He’s not one to want to get ahead of himself but a stretch of solid starts have been a major positive for the Soo Greyhounds of late, and for coach John Dean the hope is that starting well is becoming “a habit.”
On Wednesday night, the Greyhounds jumped out to a 3-0 lead through one period and picked up a 6-3 Ontario Hockey League victory over the Sudbury Wolves at the GFL Memorial Gardens.
“I’m really happy with the way the guys are preparing themselves,” Dean said. “That’s four or five good starts in a row now, so it seems to be hopefully turning into a habit.”
Dean went on to say that, in the midst of a four-game winning streak, confidence is going up for the Greyhounds.
“Confidence is 90 per cent of the battle,” Dean said. “Guys are starting to feel confident and you’re really starting to see the Soo Greyhounds style. Sometimes with a young team, our style takes a little bit takes a little bit to get used to. After what we’ve gone through, I’m hesitant to say we’ve turned the corner, but I like what I’m seeing.”
