from Randy Youngman of the OC Register,
Our whole mentality has to change,” a frowning Selanne said, standing in the middle of an otherwise empty locker room. “We’re thinking too much about scoring right now. We have to get back to our old mindset.”
And that is?
“The last three years, the success we’ve had here . . . our main focus was to shut down goals-against,” said Selanne, who has produced 18 points in 18 games. “We could always find a way to score three or four goals, and sometimes two was enough. But right now it’s more like, let’s score more than them, and the whole mentality has changed.
“We can’t expect to win games 5 to 4. This team has never been like that. Some nights – here and there, maybe – but not on a regular basis. We need to start thinking differently.”
