Captain's Corner - Cincinnati, Quenneville, Flint 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 splitting last weekend in Cincinnati.

Our first game was a disappointment. We were in the game going into the third. Once we got out there in the third, we took a couple penalties and they capitalized on their chances. Sunday’s game was a different story. We came out as a team and worked together and came away with a big win.

-- On splitting the last two road trips - losing Saturday, winning Sunday.

I think the guys aren't really ready to play on Saturday, so we don't play our best game and we get beat. After we lose, I feel like the guys get serious about the weekend and come out hard on our Sunday games and that's why we win on Sunday all the time.

-- On adjusting to head coach Justin Quenneville.

I would say the team feels extremely comfortable with Q on the bench. Q is a great coach and a great guy. He is definitely one of those coaches that will do anything to help his players out and I think that's what the boys like about him most.
-- On this weekend's home-and-home with Flint.

This weekend is going to be tough. Flint is a very good team, but everyone loses sooner or later and I think this weekend, the guys want to come out and make a statement by sweeping the best team in the league. We just need to make sure we come out to play on Saturday and Sunday, not just one day.
