Captain's Corner - Frustration with last weekend, looking ahead

Each week during the 2012-13 season, Metro Jets’ captain Matt Stirling will give his thoughts on topics surrounding the team as it makes its way through the North American 3 Hockey League grind.

-- On losing on the road to Michigan and at home to Cleveland last weekend.

This weekend, we really only played two good periods of hockey and that was against Cleveland. The Michigan game, we came out flat and didn't compete very well in that game. The Cleveland game, we fought well and still came up short.

-- On frustration maybe starting to set in.

Either way with any team, there is still some frustration. When you play well and you don't get the results, it is easy to become frustrated. The only thing is that it is a long year and we are just getting started.

-- On any messages the team received from head coach Jason Cirone last weekend.

Both games, the message was clear that we needed to pick up our play and we finally did so towards the end of the Cleveland game. The way we played was not very good and it can't happen again.

-- On playing at home against Flint Saturday and at Battle Creek Sunday afternoon.

For both games, I'm looking for us to play a quality 60 minutes and get the wins. The points are at a premium now and we can't afford to give up many more games.
