Trimm excited by Braehead return

Canadian forward Neil Trimm believes victory for Coventry Blaze against former club Braehead Clan on Saturday can be the perfect pick-me-up.

Blaze will be looking to return to winnings ways after bowing out of the Challenge Cup with defeats to Cardiff Devils and Manchester Storm last weekend.

After the trip to Glasgow, Blaze play their final Group B game at home to Cardiff on Sunday (5.15pm face-off).

Trimm said: “We played well in Cardiff and worked our tails off, we just did not get the result. Sunday was disappointing. We did not execute and bring what was needed to win that game.

“We have only played nine games and we are at .500. We want to take the two points and hopefully build some momentum. Sometimes we look like a contender and are as good as any team in the league and the next game we might struggle.

“It is frustrating for us and the fans but the consistency will come. I have played on teams when it takes time for the chemistry to develop.

“We are a confident group and we have some good players who are on the verge of tearing it up. It takes time but we are getting better.

“I am really happy with the group of guys, it is one of the best I have played with. The results have been a little disappointing but it will change and we will get better.”

Trimm is looking forward to his first return to Glasgow – and hopes to mark it by helping Blaze to victory.

He said: “It will be nice to see everyone, it is a place I enjoyed a lot of success. There are a lot of good people in the organisation and the fans’ support was tremendous but it will be good to steal two points.”
