With their current five game winning streak, the Jamestown Ironmen own the best winning percentage in the NAHL.

Finding this success has come from four scoring lines. Jamestown is in the enviable position of having nine players with ten points or more so far.

"You're not going to win a lot of games in this league with just one or two guys scoring. If we want to be a championship team, we are going to need contributions from everyone," said Ironmen defenseman Dylan Zink.

The contributions aren't limited to the frontline players. Twenty-one Ironmen are on the positive side of plus/minus.

"We all know the roles that we have on the team and every one is taking their role and doing what they can to win right now," said Ironmen forward Tyler Dunagan.

The biggest key to success so far this year has been their play at home. Last year, Jamestown was just .500 while playing inside the Ice Arena. This year, they are 10-1-1.

"It's the most important thing. If you can win the majority of your games at home, it puts less pressure on the road. I think if you can do into every road trip and get a split, it is a great weekend," said Ironmen head coach Dan Daikawa.

The Ironmen hit the road this weekend for Port Huron. They return home Friday, November 23rd.
