Yeah, it's just one win, but it's a start.
After losing eight straight, the Kitchener Rangers have played five solid periods of hockey - the final two in Kingston where they rallied for a point in a shootout loss and yesterday's shootout win over Ottawa.
Three points in two games is a step in the right direction.
I caught up with Justin Bailey after yesterday's game. The Buffalo area winger has four points in his past four games.
He said the coaches were on him to pick up the slack and that he expected more out of himself as well. The secret, he says, is just plain working harder.
And lately, it's looking good.
Speaking of those Rangers, have you taken a look at the roster lately? This entire club - save Radek Faksa (could technically return but likely won't), Ben Thomson and Ben Fanelli - could be back next year. Toss in a new import and a first round pick and that conceivably leaves one open roster spot.
With Kegan Blasby, Jacob Cascagnette, Scott Pedersen, Ty Learn and Mark Bzowey already committed to the club that doesn't leave much room for additions, unless the Rangers clear some space by the trade deadline.
Not to mention if the Rangers can convince drafted Americans Charles McAvoy (defence), Luke Opilka (goalie) and Jeremy Bracco (forward) to come north.
But these are good problems to have.
