They have a history and tradition of winning in Campbell River and they expect nothing less than to be in this series every year. And that's the type of tradition we're looking to build here. Right now we've got a lot of veterans who just grew accustomed to being knocked out in the first round and we want to change that. We have no illusions this is going to be an easy series just because of the standings. Campbell River expects to win it every year and we need to work hard to show we belong.
When you're at the top you're the team everybody gets up for. We had a team beat us the other night and you would have thought they won the Stanley Cup by the way they were yelling and whooping down the hall. The good thing is, that gives our guys the extra incentive to win. They don't like to hear that.
I love the way we came out in the first period. But then we had a four-minute power play and only got two shots on goal and in a game like this you just can't do that. We sat back and got complacent and against a veteran team like (the Braves) they'll beat you every time. We have to stay up for the entire game and play with urgency.
He scores goals in bunches so its obvious we're going to need him and everybody else to show up for the next two games. When we don't bring our speed to a game we're a pretty average team but on the nights we're flying we're pretty much unstoppable. I think the guys realize what team we need out there to wrap this thing up.
