Captain's Corner - St. Louis split, Scognamiglio, weekend ahead

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 getting a split on the road at St. Louis this past weekend.

Getting a split this weekend was huge for us. I think we are going to start to turn things around and continue to win because we know we are a winning team. We just need to keep playing the way we can and we will be just fine.

-- On who stepped up in Sunday's 4-3 victory.

I think the whole team stepped up on Sunday and we played as a unit. We all knew that we needed to come out and play a lot better after we got beat 9-3 the day before. I think it all started with our goalie (Kameron Limburg). He made some huge saves for us that really kept us in the game and I think that fired up the team.

-- On new forward Vince Scognamiglio, a St. Louis native, on loan from the OHL's Plymouth Whalers.

Vince added some depth to the lineup. He's a young kid, but he is very smart with the puck and knows what he is doing out there on the ice. He ended up getting hurt in the first game, which sucked because we could have used his skill in the second game, but the rest of the team picked up their game to come away with a big win.

-- On playing Flint and Michigan this coming weekend.

This weekend is going to be a tough. Flint and the Mountain Cats are both good teams, but I know we can beat the both of them if we come out and play like we did on Sunday against the Jr. Blues. We are going to continue to work hard in practice all week like we always do and hopefully, will come away with four points this weekend.
