Finnerty “proud” of four-point weekend

Braehead Clan boss Ryan Finnerty saluted his team for a four-point weekend, but refused to single anyone out for special praise.

The 3-2 overtime win on Saturday at Sheffield Steelers combined with Friday’s 2-1 victory over Manchester Storm meant it was just the third time this season that Clan had collected maximum points from the weekend.

“We’re short and a little banged up, but the guys stuck with it and made some big kills late in crucial against arguably one of the best teams in the league,” said Finnerty.

“We executed a gameplan in the way we wanted and I’m not going to single out any particular player. We had a great performance as a group and guys played out all over the ice.

“We had a common goal to get the points and we did that. We competed from the back out and scraped two wins against two high octane offensive teams.

“I think on Friday we played well and we competed well on Saturday. Our defensive zone is probably the best it’s been all season, but we’re not scoring as much as we’re used to.

“But I was happy for the way we rolled up. Our players did well in getting on the forecheck, creating some good looks, but overall it was a good weekend and I’m proud of my guys.”
