Fix The Power Play

12/01/2022 at 7:18am EST

from Ansar Khan of Mlive,

Said Andrew Copp: “Satisfied with the way we came back from 4-1 down, it’s a good sign. But it still sucks right now that we didn’t get the next point. We had a couple of chances to put it away. Makes it sting a lot more than maybe it should.”

Lalonde said it’s frustrating to be 0 for 10 on the power play the past two games, after an 8 for 20 stretch.

“If we get the power play either of these last two games, we’re probably looking at more than one point,” he said. “The difference tonight is it got some looks, but again, the effort, the five-on-five play, the compete from the guys was really impressive.”

more on the game last night...


Time to fire Blashill? How can we have a dismal powerplay, when we are relatively healthy, and have added significant scoring talent to the roster, confirmed what we've said for the last 3 years, its coaching.


Just being my sarcastic self... btw if it improved over the last few seasons, coincidently as talent was added,  then the issue was not coaching at least in its entirety. 


It isn't dismal overall. They are ranked 19 of 32 teams, even after going 0 for 10 the last two games. If you can't see the significant improvement over the last few seasons, you aren't watching close enough.

Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
