The Stars haven’t won since 29 September, but have picked up a point in their last four games in all competitions, and coach Omar Pacha thinks it’s the perfect time to turn that around.
“It is a big opportunity to get back to winning ways at home . We have been starting weekends away for the most part of the season, so it will be fun to be completely fresh in front of our fans. MK are a very hardworking team that seem to be playing short but give their 100%.”- Omar Pacha (Head Coach, Dundee Stars)
The Lightning prop up the Elite League table at the moment with no wins in two league games, but yesterday added to the side with the addition of import forward Robbie Baillargeon.
“This is the start of 3 games in a tough 3 night weekend. The process continues to learn and move our team structure forward. We want to be as disciplined as possible to limit Dundee’s chances on the Powerplay. Our strength is competing 5 on 5 and limiting the puck possession time the Stars have in our defensive zone.” – Doug McKay (Head Coach, MK Lightning)
