We were talking here that this team doesn’t lose two a row, Duchene said. That’s the attitude we want to have so it was great to bounce back and go to 7. Right now, we’re rolling, we’re feeling good. We’ve got to get as points as we can cause we’re going to go through some adversity the and we’ve got to be ready for it and get as points as we can while we’re hot.
