Afternoon Line- Guy Boucher

“All our players, for me, they play left and right and centre’s play wing sometimes. That’s the way the game is now. It’s F1, F2 and F3. There’s no corridor anymore, that doesn’t exist in the NHL anymore. One shift you’re on the left, (then) you’re crossing over – it’s about supporting now and it’s about the closest man. It used to be that the centre is back-checking and is the low guy but you don’t have that anymore.

“It’s such a quick game and you need to be in the other team’s face right away, so you have no time to wait for the centreman who fell in the offensive zone or is changing to do his job down low. It doesn’t happen like that anymore.”

-Guy Boucher, head coach of the Ottawa Senators.  Sonny Sachdeva of Sportsnet has more on the Senators.
