    The Bismarck Bobcats continue to roll.    If you haven't see the Bobcats play yet, you're missing out. Tia Streeter-KX Sports: They're the only team in the NAHL to have clinched a playoff berth. But
Bismarck, ND -

Nobody's perfect. It's a lesson the Bobcats did not want to learn. Friday nights loss to Alexandria at the VFW marked the first time the Bobcats lost at home since October 15, 2011. Giving the team a feeling they didn't want to feel again.

Bobcats Forward Frankie DeAugustin said of the loss, "It was kind of an awakening for us like coach said we have too many chiefs on the team not enough Indians so hopefully an awakening for us to be more realistic, we can't win them all so it definitely helped out, and we came out the next night and were able to win."

Bryce Anderson, Bobcats Defensemen, added, "We weren't playing our best game, and we know we can play a lot better than that so we're basically going to go out and play better in practice everyday and what we're working for in the end."

The Bobcats have one of the most explosive offenses you can find in the league, but they do have their struggles on the defensive side of the puck which was evident in their loss. However, the good thing about the NAHL is a team can turn a bad Friday game around into a good Saturday game and that's just what the Cats did.

Frankie DeAugustine said of the game Saturday against Bruins, "We want to do everything in the offensive zone and it kind of hurts us because we need to play both ways and get back in the D zone and work just as hard to get the puck out and then after that it's pretty fun."

Even though Bismarck beat Austin, Bryce Anderson knows there is work to be done on the defensive side of the puck, "We definitely have to tighten up on our D end and that's what our coaches and Layne are stressing on so we're going to work hard in practices on our D end so we have to be perfect on that and then in the offensive end, it's whoever can bury the puck, it's all fun in that end, but it's hard work in the D end."
