Afternoon Line

“The players know where we’re at. The time crunch is on them. They know what’s left. They know what the standings are. We can pretend it’s game 31, but it doesn’t feel that.

“...We’ll prepare the same way. We want them to play loose, we want them to play free – we’ve used that word a lot of times. We want them to play emotionally engaged in the game. If we get those ingredients, we’ll be OK.”

-San Jose coach Tod McLellan as the Sharks prepare to face the Dallas Stars tonight.  More on the Sharks from David Pollak of Working the Corners.

How about you stop talking about this the same way you talked about it 2 months ago?  Clearly what you were doing then wasn’t working so, and I know this is crazy, but maybe it’s time to try something new.
