The South Carolina Stingrays had work to do to get into the playoffs. With three weeks left in the regular season, the Rays were in sixth place in the Eastern Conference, needing a top-four finish to make the playoffs.
With just six games left, they had moved up one spot. So the Stingrays did what they had done all season: Fight until the end.
The Stingrays rattled off six straight victories to end the regular season and make the playoffs where the regular season champion Florida Everblades were waiting.
“I thought our guys did a great job coming together, responding to some adversity throughout the season,” head coach Ryan Blair said.
