Chris Letang I talked about the group still confident streak though. Is that your observation, and how do you maintain that confidence, and not let mistrust creep into the room under these circumstances?
Well, it is not easy, because this is the human side of the sport. When you are going through a challenging time, it is not always easy to ensure that you are playing a confident game and that you are playing an assertive game. But I think the solution is just to make sure we stay in for the moment, and not get confused by all the noise around it. We just had to stay in the moment, focus on the process, and have to dig our way out of it. This is what we are trying to do.
Lots of losses were narrow. loss in the third period; Tonight, he was tied up late and Brandon Tanev scored. Does it make it more difficult for the team to play those close matches? Or is it easier because they know they’re there, and it’s just a matter of crossing over?
I’m not sure I have a great answer for you. I think at the end of the day, you’re going to lose, and that hurts. Because these guys are competitors, and they care. And when we don’t live up to the expectations we have for each other and don’t get results consistently more than we have lately, these guys take it seriously. We all do. I know how interested they are, and like I said, we just have to dig a little bit more. We have to be more determined. I think we have to be more vigilant in some crucial moments of the match. I thought when we got the second goal to equalize it, it was a huge boost off the bench. We had a fair amount of momentum from that in the third period. I thought in the third period, we had a lot of momentum. So it is not encouraging from this point of view. But we have to figure out what we’re going to learn from it, and then we have to pull ourselves together and prepare to win a game right in front of us here.
We saw you guys play around with your front lines and groups a little bit. Was there any consideration for doing the same on the back end as well?
have. There were a lot of different installations going through the boards on the blue line. I’ve seen a fair amount of PO games with Kris Letang; I saw Domo with Jeff Petri; I saw Jean Ruta play with Marcus Peterson. There was a lot of that in the middle of the game, from game to game. We’re trying to figure out what we can do as a coaching crew to try and ignite a spark here, and moving people around the course of the game is part of it.
Do you feel that the death penalty (which ranked 28The tenth In the league enter the game) Were you able to take any steps in the right direction tonight? In general, how would you rate the performance of this unit?
I thought they did a really good job tonight. They had a limited time zone. I thought we did a good job making the entries difficult. We were active on the ice. They score correctly with one of them expiring, I think you could consider it a 5 on 5 goal. It was a bit of a broken play. But I thought overall, it was a lot better.
