Captain's Corner - Pittsburgh, stepping up, Mountain Cats

Each week for the rest of the 2013-14 season, Metro Jets’ captain Zack MacKay 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 last weekend's split at home with Pittsburgh.

We played really well the first game, we kept it simple. The second was a struggle. They were just beating us to all the loose pucks, capitalizing on most our mistakes, and that led to a loss. It's in the past now, nothing to dwell on.

-- On who has been stepping up their game for the Jets lately.

A lot of the guys have stepped up, especially (goaltender) Trevor Kalinowski. He's been giving us the chances we need to win games with big saves.

-- On how important each game is from here on out.

The rest of the games are really important. We have to be ready to play each and every game if we want to make a run for playoffs. The schedule is definitely in our favor to do so and there's no reason we shouldn't make it.

-- On this weekend's home-and-home series with the Michigan Mountain Cats.

The keys for the weekend against the Mountain Cats are going to be keeping it simple, just as Coach Q has taught us to do. When we play a simple game for a full 60 minutes and play between the whistles, we give ourselves a very good chance at winning any hockey game.
