Charlie Combs bagged his first Dundee Stars goals as Belfast Giants were dumped at the DIA.
Now he wants to make sure the Stars continue their winning run when Fife Flyers come to town.
The 25-year-old winger set up four goals in his first four games with the club but could not find a way to get his own name under the scorers’ column.
The St. Louis, Missouri native ended his short drought on Sunday, opening the scoring with a powerplay goal for Dundee after just three minutes of play against Belfast.
Combs did not stop there and, seven minutes later, smashed home his second powerplay marker.
With Combs’ assistance, the Stars ultimately claimed a 4-2 win from the final game of last weekend’s triple header.
Now, with only one fixture this weekend, Combs is determined to make sure he and his teammates give it their all in Saturday’s derby with Fife Flyers (face-off: 7pm).
He said: “We can come into this weekend knowing we have only one game, so we can play a full 60 minutes as hard as we can and try to keep that confidence growing.
“We have played Fife three times now, we know how they like to play and we know they are going to be hungry.
“So we just have to come prepared to play our game because they are going to come ready to play their best game.
“We have to give it everything for the fans as they love watching us compete and do well so we will be doing it for them.”
Reflecting on a big night for himself against Belfast last weekend, Combs said: “It felt really good to see those hit the net!
“Those were two big points that we needed from Belfast, so just helping the team to win was a great feeling.
“It was finally nice to get that first one and get the monkey off my back.
“Hopefully, we can keep that confidence going into next weekend and throughout the rest of the season.”
