Captain's Corner - Toledo, NA3HL Top Prospects, Pittsburgh

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 splitting with Toledo, the team they are chasing for the final East Division playoff berth, this past weekend.

Friday’s win was much needed, while the loss Saturday won't make or break us getting a playoff spot – it was still a huge disappointment.

-- On the chances of still making the NA3HL playoffs.

The team knows what's needed from here on out and at this point, it's do or die. We could possibly get away with one loss, but that would put a lot of weight on our shoulders from there on out.

-- On his role as captain at this stage of the season.

As captain, I really need to keep the team focused and motivated on and off the ice. I try to lead by example – a big hit, a solid penalty kill, a shorthanded goal, anything I can do.

-- On playing in the NA3HL Top Prospects Tournament this week with teammates Kyle Shreve, Alex Holm, Carter Reid and Brad Hepler.

This week at Top Prospects, we all hope to play well and play our game, keeping it simple and sticking to our strengths. Each one of us would like to get noticed at the showcase, but I'm sure so would everyone else. Keeping it simple would likely help us stick out.

-- On next weekend's road trip to Pittsburgh.

With the final road trip coming up, I'm hoping it helps bring everyone closer and really get everyone on the same page. A sweep on the road would be huge for us and I'm sure we can do it if we can play two games for the full 60 minutes.
