Veteran Coyotes Need to Stay Calm

From Jim Gintonio at The Arizona Republic,

Young team or not, losing is never easy to take, and Coyotes coach Wayne Gretzky says it’s important that players not get caught up in a mode of frustration.

“They want to do well, they want to win, and you can get frustrated,” he said. “The worst thing that could happen for this team is that our older guys show that frustration because it bleeds through the hockey team. All of a sudden, you see a guy like (Daniel) Carcillo out there and being very frustrated.

“As I said to Shane (captain Shane Doan) … our older guys got to stay calm and relaxed. If they can stay calm and cool on the bench … it’s infectious to the younger guys, and it’s imperative that they stay focused.”
