Stewart’s impressive weekend delights Blaze boss

Coventry Blaze Head Coach Danny Stewart says netminder Brian Stewart’s impressive weekend showing against Manchester Storm was just what his team needed.

The Canadian goalie recorded a shut-out as Blaze won 2-0 in Altrincham on Saturday and he added another solid performance the following day to help the team to a 6-2 victory back on home ice.

“It was a good bounce back from the guys – we competed in all areas and limited our mistakes,” said the Blaze boss.

“We defended better than we have all season and Stewy (Brian Stewart) stopped the pucks he needed to. It was a good all-round game.

“He kept us in it in the opening period at home. We were way too loose in the first giving up three or four odd-man opportunities.

“We talked about puck luck not going our way, but I think we had some on Sunday. They had two sitters at the back-door which for whatever reason they missed.

“We weren’t anywhere near as good as we were on Saturday, but I can’t remember the last time we didn’t play overly well and we found a way to win a hockey game so there’s a lot of good signs from that.”
