Major knew his team survived a stern test.
“That’s a big win,” Major said. "(CBA/J-D) is a very good team. Things didn’t go their way at the beginning of the year. They’re hitting their stride right now and they’re going to have a good end to the season. So for us to get that out of the way was huge.”
“It was tough to take, but it’s part of the game,” McKie said. “We had plenty of opportunities. We found some things we need to work on against (Skaneateles).”
CBA/J-D returns to action quicker than the Lakers, going to New Hartford on Friday for a 6:30 p.m. faceoff. Skaneateles is off until next Tuesday when it hosts Cazenovia at Allyn Arena in advance of a critical Jan. 25 home game against Oswego.
