True North

Posted on January 24, 2013 by Ted Leonsis

A good blog post by Dump and Chase here. Two games in, the team is struggling with a new system, and acclimating players to new positions and new roles.

Our coach is very analytic and we now have two video coaches - so the team is watching a lot of tape regarding its state of play. It is harder to practice in earnest though, as the team plays three games in four days: tonight at home, Friday on the road and Sunday afternoon back at home.

In a shortened season, repairing the plane while it is flying is the challenge all teams will have. We play 48 games in less than 100 days. A long losing streak is a real set back. A long winning streak sets you up quite well. Read these articles (here and here) from around the web. Like you, I’m hoping to see some progress at home tonight.

End of Tough and Long Road Trip

January 24, 2013

That was quite the game last night. We seemed to be out of it - down by more than 20 deep into the third period.
