Wednesday's games came down to tight finishes.

"We just need to continue to grow and get more comfortable with the ice, play up little by little, and just try and hope we get enough wins in the round robin to qualify for the playoff".

The round robin resumes Friday with two more games.

"It's night and day different, obviously", Fenson said.
