Captain's Corner - Cleveland split, Mantovani, this weekend

Each week during the 2013-14 season, Metro Jets’ captain Josh Beleski will give his thoughts on topics surrounding the team as it makes its way through the North American 3 Hockey League season, the 25th for the Jets as a junior franchise. 

-- On positives from last weekend.

I thought we played a lot better than last weekend. We were better in our zone and a lot more physical as a team, but I still don’t think we have reached our full potential.

-- On winning Sunday in a shootout.

The boys showed tons of character in Sunday’s game. We never gave up and we kept playing until the final whistle – that’s what we need to do every weekend. In the end, that win was for (head coach) Jason (Cirone) after all he has done for us. That was the least we could have done for him.

-- On goalie Davide Mantovani getting the win Sunday.

Davide played amazing on Sunday. It was a big win for him and he deserved it. He played on his head all night and bailed us out whenever we got in trouble. He came up huge in the shootout and I think he surprised a lot of us in that game.

-- On hosting Toledo this Friday night, at Michigan Saturday night.

This weekend is going to be tough, but I think if we just come out like we did this past weekend that we will be fine. We just have to make sure we eliminate our mistakes in our own zone and create more scoring chances in the offensive zone.
