Captain's Corner - weekend split, Flint thoughts, Cincinnati

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 losing to Flint, beating the Mountain Cats last weekend.

I thought we had a decent weekend. Even though we lost to Flint, I still think we played a great game. The reason we lost that game is because we spent all night in the box. And when we weren't in the box, we played a great game and probably would have went into overtime 0-0. The game against the Mountain Cats was pretty rough – we did not play our game and we let them hang around all game, but we still came away with the win and that's all that matters.

-- On the different between the Jets and Flint.

Flint’s a good team, but are they a great team? No, I don't think so. The only difference between Flint and us is that they take advantage of other team’s mistakes and we are struggling with that. When we have the opportunity to make other teams pay, we don't. We let them hang around, but that will all change. We know we can beat any team in the league and we just need to want it more than they do.

-- On playing Cincinnati on the road this weekend.

We prepare like we do for any other team – work hard all week in practice. Try to correct the mistakes we made in the week before and just come out and play to our potential day in and day out.
