"We started out really strong," said head coach Dan Fortuna.

The team took the lead 2-0 in the first period, but penalty trouble late in the second and third periods coupled with a few lucky bounces helped the Steelers tie the game at 4-4.
While the close score and multiple shots fired at both ends thrilled the fans, Fortuna said neither team was at its strongest defensively.

"They (the fourth line) did a fantastic jobâ€"they really dominated the play when they were on the ice," said Fortuna.

Ice Hawks' head coach Dan Fortuna said he isn't concerned at the moment about the number of goals his team has surrendered, adding he is not too surprised either.

"Because of the schedule we haven't been able to practice between games and that makes it hard to get the players to learn our system," he said."It's been mainly chalkboard sessions and coaching at the bench to get them through the games."
Fortuna said he is confident his players will lower the goals against once the schedule eases off and there is time to do more on-ice drills and familiarize players with their roles.

But less than three weeks later Ross also vacated the Ice Hawks' coaching ranks to serve as Kuss' assistant, leaving the head coaching duties to Dan Fortuna, a former Ice Hawks' captain and assistant coach for the past two seasons.

"I told the players they were going to be hearing the same message that Shane was giving them, just that it was going to be coming from me," Fortuna said, adding his familiarity with the team has helped provide some much needed continuity.

"You want to keep the players on a even keel," Fortuna added.

But Fortuna turned him down, preferring to gain some experience coaching at a minor level before making the step up to Junior B.
Then two seasons ago when Kuss asked again, Fortuna took him up on the offer and now has overall responsibility of guiding the club's fortunes on the ice.
So, does he see his age and lack of seasoning as a hindrance or benefit?
"Would years of experience help someone else in this role?Maybe.For me, no," he said."I don't feel out of place at all."
While Ice Hawks' general manager Peter Idema acknowledged Fortuna has very big shoes to fill, he is confident his young coach is up to the challenge in the same way Kuss was when he took over the reins.
"Shane was 24 when he came to us, so I don't see why Dan would be any different," Idema said, adding club management has decided on Fortuna to lead them through not only the coming post season but into next year's schedule as well.
