fell by a 4-2 count on Friday and a 5-1 final on Saturday.

In my opinion, those voicing that thought are overreacting to a pair of disappointing losses.
