We Have a Lot of Work to DoPosted on November 07, 2008
It was sweet to get two points against a big division rival last night and I was proud to see our team be resilient and driven and come back for a win late in the game. We do display heart as a unit and the team does play for each other. We have a better record than usual after 12 games in but I don't enjoy seeing us play under our capabilities. We struggle on the power play and with all of our talent, we must be more effective. We pass too much. We don't shoot the puck and generate enough traffic. We are not aggressive enough on our forecheck. We are not making crisp enough outlet passes, D to forwards in transition. We are not taking the body enough. We have too many players that are not being productive and making too many turnovers. We can't stay healthy. And at the game, we must fix the sound system and the one camera that continues to freeze up. And the ice, while much better than past years, must still be improved. We are on it. We are committed to getting it all right. I liked that we got two points. I didn't like how we got them.
