The Coachella Valley Firebirds did not hold a morning skate ahead of Game Five on Saturday.
One would assume it was because the team wanted to save its legs after a long postseason run that has seen them play a league-high 23 playoff games. Or maybe because they wanted to go over game film inside the locker room.
Nope. According to Firebirds media — KESQ sports reporter Blake Arthur — the team had to change hotels. The team is now staying 40-plus minutes away from Hershey’s Giant Center.
