Blaze boss happy with positive response

Coventry Blaze chief Danny Stewart hailed his team’s powers of recovery after they bounced back from a home defeat against Cardiff Devils with a comfortable road victory at Dundee Stars.

Blaze lost 7-5 against the Devils on Saturday, but hit back in style the following day to record an impressive 4-0 success over the Stars.

Stewart said: “It’s not an easy to rink to come into especially with the trip up, but we just wanted to stick to our strengths which is our speed.

“We created a lot of opportunities early and were fortunate enough to bury a couple and we hung on from then.

“Credit to the guys, they came here, played a smart road game and executed.

“Saturday was a tough one, because I don’t want to sit here and take away blame from ourselves because we were soft defensively and made too many errors.

“Yes, we played relentless and we kept coming back, we scored goals which is great to see again but we made stupid mistakes on the back-end.

“We were too soft and we just didn’t play smart and it cost us a hockey game.”
