Duluth, Minn. - Playing under pressure is nothing new for Duluth East. As one of the top teams in the region, senior Phil Beaulieu says they are used to having a target on their back.
"Just being Duluth East, everyone wants to come out and beat us and that helps us definitely be prepared for every game and if we're not, then bad things can happen," says Beaulieu.
The Greyhounds are the top seed in Section 7AA and Head Coach Mike Randolph thinks they're playing some of their best hockey now.
"We're happy with where we're at. We're starting to put the puck in the net based on our scores lately and hopefully that continues into the playoffs," says Randolph.
Senior Defenseman Alex Trapp is one of just four seniors and he's proud of the way younger players have stepped up.
"I'm really confident in the guys. We have a really young locker room, but I have a lot of faith in them and I think everything is going to go well," says Trapp.
