Blues Wrapping Up, Godard Optimistic

The playoff match-ups have been finalized for the winter season, team captain, Alain Godard, offensive cruncher, Andrew Stevens and goal tending sensation, Giancarlo Capaz set their sights on cup for the next coming weeks.

"It's hard to not get caught up in the playoff fever," described Stevens who was M.I.A. for the final regular season game, where the Blues were manhandled (or bird-handled?) by the Pelicans, 6-2.

When asked about his uncharacteristic absence for the last game, Stevens replied, "I was not feeling up to par and I didn't want to hold us back if it came to crunch time. I had a good amount of time to rest up and get focussed and I'm looking forward to making a difference in the playoffs."

"[Stevens] could have been a big help out there, anyone would have been a big help, we were flat and they played well," added Capaz in a post-game interview making a reference to several defensive collapses where Capaz faced a barrage of deflections made by his own team.

The Blues have been watching their season sink like an anvil in water losing 4 of their last 5 games and being outscored 32-23. "We can't seem to play a full game. Being blown out or even falling short by a goal or two is really not how you want to see the season close out," noted Capaz.

"We need to pick it up, win the cup and carry over the success when the Shockers take the floor," says Godard.

"The Shockers is where it's at," agrees Capaz.

Stevens was M.I.A before this reporter could get his final comments.

More to come as the Blues will take on the Pelicans in round one starting this Wednesday at 7:30pm.
