NEWS: Captain Dyson ready for the Storm – Glasgow Clan

Aspray Glasgow West sponsored Glasgow Clan captain Dyson Stevenson says he’s glad to be back in the rink, if anything, for the sake of his relationship.
The team return to action in the Premier Sports Elite League on Tuesday against Manchester Storm, face off 7pm and are already looking for two points to get back on track.
And for Stevenson, he says it’s been a period of reflection since their last game on Boxing Day, a 5-1 loss at Belfast Giants.
“It’s definitely been tough, but it’s certainly good to get a break,” he said. “The Christmas break is crazy, even in the NHL how it’s only a two or three break.
“Obviously with us, it was Covid that’s keep us out and you can almost feel yourself getting out of shape every day, but you do the best you can rather than lay around.
“It’s also given us a chance to reflect on the 15 games so far and figure out where we went wrong so it’s been exciting to get back in the rink.  My girlfriend was getting sick of me so it’s definitely good to get back.
“We’re excited to be back and we’re looking to get back in the win column straight away and we have to play smart, not waste too much energy and play well.”
Ryan Finnerty’s side will provide tough opposition with a win apiece from the two previous meetings so far, both in Manchester.
But Stevenson is relishing the challenge of not only coming up against what he regards as a physical team, but the reduced crowd that will be present, with only 200 allowed in accordance with Scottish Government Covid guidelines.
“We’ve got Manchester first and I’ve found they’re one of the harder teams to play against, especially in their own rink,” he added.
“They’re a more physical team and will give us a good test on our return.  Speaking to one of the guys I know at Cardiff, he reckoned we’re a very physical team as well so we certainly match up well.
“I know we can beat them and they’ve just had their top scorer come back so we’ll need to put a lot of shots up. 
“Not having the fans in the way we would normally certainly brings a new challenge with the atmosphere.  
“They give us a lot when we’re out there, but we’re focussed on the two points and we’ll try our best to win the games coming up and give them a show when they come back.”
