Interview with last nights star of the night------------- Kevin Smith.
Kevin Smith (Colonials)
1. 6 to 4 win last night. What can you say about the overall team effort? . I thought the effort was great from everyone, we all played our part and did what we needed to get the win!
2. You had a big 3rd period to lead the team to a win. Did you change your approach at all when the 3rd period started? . Yeah, I felt pretty good about my game last night, a couple dumb decisions led to chances for them so I need to clean that up a little bit. I don’t know if the approach was much different, I think I felt some urgency to create some chances, I didn’t want to lose again!
3. What do you think was the difference between this game with the Slap Happy compared to the loss against them a couple weeks ago? The difference to me was the first period. Last time out they jumped out ahead of us early and we didn’t recover from that. This time we started out better and as the game went on we created a lot of scoring chances.
4. Goalies sometimes get overlooked. How do you think Tim Herman played last night in net? Tim is very steady, you know what your gonna get on game to game basis. He comes out and takes a lot of the net away. He made some big saves at key times to keep us in it!
5. The Walkers (with some young talent) next week followed by the Eagles to close out the regular season. The Eagles should have Cody there for that game. Are you looking forward to that game with the Eagles considering you weren’t there for the first game against them? Absolutely looking forward to it. Anytime you get to play a good team, especially one who is favored to win the title is a good opportunity to see where you stack up. They are solid at every position so it should be a fun challenge to see if we can repeat the outcome from last time out!
