MICHEL Dobron looks to use Sunday’s sensational, come from behind win over Scottish rivals, Braehead Clan, who have signed Harry Quast as a replacement for Trevor Hendrikx, as a launchpad.
The 6-4 success, after being 1-0 and 2-1 down, means the Edinburgh side are ninth in the ten-strong Elite League.
And they face two of the current top three this weekend, visiting Cardiff Devils, the long-time runaway pace-setters, on Saturday and entertaining third-placed Belfast Giants on Sunday (6pm).
Dobron’s men have 13 points from 14 games but go into the tough double-header on the back of Sunday’s moral-boosting win, their second straight success in the league.
Cardiff have won their last four and have 31 points from 19 starts while Giants have 20 points from 17 games but have lost their last three matches.
Czech Republic-born Dobron said: “I am happy with Sunday. We had a very good result against Braehead and we have another two points which is good.
“Saturday, at Sheffield in the Challenge Cup (when Capitals lost 7-1 to bow out in the quarter-finals) was disappointing.
“We played well in the first (period) but the second and third were not good.
“The boys came back well on Sunday and we are looking to take more points this weekend against two top teams.”
