The Stars visit Glasgow Clan on Saturday night (face-off 7pm) in their only fixture of the weekend and the Canadian center knows that it won’t be an easy match to win.
He said: “It’s never easy against Glasgow, we are going to have to go there and work hard like we did last Friday.”
Dundee stormed to a 6-3 home victory over the Clan last week after a big third period put them out of reach.
Beauregard continued: “We need those points more than anything but at the end of the day it’s still a hockey game.
“So, we need to stay in the moment and do our best to win.”
The Stars and Glasgow are only separated by four points with the Tayside team in ninth and Clan seventh.
However, Zack Fitzgerald’s men have a game in hand but this next clash will be another key battle in both teams push to reach the playoffs.
“We all know the importance of this match and we just want to get back to playing our game, which is playing with speed and grit”, added Beauregard.
“We need this game and I am sure that everybody will be ready to go.”
However, both sides have been hit with injuries in recent weeks and Glasgow will be without at least three players for Saturday’s clash, while Dundee are set to be without two, maybe also three skaters.
Discussing how tough it has been to play short of bodies, Beauregard shared that every player is giving it their all to fill the gaps in the line-up.
He said: “I think we did well, all the guys stepped up their game and everybody was working so hard to still have a chance to win but the reality is once Reilly (O’Connor) and Kris (Inglis) are back, it will help a lot.”
“We need every guy in that looker room to help get the job done.”
As Saturday’s trip to Glasgow is the Stars only fixture of the weekend, the home match will be on Sunday, February 9 as Dundee welcome Guildford Flames to the Dundee Ice Arena.
