Talked to Sam Gagner a year into COVID-19 pandemic: "You look at our situation, and you just kind of feel for everyone that is going through still a difficult time. We are just thankful to be back playing and do what we love to do."https://t.co/7u01mjznkb— Helene St. James (@HeleneStJames) March 11, 2021

Keys to the Game
Build off Tuesday
The kind of pace and structure from Tuesday will be crucial to staying in this one. Even then there are going to be breakdowns and responding to them will say a lot about whether this team is building that elusive identity we’ve been hoping for.
I’m stealing a key from the last GDU. The putrid PP is all the way up to just bad now that Detroit has been humming with the man advantage. they won’t get many chances, so capitalizing will go a long way.
Tampa doesn’t like getting hit. Nobody likes getting hit. Hit them.
