Dundee Stars‘ Head Coach Marc LeFebvre was a relieved man after seeing his team finally pick up their first league points of the season on Sunday.
Despite the 3-2 victory over Manchester Storm, LeFebvre believes his team still has a lot of work to do ahead of Wednesday’s trip to Edinburgh Capitals.
“I’m pleased the guys got the win – we needed it for a bit of confidence,” LeFebvre told Stars TV.
“I thought we had a great first period other than their powerplay at the end where we gave another late goal.
“The second period I didn’t think we were too great. We have to be better defensively – we got too run and gun and we played into their hands a little bit.
“Our power play came up huge tonight though – we were begging for it last weekend to get going.
“We worked on it very hard this week and had two powerplay goals, but we had a lot of missed chances and opportunities.
“Guys have got to start bearing down, but we found a way to win it in the end.
“It’s going to be a dog fight every game in this conference. We still have 31 dog fights until the end of the season here.
“Edinburgh are a tough team – they’ve just beaten a good Coventry team and we have to be ready.”
