"Our work ethic has to be adjusted," said Marc Berry, Head Coach and GM of the Kings. "From there, everything sort of falls into place. We need to get back to working hard, hitting, and using our speed."
The Kings are coming off a pair of losses to the Virden Oil Capitals over the weekend, including an 8-3 loss on Saturday evening in which they began 2 for 2 on the powerplay, but ended up 2 for 5.
"We were just simple on those first two," said Berry. "We still generated chances on the last couple. Our powerplay hasn't been very good this year, so we were pretty happy with the early success on it in that game."
Heading into tonight's action, the Kings are 10th in the MJHL with a 4-14-0-1 record.
"There is some frustration for sure," said Berry. "A lot of guys just want to put their feet in the sand and stop it. When you get enough of those guys with the same mentality to push through, we'll get out of this, and there's no better night then tonight to start."
Puck drop tonight is set for 7:30.
