Stayner has two more games to play so they have the opportunity to win both and finish the season ahead of us. If they tie or lose we will be tied for first. Our kids have had a great season. They work well as a team and they listen to what we ask of them in the dressing room and what we communicate on the bench about passing an cycling the puck. We do a lot of puck movement in practice. We focus on cycling and a lot of team oriented drills rather than individual. They’ve bought into what we are preaching. We told the kids no matter what happens they should be proud of themselves.”
