Stewart angered by Blaze collapse

Coventry Blaze Head Coach Danny Stewart admits he was angered by his team’s late collapse against Sheffield Steelers on Sunday.

Blaze trailed 4-2 midway through the final period, but four goals in the final nine minutes handed the the visitors a comfortable victory.

“I’m really disappointed – it’s probably the angriest I’ve been all season,” said Stewart.

“We lost our composure. 2-4, Klotzy goes out and shows great passion. That’s a tough boy he fought and it should rally our guys up, but next shift we go out and lose a battle in front of our net – 2-5 and game over.

“Then we shut off from there. We feel sorry for ourselves and hang our heads. I’m really annoyed.”

Stewart’s team had better luck on Saturday as Barry Almeida’s overtime goal sealed a 5-4 win at Manchester Storm.

“We were not at our best, but we found a way to win a game in a tough building,” added Stewart.

“That’s a good hockey team we played and credit to them for pulling it back. Two points is what we came for and that’s what we left with.”
