Captain's Corner - Quad City, Cats, NA3HL Showcase

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 sweeping Quad City last weekend.

The Flint game was a tough one to swallow losing by only one goal (on Feb. 7), but it was nice to rebound against Quad City a few days later. Quad City didn’t have a good showing against us and we were able to take advantage of that in both games. I think the games in Quad City showed when we play our best we are a tough team to beat. The way we played those games are the way we should play every game.

-- On Doug Andrews' big series against Quad City.

Doug played well in both games during the weekend and in the second one, it seemed to be everything that he touched in the offensive zone went in. Performances like that come along rarely and I’m glad he was able to have it because of his recent struggles.

-- On beating the Michigan Mountain Cats this past Wednesday night.

Michigan was another good game. We played well at some points in the game and awful in others, so we need to get back to practice to work on a few things. The good part about the game was we came out with two points and keep moving in the right direction.

-- On the NA3HL Showcase this weekend and early next week in Troy.

I’m at a point now where I just want to keep winning and make the playoffs. The end goal is to win the Silver Cup and we can do that. The wins start in Troy and will be tough to get, but if we play how we are capable of, we should be just fine.
