Trevor Stewart; Head Coach - Fairbanks Ice Dogs>>"It was huge for us. We've not found a way to Sweep in, I think, five weeks previous. So, very important for us especially getting points and moving up in the standings. We are where we expect and want to be in the standing right now. But we've got a big three game set against a team that, you know, there was some animosity to finish the weekend. It's gonna be a big test. The Standings aren't up in the locker room. Obviously they're aware of where we are in the situation. As the season progresses we focus on getting better every single day. That will take care of itself and in the second half hopefully we're putting the standings up and we're in a good position."
