Morning Line- Rick Tocchet

“The power play is horrendous, it’s really cost us, the effort on the power play’s not there.

“It’s the little things. I think the biggest thing as a power play guy, you get out there and you rest and you breathe — I’m just going to set it up, and I want to be the guy who shoots the puck — and it should be the opposite when you’re struggling.”

“Coaching 101, you try different things. You can switch chemistry guys, you can just do lines. Like, maybe I’ve got to bench a couple — I don’t want to do that, because if we’re gonna go anywhere, these guys got to get us out of it. So I want to make sure they understand that.

“I’d like to see some guys have accountability. Whether, ‘I’m the problem,’ or whatever, ‘I’m going to fix it by doing this.'”

-Rick Tocchet, head coach of the Arizona Coyotes after a 6-1 loss to the Calgary Flames.  Matt Layman of Arizona Sports has more on the game.
