COWNIE SET FOR WEEKEND TREBLE

Dundee Stars forward Jordan Cownie says the mood is good in the camp as Omar Pacha’s side get ready for a gruelling three-game weekend.

Stars begin in Belfast tonight (Friday), before two games against Fife Flyers, in Kirkcaldy on Saturday then at home on Sunday night.

And Cownie was in confident as his team look to build from their 2-1 home win over Glasgow Clan, a game the Scot scored in.

“Spirits are high going into the weekend,” the 23-year-old told Stars TV. “The guys are getting to know each other well on the ice too and it’s definitely going in a positive direction.

“It’ll be a tough trip going to Belfast, but if we stick to our game plan, I’m hopeful we can nick a couple of points there then we can come back up the road and do the business against Fife as well.

“When all the fans show up, it gives the boys an extra 10-15% than it would, compared to an emptier building, but we know Fife will bring a big support.

“If we can outnumber them in force, I’m sure we can get the job done.

“I thought we had a good weekend overall last week.  Saturday, Belfast came hot out of the gates and we expected that, but we gathered after 10 minutes and played well.

“That followed into Sunday night and we spoke in the room about what we had to address and felt we executed it well and got the two points against Glasgow Clan.

“It’s huge to get those points and we had to make the most of having the two home games.  Getting all four would have been unreal, but after Saturday, we had to bounce back and we did.”
