Fisher seeking positive outcome

Drew Fisher hopes Genting Casino Coventry Blaze will use this weekend's games against Dundee Stars and Manchester Storm to gain some momentum going into the play-offs.

Blaze head into the final two fixtures of the Elite League regular season on the back of successive defeats to Sheffield Steelers and Nottingham Panthers.

Chuck Weber's side can pip Dundee to seventh place should they emerge victorious in both matches, of which one must be in regulation time.

Fisher, who has posted 40 points (14 goals and 26 assists) in 58 games in his debut season at the Skydome, is looking for a positive outcome heading into the play-offs.

The American forward said: "We are on a two-game skid but before that we had a five-game winning streak. It is important to have short memories and not get too high or too low.

"We know what we are capable of. We have done some good things but in the last two games we did not do enough of the little things to be successful in play-off hockey.

"We will need to be a little better this weekend to gain some momentum. We want to put in two good performances and also try to finish as high as we can.

"It does not matter who you play in the play-offs, we want to go in with a confident mindset and I am sure the top seeds will be dreading playing us in the first round."

Blaze travel to Dundee on Saturday night (7pm face-off) before facing Manchester at the Skydome on Sunday (5.15pm face-off).
