Captain's Corner - Wins over Flint, Battle Creek, Alex Nedeljkovic

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 beating Flint and Battle Creek last weekend and scoring 17 goals in the process.

We played well and when we score, they seem to come in bunches. Our power play worked well the first game and led us to the win. The energy from the first game just carried over in to the second game. It was good to see us play well and get the four points we needed.

-- On different players contributing over the weekend.

It showed that guys can be put in the lineup and can produce. The thought that every guy in the lineup can be a threat to the other team is one that many teams in our league will have a problem with.

-- On new goalie Alex Nedeljkovic.

Alex played well for us in the two games he played. He came in from Plymouth of the OHL and fits in nicely with the guys that we have. He needed some starts to keep him in game shape and will be here with us for the time being. I don’t know how long he’ll be here, but he’s fit in nicely so far.

-- On getting the two wins and then sitting idle this weekend.

Whenever we string some wins together, it is always nice, but yes, we seem to get hot right before idle weekends. I think we are progressing as a team and will be fine with the weekend off here.
